A restaurant meal is incomplete without its after-dinner mint, which cleanses the palate before patrons gnaw a subterranean tunnel home. Chew the scenery with today’s Groupon to Tommaso’s Italian Grill in Alvin, not valid on Fridays, Saturdays, and holidays. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, wings, and burgers.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of pizza, wings, and burgers.
Tommaso’s Italian Grill warms bellies with a menu of American favorites and pizzas concocted from house-made dough and freshly made sauces. The chefs hand-toss dough ($7+ for cheese and one topping) and artfully decorate disks with jalapeño, hamburger, and spinach ($1.25+/topping) before hanging them on the back diners’ chairs. Between bites of hot wings ($5.99 for seven), guests can solicit investment advice from a collection of sage bobbleheads on a windowsill or catch reflections of a double meat burger ($6.99) on the surface of a hanging disco ball. Augment a selection of pastas ($7.99+) with homemade sauces—such as simple garlic and olive oil or a protein-rich meat sauce—and top dishes off with a pair of meatballs ($2) or a sextet of shrimp ($4).
A pair of metal Texas star signs flanks the door of the 30-year-old eatery, complete with an outdoor patio and newly renovated, 700-square-foot bar, and wood-paneled walls bear the weight of big-screen TVs, road signs, neon beer signs, and a DVD copy of Signs. Tommaso’s hosts regular screenings of football games, drawing in local pigskin and pizza fans.
