What You'll Get
Like a tongue on a flagpole in February, fusion cuisine results from curiosity and a shortage of popsicles. Rein in restless taste buds with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Greek and Italian Fare at Yanni's Grill & Vineyard. Choose between the restaurant's two locations:
- Altoona: 3160 8th Street Southwest
- Ankeny: 410 S. Ankeny Boulevard
The culinary fusionists at Yanni's Grill & Vineyards meld vivacious flavors of Greek and Italian cuisine in cozy rooms adorned with murals and sparkly white lights. Peruse a bilingual dinner menu, and untangle hunger pains over uncomplicated plates of buttery garlic knots ($3.95/10 pieces). Sip carafes of wine while servers engage in culinary pyrotechnics with flaming plates of signature saganaki ($5.95). Yanni's signature penne careens down throat canals, gliding along thanks to a tomato-cream sauce and accompanied by sidecars of sweet peas, mushrooms, and ham ($12.95). The chef's coastal lineup of fresh fish ($15.95–$17.95) tempts seafaring folks, who may jump back on shore at the sight of the signature steak Deburgo and its 10-ounce crown of beef medallions bejeweled in wine, mushroom, and basil sauce.
Scenic murals and dangling plants adorn Yanni's dining rooms, where quaint, arched doorways lead guests to a culinary collage of Mediterranean flavors. Recline beneath the soft glow of italian lights while debating the timeless controversy of whether the chicken arrived before the tortoise or the hare.
