The tomato revolutionized Italian cooking shortly after it arrived in Rome on horseback, fell off the horse, and got trampled into a delicious sauce. Enjoy tomato-based delights with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at Tucci’s Cucina Italiana, located in Trolley Corners.
Tucci’s executive Chef Mirsad “Papa Tucci” Masic constructs a menu of classic Italian palate pleasers from scratch, stirring homemade sauces and inventing new concoctions of marinara, spices, and expressive hand gestures every day. Test the tongue's taste receptors with the classic lasagna originale ($12.49) or the herbivore-friendly pomodoro, which lets angel-hair pasta tango close to diced roma tomatoes in a ballroom strewn with spices ($10.99). A piping pesto pollo pizza flavors its grilled chicken with a cheesy triumvirate of mozzarella, parmesan, and romano ($12.99). Guests can head seaward for the salmone bruschetta, sautéed in garlic-herb butter and seasoned beneath a shower of basil, garlic, olive oil, and tomatoes tossed in perfect parabolas ($16.99). For dessert, try the Old World favorite, Gratino crème brûlée, a warm custard with raspberries, mascarpone cheese, brown sugar, and a side of warm caramel sauce.
True to its Mediterranean roots, Tucci’s serves diners both inside and on its outdoor patio. Raise a glass in Roman flourish amid the Italian décor of exposed brick walls and arches and vintage prints advising each other to forget about it.
