Pioneering Italians were not only the first to put tomatoes in cuisine, they were also the first people to take photographs of themselves pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Delight in their inventiveness with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at The Original Giuseppi's Pizza and Pasta in Bluffton.
For more than 20 years, Giuseppi's Pizza and Pasta has been answering the calls of pizza-craving innards with a menu chalk full of Italian eats. With homemade sauce concocted of tomatoes from California, and dough made in-house daily, the eatery creates meals as fresh as Will Smith in the '90s. Start the fresh feast with the tomato cheese garlic bread, heartily sprinkled with fresh roma tomatoes, provolone, mozzarella, and parmesan ($5.50), or corndog bites served with a side of honey mustard ($5.95). The feta, kalamata olives, artichokes, and tomatoes give the Jimmy the Greek pizza a Mediterranean twist, and the fresh mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and black olives lay tucked under hand-tossed dough in the Macaboli calzone like a sleeping child under their covers or a bald head under a toupee ($7.50). For a more portable plate, on-the-go munchers can clasp hold of the Weggiedilla, a sandwich creation stuffed with marinated baked chicken, bacon, cheeses, onion, barbecue sauce, and homemade ranch ($7.95), or the meatball parmesan hoagie ($7.50).
Couple a savory selection with a tongue-chilling beer, such as an Amstel Light or Palmetto pale ale, or a glass of palate-tickling chardonnay from Sonoma or cabernet sauvignon from Washington. The chocolate lava cake, bourbon pecan pie, and triple-chocolate cheesecake can sweetly wrap-up the meal like an end-of-the-date Hershey's kiss ($5.95 each).
