Almost as pleasurable as a restaurant's food are the little rituals that go along with it: perusing the menu, anticipating the meal, and hiding under the table and grabbing passing waiters by their ankles. Drink in the whole experience with this Groupon.

Calandra's Il Vecchio Cafe

It would be easy to spend an entire day at Calandra's Italian Village. Whether its sampling a cannoli at the famous bakery, perusing Italian imports in the market, lingering over a cup of pistachio gelato in the gelateria, or sipping on a glass of wine at the bar... there is something for everyone. Customers who stroll to the far left of the Village stumble upon Il Vecchio Cafe, where Italian tapestries adorn the walls and diners converse over wooden tabletops while enjoying unlimited loaves of Calandra's famous bread. Servers dart across the sunlit floors, bearing plates of homemade rigatoni bolognese, eggplant caprese panini, rice balls, and sole oreganata. A counter overlooks the kitchen, where a wood-burning oven bakes thin-crust pizzas. Wooden beams and vintage-style walls enclose the tabletops, creating the look of a rustic Italian countryside. Il Vecchio Cafe also offers an al fresco dining option in a vineyard-like setting, where customers can enjoy a meal on the outdoor patio and bar.
