The spaghetti western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of traditional Italian pastas, specialty entrees, and drinks at Mike & Charlie’s Italian Restaurant, located in Harrah’s North Kansas City Hotel and Casino.
Helmed by Michael Garozzo of Garozzo’s Ristorante and Charlie Gitto of Charlie Gitto’s, Mike & Charlie’s Italian Restaurant serves up tried-and-true Italian delicacies in an upscale environment that earned it an OpenTable Diner's Choice award in 2010. Find a cozy spot within the elegant eatery's rustic brick walls and relax as warm, dim lighting dances over the dinner menu of piquant pastas and succulent seafoods. Traditional Italian favorites such as six-layer lasagna ($15.95) and veal marsala ($23.95) delight even the most discerning and traditional of top-hat-wearing taste buds. Practice division and sharing skills with a classic margherita pizza ($11.95), or hone in on hoarding with the eatery’s signature chicken spiedini ($16.95+), which serves up charbroiled marinated chicken and a variety of rich sauces that are imported straight from Venice’s charming tomato-sauce canals.
