What You'll Get
Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it’s submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Italian fare at Rocco's Grill in Lakeway.
Rocco's Grill, which was voted Austin's best restaurant in 2009 by Citysearchers, pleases palates with traditional Italian dishes from the lunch and dinner menus. Celebrate a dinner with friends over an appetizer of jumbo-lump crab cake drizzled in spicy remoulade ($12) or bella baci, a bacon-wrapped jalapeno stuffed with shrimp and cheese ($10). Spicy pecan salads with apples and gorgonzola crumbles ($8) set the stage for the pollo piazza's prosciutto and fontina cheese stuffing ($19), and salmon alessondra ($21) enables patrons to fill stomachs with a fresh catch without learning fishing from a bear. Carnivores and part-time vegetarians excite incisors with Rocco's pepper steak marsala, a flavorful tenderloin crusted with course black pepper, mesquite grilled, and served with a creamy marsala sauce ($26).
Diners can study the vibrant hand-painted murals, take in award-winning views of Yaupon golf course and watch talented servers skillfully shuttle plates from the open kitchen. With contemporary décor and a spacious dining room, Rocco's Grill offers an inviting atmosphere for family feasts or romantic dinners with a blind date and her parents.
