What You'll Get
Making pasta requires just the right balance of flour and eggs, much like the perfect April Fools' Day prank. Get serious about good food with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of dine-in Italian fare and drinks at Pines of Florence DC.
Pines of Florence folds 17 years of Italian cooking into every dish, piling plates full of fresh pizza, hearty veal and seafood dishes, and house-made pastas. Diners begin with appetizers such as the mozzarella caprese ($6.95), where slices of tomato, mozzarella, and basil compile a red, white, and green flavor combination that curbs hunger as it simultaneously screens for color-blindness. Patrons can share savory slices from a 10-inch to 16-inch pizza ($7.95–$12) or twist forks into handcrafted pastas such as fettuccini alfredo with chicken ($11.95) or potato gnocchi with herbed marinara ($11.95). Ossobuco veal shank ($17.95) satisfies cravings for both protein and produce by simmering the tender shank in tomato sauce and garlic, and sprinkling it with green peppers, onions, and mushrooms, and the steamed shrimp fra diavolo ($15.95) tickles taste buds with italian spices, fresh marinara, and a spot-on impersonation of Danny DeVito.

About Pines of Florence
Wood-paneled walls and small floral accents in Pines of Florence's dining room evoke the familiar home of a childhood friend. The air is perfumed with the scent of warm, authentic Italian fare that emerges from the restaurant’s kitchen on plates large enough to share with friends or your own family. The attentive chefs mix, roll, and churn fresh fettuccini noodles, ravioli shells, and gnocchi that they ladle in freshly made red and white sauces. The chefs let tender pasta stand alone in its al dente glory or serve it alongside clams or carefully chosen cuts of chicken, eggplant, and veal. After dinner, patrons can lift a generous chocolate cannoli to their ears to hear the sound of Italy’s famed mascarpone-cheese ocean.
