The Italians of old combined their most treasured cultural assets by commissioning Michelangelo to craft ceiling frescos of waving spaghetti, placid tomato sauce ponds, and meatball-headed goddesses. Embrace the culinary arts with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of take-out or delivery Italian fare from VB to Go, a division of Villa Brunetti, in Franklin Park. Delivery is available for an extra fee.
Customers enjoy VB to Go’s classic Italian-American entrées in the comfort of their own domiciles, nestled next to sides of salad, steak fries, and bread that come standard. The giambotta is a mélange of sausage, black olives, and an Italian grandmother's garden's worth of veggies bathing in a light tomato sauce ($11.95), and battered slices of eggplant parmigian arrive draped in mozzarella ($10.50). Sixteen-inch specialty pizzas house hearty portions of toppings, with Windy City classics such as italian beef, giardiniera, and mirrored shavings of the Bean ($17.75). Pasta dishes swathe savory aliments such as the ricotta and spinach that meld inside stuffed shells ($9.25) or the shrimp and spicy tomato sauce that accent the capricciosa ($12.95).
