When daydreams turn into nightdreams of red-sauce rivers and cheesy, doughy banks, the id is telling the mouth that it's time for a piping-hot piece of pizza. Today's Groupon puts a slice into waking hands: for $10, you get $25 worth of pizza pies, pasta, burgers, sandwiches, and more at Cefalu's Pizza. Your Groupon is redeemable for dine-in or carryout exclusively at the Old Town outpost of the pizzeria.
The family-run eatery offers up a fresh menu of pizza, pasta, and sandwiched sustenance for lunch and dinner. Pass around a plate of the fried-cheese ravioli ($6) to jump-start a monthly mechanics' club meeting, before moving on to the main course. Cefalu's offers over 20 toppings to sprinkle on your round supper ($9.99 for 12", $12.99 for 16", $1.49–$1.99 for each topping), but if topping talks grow tense, opt for a pre-designed pie such as Cefalu's Special ($15.99 for 12"), covered in artichoke, pepperoncini, ham, onion, and olive. Plated pastas ($6.99+), cheeseburgers ($8.49), and savory sandwiches such as the San Diego sirloin cheesesteak ($7.49), blanketed in spicy nacho cheese and jalapeños, complete the menu, offering pizza-protesters a bevy of topographical alternatives.
Cefalu's boasts a lively, casual atmosphere, with comfortably padded banquettes, a slanted-roofed dining room, and twinkling white lights that lend the eatery a soft and comforting glow. Hanging over Cefalu's full bar is an awe-inspiring 40-inch TV that periodically broadcasts local sports games and much-awaited chapters of Masterpiece Theater in high-def. So spend a romantic evening flirtatiously fighting over the last slice of piping-hot pie, or stop in briefly to abscond with a fresh dinner to go.
Five Yelpers gave Cefalu's Pizza a tasty 4 stars:
- To our delight the crust was light, airy & crispy while the gooey cheese was perfectly proportioned to the amount of spicy pepperoni on top. – Teresa M., Yelp
- to me the burger was special. yum yum. we had pizza and pasta and sandwiches and the fried pickle appetizer was yummy along with the garlic cheese bread (superb). – maryann r., Yelp
