Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine at Pranzo Italian Grill, located on the western edge of the Historic District, in Santa Fe.
The friendly, passionate oenophiles at Pranzo Italian Grill skillfully weave pasta and spirits in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Executive chef Antonio Mendoza has crafted a menu of dishes both hearty and delicate, such as the lasagna bolognese, which swathes ricotta, fresh mozzarella, and meatballs in bolognese and marinara sauces and bakes under cozy sheets of fresh pasta ($16.45 for lunch, 17.95 for dinner). Or indulge in the spaghetti con polpette di carne, using your nose to inhale its aromatic scents and then amorously roll meatballs to a loved one ($15.45 for full lunch order, 17.95 for full dinner order). Try the insalata astice, sautéed lobster, mixed greens, olives, tomato, and fresh pear, and topped with pine nuts, pear vinaigrette and gorgonzola ($22.95). Pranzo Italian Grill's steady lineup of live weekend entertainment showcases the Broadway cabaret stylings of David Geist and special guests; visit their website for the entertainment calendar. Although this Groupon cannot be used toward alcohol, Pranzo Italian Grill also boasts an extensive list of wines.
