Common indications of hunger include irritability and loud growls, symptoms that are eerily similar to being tackled by a gaggle of kindergarteners. Treat tummies tenderly with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Caruso's Cucina Italiana in North Hills.
Caruso's Cucina Italiana whips up authentic Italian fare within the family-friendly eatery. The extensive menu features a flock of sharable, family-style pastas, seafood, and pizza, sure to satisfy an entire brood of unpredictable palates. Starters such as steamed mussels ($7.95) and caesar salad ($6.95) tackle a taste-bud topiary before a main mouth event of breaded eggplant marinara topped with mushrooms and mozzarella ($8.50 for lunch, $14.95 for dinner). Wrap mitts around the number four baked calzone stuffed with olives, fresh tomatoes, ricotta, and mozzarella ($10.90), or try a steak-and-pepper sandwich coupled with fries or a small salad ($9.95). Pie-eyed patrons can give the moon something to sing about with a slice of pizza brushed with olive oil, fresh tomatoes, and mozzarella, and mad food scientists can opt for extra ingredients to create large, no-named monster pies.
