Welcome to Groupon, Calgary! For our inaugural deal, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks for $12 at Involtini Ristorante, located at 2515 90 Avenue SW in Oak Bay Plaza. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Calgary: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theatre, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (25 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupon or redeem it with one of our mobile apps. Use it whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in six months. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $30 worth of savoury stuffed meats, wine, and more at Involtini Ristorante. Dinner is served daily from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and lunch is served Wednesday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Involtini Ristorante inspires the culinary-minded of Calgary with its menu of classic Italian favourites. A large order of calamari ($13) or a bowl of the crab and prawn bisque ($8) allows you to get the submerged sustenance you missed out on during your years spent as an oasis lifeguard in the Sahara. Main courses run the gastronomic gamut from pastas and risottos to pizzas and chicken dishes. Weave a tapestry of meatballs and meat sauce with a large order of linguine Bolognese ($17) while your dining date digestively dissects a 10-inch chicken-mushroom-alfredo thin-crust pizza ($15). For namesake nourishment, Involtini Ristorante also serves four variations of involtini ($23 each), a dish with a variety of ingredients stuffed into flattened meat or fish and then sautéed and topped with rich sauce. Involtini incarnations come in chicken, beef tenderloin, veal, or salmon. Bid farewell to the boot-shaped bounty of bites with tiramisu ($8) or an espresso ($3.50), or simply save stomach storage space for a glass of wine (starting at $7 per glass).
The dining room at Involtini exudes the rustic glow and warmth of a mountain man's cardigan sweater, ensuring that patrons can enjoy Italian-inspired eats in a comfortable and cozy setting. On Monday nights, the restaurant invites its guests to bring their own wine, with no corkage fee applying. Bottle up your bathtub merlot for workweek-starting wonderment, or allow the skilled staff of Involtini Ristorante to pair your pabulum with a luscious label. Reservations are strongly recommended.
