A perfect table setting requires pristine linens and polished cutlery, except at off-Broadway restaurants where waiters set every table in postapocalyptic Vienna. Avoid avant-garde eating with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and drinks at DiMille's Italian Restaurant.
DiMille's Italian Restaurant's cooks draw on family recipes when crafting pasta, pizza, and Italian dishes from scratch daily. Taste buds high-five gleefully after soaking in the robust flavor three-cheese lasagna ($9.25 for half; $10.25 for full) or sampling an elegant nest of angel hair pasta ($13.95). DiMille's deep-dish pizza blankets its dough base with meat or veggie sauce and four toppings ranging from asparagus spears to salami morning stars ($24.75, serves four to six). The calorie-averse can seek out a low-carb thin-crust pie, which bundles meatballs and spinach in fresh mozzarella cheese ($14.75 for medium; $17.75 for large), or dig into 10-inch italian or wheat rolls, which house a medley of veggies in the vegetarian sandwich ($7.75).
