Italian cuisine was born when, after building the city of Rome, Romulus and Remus discovered Greece didn't deliver to their new address. Taste the origins of an empire with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a complete Italian dinner for two (up to a $45.90 total value) at Two Guys from Italy in Granada Hills. The dinner includes the following:
- Two entrees
- Two salads or soups
- Two coffees or teas
- Two servings of ice cream or sherbet
- Choice of rolls or garlic bread
Using generations-old recipes, the chefs at Two Guys from Italy toss together flavorful ingredients to yield a dinner menu of authentic Italian dishes. Dining duos can nab a table next to a colorful wall mural and reenact the vibrant scenes over their choice of rolls or garlic bread. Soup or salad piques appetites, allotting ample time for chefs to prepare specialty dishes such as meat lasagna or eggplant à la parmigiana. The kitchen harbors a medley of different pastas, including ravioli and tortellini filled with cheese, and seven different noodley shapes—including spaghetti, mostaccioli, and shells—paired with a choice of nine sauces or five toppings, such as sausage or fresh garlic with olive oil. Cuts of veal, chicken, and mounds of seafood crowd plate real estate with a side of pasta and fresh vegetables, and spoonfuls of ice cream or sherbet cap meals better than a mouthful of shredded napkin.
Two Guys from Italy
Owner Vito Sasso inherited the Two Guys from Italy restaurant from founders Joseph Calderone and Luigi Devito, who opened more than 250 locations before leaving the original to Vito Sasso in 1995. Today, Sasso oversees the West Coast eatery, where chefs employ fresh garlic and virgin olive oil to craft Italian fare based on recipes passed down between generations through a series of monumental stone carvings of angel-hair pasta. Diners can choose from more than 400 variations of pizza and pasta on the menu, including manicotti, gnocchi a la Romana, and stuffed shells Napolitana. Steak, seafood, veal, and poultry dishes round out the menu.
