We recently visited the newest incarnation of the olive oil boom happening in Buffalo; D’Avolio’s Kitchen in Williamsville. Located in a beautiful brick house on Main Street (some might remember this as being the former location of Butterwood Desserts), D’Avolio has expanded its business to include prepared foods (think pizza, sauces, breads!) and cooking classes.
We chatted with owner Dan Gagliardo who shared with us some of the secrets behind the new kitchen. He disclosed that many of the tried and true recipes being used came from his grandmother. And they have a resident baker who comes into the kitchen during the wee hours to bake fresh breads available daily. We were particularly pleased with their margarita pizza which had such unbelievable flavor we went back for more the next day. And as any chef will tell you, the hallmark of any authentic Italian kitchen is an outstanding margarita pizza! A simple composition with rich, bold flavor.
In addition to their broad array of fresh olive oils and vinegars, D’Avolio Kitchen offers lunch-time foods and prepared foods such as sauces and breads.
D’Avolio Kitchen is located 5409 Main Street in Williamsville, NY. The hours are Monday-Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday 11am-5pm. To learn more about their other locations visit www.davolios.com. You can also follow them on Twitter at @DAvolioKitchen or find them on Facebook.
