What You'll Get
Italy has given us legendary works of art, from the evocative paintings of Caravaggio and da Vinci to the miniature meat sculptures of Boyardee. Admire edible Italian masterpieces with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine at Vino Ristorante in Morrisville.
Vino Ristorante's multinational staff concocts a menu of scrumptious Italian comfort fare derived from Old and New World recipes. Customers can commence chew-a-thons with imported cured Italian cold cuts ($10), paired with fine cheese and marinated olives, or Prince Edward Island mussels ($8), which soak in fish-tomato broth after being stripped of their valuable cubic zirconia. Homemade veal-and-spinach ravioli ($13) arrives at tables plated in Northern Italian fashion and drenched in mascarpone cream sauce. Inspired by the recipes of America's Italian immigrants, Vino Ristorante's culinary craftsmen blend authentic vodka tomato cream sauce ($11) to coat chewy bites of penne and prosciutto, and they layer delicate sheets of pasta between nutrient-rich strata of fresh vegetables, ricotta cheese, and sauce to sculpt the vegetable lasagna ($12). Diners can also choose from 10 Neapolitan-style pizzas ($9–$17), which cradle mozzarella like an au pair on a dairy farm.

About Vino Ristorante
At Vino Ristorante, every dining experience blends on the New-World traditions of Italian-Americans and the Old-World presentations of cuisine native to Northern Italy. Chefs craft traditional and contemporary comfort foods, employing homemade pastas as well as gluten-free and whole-wheat alternatives. Entrees range from freshly grilled meats with a delicate topping of fresh arugula to sauce-laden bowls of spaghetti with homemade meatballs. Bartenders accessorize each meal with glasses of Italian wine or cocktails made with hand-squeezed juices, freshly muddled berries, and ice cubes fashioned by an animatronic Mr. Freeze.
Rustic yellow walls stretch up to the high ceilings in Vino Ristorante’s dining room, lending an Old-World charm to the polished wooden tables and metalwork that evoke a more modern feel. On Saturdays, the restaurant hosts live musical performances as long as diners agree to help keep time by chewing in unison.
