Ninety percent of alleged UFO sightings can be easily explained as falling meteors, swamp-gas reflections, or doughy orbs hurled into orbit by Herculean pizza makers. Enjoy earthbound eats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Mangieri’s Pizza Café. This Groupon is valid at the Circle C and Lakeway locations.
Mangieri’s dedication to authentic, handmade Italian recipes and friendly, personal service has made it a favorite for locals who are choosy about what they chew. Delights differ slightly between the Circle C menu and the Lakeway menu, but both pack the same belly-warming bevy of melty bliss. The true prize of Mangieri’s lies in its thin-crust pizza pies, which are hand-tossed, sauced with vine-ripened tomatoes, and adorned in non-frozen 100% whole-milk mozzarella. Paesanos can choose to build their own cheese conduits from more than 40 traditional and gourmet meat and veggie toppings, or indulge in Mangieri’s portfolio of 19 gourmet specialty pizzas. A Mary Ann’s pizza tops the cheesy tundra in grilled chicken breast, bacon, fresh spinach, and alfredo sauce ($12.99 for 12”), and a hot pig pizza sprinkles sausage, garlic, oils, and spicy giardiniera relish across the crunchy, crusty canvas ($17.99 for 16”). The vegetable bistro packs a wallop of vitamins—raiding the green giant’s house and throwing in his entire kitchen-sink of mushrooms, peppers, and greens ($15.99 for 14”). Crusts are available in whole wheat for the fiber fanatical or gluten free for the wheat allergic. Or, start with an appetizer of Mangieri’s beloved baked buffalo wings, which are available in honey barbecue, mild, or tongue-spite ($8.49). Hot subs and sandwiches, such as the Baked Italian ($6.99), stuff hillocks of steamy meats and veggies in their bread trunks, and layered lasagna envelopes spinach, ground beef, ricotta and mozzarella in a multi-tiered trip to the stomach’s sweet spot ($8.99).
In the warm neighborhood atmosphere of the homey Circle C and chic, contemporary Lakeway location, diners can spelunk into a treasure trove of hot, scrumptious concoctions, all handcrafted and homespun. After a hearty meal, patrons will leave feeling satisfied and energized enough to take on tedious tasks, such as informing a conjoined twin that he should move out.
