D'Avolio, the oil-and-vinegar specialist in the former Butterwood building (5409 Main St., Williamsville, 810-9354), has launched a menu of fresh Italian salads, sandwiches, antipasti and "authentic Roman style" pizza. Samples will be available at an open house tomorrow at 5 p.m. Their menu is here (PDF).
The kitchen draws on many of the in-house ingredients for sale in the store, said Vince McConeghy, a consultant helping owner Dan Gagliardo add the quick-service restaurant. Order a salad ($9.25) or an antipasto ($9.50) and you can mix your own dressing from the store's stock of oils, vinegars and more, he said.
The pizza ($9.75) is a square foot of dough made from 00 Italian flour, baked in a pan. "It's after a pizza style you'd see in Rome," he said. "It's very airy, but thin and crisp," he said. In Williamsville, it's topped to the customer's whim, including D'Avolio products like feta-stuffed olives.
