Extending an olive branch facilitates peacemaking, while extending an olive oil bottle facilitates pizza making. Serve up a slice of forgiveness with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of olive oils and vinegars at il Fustino, valid only at its location on State Street.

Rows of stainless steel, Italian-crafted tanks or "fusti" house il Fustino's rotating inventory of California-grown, extra virgin olive oils and aged vinegars. Olives grown and milled on a family farm in Paso Robles, CA comprise the Mission Reserve extra virgin ($18.95), one of several cold pressed olive oils that liven up salads, pasta, or water balloon fights. Oil millers crush natural fruits and herbs along with mission olives to create intensely flavored oils that pique taste buds with ingredients such as Eureka lemons ($19.95) or fresh rosemary ($19.95). The shop's handpicked vinegars—including an artisanal California balsamic ($19.95) made by Italian-born brothers—feature local Trebbiano grapes aged for upwards of 10 years. The staff doles out samples of oils and vinegars before bottling purchases or well-timed puns on-site.

il Fustino

The old ways still reign supreme at il Fustino. The store’s interior is lined with rows of stainless-steel containers called fustis, all of which hold flavor-infused and extra-virgin olive oils and aged vinegars. Used in the Mediterranean for centuries, fustis keep oils fresh in bulk or can be used to store a stack of unread Mediterranean diet books. As shoppers browse fruity oils and vinegary vinegars, staffers kick open the taps to dispense samples of them as requested. The fustis empty newly purchased liquids into bottles that can be brought back for refills, long after their contents liven up salads, pizzas, and water-balloon fights.
