    With lots of little shops, churches, and restaurants, take a ride around and just see the area. The people are friendly and will help if you find yourself someplace you didn't mean to be.

    Trattoria Aroma - Yum!

    by Herkbert Updated Mar 30, 2009

    Trattoria Aroma is a wonderful Italian restaurant located in the heart of Williamsville. The food is delicious, the wine selection is awesome and the atmosphere is very comfortable. You'll think you were transported to Tuscany when you walk through the door.

    The food is terrific. The kitchen offers up many choices on the standard menu, plus daily specials to die for. If you can't find something to eat here, then you aren't really hungry.

    Not sure about a wine selection, ask the excellent servers. They will direct you to a terrific wine no matter what your price range. Great Italian wines to go with great Italian food - it just doesn't get much better.

    In our opinion, it is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area.

    Favorite Dish: We always start with an oven fired Pizzetta. A small pizza with a thin crust, carmelized onions, prosciutto, asiago cheese and olive oil. Match it with a nice glass of wine and you have one great appetizer!

    The restaurant is comparable to a French Bistrot. Good food and a good wine list to match up with your food. The restaurant offers a diverse menu with salads, pastas, pizzas, great entrees and Pho. The service staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is great.

    Stop by for lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed.

    Favorite Dish: Craving something decadent? Try the Lobster macaroni and cheese as a side dish. Rich and cheesy with lots of lobster.

    My niece's family owns this chain of submarine sandwich stores. And I can honestly say they make some of the most delicious lunches I have had in a while.

    The bread comes in four flavors and each one is a secret recipe handed down for three generations. The meat is bought fresh daily and sliced on the premises. Each sandwich is hand made after you place your order and to your specifications. There are a dozen varieties of basic sandwiches and any number of combinations of condiments and additives. They even have meals for non-meat eaters.

    The store itself is a long counter on one side and booths and tables on the other side of the entrance way. You make your way down the counter picking and choosing what you want. By the time you get to the cashier and pay for your meal the food server has finished your sandwich requests and has it ready for you to eat.

    You can choose to eat in the 1950s dining area or ask for take-out. You can call ahead if you don't want to wait in the server line. They will even deliver locally for large group orders.

    As is the case in most suburban towns, you will need a car to get around. While there is limited bus service, it does not run all through the town. It is mostly a connection back to Buffalo.

    The main street in Williamsville is Main St. It cuts right through the heart of town and is accessible from Route 290 off the thruway.

    Favorite thing: Williamsville Water Mill at 56 Spring St was originally called the Eclipse Mill. Built by Jonas Williams in 1811 Click Here to see Water Mill pictures

    Fondest memory: Hanging out in Glen Amusement Park before it torn down and turned into what is now Glen Park overlooking the waterfall.
