Simple laziness has spurred many culinary inventions, including the sandwich, the blender, and the pizza, which was invented as a way to wheel heavy ingredients from place to place. Transport your palate with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Carino’s Italian, valid at two locations in El Paso.
The gastronomic gurus at Carino's handcraft an extensive menu flourishing with authentic Italian recipes and bold flavors. Sicilian Fire Sticks ($8.99) stoke appetite fires like Super Mario’s flying fireballs, swaddling spicy italian sausage, chicken, and jalapeños in crispy tomato-basil tortillas. Hearty pasta plates include the homemade baked lasagna ($11.99) that, like your bed during winter’s coldest months, teems with layers of steaming pasta, italian sausage, and meat sauce. A hodgepodge of handmade dough supports DIY pizzas in the create-your-own option ($9.99), or patrons can opt for preconceived concoctions such as the classic margherita festooned in slices of juicy roma tomatoes and fresh basil. For their finale, forks nosedive into delectable mini desserts, such as italian chocolate cake ($2), drizzled in sweet icing and accompanied by a dollop of rich vanilla ice cream.
