Teenagers idolize pizza due to its portable nature and refusal to stay in a box, man. Eat your way to independence with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of pizza, pasta, and burgers at Ozella's Pizzeria in O'Fallon.
Ozella's Pizzeria's dough-twirling chefs spin a menu of classic pastas and homemade pizzas prepared from original family recipes. Fingers flock to crisp-fried appetizers such as homemade onion rings ($6.99) and toasted ravioli ($5.49–$5.99). Homemade pizzas garner universal appeal with toppings ranging from traditional cheese ($9.50–$11) to loaded supreme ($13.50–$17), and fusion-seeking diners can enjoy the uncommon combination of an italian cheeseburger parmesan ($6.50). Instead of dipping their forks in sauce and graffiti-ing their table by drawing four concentric circles at once, guests can swirl a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs ($7.50 for a small; $9 for a large). Diners can enjoy their pies between the dining room's beige walls, illuminated by rays of natural light streaming in through floor-to-ceiling front windows. Large murals depicting the original Ozella's and penciled sketches of the chef also decorate the casual restaurant's interior.
