Hungry Roman historians jumbled earlier versions of the myth of Sisyphus––condemned to roll a meatball uphill forever––and Tantalus––forever reaching for the fruit of a lasagna tree just out of his grasp. Indulge in the Italian delicacies of myth-makers' fantasies with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at Monte Carlo Italian Kitchen in Westerville.
Infused with the authentic Italian flavor of traditional family recipes, Monte Carlo's savory dishes have graced greedy plate surfaces with heaping portions for more than 30 years. From Monte Carlo's kitchen flows a river of homemade sauces, dotted with bell-pepper rapids and lasagna kayaks. A new, pasta-packed menu sets taste-bud forests aflame with heated additions such as the spicy sausage signature pizza ($6.99 for 8") and shrimp scampi ($11.99). Old-guard palates can salute their classic taste proclivities with timeworn favorites, such as eggplant parmigiana ($7.99), and a vast array of subs, salads, desserts, and more satisfies any remaining gastronomic desires.
Monte Carlo Italian Kitchen was reviewed by Columbus Alive and is recommended by Metromix. It has a four-star average from four Yelpers and four Citysearchers. It has an average of four owl eyes from four TripAdvisors:
- The house-made sausage ($1.49 a la carte), for example, is still going strong. What it is: spicy with black pepper, lean, firm and satisfying. What it isn't: like anyone else's. – Jon Christensen, Columbus Alive
- The folks at Monte Carlo Italian Kitchen aim to carry on the traditions passed on to them by their parents. After a quick glance at the menu, those parents would be proud. – Metromix
