Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean cuisine at Papachino's.

Papachino's tantalizes Mediterranean-seeking tongue buds with its menu of Greek and Italian edibles, all within the cozy confines of casual atmosphere. Adorn each hand or retractable claw with a classic gyro ($9.95), or sample the full menu's bounty with the mezza platter, a marathon of falafel, gyros, chicken brochette, garlic bread, rice, and tzatziki ($9.95). The spicy marrakech lamb keeps stomaches singing a cayenne-pepper tune, with sautéed onions, peppers, and seasonal vegetables on handmade pita bread ($7.95), while the sausage panini, with its caramelized onions, peppers, spinach, and provolone, acts as a safe haven for italian sausage on the lamb ($6.95). In between savory bites, diners can sip up a selection of staff-suggested wines to complement their meal's intricate flavors and jaunty bow ties.

Papachino's

Despite its expansive menu, Papachino’s is known particularly for one item—gyros. Fresh pita bread blankets the succulent combination of beef and lamb meat, but it’s the dollops of fresh tzatziki sauce, made from yogurt cultured in-house, that seal the deal. Other menu favorites span the Mediterranean, from Italian pastas to Greek moussaka. While munching on steak pita sandwiches or braiding strands of pasta marinara, customers can enjoy the eatery’s eclectic art collection, including a large painted mural of a Greek village as well as individual works by local artists. Every weekend, a live musician stops by and croons customers out of their seats and onto a makeshift dance floor with acoustic covers of hit songs.

We loved this place. Food was terrific, as was the service. Great spot to enjoy prior to attending events at the Gallo. A hidden "GEM". We will be back.
