What You'll Get

Pioneering Italians were not only the first to put tomatoes in cuisine, they were also the first people to take photographs of themselves pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Delight in their inventiveness with today's Groupon at Gargi’s Lakeside on North Orange Avenue. Choose between the following options:

  • For $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare at dinner.
  • For $7, you get $15 worth of Italian fare at lunch.

Gargi’s Lakeside offers a mixed menu of classics and modern spins on Italian cuisine in an elegant bistro-style setting. For dinner, start with mussels alla romano, steamed in pinot grigio ($12 at dinner, $11 at lunch) or a despotic yet popular caesar salad ($6 at dinner, $5 at lunch). Dinner entrees include comfort favorites like the homemade gnocchi á la Gargi’s baked with eggplant, green peas, gorgonzola, and a touch of marinara ($15).

High-noon hunger-havers can munch on more casual options like curried chicken salad with celery, raisins, and grapes on a loving bed of romaine hearts ($11) or a chicken panini with roasted portabella, red peppers, mozzarella, and pesto mayonnaise ($10). Pair toothsome purchases with wines available by the glass, including the Linea Margherita pinot grigio or the Rosemont merlot ($5 each).

Located just a few minutes from downtown, Gargi’s dark wood furnishings and white linen tablecloths create a romantic, elegant setting, and the patio’s rustic, lumberjack-friendly natural-wood finish offers excellent views of the sunset over Lake Ivanhoe.

  • with a patio with such an incredible setting (why anyone would choose to dine inside here is beyond me), this is a place you should consider for a downtown meal. – Scott Joseph, Scott Joseph's Orlando Restaurant Guide

About Gargi’s Lakeside

Gargi’s Lakeside opened its doors in 1987, and out came the soft notes of classic crooners including Frank Sinatra and Perry Como, along with weekend sessions of live music. These smooth musical notes set the mood for Italian feasts filled with platters of fresh gnocchi, eggplant parmesan, and filet mignon. The wait staff gives each patron personalized attention by recommending entrees and drink pairings from the two full bars. Each of these libation locales presents a wine list featuring varietals from Italy, Chile, and California. In the interior dining area, candlelit tables cluster near three sprawling windows overlooking Lake Ivanhoe. The outdoor dining area, meanwhile, grants front-row views of the orange and red Florida sunsets.
