A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savor pasta's forced flexibility with this Groupon.
$10 for $20 Worth of Italian Fare
Classic pasta dishes, such as house-made lasagna ($12.95), populate the trattoria’s menu alongside hand-tossed Italian margherita pizza ($15.95 for a large) and chef’s specials, such as grilled grouper marinated with fresh garlic and rosemary ($18.95)
The Roman-Italian menu at Tonino’s Trattoria warms hearts with classic chicken, veal, and seafood plates alongside other saucy favorites. Pasta dishes include lasagna built from fresh sheets of pasta as well as linguini Amalfi, populated with chopped grouper, clams, and mussels beneath creamy marinara. The pizza chefs hand twirl crusts before transforming them into New York style pies or Italian pizzette, such as the refreshing margherita stacked with fresh tomatoes, basil, garlic, and pieces of a Venetian canal.
The homey trattoria evokes an alfresco-Italian eatery with murals of canals and bridges and lush faux vines, which spill from cutouts in the walls and wind around the top of a bar stocked with martini mixings and wine. Tables await diners with classy trappings of thick white tablecloths and emerald-green napkins blooming from empty wineglasses, and with sun-and-shade season fare on the outdoor patio, where patrons enjoy light breezes from a cluster of tables ringed by a white fence.
