Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it’s submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle with today's Groupon: for $10 you get $20 worth of authentic Italian fare at Luciano Neighborhood Pizzeria's Stone Ridge location.
Luciano Neighborhood Pizzeria's expert chefs combine fresh ingredients and classic Neapolitan family recipes to create a menu of authentic Italian cuisine served in a cozy, casual environment. Patrons order their eats at the convenient walk-through-style counter, at which they can survey the lineup of fresh salads ($2.95–$6.95), paninis ($5.95–$6.95), and strombolis ($6.95) anxiously waiting behind glass cases to be consumed or selected for a still-life painting. Pizzas, freshly baked in a brick oven, please palettes; the personal-sized Neapolitan pizza Margherita, given the Vera Pizza Napoletana Award by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, hosts a gathering of imported San Amarzano plum tomatoes, mozzarella, and olive oil ($9.95). Luciano's specialty dishes, prepared from scratch, include the Lasagna Famosa with layers of pasta, ground beef, and béchamel sauce slathered in marinara and mingling with melted mozzarella cheese ($7.95).
Guests can dine on the spacious outdoor patio, or inside, where Luciano's adorns its eatery with rustic bric-a-brac, worn wooden floors, and red-checkered tablecloths, making it perfect for casual dates, family nights out, or impromptu checkers tournaments.
Luciano Neighborhood Pizzeria
In a small town outside of Naples, Italy, Nonna Lina lured passersby into her trattoria with the aroma of fresh tomato sauce and wood-oven-baked pizzas. Stateside, her sons uphold their mother’s culinary legacy, preparing her recipes from scratch with imported Italian ingredients. In addition to the authentic cuisine, the dining room itself hearkens back to an Italian eatery: guests order from chalkboard menus propped atop wooden barrels, and red-and-white-checkered tablecloths invite diners to play endless games of chess with condiments.
