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 $15, you get $30 worth of fresh fare and drinks at des, located in Gainesville. An enticing blend of traditional family recipes and contemporary culinary practices inform Desiderio's diverse menu of gourmet salads, pasta plates, entrees, and more. Sautéed anchovies and apples lend their complementary flavors to the signature mussels angelo platter ($13), and fresh parmesan, ricotta, and house-made mozzarella cheeses help puff the pillows and sleep scores of handmade ravioli ($13). Satisfy a thirsty throat with something from the wine list.

Reviews

Yelpers give Desiderio Italian-American Grill a four-star average:

  • I had the veal parmesean - absolutely succulent. – Amanda R.
  • Desiderio's take on lasagne [sic] was such a refreshing change. You could tell the ingredients were fresh, & the recipe provided a nice depth of complex flavors. True comfort food! – Kathie H.

About Desiderio Italian-American Grill


The chefs at Desiderio Italian-American Grill hand-roll meatballs, sprinkle spices into the house marina, and fill plates with ravioli shells. They craft every dish using the family recipes of owners Rick Marrero and Victor Rodriguez, creating ricotta cheesecake and Grandma Joanie's meatballs, which blend veal, pork, and beef. What isn't crafted in-house is still handmade—the cannolis arrive fresh from Artuso Pastry, a bakery in the Little Italy neighborhood of the Bronx. The restaurant's dining space extends to an outdoor patio, which shades patrons with an awning, trees, and a cumulus cloud tethered to the roof.
