The best way to capture a wild, rampaging meal is to hook it with a gigantic pasta lasso. Test your throwin' arm with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of freshly made pastas, fine wines, and more at Via Nove in Ferndale.
Via Nove specializes in the delectable fare predominantly cooked in southern and central Italy, saving taste receptors thousands in air-travel costs to Rome by bringing scintillating entrees to Michigan. Commence your culinary tour of the Italian motherland with an appetizer, such as tortellini ($7) stuffed with ricotta cheese and asparagus. Freshly made pasta headlines Via Nove's absorbing and moderately absorbent menu. Sample the spaghetti carbonara ($16), interspersed with Italian bacon and egg, or indulge in the petto di pollo Montecarlo ($19), a seared chicken breast sidekicked with sautéed zucchini. Via Nove's wine list is a veritable who's-who's of Type A grape bloods, with such bottles as a 2006 Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio ($39) and a 2002 del Vesuvio Lacrima Christi ($35) available for consumption. Those with special liquor requests can even email the bar manager, who'll attempt to concoct whatever specialty drinks amateur mixologists can conceive.
