Pasta became a staple of Italian fare after Emperor Caligula famously elevated a plate of lasagna to the Roman Senate. Feast on political recipes with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an Italian meal for two at Gennaro’s Ristorante in Glendale (up to a $118.88 total value). The meal includes:

  • One appetizer (up to a $14.95 value)
  • One salad (up to a $15.95 value)
  • Two entrees (up to a $27.99 value each)
  • Two glasses of house wine ($16 value each)

At Gennaro’s Ristorante, chefs have bedecked plates with an authentic menu of Italian pastas and grilled meats for more than a quarter century. Visitors introduce taste buds to dinner fare by tying on their tongue’s cummerbund and shaking hands with a verdant spinach salad crowned in pear and gorgonzola. Sips from goblets of house wine accent bites of meticulously prepared entrees such as pork medallions with a green peppercorn and cognac sauce, or salmon flanked with artichoke and mushrooms. Alternatively, fork-holders wrap their tines in tagliolini pasta, served with aquatic eats such as squid, shrimp, and tomato or cream sauce. After diners say goodnight, they pass through the marble-floored sitting room, where a wood-burning fireplace heats exteriors or the interiors of fire-eaters.

Gennaro’s Ristorante

Gennaro’s Ristorante has managed to stay open for nearly 30 years not only because of its menu of Italian pastas and grilled meats, but also because of its dedication to Italian-style hospitality. When guests first enter the eatery, they head to the sitting room—a cozy area with marble flooring where they can sit beside a roaring fire and sip Italian wines and creative cocktails from the bar.

They then head into the dining room for a night of devouring meticulously prepared entrees, such as pork medallions with a green-peppercorn-and-cognac sauce, or tagliolini pasta with squid, shrimp, and mussels. The inclusive restaurant caters to all types, offering a vegan menu and gluten-free options. While patrons eat, performers soothe the ears with classical piano or guitar music or gentle earlobe rubs.

Have you had a location suggested for dinner, and upon eating there, said MEH...What is wrong here? I'm not sure...average food for a lot of money. Completely uneventful.
