Last month, the 8th Street corridor welcomed Lavagna to the family. The beautifully enticing taste of Italy serves all fresh fare that is fresh and robust.
Right near Barracks Row, Lavagna offers indoor seating with beautiful dark wood and exposed brick, as well as outdoor dining. The bar, located upstairs, is very inviting and sets the mood for a great venue for conversation and cocktails.
Although there is no happy hour, there are awesome drink specials and wonderful bar menu items. Their specialty cocktails are $9 and join the Italian theme. I recommend Gli Angelia-Basil Margarita and the Rosa Bellini, which are my favorites! Don’t miss out on the bar menu, too! For $5 each, they serve delicious dishes such as polenta w/ tomato sauce, bruschetta, marinated olives, fried gnocchi and more tasty bites. I had the bruschetta and polenta and was very impressed!
They’re running a seated dinner Facebook/Twitter special until September 15 for 25% off, from 4p-6p. You must be seated by 6p and they prefer reservations.
