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 to Fortesa Restaurant in Rochester. Choose between the following options:

At Fortesa, diners entwine forks with specialty pastas and Italian staples on an outdoor patio that overlooks downtown Rochester and Paint Creek or inside a dining room lit with elevated candelabras. After perusing the menu, friends and families can acclimate taste buds to the flavors of Italy with a house side salad and the shrimp fortesa with garlic-and-lemon sauce. Diners then sink their fangs into the potato-parmesan gnocchi with truffle oil or don flippers to justify the freshness of the lobster-, shrimp-, and crabmeat-laden seafood fettuccine. Carve up a filet mignon in a truffle demu-glace or slice through the deep-maroon center of perfectly cooked lamb chops ai ferri in a port wine reduction.
