While Italy's resemblance to a boot is remarkable, other countries rarely get credit for their uncanny shapes, such as Australia's moon-rock resemblance and Great Britain's dead-on impression of an island. Celebrate more delicious worldly shapes with today's Groupon to Fanzorelli's Restaurant & Lounge in Brampton. Choose between the following options:
• For $10, you get $20 worth of lunch and drinks weekdays until 3 p.m.
• For $17, you get $35 worth of dinner and drinks.
Since 1989, Fanzorelli's Restaurant & Lounge has intoxicated hungry senses with authentic Italian dishes complemented by a world-spanning wine list. Make old seahorse flames jealous by fawning over an appetizer platter of steamed mussels ($8), or whisper sweet deep-sea nothings to the tomato-sauce-infused grilled calamari ($11). The lunch menu at Fanzorelli's features an array of focaccia sandwiches ($10–$11) along with pasta centrepieces such as the veal- and pork-loaded rigatoni al forno ($11). Entree attractions dazzle dinnertime flocks with specialties including Angus strip loin in cognac-peppercorn sauce ($25) and chicken parmigiana ($21). The eatery's nimble chefs spin and toss house pizza options ($14–$16) such as the quattro stagione—which layers prosciutto on top of a mushroom and artichoke foundation—and custom-topped pizzas ($8+). Always baked in an old-world-style wood-burning oven, the pizzas at Fanzorelli's emerge invigorated from their dough-crisping saunas and ready to satiate.
Diners can take in the easy atmosphere and mural-painted walls at Fanzorelli's while exploring the wine list, which herds together vineyard aromas from around the world. Single glasses include red and white house wines ($6.50) and Baroncini chianti ($7.95). Patrons who still haven't cashed in their sweet teeth with a home-invading fairy can relish one of the decadent desserts, such as the espresso-tinged tiramisu or the creamy chocolate-raspberry truffle cake (both $6.25).
The restaurant is closed Sundays from the long weekend in May to the long weekend in September.
