The time-tested Italian dishes populating Avezzano Ristorante’s menu span generations, having been passed down throughout the years, according to metroWNY. Prelude feasts with plates of jalapeño ravioli ($6.95), whose breaded-and-fried shells are drizzled in a rich red-pepper coulis. Sautéed with fresh mushrooms and herbs, succulent cuts of chicken ($14.95) or veal ($18.95) sail down tongues on the surging currents of a marsala-wine demi-glace. Sage-brown-butter sauce buoys pan-roasted cod filets ($18.95) sheathed in a thick almond crust designed to fend off oceanic predators and plastic silverware. Crown sated bellies with one of eight decadent meal closers, such as a pillowy cream puff ($4.95) or a slice of peanut-butter pie ($5.95).
At New Trendz Salon, the team expertly preps hair for special events. Sometimes, they go about it by custom cutting and coloring manes, or curling locks up into elaborate bouffants. However, they can also go about it by waxing off unwanted stubble, a process they handle as painlessly as possible whether they're administering a Brazilian or a back wax. The team can also enhance faces with custom-blended makeup or European facials, which nourish skin more effectively than just holding an ice pack to your cheek.

Francesca's Ristorante Italiano's eggplant fra diablo won Taste of Buffalo's 2012 Pat Sardina Memorial award for Best Comfort Food, and the lemon strawberry sorbet won Taste of Buffalo's award for 2013 Independent Health Foundation's Healthy Options, but those aren't the only items on the eatery's menu that could have qualified. Other dishes with sumptuous, rich flavors include the eatery's rustic Italian pizzas, which chefs paint with a signature red-wine sauce or garlic-cream-cheese spread, as well as the osso buco with tender, slow-cooked beef shank and oyster mushrooms packed into ravioli. While navigating forks through tubes of housemade manicotti stuffed with ricotta cheese, patrons can enjoy the melodies of occasional live music or launch paper airplanes off the outdoor patio. Dark wood accentuates the fully stocked bar, replete with wine, beer, and cocktail makings.
