Italian royalty kept in-house kitchen staff up to par by sending them to culinary workshops, regularly demanding obscure entrees, and ordering them to make all pizzas in the shape of a crown. Enjoy the fruits of Europe's finest fare trainers with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare at Seafood and Spaghetti Works in Port Aransas.
Spaghetti and Seafood Works was originally built as a water park in 1979 before owner Jay Kenigsberg turned his eye to culinary thrills and cultivated a menu of fresh daily seafood, from-scratch pizzas, and other traditional Italian eats. Cordially invite chompers and ordained sea captains to the Seafood Feast's marriage of shrimp, fish, and crab cake ($25.99). The Giant Pasta Platter houses a noodle masterpiece of fettuccine alfredo and lasagna trimmed with manicotti and meatballs ($15.99). Mozzarella vines snare inattentive oregano shakers and customized pizza toppings, such as meatballs and Italian sausage ($9.50 for 12"; $10.99 for 16"; toppings $0.99+ each), and the the Dome steak's phyllo-dough ceiling shelters an 8-ounce fillet mignon slathered in dijon mustard ($23.99).
Diners can cluster under Spaghetti and Seafood Works' colossal dome, originally envisioned as the game room for a water-slide complex. The outdoor seating area is the perfect place to experience a gentle zephyr as you eat or release a pet balloon animal into the wild.
