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.
