What You'll Get
If more waiters learned to sing, patrons would be more inclined to use breadsticks for their intended purpose of drumming rather than filling up before the arrival of their meal. Appease your hunger harmoniously with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of fresh Italian fare and musical entertainment at The Italian Inn on Camp Bowie Boulevard. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only, and it cannot be used toward alcohol.
Lined with private, fully enclosed dining booths equally suited for intimate and casual gatherings, the main seating section at The Italian Inn is united by permeating aromas of freshly made dinner fare. Treat your sniffer to some saturated action by hovering over a fresh plate of fried calamari ($7.55) or shrimp scampi ($8.95) to start; tables inscribed with the autographs and messages of decades of past diners set the mood for sharing. Once your appetite is properly piqued, apply it to a hearty entree such as veal cutlet parmesan ($15.95), alfredo-smothered manicotti ($11.95), or chicken alla pesto, comprised of delicately diced chicken in a light pesto sauce with artichokes, mushrooms, tomatoes, and black olives ($14.95). Tasty kid-friendly options, including spaghetti and meatballs ($6.95), keep young diners satisfied so they won't have any late-night snack attacks during which they find their college fund and eat right into it.
A well-tuned staff resides in The Italian Inn's warm, friendly interior, lighting up hearts and ears with nightly live piano performances and random acts of serenade service. Snuggle up with a loved one as you listen to the sweet sounds and finish your feast with something from The Italian Inn's dessert menu, replete with 20 decadent rotating options. Or, simply cap off the night with an elegant, tall glass of meat sauce ($1.50 for a side portion).
Not valid on New Year's Eve or Valentine's Day.

About The Italian Inn
In the gently lit restaurant, a waiter in black trousers and white shirt glides between tables toward one of many private booths. When he reaches his destination, he opens his mouth to greet the waiting guests and take their order, but instead of speaking, he bursts into song. The singing waiters’ nightly performances help to fuel the happy chatter that rolls across diners at The Italian Inn as soon as they pass the red-and-white striped pole near the entryway. As a live musician sits down at a piano to join the servers in their songs, wall sconces and tabletop candles flicker. Red, blue, and green light-garlands run across the room, casting playful hues on walls covered in handwritten epigrams, love notes, and messages from cardiologists concerned by hearts full of letters.
Chefs load plates with USDA Choice beef or decorate pastas imported from small Italian towns with sauces made fresh daily or imported olive oil. In the kitchen, the crew crafts soups, dressings, and desserts anew each day, and servers scoot past to grab bottles from a cellar crowded with international red, white, and bubbling vintages.
