Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Moscatiello’s in Troy.
Moscatiello’s kitchen craftsmen fill bellies with a plethora of authentic italian breads, sauces, and sausages made fresh daily. At the dinner menu's dramatic climax, alfredo-drenched chicken-tender warriors astride a wild tangle of fettuccine face down hungry stomachs four times their size armed only with a few shreds of romano cheese ($17.99). Pasta whisperers can also cloak portobello mushrooms in ravioli slickers before drizzling them in a creamy red sauce ($15.99), or hide fugitive roast salmon in a verdant salad forest of fresh greens and asparagus ($13.99). Pair any meal with a subtly flavored selection from the wine list or a squeal of complaint from the whine list.
In Moscatiello's tan and ochre dining room, dishes recline atop wood tables, and the wait staff don aprons hand-sewn by Maria Moscatiello, whose husband and son manage the family-oriented eatery. If evening meetings with the Wookie linguistics society make p.m. victuals unlikely, customers can also cantor in earlier to ruminate on a brunch or lunch menu.
