Italian food's tantalizing taste is the stuff of legend, as evidenced by Sisyphus' eternally mouth-watering trial of pushing a giant meatball up a slope. Experience an edible epic with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine at Tony's Place in West Roxbury.
Tony's, a relaxed, family-friendly restaurant and sports bar, has a lengthy menu of hearty Italian comfort-food favorites and pizzas (The Boston Globe featured Tony’s Place in its 2009 pizza crawl.) Sup on fresh pasta specialties including the seafood cioppino, a full school roster of mussels, shrimp, and scallops tossed with wine and garlic over delicate linguini ($17.99). The veal and eggplant parmigiana, a rich-flavored classic, is a duo of veal fillet and fresh breaded eggplant, enrobed in a special house tomato sauce ($12.59). Finish with a sweet treat of homemade Italian spumoni ($3.29) as you relax in the homey dining room, which has framed pictures, dark wood paneling, and a barely perceptible absence of embarrassing baby photos.
