The spaghetti-Western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of Western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Farro Italian Restaurant in Centennial.
Chef Matthew Franklin of Farro Italian Restaurant delights discerning palates with an extensive wine list and a menu of innovative Italian fare that won acclaim in the Denver Post. Catch a handcrafted, brick-oven-baked dough disk decorated with prosciutto, gorgonzola, and balsamic fig preserves ($12), or dive into spaghetti swimming with shrimp, scallops, mussels, and clams in a spicy red sauce ($17). The flat-iron steak, doused in gorgonzola butter and accompanied by a mountain of roasted Yukon Gold potatoes ($18), straightens out wrinkled tongues with an overload of savory flavors.
On the dessert menu, drunken chocolate mousse ($5) is served in a jar that mutes its slurred rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner." An imposing brick pizza oven surveys the action in the restaurant's cozy dining room, where diners converse among mood-enhancing hanging lights and cozy booths ideal for snuggling up to a date or building a fort out of uneaten pizza crusts.
