Pines of Florence - Ballston - Virginia Square: $10 for $20 Worth of Italian Cuisine at Pines of Florence

Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane-fuel mixture of tomato sauce and mustache hair, which made them run forever but left ladybug-luring leaks in driveways. Power your body-motor without luring pests with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of rustic Italian cuisine at Pines of Florence. The Arlington eatery specializes in rich, rustic fare, specialty pizzas, and a romantic ambiance.

Preheat your appetite with fried calamari ($6.95) or peppers ($6.95) before moving on to Pines of Florence's hearty, homemade pasta. Slurp fettuccine alfredo, chunky noodles liberally globbed with thick, buttery cream sauce ($11.95), or wrap mouth muscles around cheesy manicotti ($11.95). Vegetarians can spear noodly gnocchi splashed in marinara ($11.95) or spinach manicotti ($11.95). Pines of Florence's menu also offers pizzas (from $7 for a small), sub sandwiches ($7.95), and classic chicken, veal, and seafood dishes. For dessert, fork through chocolate cannoli ($4.25), or slice of tiramisu ($4.95).

A cozy, romantic dining room coupled with attentive service makes Pines of Florence more comforting than sipping warm milk while drifting off to sleep in a beanbag stuffed with memories. Late hours (until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays) accommodate late-night carb cravings.

Reviews

Metromix dishes a good review of Pines of Florence, and Yelpers give it three stars. TripAdvisors give 3.5, and six Yahoo! Localers give 4.5. 78% of Urbanspooners recommend it:

  • If you're in the mood for old-fashioned Italian, where sauce choices run red to white, this is the place for you. – Metromix
  • The spaghetti Florence was wonderful and had the BEST tomato cream sauce I have ever had. – Megan W, Yahoo! Local
  • One of my favorites is the white bean sauce/appetizer. It's delicately garlicky and flavorful. The waitstaff at both places are native Italians, which adds to the ambiance. – Demeter, Yahoo! Local

Toscana Grill

There's something unmistakably Italian about Toscana Grill. Maybe it's the white marble and ebony wood accents in the dining room, or maybe it's the hospitality with which the servers greet each guest. In all likelihood, it's probably both of these things—plus a menu of northern Italian dishes crafted with local produce and herbs.

All of the traditional favorites are here, including eggplant parmigiana, spinach ravioli alfredo, and chicken marsala with mushrooms. But it's not all classics. There are also plenty of genre-bending pizzas, such as one topped with shrimp, white-wine sauce, butter, and garlic. A bottle of wine from the bar makes a perfect companion to any meal, especially if you dress it up like a person and pretend that it can talk.
