International Dining in DC: Lavagna

539 8th St.  SE
Washington DC

Friday night, reservations made for six people at a local eatery in Eastern Market/Barracks Row right off of Penn Ave.  We were all starving and ready for some food, the restaurant was packed but we had our table in the back ready for us.  The lay out was simple nothing fancy simple bar and large up stairs, private dining area in the rear of the dining room, great for party's because it looks out onto the rest of the dining area.  

The staff was a little late at getting our drinks and an appetizer.  which took for ever to get to the table.. or was it because we were SOOO hungry! Anyways starting off with Charcuterie with house cured meats and cheeses, very delicious, we all loved the mustard!!  actually asked for MORE!

The food came and went to fast!  we each all took bites of every ones plates and we were astonished to find out that this chef knows how to cook, how can this little restaurant go unnoticed and I've never heard of it!  Some of the best Italian food I have ever had.

I give Lavagna 4 out of 5 stars ****
