Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: For $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Sam Buca's Restaurant and Bar in Palos Heights.
Sam Buca's is part fine-dining oasis of upscale Southern Italian cuisine and part laid-back sports bar serving casually delicious eats. Pull up a chair at a white-clothed table and open the menu of pasta, seafood, and meat dishes as hearty as a tugboat captain's laugh. Lemon chicken ($14), boneless breasts sautéed in a white wine and lemon butter sauce, lets savory poultry flavors dance on palates, while tilapia Italiano ($16), swimming with green onions and diced tomatoes in a white wine sauce, imbues taste buds with aquatic delight. Sam Buca's cannoli ($4) is homemade. Those who prefer the warm glow of TV screens reflected in their beer mug can head to the restaurant's bar and pick up the menu of more casual fare such as sandwiches ($5-$9), pizza ($10-$11), and wings ($8).
