What You'll Get
A four-course meal requires a hefty appetite, a couple hours to dine, and the ability to keep tables clear by eating empty plates before the next dish arrives. Indulge in a diversity of dishes with today's Groupon: for $36, you get a four-course Italian dinner at Vento Restaurant (up to a $72 value). Dinner is served daily from 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
The cuisine crafters at this upscale trattoria mold a menu of Italian dishes, handing out courses that shake hunger with hand-cut pastas, succulent meats, and indulgent desserts. Begin four-course quests with a self-cleaning fork and a barrage of grilled appetizers, including octopus ($8) or house-stuffed lamb sausage frosted in black-olive purée ($8), and answer follow-up stomach grumbles with a second-course pasta dish, such as saffron-infused fettuccine bulked up with duck, shallots, and mushrooms ($16). The selection of entrees catches tender meats mingling with interesting sides, including salmon that swims in roasted yellow-pepper sauce, buoyed by a heap of eggplant caponata ($19). Desserts include a trio of house-made gelato or tiramisu ($9 each), which concludes eating escapades and finally reveals the fate of the handsome, but restless, napkin. Diners are also welcome to select their second and third courses from the slightly higher-priced menu of rotating specials (up to $20 for pasta specials, up to $30 for entree specials).
Lush meals are complemented by an earthy dining room festooned with the gold and brown tones of a football with 14-karat laces. Tubular lights dangle from the ceiling, and the warm tones of dark wood furniture are interrupted by a graphic black and cream print, which is repeated on curtains, upholstered chairs, and pillows used to soften the landings of cartwheeling cannoli.
