Before ancient Italians took it under their wing, fresh mozzarella ran rampant around the countryside, wedging itself between carefully stacked lasagna noodles and aggressively chatting up angel-haired pasta. Enjoy mozzarella's refined side with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Italian Cafe in Spring.
Italian Cafe transports taste buds to the land of mozzarella and tomatoes with classic Italian dishes, piping hot pizzas, and a chalkboard menu of rotating weekly specials. Wade tentative palates into the bruschetta dip ($6.99) or the fried mozzarella ($5.99) before diving mouth-first into the main event. Pasta lovers can tuck into the cannelloni tasty crêpe-like envelopes stuffed with beef and sealed in a creamy tomato sauce ($9.99). The chicken Leonardo arrives painted in herbed cream sauce on a shard of The Last Supper ($14.99). The pizza list teems with expressions of meaty devotion, such as the meat Amore topped with five variations on the titular protein ($11.99–$17.99), as well as meatless possibilities that range from the garden-begotten veggie Amore ($10.99–$16.99) to the traditional margarita pie ($10.99–$16.99).
Bathed in primary-colored paint, Italian Cafe plants its red table-clothed tables on black and white checkered floors ideal for a game of chess played with fellow diners as pawns and spare utensils as rooks. On Thursday evenings, the Italian eatery treats patrons' ears to live music.
