What You'll Get
Prior to aviation, creating an authentic Italian meal in America required authentic Italian chefs to traverse the Atlantic in a boat with sails made of lasagna noodles, an anchor of bruschetta, and a deck handcarved out of ricotta. Sample authentic Neapolitan fares that never bathed in the ocean with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get an Italian meal for two (up to a $68 total value) at either of La Bottega Marino’s Los Angeles locations. The meal includes the following:
- One appetizer (up to a $12 value).
- One salad (up to a $16 value).
- Two pastas (up to an $17 value each).
- One dessert (up to a $6 value).<p>
Brothers Mario and Sal Marino keep Neapolitan-style cuisine artfully alive at La Bottega Marino by offering a menu rife with authentic dishes made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Dining duos can kick off their meal by shooting a starting pistol at the ceiling, cueing one of the restaurant’s attentive servers to rush over spuntini such as polpette al sugo, a pair of meatballs served with ragu. The meal’s prelude also features a choice of salad, including the insalata di carciofi, which slaps tongues to attention with freshly shaved artichoke, arugula, and parmigiano. The entree course boasts luscious house-made pasta dishes, including the linguine gamberi diavolo, a deeply aromatic platter of thin, flat noodles laced with shrimp and dressed in a spicy tomato sauce. Alternatively, guests can scintillate their palates at dinner with the diverse parade of mushrooms found in the risotto ai funghi. Feasting muscles wind down with a tender dessert selection, including classic italian tiramisu, Neapolitan-style ricotta cheesecake, or their flavor-catching napkins.
