Though bobbing for apples in cold water can be a fun party activity, asking dinner guests to bob for pasta in pot of marinara sauce is only fun until they realize you’re serving soup. Today’s Groupon lets you make it up to them with fresh Italian fare at Primo Italiano in Rockville. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of dinner fare.
- For $6, you get $12 worth of lunch fare.
At Primo Italiano, customers can get a taste and fill boot-shaped stomachs with 10 types of fresh pasta, New York–style pizza, and classic Italian baked dishes prepared according to family recipe. Fried ravioli adds crisp texture to a creamy pocket of cheese ($5.95), while an antipasto platter makes for a good appetizer to share with friends or a handsome fork ($10.95). Secure a hot sub on your lunchtime agenda such as the grilled italian sausage, heaped with grilled peppers and onions ($8.45). Treat your mouth to one of Primo Italiano’s specialty dishes such as baked penne with ricotta and mozzarella ($12.95), or test the strength of a boastful plate of muscles by topping them with fresh linguini and a double dose of marinara ($17.95).
Large slices of New York–style pizza are on hand to settle wedge-shaped hunger pains, including white pizza—which forgoes traditional red sauce in favor of a creamy ricotta base, before being topped with a medley of gourmet ingredients ranging from asparagus and goat cheese, to artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes ($8.95+). Desserts such as cannoli ($4) and tiramisu ($4) are on hand for dessert devotees, while those morally opposed to chewing can find liquid nourishment in the form of an espresso or cappuccino, or fine wines and beer, which are available for take home.
Eight Yelpers give Primo Italiano an average of 3.5 stars:
- If you're looking for pizza at the Town Center- go here instead of Oro Pomodoro. It's more authentic, you get more food, and it tastes so much better. – Irene F., 12/13/2009
- Another comfort food stop. Order at the front, pay, get a number and find a table. Casual environment with friendly peeps. – Sarah C., 2/11/2009
