The sudden onset of hunger pains is the leading cause of unfinished novels, canceled duels, and tied soccer matches. Today's Groupon employs delicious Italian cuisine to cut down on unfinished business: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Fratelli's Ristorante Italiano e Pizzeria in Montrose.
Inside Fratelli's Ristorante Italiano e Pizzeria's warmly decorated walls, owners Maurizio and Ruth Iacono serve authentic, cooked-to-order Italian cuisine in the tradition of their Sicilian ancestors. Launch tongue rockets with the garlic cheese bread, oven-baked and flanked by marinara sauce ($3.50), or pound fork gavels into the sampler platter, a smorgasbord of fried calamari, fried zucchini, chicken strips, and toasted ravioli paired with dipping sauces ($9.50).
Hands hungry for companionship can embrace of an italian sub with ham, salami, mortadella, mozzarella, pepperoncinis, and italian dressing ($4.75) or scoop up huge palmfuls of pasta primavera ($13.50, seasonal vegetables sautéed in a garlic white wine sauce). People-pleasing desserts such as the pizzelle fritte pastry topped with powdered sugar and chocolate ($3.50) play nicely with Fratelli's extensive wine list, which includes glasses of Poggio Basso chianti ($6.50), bottles of Maso Canali pinot grigio ($29), and glasses of house champagne ($5).
