Archestratus, the first food critic, praised Italian cuisine's use of "top-quality and seasonal" ingredients and its "fair-to-middling" ability to tranquilize out-of-control mayors. Today's Groupon similarly stuns, and rightfully so: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Italian fare and drinks at Cibo in Upper Arlington.

Cibo's chefs curate a sophisticated menu, artistically reimagining traditional Italian flavors in bold, contemporary recipes. Chefs layer sliced tomatoes with thick-cut medallions of mozzarella in each eye-catching caprese salad ($8), tucking basil between layers before sending basil oil and balsamic vinegar waltzing across the top. House-made gnocchi plays a cunning cupid to match the flavors of beef braciole with a coy tomato ragu ($16), and marinated, wood-grilled lamb chops hospitably host a dried-fruit mostarda ($28). Servers uncork bottles from Cibo's stockpile of dozens of red, white, and sparkling wines. Guests can also sip on a solo glass, such as the Franciscan chardonnay, powerfully fragranced with apple, pear, and honey, coming to a creamy decrescendo with notes of vanilla ($10).

Guests at Cibo feast in Roman-style comfort, reveling at long, dark tables, close to a cozy fire, or secreting away to more secluded seating. Backlit strings of deconstructed chandelier crystals shimmer like icicle lights, and exposed brick walls match Italy’s lived-in atmosphere and inherent fear of vinyl siding.
