Despite its prevalence of sentient mushrooms and fireball-based cooking, Super Mario Brothers is not considered to be an accurate depiction of the Italian dining experience. Bounce into a true culinary kingdom with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian dinner fare at Coach Light Trattoria, located on West Pennsylvania Avenue in Southern Pines.
Executive Chef Nathan Gibbs, a 20-year kitchen veteran, oversees the kitchen works, releasing darts of culinary expertise to puncture the mouth’s saliva-balloons. The extensive dinner menu pays respect to Old World standbys such as fruttare di mare with sautéed scampi, scallops, mussels, clams, calamari, and yellow-fin tuna ($19 à la carte, $25 trattoria style), while making way for fresh takes on Italian cuisine such as the chicken involtini, a boneless breast filled and rolled with prosciutto di parma, provolone, and spinach ($16 à la carte, $22 trattoria style). The family-friendly atmosphere is lit from within by subtle, classic décor featuring neutral-hued walls, an overhead chandelier, and wooden furnishings. Huddle around the fireplace while enjoying hearty eats with hearth-bound pals, a loved one, or a famished Elizabethan yeoman.

- Worth the trip. The service is amazing, everyone is clearly a restaurant professional. Every bit of every course was absolutely delicious. The tiramisu is highly recommended. – Jeremy, Urbanspoon
- We had a wonderful meal - especially the artichoke & goat's cheese soup. Plenty to eat, fresh and tasty! We will definitely be visiting this restaurant again. – OpenTable.com user who dined on October 15, 2010
