For centuries, pizza and pasta battled for the title of Italy’s most beloved dish, an honor that was ultimately bestowed upon Sophia Loren. Cast your vote for the Boot’s best culinary creation with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Italian fare at The Stone and Paddle. Today's deal is good at both The Stone and Paddle locations in Manchester and Vernon.
Customers arriving at either The Stone and Paddle locations are greeted by the aroma of fresh, California-style thin-crust pizzas and flatbread stone sandwiches as they bake to crisp perfection atop a 600-degree stone. While you whiff, peruse a menu built around 25 signature pies that draw inspiration from Italy's most beloved dishes such as the parmesan, olive oil, and pepper-laden chicken cacciatore pizza (12", $12.45; 16", $15.95), or the shrimp, pepper, fresh garlic, and butter-smothered shrimp scampi pizza (12", $13.95; 16", $18.55). Or, personalize your pie by arranging an array of irresistible toppers such as meatballs, banana peppers, scallops, and artichokes to spell out your mother's maiden name. The Stone and Paddle's signature hearth-baked sandwiches are crafted atop a secret recipe flatbread before cooks top them with fresh herbs and whisper the secret location of the holy grail to a side of onion rings ($2.25) or fries ($1.75), while hearty helpings of pasta––such as the meaty rigatoni bolognese with ricotta ($10.45)––await to fill the bellies of faithful fork fans.
Unlike some restaurants that sacrifice quantity for quality, The Stone and Paddle combines its always-fresh philosophy with larger portions, allowing customers to return home with a midnight snack or extremely aromatic scrapbook filler. Grab today's Groupon and head in to your nearest The Stone and Paddle location to surround yourself in classic Italian cuisine, which is surrounded by a familial staff, which is surrounded by an authentic family atmosphere, which is surrounded by walls.
The Stone and Paddle
The Stone and Paddle’s California-style thin-crust pizzas acquire their subtle crunch while baking atop a hot stone in a 600-degree oven. Gourmet toppings such as hot sausage, shrimp and artichoke, and spinach and gorgonzola grace the pies, which share table space with flatbread sandwiches that are also stone-baked. Though chefs must return nightly to the steel-encased bunker where they safeguard their secret dough recipe, guests can enjoy a new location in Rocky Hill, linger on the shaded patio at the Vernon location or watch sports on Manchester's flat-screen TVs.
