Italians are known for their Renaissance, their salad dressing, and their ability to make pasta dance to the tune of a flute. Trill some unsuspecting strands of wheaty goodness into your mouth with today’s deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine at Ciao Baby’s location in Massapequa or Commack. Ciao Baby was featured on Man v. Food.
Begin your trip down the meatball-lined sidewalks of Ciao Baby with a look at the menu of classic Italian eats. For antipasti, roll a homemade Sicilian rice ball filled with ground meat, peas, and plum-tomato sauce ($14.95) into your jaws. Lunch light with a member of the Wrap Pack, such as the Salsiccia Sammy (Italian sausage, tri-color peppers, and Vidalia onions sautéed in white wine and topped with mozzarella, $10.95), or lend some evening gravitas to your appetite with a dignified order for Nonna’s Old World Meat Platter (freshly made meatballs, hot or sweet sausage, and San Marzano tomato sauce atop macaroni; half $23.95, whole $33.95).
Ciao Baby’s Massapequa and Commack locations keep the nostalgic air circulating with classic décor, friendly, attentive service, and a roster of tunes that hearken back to the days of the wax stacks and high-riding slacks. Come in for a tasty trip back in time, where the flavors are as fresh as the temporal paradox that could result from accidentally eating the tomato that killed the woman your father would have married.
