The spaghetti-western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of classic Italian cuisine and drinks at Lescotti's Ameritalian Dining in Farragut.
This new family eatery features an extensive menu of timeless Italian tastes, including pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and salads. A thin-crusted pie topped with pepperoni turns circumscribed circles into a square meal ($9.50 for a 12-inch). Unlike parents or pants, pasta and sauce combinations can be hand-selected and mix-and-matched; try a large dish of penne with meat sauce, served with garlic bread ($7.39). Or, put the fear of The Don into an unruly, growling stomach—a deli trifecta of ham, salami, and pepperoni, crowned with mozzarella, portabello mushrooms, peppers, and Italian dressing, sandwiched between house-made bread ($7.99 for a 12-inch). Lescotti's friendly service and casual atmosphere make it the perfect place for an evening family outing or outing the neighbor family for mistreating your cat topiary.
