One of the great simple pleasures of travelling abroad is stumbling upon a restaurant frequented by locals, followed closely by bathing in gelato and loudly explaining why everything in Canada is better. Replicate that feeling with this Groupon.

Fraticelli's Italian Grill & Lounge
At Fraticelli's Italian Grill & Lounge, imported Italian plum tomatoes, extra-virgin olive oil, and freshly grated cheeses shape a menu of robustly flavored Italian cuisine. Chefs age Angus-beef steaks for 28 days, marinate them in olive oil and herbs, and then sear the succulent cuts Tuscan-style: over high heat on a wood-fired grill. They prepare pastas in multiple styles that reflect regions across Italy, from Sicilian-style seafood pasta to northern egg noodles ladled with slow-cooked meat sauce. Neapolitan-style pizza crusts stay thin by baking quickly in a stone oven at 750 degrees, which adds crispness while maintaining some of the original flavors of toppings such as roasted pickled eggplant.
Every Thursday and Saturday evening, diners can retreat to the piano lounge for live music. In the main dining room, companions nestle into booths separated by gauzy curtain partitions and electric fields.
