A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savor pasta's forced flexibility with today's Groupon to Cara Mia Riverside Grill in Cocoa. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks during lunch.
- For $12, you get $25 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks during dinner.
Within the welcoming walls of a river-front dining room, a posse of deft chefs deliver classic Italian cuisine at Cara Mia Riverside Grill. After 5 p.m., the dinner menu beckons appetites with provolone pesto sticks wrapped in phyllo dough and baked until they’re as crispy and golden as a freshly baked doubloon ($8.95). The sautéed veal veneto heralds entree time with a party of pan-dancing scallions, shallots, mushrooms, artichokes, and capers in a white-wine lemon sauce, served over a thin pasta harvested from flocks of real angels ($16.95). Surf selections include lobster ravioli, topped with shrimp and a white tarragon cream sauce and sided by sautéed spinach ($18.95). The lunch menu offers midday options including flame-cooked personal pizzas ($6.95, toppings $0.50 each), pasta ($7.95–$10.95), and stromboli ($6.95).
Cara Mia’s cooking staff whips up dishes in an open kitchen available for viewing by waiting eaters, and the riverside view provides glimpses of elusive kayaking mermen.
