Pizza is traditionally circular, as its original octagonal shape caused patrons to simply stare at it and wait for the diner on their right to move. Pave your throat’s thoroughfare with cheese with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pizza and Serbian cuisine at Intermezzo Pizzeria and Cafe.
The Avramovic brothers drew inspiration from their grandmother's family recipes in creating Intermezzo Pizzeria and Cafe's menu, which is packed with hand-tossed pizzas featuring handmade dough and mozzarella alongside traditional Serbian dishes. Tomatoes, fresh-made mozzarella, basil, and olive oil combine forces on the margherita pizza (10", $11.95; 16",$17.50), which serves well as an interactive pie chart for lunchtime business meetings. Meat lovers can ask for the Intermezzo Supreme pizza, upon which chefs pack italian sausage, pepperoni, and assorted veggies onto a doughy frisbee (10", $12.50; 16", $19.50). Peppers stuffed with ground beef ($11.95) and chicken fricassee with a white wine lemon butter sauce ($12.95) are two of many authentic Serbian entrees readily available to muffle growling bellies or turn an empty pillowcase into a giant pot sticker.
Intermezzo Pizzeria and Cafe's dining room is encased by exposed-brick walls decorated with local artists' wares, each of which are available for purchase. Patrons can also enjoy their meals on the outdoor patio, where the glimmering Charlotte skyline can illuminate their plates or create shadows that conceal regrettable face tattoos.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Intermezzo Pizzeria and Cafe a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
Intermezzo Pizzeria and Cafe
At Intermezzo Pizzeria and Cafe, brothers Branko and Djordje Avramovic draw patrons to their European–style eatery with fresh, hand-tossed pizzas and Serbian family recipes passed down from their grandmother. Their kitchen contains no freezer or microwave, ensuring the staff cooks all meats and melts all toy army soldiers by hand. In keeping with this commitment to freshness, they also grow their own herbs and create their own mozzarella, bread, and pastas from scratch. These top-notch ingredients assemble in dishes such as Balkan-style pizzas stuffed with ham and sour cream and eggplant musaka, which guests can devour on an outdoor patio overlooking Charlotte's skyline.
