A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savor pasta's forced flexibility with today's Groupon for Italian fare at Franconello Italian Restaurant. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of food and drinks on Friday or Saturday.
- For $20, you get $40 worth of food and drinks Sunday–Thursday.
Franconello Italian Restaurant’s menu conquers appetites with a selection of hearty Italian dishes harvested from rich cheeses, fresh veggies, and a menagerie of meats. The sausage Franconello sautées roasted sausage with garlic and four vegetables ($17), while the veal limone soaks amidst aromatherapy candles in a butter-and-lemon bath ($23). The chicken oreganato lands half a bird beside a pile of potatoes ($16.50), and the house-made gnocchi bakes under layers of marinara sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella ($17). A garlic white-wine sauce splashes the pork chop vesuvio ($19), for which diners are equipped with miniature chainsaws to slice through its 2.5–inch edifice, guarded heavily by a wall of roasted potatoes.
