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 Italian cuisine and drinks at the Saucy Noodle Ristorante in the Bonnie Brae Shopping Center. Choose between two options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine during dinner.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine during lunch.
The Saucy Noodle's trademark red-and-white canopy has been welcoming locals with piping hot platters and Old World Italian charm for more than four decades. Drop in for lunch and demurely dine on crisp caesar salad ($6.95) sprinkled with fresh romano cheeses and homemade dressing. Italian meatball sliders ($7.95) bubble with caramelized onions and mozzarella cheese, and tempting pastas ($7.95+) and specialty plates such as eggplant parmigiana ($8.95) inspire formerly recalcitrant taste buds to sing Billy Joel's greatest hits.
Select savory slices of piquant pies such as the garlic marinara sauced Ferrari ($13.50 small; $16 large), or accessorize your own dough disk du jour (starting at $10 for a small cheese). Linger for a later evening meal, and delve into a zesty lineup of decadent dishes such as baked rigatoni parmigiana with meatballs and sausage ($14.95 for a half order; $16.95 for a full order) or succulent shrimp marinara, craveable crustaceans hot-tubbing in the house's famous marinara sauce ($18.95 for a half order; $20.95 for a full order). The Saucy Noodle's full scope of pizzas are also available for dinner, including the signature Nathan's Saturday Night Pie stacked with hot italian link sausage and thick-sliced mushrooms ($18). The intimate dining space sets the mood for sharing chocolate ganache cake ($6.95) postmeal or writing sauce-inked sonnets to your loved one by candlelight.
