The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of authentic Italian cuisine at Saporito's Florence Club Cafe in Hull.
Saporito's crafts traditional Italian recipes from fresh, high-quality ingredients and enhances fine-dining experiences with eye-popping plated presentations. The seasonally rotating menu packs a punch with authentic, ever-changing dishes such as stuzi (Italian bar snacks) including fried oysters with fennel-romaine salad and remoulade sauce ($5). Circle-devourers can get pie-eyed with the Neapolitan-style Pizzetta ($11) and butter-poached lobster is assisted to your mouth hoop with sardinian couscous, slivered asparagus, and roasted mushrooms with truffle oil ($27). A bevy of house-made pastas and steak selections, such as a dinner order of orecchiette––pasta with sausage, oven-cured tomatoes, broccolini, garlic, and lemon ($18)––and vegetarian selections sate a green tooth with a classic red-and-golden beet salad with hazelnut goat cheese ($9).
Once inside Saporito's homey atmosphere, patrons can slide into intimate white booths with romantic candlelight for a night reminiscent of a week backpacking through the Italian suburbs.
