Pizzas trump sandwiches in that they openly display their toppings and are too big to absentmindedly stick in a cassette deck. Enjoy next-generation eats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and Italian fare at Giuseppe's La Cantina in Des Plaines.

The seasoned chefs at Giuseppe's La Cantina draw upon 45 years in business to fluff crusts and twirl pasta destined for Italian dishes lush with fresh ingredients. Buffalo-chicken pizzas ($12.55+) transmute the hunger-squelching power of the menu's chicken wings ($6.95+) into a bubbling pie laced with ranch dressing. Manicotti tunnels bulge with fresh cheese and rich sauce ($14.25), causing collectors of antique bibs to glance about nervously. Baby back ribs stray from the norms of the Italian kitchen table, liberating clouds of aromas more enticing than new-crockpot smell over heaped fries and garlic rolls ($21.50).

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.
