Archestratus, the first food critic, praised Italian cuisine's use of "top-quality and seasonal" ingredients and its "fair-to-middling" ability to tranquilize out-of-control mayors. Today's Groupon similarly stuns, and rightfully so: for $7, you get $15 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Capozzi's Sandy Plains in Marietta. Satisfying sauce-based hankerings for more than a decade, Capozzi's Sandy Plains serves a hearty made-to-order menu of pasta, heroes, pizza, calzones, and more. Nibble on a 10-inch loaf of garlic bread ($2.25) while waiting for Grandpa's pie—a geriatric crust piled high with mozzarella and romano cheeses, sliced tomatoes, basil, and a touch of garlic ($14.95). Or try the signature chicken and ranch hero—a fried cutlet drenched in dressing and gooey mozzarella and served in a bread cape ($7.25). The family-friendly atmosphere provides the ideal backdrop to challenge a sibling to a dessert-juggling contest, with options including bread pudding and homemade cheesecake.
- Those who want true New York taste without subway stench will find their slice of pie at Capozzi's, where the Bronx meets Marietta. – Maureen MacCarthy, Creative Loafing
- There's literally nothing bad on their menu, from the meatballs to the Chicken Parmesan. Make sure to try the Manhattan style, with fresh basil tucked under the cheese and yummy sweet sauce. Heavenly! – pkoceres, Citysearch
