Italy has given us legendary works of art, from the evocative paintings of Caravaggio and da Vinci to the miniature meat sculptures of Boyardee. Admire edible Italian masterpieces with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and casual Italian fare at Mazzio's Italian Eatery. This Groupon is valid at the locations in Brandon on Albertson Drive and Service Drive, Byram, Clinton, Jackson, Madison, Richland, and Ridgeland.
The dough artisans at Mazzio's uphold classic Italian traditions with a lunch and dinner menu of specialty pizzas and made-to-order eats. Diners pick from 21 toppings to coat small ($6+), medium ($12+), and large ($14+) traditional pizzas, each sliced up and ready to slip into birthday cards in either original, deep-pan, or thin crust. Chefs sprinkle four cheeses on a specialty chicken club pizza ($7–$16) and slather spicy sauce onto Ken's Thin & Crispy ($10.50–$13.50), a 50-year-old recipe described in the Oklahoman as being reminiscent "of the pizza parlors of the 1960s and '70s."
A turkey and swiss hoagie warms palates with its multigrain roll ($6.50), and meaty lasagna sends forks on a mission to excavate layers of ricotta, romano, and mozzarella ($7.75). Mazzio's culinary crew regularly breaks from its daily routine of tickling tomatoes until they cry out sauce to help community organizations such as United Way. Alternatively, today's Groupon may be used for Mazzio's lunch or dinner buffet available daily, including pizza, pasta, salad, and desserts, with custom pizzas made upon request.
Mazzio's Italian Eatery
Mazzio's Italian Eatery's staff rolls out a buffet for lunch and dinner populated with tasty Italian cuisine that they also serve à la carte. The restaurant's staff has been perfecting its culinary modus operandi for more than 50 years, long enough to evolve the pizza selection to include three levels of thickness. Chefs bake standard, deep-dish, and thin crusts—available in gluten-free form—and load each with toppings such as caramelized onions and giant pepperoni. The kitchen makes pasta plates to order, some baked in the oven, such as lasagna, and some tossed in sauce, such as the mainstay spaghetti and meatballs. The signature calzone radiates the ambrosial scent of pizza dough stuffed with meat and cheese, and it's meant to be shared, unlike a pogo stick.
