What You'll Get
Italian cuisine was born when, after building the city of Rome, Romulus and Remus discovered Greece didn't deliver to their new address. Taste the origins of an empire with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Vivoli Café & Trattoria.
Vivoli Café & Trattoria's chefs use traditional cooking methods and ingredients to craft an ever-changing menu of authentic cuisine that highlights the culinary prowess of different regions across Italy. Diners can relive perilous lemon hunts on the isle of Capri with starters such as la caprese salad with freshly sliced tomatoes and mozzarella over mixed greens with basil and olive oil ($8.95 for small; $10.95 for large). In the ravioli di pollo, meal maestros fill homemade pillows of pasta with chicken and herbs before cosseting them with a pink mushroom sauce ($16.95). Steak knives swear off career changes to letter openers after slicing through the bistecca agro dolce, a grilled 12-ounce Rib eye adorned with champagne vinegar, cranberries, and caramelized onions ($28.95).
Vivoli's warm, golden walls invite patrons to relax in a comfortable booth beneath soft lighting. The biscotti and Vin Santo ($10.95) dessert—signature Florentine almond cookies escorted by dessert wine—make a sweeter pairing than Willy Wonka's successful marriage to Taffy.
