What You'll Get
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 $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Italian fare and non-alcoholic drinks at Cinelli's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria. This Groupon is valid at the new Cary location in MacGregor Village only.
Referencing family recipes jotted down in a small village south of Rome, the cooks at Cinelli's Restaurant and Pizzeria use fresh ingredients to bolster a menu of authentic Italian fare. Culinary wizards bake mozzarella cheese to a golden brown to accent the ziti with ricotta and tomato sauce ($9.50), and the lasagna with ricotta, meat sauce, and sheets of pasta stacked by a street magician. Teeth can chomp on the thin crust of Grandma's pizza after it collects sprinklings of mozzarella, plum tomatoes, fresh garlic, and herbs ($15.95 for an extra-large). The family dinner menu supplies generous portions of classic dishes including ravioli with meat sauce ($19.50), and half a chicken parmesan sandwich coupled with fries ($5) can nip lunchtime hungers in the bud. Servers whisk plates to dining areas that include a brightly lit interior and a patio with seats peppered across a floor made of bricks, which diners can toss through nearby windows to remind homeowners to call the glass repairman.

About Cinelli's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria
The cooks at Cinelli's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria craft New York-inspired classic and modern Italian entrees, including tilapia encrusted with crabmeat, filet gorgonzola, tortellaci—a homemade beef and veal dumpling—in a wild-mushroom ragout with truffle oil, and a goat-cheese-stuffed portobello mushroom topped with arugula, fire-roasted peppers, and balsamic reduction. Their success has allowed them to spread across multiple locations, each of which also serves New-York-style pizza.
