Although Donatello is now known mainly as an aberrant Testudine, his most lasting contribution to civilization was the sculpting of the first pasta noodle. Hold beauty in your mouth with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at Sutera's Italian Restaurant in Westwood, just west of the Plaza.
Sutera's menu serves up Italian classics descended from founder Grandpa Vincent Sutera's original recipes. Sample the house secrets of an appetizing house salad with Sutera’s house-made Italian dressing ($2.99) before moving down the menu to a mountain of steaming linguini smattered with garlic shrimp and mushroom sauce ($13.99). For a lighter entree, eaters can go handheld with one of Sutera's sandwiches, such as the Italian-chicken sandwich with grilled breast meat, mozzarella cheese, and Sutera's house-made red sauce served with a choice of fries, rigatoni, chilled pasta-salad, or potato chips ($7.99). To cater to a crowd after a shopping spree at the nearby Plaza, or to carb-load on the way to the Nelson-Atkins, order up a supreme large pizza and frolic amidst the sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, mushrooms, and onions that dot the mozzarella-covered slicescape ($15.99).
- Really good pizza and a cozy nice atmosphere. It's a nice place to meet friends or family. – foodsnob, Urbanspoon
- The meat lasagna was FANTASTIC!! I loved the flavoring on the meat was [sic] really great and I felt that the sauce tasted homemade. It was nice to have a meal that was exactly what I was looking for. – Emily C., Yelp
Sutera's Italian Restaurant
Windows covering the wall let floods of natural light pour across servers who bear trays of pastas and pizzas through Sutera's Italian Restaurant, which has been in business for three decades. As night falls, domed hanging lights glow overhead like hovering spacecraft, illuminating a weathered wooden bar where wall compartments backed in vibrant red contain ranks of bottled wines. At tables, patrons tear into meatball subs and burgers with italian seasoning, causing traders in napkin futures to pull out their cell phones.
