The sudden onset of hunger pains is the leading cause of unfinished novels, canceled duels, and tied soccer matches. Today's Groupon employs delicious Italian cuisine to cut down on unfinished business: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Casa Milla Ristorante, located in Elm Park. Casa Milla's home-style cooking fills platters and stomachs with fresh ingredients, fine flavors, and the cozy, accompanying liquids that only a family-owned-and-operated neighborhood restaurant could provide. Feast on the pasta, seafood, and mightily meaty meats off the dinner menu, and then complement any selection with an Italian wine ($16+ per bottle). Notable noshables include fried calamari ($8.95), manicotti con ricotta ($11.95), and the turf-taming sirloin steak ($21.95).
Mill House Restaurant
Mill House Restaurant's stonework builds up a façade that lends the eatery a traditional flair that perfectly synchronizes with its menu of Old-World Italian dishes. In the kitchen, chefs ladle marinara, white-wine, and cream sauce over fresh, piping-hot pasta and seafood, along with classic cuts of veal, chicken, and pork. The kitchen doesn't scrimp on dessert, either, and prepares each offering from scratch so customers can end meals on a sweet note by pairing their sugary treat with a house-made cappuccino or the faces of unsuspecting dining partners.
