Groupon and Teambuy - Misleading Restaurant Deal

Tappo Wine Bar and Restaurant – Downtown Toronto
C$55 for Three-Course Italian Meal for Two (Up to $130 Value)
  • One à la carte antipasti (up to an $18 value)
  • One à la carte primi piatti (up to a $32 value)
  • Two à la carte secondi piatti (up to a $40 value each)
First of all, can you really call it a "Three-Course" meal for two, when the first two courses are effectively half-courses because you have to share them???

Secondly, it may be a theoretical $130 value, but only if you optimize by choosing the $18 antipasti, $32 primi piatti, and 2x the $40 secondi piatti. But that may not always be feasible (for example, the $32 primi contains shellfish). If for some reason you wound up ordering the cheapest item off each of the antipasti, primi, and secondi menus, that's only respectively $10 + $17 + ($28 x 2) = $83.


Looks like Teambuy is running the same deal.
