Italian cuisine is often served “family style”—off a platter rotating 50 feet above the diners’ heads, which they can only reach through wits and teamwork. Bond over a meal with this Groupon.

It's not a coincidence if you're reminded of Capri while dining at Marcony Ristorante. According to CBS New York, the "intimate neighborhood spot" is run by Capri native Marco Pipolo and his wife Claudia. The culinary offerings echo those you might find on Pipolo's home island, including handmade pastas and fresh seafood such as bay scallops and wild-caught salmon or squid. The convivial atmosphere and blue-and-white decor also add to the maritime Mediterranean feel. Resembling a cross between a chandelier and an exploding firework, a white, cobalt, and teal glass sculpture hangs over the multilevel dining room. The walls are lined with bottles from the restaurant's extensive wine collection, and dark-wood and chrome accents add to the space's sophisticated vibe and need for furniture polish.
These visual and gustatory elements combine to create an elegant backdrop for date nights; a decadent prix fixe menu featured on February 14, 2012, even earned the restaurant a spot on Zagat's list of 15 Valentine's Day Reservations to Make Right Now.
