Marathoners have perfected the art of carbo-loading, but the pleasure of packing in pasta needn't be reserved for elite athletes alone. Make a run for today's deal from Antonio's Ristorante in East Haven to get in on the action: Fork over $25 for $50 worth of food and drink. Owned by the Colavolpe family and decorated with family photos, this quaint restro on Main Street is as comforting as its old-world, Neapolitan fare. Build up your glycogen reserves with baked lasagna, puttanesca, or penne alla vodka with lobster, caramelized onions, fresh basil and garlic. Race through a plate of swordfish Portofino with olives, capers, and basil in a light marinara sauce -- or veal piccata and eggplant stuffed with ricotta. But, be sure to pace yourself -- you wouldn't want to miss out on an anginette cookie for dessert.
