Simple laziness has spurred many culinary inventions, including the sandwich, the blender, and the pizza, which was invented as a way to wheel heavy ingredients from place to place. Transport your palate with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of authentic Italian cuisine from Cicciotti’s Trattoria Italiana & Seafood in Cardiff-by-the-Sea.

At Cicciotti’s Trattoria, chef Gaetano Cicciotti and his staff of kitchen craftsmen wood-fire pizza crusts and sauté fresh seafood to concoct a menu of authentic Italian dishes from original recipes. Diners can bite through the tender pasta packaging of the tiger-shrimp-topped lasagna di mare ($20) to reach savory layers of salmon, white sea bass, and crab or unearth deeply buried fears of animatronic sharks. A pizza gamberi fra diavolo coats tongues in savory chopped shrimp and spicy tomato sauce ($18.50), and plump potato dumplings cannonball into a pool of fragrant cheese sauce in the gnocchi al gorgonzola ($13.50). In addition, an extensive wine list helps patrons match their meal with a compatible vintage for a gustatory blind date.

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.

Absolutely incredible food! Our server James was excellent and made a few dish recommendations on the menu - everything he suggested was fabulous! Salads, main entrees, desserts were full of flavor and top notch! I had the cannoli for dessert - been years since I had a good cannoli. Thank you for a wonderful evening! We will certainly be back!
