What You'll Get

Eating Italian fare is one of the best ways to cross-train your tongue for the lasso competition in the Facelympics. Pasta-cise to gold medaldom with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of Northern Italian cuisine at Il Poeta, a family-owned eatery in Forest Hills.

Unearth the traditional delights of Northern Italy with Il Poeta's menu, and commence face-hole caulking with the carciofi in tegamino, baked artichokes served with shrimp and smoked scamorza cheese ($12.50), before bringing on the workhorse of Northern fare— tagliatelle alla Bolognese, homemade pasta with beef-ragout sauce hearty enough to sate the most vicious pangs of hunger ($17). A wide variety of salads greet the green-eater such as del poeta, with romaine, olives, mozzarella, tomato, and balsamic dressing ($10). Meat lovers can sate a craving with pollo spezzatino con capperi in salsa di pomodoro e origano (diced boneless chicken with capers, tomato, and oregano) for $19.50 or tagliata di manzo con palate al rosmarino (grilled and sliced sirloin steak with roasted potatoes and rosemary) for $28.50. Il Poeta's thoughtfully constructed wine list provides a pairing for every meal, so don't be too shy to ask a server about the current varieties.

Without restaurants, people would have no place to have romantic, business, or accidental dinners, which would wreak havoc on the financial-marriage sector and lead to a mass commitment to panic. Safeguard the country and your loved stomachs with today's Groupon to Il Poeta.

  • The dishes were solid, yet imaginitive [sic] and easily avoided the tired hot and cold antipasto formulas and combinations of many Italian or Italian American places, without sacrificing taste. – The Gotham Palate
  • The food and wine were excellent. The service and attention to detail for a large party was superb. – John Byrne, Urbanspoon
