Italy has given us legendary works of art, from the evocative paintings of Caravaggio and da Vinci to the miniature meat sculptures of Boyardee. Admire edible Italian masterpieces with today’s Groupon to Dantessa Italian Restaurant & Bar. Choose form the following options:


Dantessa Italian Restaurant & Bar supplements its scratch-made Italian cuisine with a wide-ranging list of imported wines. A waft of herbs and a visit from the town crier announce the approach of freshly made pasta entrees at dinner time, such as the marriage of prosciutto and fettuccine in the cream sauce-tossed parma ($14.99), or the pomodoro style pollo dolloped with classic Italian-style tomato gravy and fresh rosemary ($13.99). Most Dantessa menu items can be prepared gluten-free upon request, with conscientious chefs cooking the glutenless corn pastas in separate pans to prevent allergen infiltration and star-crossed affairs between the fusilli and the rigatoni.

In addition to authentic Old World thin-crust pizzas, which grace both the lunch and dinner menus, midday meals in Dantessa’s modern, green-walled dining space lead with antipasti platters that include basil-dashed bruschetta with goat cheese ($9.29). Noontime noshers are also greeted by a roster of wraps, such as house-made meatball ($11.99) and the roasted garlic-suffused mixed vegetable ($10.99), which encases zesty Italian flavours into convenient little packages more deftly than Alberti’s proudest invention, the pizza crust fanny pack.

Out server was wonderful and attentive, and although the restaurant was quite busy, he gave us all the time we needed to finish our wine at the end of our meal.
