Mio Vicino - Santa Clara: $15 for $30 Worth of Italian Cuisine and Drinks at Mio Vicino in Santa Clara

The best way to capture a wild, rampaging meal is to hook it with a gigantic pasta lasso. Test your throwin' arm with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Mio Vicino in Santa Clara.

For almost 20 years, Mio Vicino has whipped up traditional and locally inspired Italian dishes made from fresh, local ingredients. Like street graffiti on the Pantheon, the menu pairs classic plates with modern culinary approaches; Italian mainstays such as the chicken cannelloni, a chicken-stuffed pasta dish with fresh mushrooms and spinach ($15.75), rub elbows with newfangled, California-inspired offerings such as the Pizza of Fire, a spicy disk topped with linguica, jalapeño peppers, and garlic ($10.50). Guests can frontload their feast with a variety of appetizers, such as bruschetta ($7.50) and sautéed mussels swimming in wine, garlic, and butter sauce ($10.50), or lunch on meatball or sausage sandwiches ($7.75).

Complement comestibles with a glass of Big House Red Bonny Doon wine ($5.99) or a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale ($4.95) depending on your proclivity for purple lips or frothy mustaches. With neighborhood faces working in the kitchen or indulging at a nearby table, Mio Vicino gives off a lively, neighborhood-oriented vibe that leaves patrons feeling like they've just dined with a long-lost friend while wearing a long-lost marinara-flavored retainer.

Mio Vicino

Two decades after Mio Vicino cooked up its first plate of clam-dappled linguine, many of its original chefs still remain steadfast in the kitchen, mincing garlic, sculpting meatballs, and ribboning strands of housemade pasta. These culinary wizards have since refined their California-inspired italian pasta and pizza, earning recognition from CBS San Francisco for being a top South Bay pizza venue. Their kitchen abounds with energy and savory aromas as pans simmer with creamy sauces and ovens glow with artisanal meat and seafood.

In the dining room, surrounded by sun-yellow walls and exposed brick, parties dip crispy italian bread into pools of oil and freshly roasted garlic resting upon green-checkered tabletops. Light pours in through lofty windows and glimmers off glasses of fine wine and bottles of beer. The restaurant's private banquet room, meanwhile, boasts elegant chandeliers and a flat-screen television, making it an ideal venue for corporate lunches or exclusive screenings of the first 10 seasons of Dallas.
