Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savory blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons. Get a baron's share of this desirable concoction with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Pavone Restaurant on Irving Park.
Sister eatery to the pizza-centric Villa Napoli restaurant, Pavone serves the same savory pies along with an upscale menu filled with authentic Italian dishes made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Inaugurate a night of fork dress-up with a plate of prosciutto and fresh mozzarella ($11), followed by a pasta course of tagliatelle alla Maria, with the choice of chicken or shrimp slathered in a white-wine lemon butter sauce ($13). Unlike acclaimed film-trailer directors, Pavone’s chefs devote themselves to creating gripping main attractions; the chicken vesuvio, its featured bird, is sautéed on the bone with olive oil, garlic, white wine, and potatoes ($13). The New Zealand rack of lamb flanks a hemisphere’s worth of grilled flavor with sides of asparagus and roast potatoes ($23). Cap off your mealsperience with succulent desserts such as gelato ($3) or tiramisu ($5).
Pavone’s delectable cuisine is kept fresh with its classic brick exterior. Large windows reveal a cozy dining space with cheery, art-adorned walls and hardwood floors. Parched patrons can quench their thirst at Pavone’s granite-topped bar while catching up on sports games and yesterday’s horoscopes on the large, flat-screen TV.
