The proper way to eat spaghetti is to twirl it around your fork, set that fork aside, get another fork, twirl spaghetti around that fork, and then keep doing that until all the spaghetti is on forks. Fill up on Italian fare with this Groupon.

Spaghetti Bender

In 1969, as San Francisco’s hippies espoused their progressive ideas, the Hoskinson family stuck to the traditions of the Old World as they set foot in the kitchen of their new restaurant, Spaghetti Bender. Today, the family’s stock of classic recipes helps Executive Chef Alphonso Gomez craft more than 15 pasta dishes, ranging from pasta tossed with italian bacon and green peas to spinach tortellini stuffed with ricotta. For carnivorous appetites, Alphonso dishes out portions of chicken marsala and veal parmesan, as well as shrimp and scallop entrees whose preparations change monthly in accordance with new recipes scribbled onto each full moon. Diners can enjoy their entrees à la carte or accompanied by soup, salad, and garlic bread as complete dinners. Meals can unfold inside Spaghetti Bender’s dining room, which retains the old-school decor from its 1976 remodeling, or on its alfresco patio, which keeps diners entertained with a pair of televisions.

We really enjoyed our dinner there, as always. My husband always comments that we should go back more often. The food is always delicious and the service is very good. We love to go there for family celebrations. But we've never brought the whole family at once because we would probably fill one of your rooms. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
