Though now praised for their edibility, noodles are equally cherished as the key ingredient in biodegradable dog leashes and tasteful angel wigs. Celebrate multitalented spaghetti strands with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine at Enne Cucina Italiana, located in San Clemente.
Recently featured in the San Clemente Times, Enne Cucina Italiana’s Italian-born chef, Nicola Bellazzi, whips up authentic cuisine culled from fresh, local ingredients to spell pasta-famished San Clementines. The menu, like Ferrari races held in the Colosseum, puts a new spin on the boot-heeled country’s classics—traditional cuisine such as the quattro formaggi rissoti ($16), rests alongside original dishes such as the gnocchi con la fonduta, with potato dumplings soaked in gorgonzola fondu, toasted pine nuts, and cream sauce ($14). Bellazzi also plucks the tastiest traditions from the family tree, employing recipes passed down from his mother, Lina, such as the beef-and-pork-stuffed lasagnetta di mamma Lina ($16).
Enne Cucina Italiana’s extensive wine list offers sippables from around the world, including Italian vine juices such as the Nero D' Avola La Ferla, fermented in Sicily ($8 a glass).
