What You'll Get
Before the proliferation of cultural cuisine, internationally minded diners were forced to wrap their entrées in bitter, chewy atlas pages. Expand your palate’s horizons with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get an Italian dinner for two at Locanda Veneta on West Third Street (up to a $95.85 value). Dinner includes the following:
- One appetizer (up to a $17.95 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $38.95 value each)
Locanda Veneta whisks couples off to the shores of Italy with a menu of house-cooked pastas and desserts prepared in faithful Old Country style and served in a Venetian-inspired setting. Manila clams drizzled with a garlic-tomato or white-wine broth whet appetites alongside the burrata caprese’s tasty trifecta of mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. Modeled after the Roman Colosseum’s ancient groundwork, the house-made lasagna alternates layers of lean meat and fluffy ricotta for a hearty and structurally sound meal. Fettuccine meanders around strips of filet mignon and wild mushrooms in the pappardelle al filetto e funghetti, and the chef prepares the osso buco con risotto zafferano by slowly baking a 16-ounce veal shank and tucking it into a bed of saffron risotto.
Candles cast a gentle glow on couples seated at tabletops adorned with white linen and decorated plating. A peek into the restaurant’s open kitchen reveals chefs crafting Italian delicacies and building strong forearms through rigorous peppermill churning.
