Sure, we love scoping out fun foodie trends like Korean burritos and hibiscus-flavored foam, but there's something about hundred-year-old family recipes that just can't be beat. Today's deal plates up $30 to spend on food and drink for $15 at Marino's Ristorante Italiano. We love the homey feeling inside this 30-year-old Bellflower favorite. The wallpaper, light fixtures, candlelight, and old family photos evoke early 1900s New York, where owner Tom Marino's family lived when they emigrated from Sicily. But we especially love the food, passed down from Marino's great-great-great grandmother. Get your palate going with the sautéed mushrooms in a garlic butter, caper, parsley, and white wine sauce; then jump into one of Marino's rich Sicilian deep-dish pizzas, homemade lasagna, or the chicken Marsala served over perfectly al dente fettuccine. With today's deal, tomato sauce is definitely thicker than water.
