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 $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and Italian fare for lunch or dinner at Italia Cafe in Denton.
The chefs at Italia Cafe make everything on the menu from scratch, including family recipes for Neapolitan-style or deep-dish pizza, pasta, and hot subs. A large Neapolitan cheese pizza ($9.95) sates hearty appetites, and the 16"x16" deep-dish Sicilian Special ($17.95) piles a mountain of meats and veggies onto a square pizza peg that fits comfortably into round pie holes. Diners can open pearly mouth gates for a bite of angel hair pomodoro ($7.95) or look down their noses at the chicken Aristocrat, a chicken breast sautéed with eggplant and mozzarella in a white-wine cream sauce and served with a side of spaghetti ($9.95). Hot philly cheese steak ($7.95) or meatball sub ($5.95) sandwiches keep hands warm, and sweet cannoli ($3.95) ends meal sentences with a decadent exclamation point. The cafe's sleek wood and tile floors rest under plush red and black booths, and Italian-inspired artwork inspires patrons to row invisible gondolas.
