What You'll Get
Archestratus, the first food critic, praised Italian cuisine's use of "top-quality and seasonal" ingredients and its "fair-to-middling" ability to tranquilize out-of-control mayors. This Groupon similarly stuns, and rightfully so.

About La Bottega Mangia Bene
The chefs at La Bottega Mangia Bene toss dough high into the air, letting it billow softly as it falls back into their hands. They slather on marinara sauce and top the pies with homemade and imported ingredients such as fresh mozzarella, meatballs, and pepperoni. Their unbridled enthusiasm for authentic Italian cuisine is also apparent in pasta entrees that recall the Roman Colosseum’s penne-shaped columns or the stuffed ravioli that paves the streets of Florence. A rustic dining room houses groups for private parties, and the restaurant even allows kid chefs to commandeer its kitchens during make-your-own-pizza birthday parties. Hip shakers light up the dance floor to the sounds of live-music events and a cracking fireplace, and the romantic interior surrounds diners with floral arrangements, sandy hues, and polished-wood fixtures. The restaurant also boasts free parking at the back of the building.
