Lavagna opened its doors on February 1st, 1999, and has been a downtown favorite ever since. Set in the heart of Alphabet City, in the East Village, Lavagna offers traditional Italian trattoria fare,with affordable prices, in a casual, lively, intimate atmosphere. The vibe is candlelit, cozy, with an open kitchen, an old wood burning oven, exposed brick walls, a pressed tin ceiling and a small wine bar where the full dinner menu is also offered. A wall of French doors swing open in the warmer weather to a seasonal sidewalk cafe of 20 seats.

Our philosophy in the kitchen is to create good, simple Italian food, using fresh, seasonal ingredients and product of the best quality. The menu highlights include homemade pastas, a wood oven roasted fish for two, roast pork chop, baby rack of lamb and of course the rigatoni with sweet and spicy sausage that has become a classic over the years.
We offer a 3 course $ 32 per person prix fixe dinner every night of the week from opening until 7pm, with choices from our regular menu.

Lavagna’s wine list has been a yearly recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 2002. We focus on lesser known, small production wines form cutting edge producers from all regions of Italy. The list has grown over the years to one of the largest selections of Italian wines in the city, with approximately 300 selections, including many hard to find wines from classic vintages.It is complemented by a few domestic and international selections from Austria, Slovenia, Argentina, Spain, France and Greece.

Our bar features a small and eclectic selection of liquors, including small batch bourbons and ryes, single malts, handcrafted grappe, amari and digestivi.

We recommend reservations, especially for weekend nights, but we also allow tables for walk ins.
