An in-depth knowledge of wine can enliven humdrum dinner parties, just as an in-depth knowledge of dynamite fishing can enliven foundering job interviews. Give palates an executive education with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get an Italian dinner for two at Giorgio’s Wine Bar (up to a $116.80 total value). The dinner includes:

  • Two appetizers or salads (up to a $15.95 value each)
  • Two entrees (up to a $19.95 value each)
  • One bottle of red or white house wine (up to a $45 value)

Giorgio’s Wine Bar’s experienced connoisseurs impart the subtleties of vino as customers sip fine wines and tantalize palates with a menu of classic Italian dishes. Patrons can jump-start dormant appetites with a portobello mushroom embellished with pineapple and goat cheese or the tricolor salad, a union of arugula, endive, and radicchio as prismatic as a tie-dyed stoplight. The Little Vegetable pizza delicately plants its garden of zucchini, broccoli, and spinach atop a thin crust, whereas penne noodles embrace sweet italian sausage and fresh garlic in a deluge of white-wine sauce. Throughout the meal, duos divvy up a full vessel of house wine culled from an inventory that, like a housecat’s stratagem for achieving world domination, changes nightly. The extensive array of varietals may include such staples as shiraz or sauvignon blanc. Black-and-white art photography hangs on white walls above the dark, wooden bar, which is back-dropped by wooden shelves lined with phalanxes of fine-wine bottles and a full selection of liquor.

Though Giorgio’s Wine Bar sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

1742 Wine Bar

The food-and-drink connoisseurs behind 1742 Wine Bar impart the subtleties of vino as customers sip fine wines and tantalize palates with a menu of classic Italian dishes. Thin-crust pizzas support fresh mozzarella and a choice of more than three dozen traditional and inventive toppings, such as jalapeño peppers, zucchini, and smoked gouda. To pair with the kitchen's crispy discs and other Italian classics—from panini to a gnocchi of the day—the staff cull bottles from an inventory that, like a housecat's stratagem for achieving world domination, changes nightly.

French doors and flower boxes welcome diners into a narrow storefront facing the sloping greenery of Ruppert Park. Inside, black-and-white art photography hangs above the dark, wooden bar, which is back-dropped by wooden shelves lined with phalanxes of fine-wine bottles and a full selection of liquor.

Customer Reviews

Food was decent, wine decent. Whites were better than decent actually. Generous pours. Appetizer average. Service excellent. Ambiance very good. Overall, a good budget date but don't expect top quality wine and food.

The bartender gave us a great selection of whites and reds with a very easy to understand description of each. The service was attentive and food was great! I'll definitely be back again!
