What You'll Get
The best pizzas, like the worst Elvis impersonators, are cheesy, saucy, and often live in cardboard boxes. Sink your teeth into a doughy classic with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of casual Italian dinner fare and drinks at Central Pizzeria in Somerville.
For more than 55 years, the Verdicchio family has satisfied appetites for Italian fare with a menu of expertly crafted pizzas, sandwiches, pastas, and house-made sauces. Pies are selectively bred into a mouthwatering menagerie of red- and white-sauce specimens, such as the bacon-topped bianca romano ($10.50–$16.95) and the pleasantly pastoral garlic-and-basil pizza rustica ($9.75–$14.95). Sandwiches, pastas, and entrees—such as a tantalizing pollo valdostana ($15.95) served in a white-wine-and-cream sauce—grace plates with flavorful aplomb, and a full quiver of wine, beers, and coffee beverages eagerly awaits matchmaking with sought-after meals.
As diners enjoy servings of homestyle Italian cooking, the white brick walls, soft-light wall sconces, and hardwood floors of the dining room cultivate an elegantly laid-back atmosphere. An old-fashioned bar rings in an era of good feelings, accented with richly varnished wood, crowned with a glistening rack of wine and cocktail glasses, and carved with the initials of at least four Roman emperors.
