What You'll Get


Italians gave people pizza and lasagna to feast upon and The Last Supper to remind them not to dally about it. Heed the subtext of da Vinci's artful pro-scarfing statement with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pasta, pizza, seafood, and more at Giuseppe's La Cantina in Des Plaines.

Founded by an Italian immigrant in 1963 and still operated by his family today, Giuseppe's La Cantina unleashes the savory flavors of everyone’s favorite boot-mimicking landmass. Celebrated 10-inch, individual pizzas such as the margherita ($9.50 for lunch, $11.55 for dinner) and meat lovers ($10.65 for lunch, $12.55 for dinner) burst with vibrant tastes like the sadly discontinued edible firecracker. Pastaficionados can take refuge in a menu full of noodly jewels, selecting their favorite pasta and then pairing it with a choice from the impressive array of sauces, including creamy alfredo ($13) and spicy arrabiatta ($10.50). Sautéed in wine sauce and fresh mushrooms, the veal marsala ($22.50) glistens with succulence, and the linguine di pesce ($22.50) bathes aquatic edibles such as shrimp, calamari, and mussels in either marinara or white-wine sauce. Spruced up with tasteful art and leafy accents, the restaurant’s refined interior establishes an elegant setting for a romantic evening with a loved one or a strictly business luncheon with the rude crane operator you somehow became handcuffed to.

About Giuseppe’s La Cantina


Though Giuseppe, the cofounder and namesake of Giuseppe’s La Cantina, passed on in 2005, his children still helm the restaurant in his honor. As a result, it’s no coincidence that the restaurant pulsates with a homey ambiance. The 50-year-old eatery has been in the Brunetti family since 1963, boasting menus and recipes passed down from family members in their native Italy. An appetizer of Italian antipasto leads diners to family specialties, such as eggplant giovanna topped with mozzarella and lasagna layered with ricotta and ground beef. Each day the Brunettis’ offerings continue to tempt locals with the family’s rich sauces, succulent meats, and seafood so proud to be on the menu it enters the oven willingly.
