The basic elements of human life are oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus, garlic, and olive oil.
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.
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.
