What You'll Get
A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savor pasta's forced flexibility with today's Groupon to Milano Ristorante Italiano. Choose between the following locations: Wurzbach Road or Alamo Heights. Choose between the following options:
• For $36, you get a three-course prix fixe dinner for two (up to a $77.96 value). Any entree can be selected, but if the value is more than $30, the difference will be added to the check. Click here for an overview of the courses.
• For $10, you get $20 worth of Italian lunch fare served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Milano Ristorante Italiano's experienced chefs craft traditional and succulent Italian dishes in elegant locales. Both the Wurzbach menu and the Alamo Heights menu tickle the taste buds of pre fixe dining duos with appetizers such as mussels in white wine or marinara (a $11.99 value). Entrees conduct a savory symphony, as seen with the chicken napolitano, which plucks delicious notes with grilled chicken, sun-dried tomato, and a side of risotto (a $13.99–$14.99 value), or the linguine di mar's ode to calamari, shrimp, and clams in a sea of pasta (a $20.99–$21.99 value). More than 10 seafood dishes find homes on table-marooned plates, such as the eggplant romaine, which basks sautéed shrimp and scallops in rich saffron cream sauce and ego-boosting compliments (a $19.99 value). Alamo Heights diners can end night on a sweet note with desserts such as the velvety tiramisu (a $5.99 value), and Wurzbach patrons can pause from chatting up napkins to choose from a rotating selection of sweet-tooth satisfiers.
During lunch, diners can choose from an array of satiating meals accompanied by bread and a salad. The chefs create the signature dish, shrimp milano, by sautéing shrimp in a lemon butter sauce ($11.99), and the traditional chicken parmesan forges sliceable bonds between lightly breaded chicken and mozzarella ($8.99). Buddy up to cheese- or meat-filled ravioli ($8.99), or elect a rowdy roster of pastas ($7.99+) to refuel pasta-powered jetpacks.

About Milano Ristorante Italiano
Nimbly darting through the forest of white-clothed tables in the Milano Ristorante Italiano dining rooms, attentive waiters carry platters of traditional Italian dishes and bottles of fine wines. In the kitchen, seasoned chefs labor over sizzling stoves, folding seafood, meats, and fresh vegetables into northern- and southern-Italian classics. Diners can sample baked pastas, veal dishes, and gourmet pizzas, such as the Milano, layered with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and peppers. Meanwhile, seasoned bartenders mix martinis, margaritas, and specialty cocktails as skillfully as a vindictive construction worker mixes concrete into his boss’s convertible.
Vibrant oil paintings speckle the restaurant's textured walls, adding to the rustic decor and looking down on tables hosting family outings and romantic first dates. Outside on the expansive patio, a brick fireplace illuminates tables of alfresco diners and the cascading water of the ornamental fountain.
