A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savor pasta's forced flexibility with today's Groupon to Facello’s Tuscan Grill in Hernando. Choose between the following options:
For $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare for dinner.
For $7, you get $15 worth of Italian fare for lunch.
Led by Memphis native Sean Alford, Facello's chefs bubble fresh noodles, stir sweet sauces, and sauté seafood to create a menu replete with delectable Tuscan fare. Awaken appetites with a plate of beef carpaccio ($12), where thin slices of filet mignon mingle with capers and shallots under a drizzling shower of black truffle oil, a liquid more luxurious than the Monopoly Man's platinum-plated racecar. To ready a dish of tuna trentino ($16), chefs sauté angel-hair pasta to a fine crisp, toss sushi-grade tuna in spices, and dash the lot with a flavorful reduction of cucumber balsamic and citrus soy sauce. Enjoy the serenades of live music on Thursdays while partaking in a house favorite, the prosciutto-and-fontina grilled chicken ($15), which dresses marinated chicken in savory prosciutto pajamas, rests it on a bed of golden farfalle, and covers it in a garlic-cream-sauce blanket. Lunchtime offers cannelloni ($12), pasta tubes hugging creamy seafood, sherry tomato sauce, and pinups of Dante, or partake in a spread of ciabatta sandwiches ($8 each).
