A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savour pasta's forced flexibility with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Italian cuisine Friday–Monday or $60 worth if redeemed Tuesday–Thursday at Marinella.
Marinella's Italian-cuisine experts blend together fresh ingredients, local beef, and daily imported fish to cook up a menu of classic Italian entrees. Tomato sauce drips over homemade sausages and meatballs in small ($17) and large ($22) orders of Pappardelle Giovanni pasta made with fresh eggs and 100% durum semolina flour, and diners wrap their mouths and pocket measuring tapes around the circumference of a thin-crust margherita pizza topped with imported extra-virgin olive oil ($15). In the kitchen, chefs prepare locally sourced, prime-grade new york strip-loin steak aged for 28 days ($32) and blend together fresh scallops, shrimp, king crab, and a lobster into a seafood risotto ($32). Meanwhile, candlelight flickers across brick walls as bartenders pour selections from an extensive wine list, and sunlight spills over a patio where diners can practice plate juggling after finishing off one of the eatery's daily selection of in-house-made desserts. Customers may also substitute organic spelt noodles in pasta dishes.
