When Pangaea—the earth's greatest rock supergroup—broke up, many fans blamed it on the high-heeled wiles of Europe's inseparable girlfriend, Italia. Discover a sweeter side to the globe's Yoko with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of wholesome Italian fare at Focaccia Restaurant.

The family-owned eatery serves up hearty Italian fare in its cozy Yonge and Bloor–area micro-raunt for lunch and dinner. Wrap your tentacles around an order of the grilled calamari and shrimp served with a tropical fruit salad ($12), or dig up the rich fungal flavour of the roasted portobello served with sweet-pepper salad, gorgonzola cheese, and a drizzling of pesto ($8). To crush a carbo craving, stick a fork into one of Focaccia's pasta plates, such as the penne with pancetta, onions, black olives, and chili, all blanketed in a rich vodka sauce ($16). The gentle chefs at Focaccia delicately bathe pan-baked Cornish hen in a rosemary pan jus alongside black-garlic mashed potatoes ($22) and help salmon rediscover its potential with an orange-maple glaze, a leek-mushroom ragout, and potatoes rosti ($24). The rack of lamb with truffle-infused fondant potatoes ($30) promises an elegant distraction from a droning dinner date or impending space-explorer try-outs.

The intimate eatery is nestled in a quaint Victorian manor and is an ideal place for a romantic date, or an unromantic date, such as September 19. Redeem this Groupon for a taste of your Italian unhomeland, or gift it to six characters in search of a supper. Reservations are required, so call ahead to claim your space.

Focaccia Restaurant

Chef Bill Iuele mixes red-wine and gorgonzola sauces to dribble across the traditional pan-fried and baked meats churned out by Focaccia Restaurant's kitchen. His dishes fill bellies in the cozy dining room of the converted eatery, which still retains some of the home-like charm and roughly 80.9164532 per cent of the walls with which it was first built.

Yummy food and friendly service. Plus, it's in a great location in a tucked away little house.
