What You'll Get
As its name suggests, romantic dining traces its roots back to Rome, when Emperor Nero accidentally knocked over a fateful candle whilst wooing a lady with fiddle music. Dine by candlelight without a burning-city backdrop with today's Groupon: for $22, you get $50 worth of fine Tuscan dining and drinks at the recently re-launched House of Savoy, plus $10 for drinks at their Cascade Bar. The House of Savoy is located inside HoteLumière on North Second Street.
Like the restaurant's brand-new menu, House of Savoy's Chef Paola Bugli is a relocated native of Florence—Tuscany's regional capital and leader in savory dining. Begin your repast with antipasto toscano—assorted cured Tuscan meats and cheeses with roasted peppers and marinated olives ($15)—before opening the gates to your gut with a savory secondi of pasta such as the lasagna matta (baked crazy-lasagna with bolognese meat-sauce and béchamel, topped with parmesan and mozzarella, $15). A grill entree such as the 12-ounce prime-choice, dry-aged beef tenderloin fillet ($32) and a side of Tuscan cannellini beans ($5) connects meaty Midwest traditions with Tuscan artistry, much like an oil painting depicting a naked Mike Ditka atop a clam-shell, while a salsiccia pizza flattens appetites with tomato sauce, spicy sausage, sweet red-peppers, caramelized onions, and mozzarella ($10). For dessert, head to the Cascade Bar and finish the feast with $10 worth of post-prandial potion.
House of Savoy's comfortable ambiance mingles a modern dining atmosphere with touches of Old World elegance. Free valet parking, meanwhile, spares diners the hassle of plowing their car through the front of the restaurant and parking tableside. Invite a special someone out for an evening of culinary canoodling at House of Savoy, or surprise them by getting down on one knee and proposing to the waiter.
You must be 21 or older to enter. House of Savoy is open after 5 p.m.
