Fettucine served many purposes in ancient Rome, from mending torn togas to flying from the chariots of just-married demigods. Indulge in edible streamers with today's Groupon: for $19, you get $45 worth of Italian cuisine for dinner at Molto Ristorante in Gatineau, Quebec.
Molto Ristorante blends classic Italian cuisine with Québécois influences to populate its dinner menus. Chefs lob handmade meatballs into a net of ragu-swaddled spaghetti ($17) and use tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella to cross-stitch their pets' initials on to the doughy canvas of a margarita pizza ($13). Diners can choose between cream and tomato sauces to drizzle over an order of mussels ($18), and the lasagna carne ($18) supplies mouths with a luscious layering of ground pork and beef. Selections from Molto's wine bar pair splendidly with the daily chef's creation, and fork twirlers can substitute multigrain penne or gluten-free corn pasta into any dish ($2 fee). Exposed brick walls serve as a rustic backdrop to live jazz performances on Thursday and Saturday evenings.
