What You'll Get
The extensive use of cheese in Italian cuisine predates the Roman Empire, when early architects envisioned the coupling of ricotta and lasagna noodles as a means of mortaring edible aqueducts. Sample other savory origins of Italian cooking with today's Groupon to Salerno Pincente Express in Palos Heights. Choose between the following options:
- For $6, you get $12 worth of Italian cuisine for dine-in or carryout.
- For $25, you get $50 worth of catered Italian cuisine.
Chefs at Salerno Pincente Express concoct a menu of Italian cuisine taken from the venerated traditions passed on through family recipes. Diners can measure up mandibles against an appetizer of stuffed artichoke ($10.95, available in season) or extract flavors from house tortellini ($13.95) as tongues and fillings employ a good-cop, bad-cop routine to root out tasty alibis. Chefs spin cheese pizzas above their heads ($11.25 for medium, toppings additional) and pitch chicken parmigiana fillets into ovens under a blanket of mozzarella and marinara ($13.95). Panini presses flatten out sizzling sandwiches such as the tomato- and artichoke-topped Capri ($6.95) or Calabrese stacked with capicola, mortadella, prosciutto, and salami ($8.95).
Customers yearning for the aroma of authentic Italian within their own domicile can peruse the catering menu. Pans of steaming spaghetti ($25 for 8–10 servings, $45 for 15–20) play the starchy sidekick in the chicken cacciatore's meaty superheroics ($30 for 12 pieces). Massive submarine sandwiches ($52+) find pairings with minestrone or tortellini soups ($6.95/qt.). Catered meals can be picked up at the restaurant, or delivered within a 20-mile radius ($5 for up to 10 miles, $7.50 for more than 10 miles). Serving spoons chaperone all dishes, and giggly plates, blushing silverware, and napkin boutonnieres can be ushered in for an additional $0.99 per person.

About Salerno Pincente Ristorante - Hodgkins
Salerno Pincente's owners, Andrew Salerno and Frank Pincente, bask in the happy clatter of pots and pans as chefs forge a menu of Italian cuisine. Under the dining room's hanging lights, chicken, steak, veal, and seafood fuel chatter and toasts, and long pasta strands cling to a variety of sauces, setting forks twirling. On sunny days, glasses clink merrily on an outdoor patio, and Trackside OTB provides equine entertainment more enjoyable than a slideshow of Mr. Ed's vacation.
