Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary Italian cuisine and bar drinks at Tuscano Grille in Clearwater. The restaurant serves fresh plates Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuscano is closed Sunday for jump-rope practice. Calling ahead for reservations is not required but gently suggested.
Every time a guest orders from Tuscano Grille's savory menu, an angel-hair noodle cries, knowing that its fate has been decided. Start with buttermilk-battered fried artichokes and mushrooms with horseradish-cream sauce ($7.95), or mix up a bowl of greens tossed among pears, gorgonzola, candied walnuts, and dried cranberries in a honey-poppy-seed vinaigrette ($7.95). Off the grill, main-plate options include the 6-ounce filet mignon ($18.95), regarded as the swordfish of the land, and the 8-ounce swordfish steak ($18.95), regarded as a tenant in most seaman's stomachs.
Shake up the sit-down meal with a cocktail concoction off the bar menu. Sip slowly upon a Cosmo composed of Smirnoff passion fruit, orange liqueur, a splash of lime juice, a splash of cranberry juice, and a dash of class ($6.95), or an after-dinner almonds-and-coffee martini poured with Smirnoff vanilla, Grand Marnier, Frangelico, Kahlua, and coffee ($8.95). Tuscano Grille boasts an extensive wine list in addition to a modest selection of premium scotches. On Friday and Saturday nights you can lounge with a lover or make a toast to a complete stranger who has an Amelia Earhart tattoo during live jazz performances by Tom Baptist.
This Groupon is not valid with other offers, including Tuscano Grille's happy hour.

- For dessert I highly recommend the panacotta, it was out of this world, a perfect light and flavorful ending to a rich and filling dinner. – travelingfromfl, TripAdvisor
