Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Italian cuisine at Michelina's Ristorante Costa Campagnia.
Italian-born owner Michelina DiSibio infuses Michelina's Ristorante Costa Campagnia's menu of classic Italian dishes with homemade charm gleaned from cooking lessons learned in her mother's kitchen. House-grown vegetables sidle up next to herbs plucked from the restaurant’s garden, which lend antipasti such as mushrooms ($9.95) stuffed with savory veal and mild italian sausage an air of homestyle familiarity like taking a bubble bath with a long-lost friend. Lasagna ($17.95) arrives stacked high with strata of veal and cheeses, and linguine con vongole ($19.95) surreptitiously entwines its clam-sauce-soaked tendrils around fork tines. Sample the flavors of the Italian coast with seafood dishes such as shrimp and scallops ($27.95) or nosh on homemade sausage and peppers ($18.95), which beats back hunger pangs with a dynamic trio of chicken breast, stuffed pasta shells, and a killer left hook. Touches of Gesualdo—DiSibio's Italian birthplace—accent the incandescently lit dining room lined with paintings on the walls and fresh flowers set at every table.
