For centuries, pizza and pasta battled for the title of Italy’s most beloved dish, an honor that was ultimately bestowed upon Sophia Loren. Cast your vote for the Boot’s best culinary creation with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet brick-oven pizza, wine, and Italian fare at Due Forni.
Due Forni's executive chef Carlos Buscaglia crafts crispy Neapolitan-style and soft Roman-style pizzas in custom brick ovens, infusing each delicious disc with Italian-imported ingredients in unexpected combinations. San Marzano tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala intertwine with bacon, peppers, and house-made sausage in the Due Forni pizza ($15.95), and lonely cheeses finally find friends in the Quattro Formaggi ($15.95). Dine on meat-free fare with the Margherita pizza ($12.95), or stuff cheek pockets with the Tartufo, filled with black truffles and roasted cremini mushrooms lounging beneath an over-easy baked egg ($20.95). More than 30 wines available by the bottle, glass, or industrial vat can pique patrons' palates ($7.95+/glass, $32+/bottle), and on-hand Enomatic wine dispensers ensure that each of the vineyard varieties reaches the table in its freshest form.
Muted, modern décor, open brick surfaces, soft lighting, and an outdoor patio add elegance to Due Forni's Italian atmosphere. Brick ovens steal the scene in the open kitchen that overlooks the dining room, prompting contract disputes with the refrigerator and the dishwasher, and spaghetti westerns and 60s crime dramas splay across flat-screen televisions in the intimate bar area.
Due Forni captivates diners with a menu of authentic Italian antipasti and brick oven pizzas culled from imported ingredients and the masterpiece recipes from executive chef Carlos Buscaglia. San Marzano tomatoes and buffalo-milk mozzarella top Neapolitan pies—known for their bubbly, chewy crusts—or Roman pizzas, which are famous for their cracker-thin crust and Republican system of government. Patrons munch on beet and goat cheese salad and carpaccio plates, or sample a diverse array of more than 40 vinos at the wine bar as they enjoy the sounds of upbeat Italian jazz. Pastas include a daily lasagna and classics like ravioli with a savory fall twist: butternut squash crema, brown butter sage, and spiced pecans. Entrees include new york steak, sea bass, and game hen served with roasted root vegetables and creamy polenta in a red wine reduction. Spaghetti Westerns play on high-definition flat-screen TVs throughout the earth-hued and orange space, and an open kitchen fills the main dining area with the exciting sights and sounds of masterful foodcraft.
