A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savor pasta's forced flexibility with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Vitale's in Oshkosh.
For more than 30 years, Vitale's has been taking guests' senses on a voyage to the old country with fresh, traditional Sicilian dishes prepared from scratch with the finest meats, breads, and signature sauces. Guests can relax with a fine Italian wine while tempting hungry eyes with dinner options from the menu, such as rich fettuccine alfredo ($12.45) and bold meat lasagna ($10.50). More than 10 seafood dishes get fish out of water with the lightly breaded lake perch ($14.45) shouting "Marco," and the pan-fried walleye ($16.45) responding "Polo" while sizzling in the kitchen. The sicilian tenderloin steak ($18.95) comes wearing an authentic Italian coat of seasonings, whereas a trio of chicken parm and two wheels of spinach rotolo ($14.95) arrive swiftly to diners' tables in a makeshift bike.
Vitale’s Italian Cuisine
For more than 30 years, the cooks at Vitale's Italian Cuisine have served up authentic Sicilian fare made from imported pastas, sauces built from scratch, and fresh Italian bread. Jaws warm up after yearlong vows of silence by chewing through calamari and deep-fried mushrooms before delving into patron-beloved spinach rotolo composed of three baked pasta wheels rolled with cheese and spinach. In the kitchen, meat entrees such as chicken parmigiana are prepared by chefs locally renowned for their artful use of chicken and seafood. Cooks roll out slabs of pizza dough to meet diners' extra-thin or stuffed-crust specifications, then invite green peppers, sausage, or sun-dried tomatoes to mingle on its bubbly golden surface. A full bar pours beer, liquor, and 30 wines culled from vineyards across a 4th-grade classroom's globe.
