By the age of seven, most children understand that Italian cooking can be enjoyed on a train, in a plane, with a fox, and in a box, but never with green eggs and ham in dad's favorite chair. Exercise prudent rhyming and dining with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Gio in Evanston.

Under brilliant murals and woodworked ceilings, nibblers can nosh on the authentic Italian fare hiding in between the lines of Gio's menu and pair it with drinks from the lengthy wine and liquor list. Sup on simple starters such as prosciutto di parma with melon ($7.95) or send romana bruschette—which includes cherry tomatoes, arugula, pesto, and parmeggiano—to replace the satiety stolen from your stomach ($5.95). Pizzas are pulled hot from a brick oven and made with Italian whole wheat, and range from the classic tomato sauce and buffala mozzarella ($11.95) to the Zanella, which keeps pescatarians satisfied with a variety of shellfish toppings ($13.95). Sunday through Thursday, patrons can stop in for a prix fixe meal that includes a starter, an entree, and a dessert ($22.95).
