Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane fuel mixture of tomato sauce and mustache hair, which made them run forever but left disquieting leaks on driveways. Power your body in an appetizing way with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual Italian bistro cuisine at Verso Restaurant, located on Broadview Road in Parma.
Verso has expanded the traditional range of Italian fare to include Verso chips ($7), a deliciously seasoned stack of house-made potato chips heaped with provolone cheese, chunks of bacon, and green onion. Basic pizzas range from $6 to $16 to start, depending on size and shape (circle or sheet—sheets require 12 to 24 hours of advance notice to ensure their 800-thread-count goodness). Try a specialty option, such as a Caribbean ($18 for a large), topped with honey-lime oil, provolone, jerk chicken, mangos, caramelized onions, and cilantro. Sandwiches are available for easy gripping—bite into a chicken Philly ($7) with roasted chicken, sautéed peppers, mushrooms, onions, and cheese served on a hoagie. Pasta ranges from $9 to $11, with meaty additions running an extra $2 to $3, and comes in every imaginable shape and length, including whole-wheat penne. Wash it all down with a variety of $2 beverages, or imbibe from the beer and wine lists ($4 to $16).
Verso dishes up a casual bistro atmosphere in addition to hot pizza pies. With crisp concert stills dotting the walls, music is the theme running throughout this intimate villa of victuals. The eclectic décor can serve as a talking point for an awkward first date, or a fighting point for a last date that ends with the dramatic declaration Lennon was the best Beatle, and much bester than you, certainly. Verso is versatile and family friendly, with a variety of edible choices certain to please even the pickiest eater.
