Italian cuisine was born when, after building the city of Rome, Romulus and Remus discovered Greece didn't deliver to their new address. Taste the origins of an empire with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pizza, calzones, and espresso at Pietro’s. This Groupon is valid at the locations in Bossier City and Longview.
Pietro’s has baked hand-tossed New York–style pizza, calzones, and hot sandwiches in a stone gas oven for more than 30 years, each hand-crafted from secret Sicilian family recipes. Oven-baked steak and cheese sandwiches taunt tasteless rulers with 12 inches of deliciousness ($7.99), and three-cheese spinach calzones turn and fold the doughtables on regular pizzas ($6.49). The eatery employs 100 percent whole milk mozzarella in the construction of each specialty pie, such as the Hawaiian luau pizza, a festive mouth mingler with juicy pineapple and baked ham in a bubbling blanket of mozzarella cheese ($15.99 for a 14”; $19.99 for an 18”). Patrons are also free to itemize pizza by the slice, minimizing leftovers and risk of marinara audits.
Pietro’s also sweetens palates with a host of desserts and more than 24 flavors of gelato and sorbet ($3.25 for two scoops), including vanilla-bean gelato and lemon, strawberry, and mango sorbet, which allow tasters to lick frozen fruit without fear of a stuck tongue. As an authorized illy Italian-espresso retailer, Pietro’s tall, foamy cappuccinos ($2.75) and espresso-dipped tiramisu ($4.25) can also end meals with authentic, decadent flavor.
