What You'll Get
Eating light and airy focaccia is like covering your stomach with a patchwork comforter stitched from clouds, bunny tails, and mashed potatoes. Indulge in the Italian delight with today's Groupon. For $20, you get $40 worth of speedy, affordable, boot-shaped-country cuisine at La Focaccia. Not quite pizza, not just bread, the deliciously ambiguous eat reigns supreme at this open-every-day eatery, along with a smart selection of paninis and pastas.
Take your pals out for a light and filling lunch or catch up with a friend over dinner in the handsome, casual bistro. La Focaccia's menus offer appetite-whetting carbohydrates such as warm bruschetta ($9.95) or a plate of fresh, fluffy mozzarella and vine-ripened tomatoes studded with basil and extra-virgin olive oil ($8.95). La Focaccia offers a stunning selection of greenery for lunch, such as a Caesar dressed in creamy parmesan ($9.95), or a customizable ruffage bowl with a choice of mixed greens, arugula, spinach, or romaine and premium ingredients like artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomato, and pine nuts ($8.95). Paninis including the veggie-full vegetali ($9.95) and savory chicken pesto ($10.50) can all be served on a whole-wheat flat-bread substitute and are paired with mixed-green side salad. Extensive pasta and pizza offerings round out the menu. Try a pesto pizza with grilled chicken, kalamata olives, and mozzarella ($12.95), or indulge on sweet sage- and browned-butter-infused ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta ($9.95 for lunch, $10.95 for dinner).
The romantic ambience wafting through traditional Italian restaurants can sometimes become more potent to singles than successive garlic-soaked sunrises to a vampire. La Focaccia is casual without lacking refinement, with rich wooden tables welcoming singles, pairs, and red-hat ladies' nights out. Late hours (until 8:45 p.m. seven days a week) acknowledge carb cravings without the risk of waking up to telltale breadcrumb trails streaming from the kitchen after an unfortunate binge.
This Groupon is good for dine-in only.
- ...warm, cut into broad strips and served with a saucer of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. The thick bread had the characteristic spongy crumb and brittle (but not crunchy) crust, and it soaked up the oil and vinegar efficiently...I keep thinking about that focaccia. Making it is clearly a particular talent, and it's one that [chef and owner Giacomo] Zarcone clearly possesses. We no longer will overlook La Focaccia or its focaccia, and we recommend that you don't, either.
- It lends itself to the charm of the dinner experience. The menu selection was very impressive...As to the food... It was amazing! The quality and freshness of the meal far surpassed much larger and expensive locations. – Mick Ferrara, Urbanspoon
- So freaking good...and their proscuitto [sic], arugula, and parmesan pizza. Off the chain!...the owner is a really great cook and it's nice to have a good priced delicious italian [sic] restaurant in the neighborhood. – Steve T., Yelp
