Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it’s submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and wine at Nostalgi'a Cancione E Vino in Glendale.
Nostalgi'a Cancione E Vino's Chef Polo extends an experienced hand to pepper plates with a menu of fresh, creative Italian cuisine within a cozy, family-friendly eatery. Sunday through Thursday, patrons can park incisors in delectable dinner entrees, such as the South Beach pizza, a pie packed with portobello mushrooms, roasted peppers, spinach, caramelized onions, feta, and goat cheese ($11.99). Amorous eaters can succumb to the sweet flavors and love ballads of Italian sausage and marinara in the Salciccia pasta ($11.95). Meanwhile, midday munchers can enjoy the lunch menu any day of the week, with bites including the toasty chicken-parmesan sandwich ($6.95) and the shrimp-and-avocado salad, slathered in Chef Polo's original tequila-lime dressing ($8.95).
While swathing palates in sophisticated flavors and discussing the fashion-forward nature of Abe Lincoln, patrons can buoy belly-bound bites with sips of aromatic wines. Then, after sating appetites, amble over to Glendale's nearby shopping and historical district for post-eat entertainment.
Nostalgi’a Cancione E Vino
Wine-kissed seafood, gourmet pizzas, and pastas tossed with velvety cream sauces populate the red-and-white checkered tabletops at Nostalgi’a Cancione E Vino. To prepare satisfying meals, Chef Polo decorates pies with toppings such as artichoke hearts, caramelized onions, and sweet Italian sausage. His team also arranges salmon filets over beds of linguini and scampi sauce, layers mushrooms between spinach and sheets of lasagna pasta, and stuffs ravioli with soft morsels of lobster.
A wine list boasts more than 50 vintages hailing from California to Portugal. More elaborate libations include the Van Gogh espresso martini, which combines chocolate vodka and fresh espresso using the back end of a paintbrush.
