The best way to capture a wild, rampaging meal is to hook it with a gigantic pasta lasso. Test your throwin' arm with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine at Castel' Mare Ristorante in Whitestone.
With a multifarious menu made from authentic recipes and traditional specialties, Castel' Mare sates salivating hunger-havers with a variety of fresh fish, tender chicken, and hearty pasta dishes. Creamy goat cheese and piquant capers adorn the salty-sweet pairing of prosciutto-wrapped shrimp in the gamberi ripieno, a dining introduction more satisfying than an unwanted time-shares meeting on flatware ($9.50). Moist veal marsala is dusted in flour, strewn with mushrooms, and sautéed in wine ($17.50), while the fettuccine portobello employs robust alfredo sauce to coat chicken, mushrooms, peas, and pasta in a protective cheese layer, guarding flavors from envious onlookers and disobedient glasses of wine ($11.50). Owned and operated by the family Farruggio, Castel’ Mare provides a warm and cozy neighborhood option for fine Italian dining and socializing with friends, loved ones, or entire flocks of white-robed Druids.
