Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $13, you get $30 worth of authentic Italian cuisine and drinks at Mama Campisi's on The Hill. CityVoters named Mama Campisi's Best Italian in 2010.
Mama Campisi's serves up enticing Italian eats for lunch and dinner, with a menu of enough authentic entrees and big bowls of noodles to fuel a triathlon, as well as the grueling and now-illegal sesquicentathlon. Before you attempt to ascend the "Hill" of Spaghetti ($9.75), though, hire some Sherpas and work your way up to it with an order of toasted ravioli ($7.25) or crab-stuffed mushrooms ($7.95) sprinkled with asiago cheese. The abundant entree selection serves up classic Italian favorites in a variety of meaty or seafoody varietals, such as the tender veal picatta ($16.95)—which lets you savor the sautéed slices in a lemon-butter-caper wine sauce—or grilled salmon drizzled with Mama's own Chianti-balsamic glaze ($17.25). Otherwise, commit to a torrid, short-term summer fling with Mama Campisi's signature dish: pollo spedini ($15.75), a breaded boneless chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto, provel, and veggies. Pizza pies ($8.95 and up) offer ease of dining for large groups, small children, and post-pubescent reptiles skilled in the martial arts.
Mama Campisi's boasts a casual atmosphere where warm, friendly service mingles with the intoxicating aroma of red sauce wafting through the dining room. The eatery's décor manages to be understated yet elegant, like Cary Grant in flip-flops. Two Groupons can be combined for tables of four or more, so invite a triumvirate of ancient Roman roommates to Mama Campisi's and help them decide how to divide the apartment in a way that inevitably leads to civil war.
This Groupon cannot be used on Saturdays or holidays.
