Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savory blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons. Get a baron's share of this desirable concoction with today's Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Dolce Amore Café in Delray Beach.
Executive chef Giuliano Zaratin expands on the culinary traditions of his Italian-born parents with a menu of gourmet dishes crafted from house-prepared pastas, meats, and cheeses. Ask a passing server to photograph you beside the eggplant caprese's delicate tiers of eggplant, beefsteak tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella ($10.95). Move on to a sumptuous salad such as the chicken milanese, heaped with plum tomatoes, black olives, and red onions under a breaded cutlet ($17.95).
For an entree, furnish your cuisine compartment with the lightly floured veal scaloppini, layered with gobs of prosciutto and mozzarella in a mushroom white-wine cream sauce ($21.95). Ravenous appetites can besiege the pasta alla bolo, garrisoned with homemade sweet sausage, meatballs, and braised beef ribs and promised a chapter in the annals of history by a charismatic vodka cream sauce ($17.95).
Diners enjoy attentive, old-fashioned service in a dining room checkered with sky blues and pale oranges. Crown the feast with a glass of Due Torri pinot grigio ($7.50) from an extensive wine list before taking a stroll through the vibrant Pineapple Grove art district. Dolce Amore Café extends its family love to the community at large, donating to myriad local causes, furnishing churches and synagogues with its authentic eats and remaining an active member of the chamber of commerce. Call ahead to make reservations or state reservations about the town's plan for a statue of pouting James Van Der Beek.
