What You'll Get
The spaghetti-western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of Italian fare and wine at Cicciotti's Trattoria Italiana & Seafood. Chef Gaetano Cicciotti uses a collection of his own original recipes to craft each Italian classic on this cozy eatery's menu. Let taste buds referee a saucy battle pitting salmon, white sea bass, and crab against savage tiger shrimp with the lasagna di mare ($20). Meanwhile, hungry herbivores can nosh on gnocchi al gorgonzola—potato dumplings served in a walnuty sea of gorgonzola cheese sauce ($13.50). Prosciutto, sage, and mozzarella complement the veal scaloppini ($20), and Cicciotti's also serves pizza, chicken, fish, and plenty of vegetarian selections. An extensive wine list of expertly aged grape guts can be ordered by the glass ($6–$12.95) or bottle, or, if you're feeling bold, the fire hose.

About Cicciotti's Trattoria Italiana & Seafood
At Cicciotti’s Trattoria Italiana & Seafood, chef and author Gaetano Cicciotti and his staff of kitchen craftsmen wood-fire pizza crusts and sauté fresh seafood using original recipes. Like Pac-Man’s Italian relatives, diners chomp their way through morsels of tender pasta mixed with mouthwatering ingredients such as creamy tiger shrimp, homemade meatballs, sun-dried tomatoes, and a creamy gorgonzola pesto sauce. Noodle-free fare includes chicken, veal, and seafood, which arrives shrouded in white-wine sauce or cloaked in mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce. In addition, an extensive wine list helps patrons match their meal with a vintage vino for a duo of flavors that’s more dynamic than a Bruce Willis and Mr. Peanut buddy-cop flick.
