Pioneering Italians were not only the first to put tomatoes in cuisine, they were also the first people to take photographs of themselves pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Delight in their inventiveness with today's Groupon to Grisanti's's Lincoln location. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare during dinner.
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Italian fare during lunch.
Grisanti's serves up succulent seafood, steaks, pasta, and Italian-style desserts in an open, spacious atmosphere. Stop in midday for lunch, and dig into a prime-rib sandwich, which boasts medium-well meat, onion straws, provolone cheese, and jus ($7.99), or feast on the flavor of tradition with manicotti marinara ($8.79). Dinner demolishes belly emptiness with savory selections, including the shrimp and salmon fettuccine adorned with roma tomatoes, red onions, spinach, and a parmesan cream sauce ($10.69). Like peanut butter and jelly or Huck Finn and Diane Sawyer, the prime rib ($15.99 for 10 oz.) forms part of a classic duo, arriving alongside a pile of garlic mashed potatoes. Dig into a delectable dessert, such a limoncello tiramisu ($4.99) or cherry-chocolate cake ($4.89), to sate sweet teeth and tonsils. Grisanti's attentive staff members boast a friendly attitude, tending to their customers' polite requests as well as their gardens' insolent daffodils.
The family behind Grisanti's draws upon nearly four decades in business while crafting Italian dishes from recipes they’ve developed through the years. Wreaths of steam twist around chefs as they sprinkle spices into homemade soups, and eggplant parmesan cooks to the golden color of an alchemist’s business card. Hickory-smoked gouda, parmesan, and romano cheeses melt across pizzas, complemented by red and white wines from California and Italy. The glasses sing together in toasts in the restaurant's open storefront or private dining rooms modeled after scenic Italian locales such as a Venetian courtyard and Super Mario's chalet.:m]]
