Italians treat their food with the same reverence as their art, which explains the prevalence of marinara sauce splattered on chapel ceilings. Celebrate edible masterpieces with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at Rosie’s A Taste of Italy, located in the Tallahassee Mall.
Owned and operated by three generations of Rosies, Rosie’s A Taste of Italy showcases a menu of authentic Italian dishes crafted with homemade sauces, meats, and dough. Marinara sauce hitches a ride on mouth-bound mozzarella sticks ($6.95), and Rosie’s sausage sandwich smuggles sausage, peppers, and melted cheese across toothy borders ($8.95). Side salads and warm bread flank each pasta entree, such as the chicken alfredo ($13.95) and the sausage pasta doused in pink sauce and mozzarella ($13.95). Like a young stork during its first catering job, eighteen inches of specialty pizza dough deliver artichokes, chicken breast, feta, and alfredo sauce to munching mandibles ($16.95). Finish meals in the casual indoor veranda by delicately nibbling on the mini-cheesecake sampler, a collection of creamy cakes made from only the tiniest cheeses ($4.95).
