A man's home is his castle, but only in Italian restaurants can he wield a dried-pasta scepter and encircle his table with a marinara moat. Get the royal treatment with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual Italian fare, drinks, and more at Rhodes Ranch Club House, located at Rhodes Ranch Golf Course.
With sweeping views of the course's spiky palms, rolling greens, and mountains of discarded golf balls, the gracious dining room of Rhodes Ranch Club House immerses diners in nature's carefully manicured splendor. Sicilian head chef Rosario Russo and his staff craft the menu's all-star lineup of hearty hunger smackdowns, such as the 16-inch meat-lover's pizza, which unites five feuding protein tribes in one peaceful crust kingdom ($18.99). Plunge four-pronged pasta pitchforks into the restaurant's signature penne plate, whose vodka-sauce seas teem with peas, onions, and ground italian sausage ($12.99), or test molar mettle against the mixed greens, wishy-washy feta cheese, and indecisive blackened chicken breast of a greek salad ($10.99).
On weekend mornings, breakfast munchers can fill their sleep-emptied stomach sacks with the New York steak and two eggs poached, scrambled, Big Willie, or any other style ($8.99). At night, the clubhouse's full bar soothes stresses with fermented refreshments. Nimble waiters bear these and other delicacies into the lively dining room, where loquacious flat-screens on the walls happily chatter the latest TV news and sports stats.
