In today's media-crazed society, many Old-World cooking techniques have been abandoned in favor of high-definition preparations, helping explain why diners are constantly mistaking their calzones for Regis. Revisit high-definition taste instead with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian-American cuisine and drinks at Pasquini's Pizzeria in Lone Tree.
The menu at Pasquini's stars a style line-up of pizzas, including New York, bianca, and Sicilian, slathered in fresh toppings, extra-virgin olive oil, and a signature, homemade pizza sauce. Work your stomach’s brain into a fiber-rich frenzy with a large Italian chopped salad ($8.95), or skip right into a 2-D foodscape with a specialty pizza such as the prosciutto, artfully topped with olive oil, garlic, prosciutto, onion, spinach, and basil ($9.50 for a 10"). Pasta classics include a homemade lasagna constructed with ground beef, marinara, and three cheeses ($10.95), while Bailey’s cheesecake ($5.95) provides a sweet meal ending with a tribute to Italy’s one-time national liquor, which was lost in its war with Ireland.
In addition to hearty grub, Pasquini's promotes lively libation consummation with drink specials that change daily, just like public opinion of the facial expressions on the Statue of Liberty. Families toting kids can feel free to leave the toys at home, as the restaurant supplies bored tots with fresh balls of pizza dough to play with, encouraging them to express their inner Michelangelo with a doughy likeness of David, St. Peter, or Danny DeVito.
