Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savoury blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons. Get a baron's share of this desirable concoction with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale Italian fare and drinks at Grotto Lounge, formerly called Calisto on College Street.

Calisto plates up authentic, elegant Italian classics with creative tweaks, serenading taste buds alongside an extensive wine list. Ravenous diners will find crowd favourites on the menu, such as ravioli and individual stone-baked pizzas nestled next to fresh seafood, beef, and adventuresome pastas. Nab a domiziano pizza, with mozzarella, tomatoes, grilled zucchini, eggplant, and fire-roasted red peppers ($15.50), or dig into the popular osso bucco—veal shank cut across the bone, braised, then simmered in a spiced wine reduction ($18.75). A full bar slakes thirsts with such lip-smacking selections as the mango caipirissma, a strong, sweet concoction of gold rum and fresh mango juice ($10). Chic, modern seating and romantic lighting offer a new chance to propose—this time, without the Jumbotron.

Reviews

WorldWeb Travel Guide featured Calisto, and 93% of Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant:

  • Diners can find this little gem in Little Italy standing out from many other area wine bars. Deriving its name from a cave in Italy, this establishment has tried to recreate that type of atmosphere with domed, rough walls. – WorldWeb Travel Guide
  • Our food was quick and delicious – pauly, Urbanspoon
