Italian food is known for its signature ingredients, including rich marinara, fluffy pasta, and meatballs carved into the shape of Al Pacino’s silhouette. Celebrate tradition with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a three-course dinner for two from a prix fixe menu at SoLita Delray in Delray Beach (up to a $104.50 value). The prix fixe dinner includes:
- One appetizer (up to a $16.50 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $38 value each)
- One dessert (up to a $12 value)<p>
SoLita Delray’s recipes draw on a palette of handpicked ingredients to meld the culinary traditions of Italy and America. Duos practice choreographed fork-spearing routines on starters such as house-made meatballs with streams of freshly made, basil-infused tomato sauce and creamy hillocks of ricotta cheese. Servers usher steaming plates of snapper angela to tables with a posse of peppers, red onions, and clams soaked in white-wine tomato broth like a bib-testing dummy. A bone-in veal chop milanese serenades palates, and pillowy gnocchi twirls gleefully among cheering crowds of chicken, mushrooms, spinach, and roasted pepper as an alabaster curtain of parmesan-cream sauce falls smoothly over the entire spectacle. As contented sighs signal the end of the feast, tiramisu gives tenderly beneath forks, revealing coffee-steeped sweetness powdered with cocoa.
On sunny days, the restaurant’s outdoor patio brims with chatter as diners gaze out across a giant chessboard and mural. Staff welcomes well-behaved canines, allowing furry companions to spend time with owners and practice rudimentary Italian-language skills.
