About Lavagna - Washington DC

Lavagna is a neighborhood gathering place where you'll always find delicious food & the best of company.

The beautiful, Genoan village of Lavagna has long been known for its abundant slate production, quarried in the Capenardo and S. Giacomo mountains nearby. Over the years, "Lavagna" became synonymous with "chalkboard".

The menu at Lavagna portrays our idea that food should be just like a chalkboard: simple, fresh, and innovated often.

Lavagna relies on a network of trusted local farmers for the ingredients that form the basis of our simple, contemporary Italian dishes. Our ever-changing menu reflects the best that the season has to offer.

Voted Best Italian in the 2015 AND 2016 AND 2017 Best of DC Washington City Paper Reader's Poll!
