Welcome to Lavagna, a contemporary Italian restaurant named for a city located in the Genoa province of Northern Italy, where the hills are renowned for slate production. 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. We source our ingredients locally, mostly from farms in the surrounding states and make everything in house. Don't miss our home-made pastas and local free range entrees!<br /><br />Voted Best Italian in the 2015 Best of DC Washington City Paper Reader's Poll! <br />

"There were some hiccups in our experience (bizarre table choice -- they sat us at the bar despite having other available tables, slow service, incorrect orders) but the food was tasty and the restaurant took care of us to make sure we knew we were appreciated, despite a few of mishaps. I'll give them another chance."

Our newest location! Reservations are not required. Contact us for large parties or special events. Feel free to contact us regarding our seating policy. Yes, we do serve brunch/lunch on Sunday with a great prix fixe including "The Best French Toast in DC", Steak and Eggs, Eggs Benedict and bottomless bloody Marys, mimosas and screwdrivers. During the evenings, Medium Rare offers a unique, prix fixe dinning experience of artisan bread; a mixed green salad; prime, dry-aged steak; and hand-cut fries in a relaxed, fun, neighborhood environment. As we do only one thing, we do our best to make the food and experience exceptional and also a good value. There are only a carefully selected wines, spirits, and draft beer choices. We offer an off-menu vegetarian option.

"Makes sense that everything there is delicious. With such a small menu, they've perfected the bread (crispy crust and incredibly soft, dewy bread), light and delicious salad dressing, and a fantastic steak and "secret steak sauce" -- everything is delicious. Will definitely return!"
