Simple laziness has spurred many culinary inventions, including the sandwich, the blender, and the pizza, which was invented as a way to wheel heavy ingredients from place to place. Transport your palate with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian-American fare and drinks at Falsetta’s Casa Nova.
The skilled chefs at Falsetta’s Casa Nova mingle Old and New World recipes in a menu laden with specialty pizzas, juicy steak, and burgers. To pep up palates, patrons can play table shuffleboard with crispy fried mushrooms ($5.99) or craft a topographical map of Pennsylvania atop a philly cheesesteak specialty pizza ($10.95–$14.99). As waiters arrive from beyond brick partitions, their arms release heaping plates of edible comfort, such as the spinach manicotti drenched in green-speckled cream sauce and bubbling blankets of cheese ($9.49). Half-pound burgers ($6.99) and pesto-encrusted salmon ($12.99) make tongues dance under the gleam of stained glass light fixtures, and the Jack Daniels–glazed filet mignon ($15.99) allows diners a rare peak into a Tennessee gentleman’s flask with 8 ounces of tender, charbroiled steak.
