Though among the finest in the world, Italian cuisine is all too often overshadowed by three of the nation's other big exports: handbags, nonferrous metals, and German chocolate. Today's Groupon exalts meal-worthy excellence: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Il Posto Cafe in Uptown.

Cozy neighborhood vibes permeate the air at Il Posto Cafe, inviting diners to munch on fresh-baked goods during breakfast or fine Italian sandwiches, soups, salads, and cheeses during lunch or dinner hours. Standouts such as the antipasti platter—a plate of seasonal roasted vegetables, cheeses, meats, olives, and accompaniments ($15)—highlight the inventive menu. Made with fontina and available with gorgonzola, honey, and walnuts, even the American-favorite grilled cheese ($8) gets an Italian makeover, like a bald eagle playing an accordion. Il Posto also serves wine, beer, and hot and cold beverages, sells premium coffee by the pound, and flaunts a rotating menu of fresh-baked muffins, scones, danishes, cornbread, and toast.

Il Posto Cafe

"Owner Madison Curry's warm, smiling presence is underscored by baked goods that all but dare not to be ordered." This quote from a NOLA.com article hints at Il Posto's charm. But it only encapsulates a fraction of what makes the cafe so interesting. Italian cuisine forms the backbone of the menu, which features paninis such as the Bologna with mortadella, roasted red peppers, and balsamic dressing, as well as fontina grilled cheeses with inventive add-ins such as tuna, honey, and walnuts. Antipasti spreads can be built from a choice of meats or cheeses. In the mornings, on the other hand, the restaurant brews and serves its own house-blend coffee. Their java complements bagels, organic granola, and a rotating selection of pastries that can't stay long, as they have to get back to starring in peoples' dreams.
