A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw eggs and meat punching bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American and Italian fare at Monica's in Coralville.

Monica's dichotomous menu splits evenly between homestyle American meals and Italian-inspired entrees. Scalloped potatoes and ham bakes Iowa pork and creamy, cheesy spuds to a golden brown ($10.45), a tastier nostalgic nosh than snacking on Legos. Brick-oven-baked ziti, the restaurant's most popular dish, invites chicken, shrimp, and prosciutto to party in a lobster-cream sauce ($16.95), and the grilled, free-range chicken balsamico goes stag, nattily dressed in honey-balsamic glaze and portobello mushrooms ($16.95). Cravings originating from either side of the Atlantic can compromise with the gourmet pizza menu, whose nine specialty selections bake in a traditional Italian open-flame brick oven ($8.45+) but are named after former Iowa basketball players such as Jeff Horner and Greg Brunner, or choose from a plethora of tasty sandwiches, homemade soups, and specialty salads.

As a reflection of the menu, Monica's casual dining quarters come in two separate halves. In the front dining room, sleek wood furniture nestles into earth-toned carpeting that softens the steps of diners trying to tiptoe past the tempting whispers of decadent desserts ($2.95–$5.95). Beyond a windowed wall, sports fans huddle up in oversize wooden booths and direct their attention to eight big screen HD televisions.

Great service and very good food!

The food is delicious. We had a burger, which tasted like ground steak it was so good, and Fettucini Alfredo.
