Agliolio in Wellington Offers Do-It-Yourself Menu
Or at least that's idea at Agliolio. Newly opened in Wellington, the casual, family-friendly pastatorium-slash-wine bar gets its name from the Italian "aglio" (garlic) and "olio" (oil) and features a have-it-your-way menu that allows diners to partner eight kinds of fresh pasta (rigatoni, bucatini, tagliatelle, and angel hair among them) with seven sauces (aglio e olio, pesto, pomodoro and vodka, to name some) and
veggies ranging from broccoli to mushrooms, all for a princely $10.
For a few bucks more, you can add the entrée of your choice, anything from meatballs and grilled chicken (for $4 extra), chicken Francaise and grilled shrimp ($6 more), and veal marsala and salmon (plus $9). There's a bunch more too, but you get the idea. Oh, and there are also a few apps and a decent wine list with more than two dozen wines by the glass, so you can hang onto at least a little bit of that other basic element of human life... money.
