Italians were not only the first people to put tomatoes in cuisine, but also the first to take photographs of themselves pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Delight in their inventiveness with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Soprano's Italian Bistro in Chesterfield.
Soprano’s Italian Bistro’s menu brims with pizzas, pastas, and other traditional Italian favorites. Homemade ciabatta bread cradles savory stuffings in grilled panini sandwiches such as The Boss, a spicy trio of capicollo, fresh mozzarella, and sliced tomato ($5.95), or The Mobster, a succulent syndicate of roast beef, provolone, and mayo served with a side of fries and a succinct strategy for a super-secret museum heist ($5.95). Pasta entrees provide picky patrons a choice of spaghetti, penne, bow tie, or rotini dressed to order in marinara ($7.95) or meat sauce ($8.95), and are also available baked ($1 extra). Fans of ready-to-wear meals can opt instead for sophisticated servings of house specialties such as eggplant rollatini parmigiana topped with ricotta and mozzarella ($10.95) or penne Soprano graced with sausage, spinach, a heavenly singing voice, and a garlicky butter sauce ($8.95). Rounding out square-meal offerings, pizzas (starting at $14.50 for a 12"x18" cheese) can be customized with a choice of toppings including meatballs, fresh garlic, banana peppers, and pepperoni ($1–$2 each) and arrive at tables "Sicilian style," which bears a striking resemblance to deep dish but looks better in a fedora.
