All menu items at Lavagna are prepared from scratch, including our pasta. The menu changes weekly as well as seasonally so it can feature only the freshest local ingredients. Lavagna is expanding the house-made charcuterie program and is adding a line of house-made local preserves, with offerings varying week to week. Lavagna also offers a variety of Italian wines, beers from around the world and distinctive craft cocktails.

"This is one of my friend's favorites in the area and is also a scratch kitchen- so maybe my expectations were too high but I thought the food was so-so. My eggs were not cooked correctly, I ordered them poached and they came out in "puddle like form." Also the sausage and potatoes were sort of bland- we had to ask 3 times for condiments to go with the potatoes and toast. Also the service was very slow- I am glad we didn't opt for the bottomless mimosas because we probably would have only gotten (1) the entire 90 minutes that we were there... our server was definitely either slammed or preoccupied because we saw her when she took the order and brought the check and that was about it. Overall though it was cute place and great location!"

Rasika is a modern Indian Cuisine restaurant showcasing Tawa (Griddle), Sigri (open Barbeque), Tandoori and regional dishes.<br />We have a temperature controlled wine cellar, offer small plates and a modern lounge.

"I'm so sad by how disappointing this experience was because we literally had been waiting for MONTHS to come here and it took forever to reservation.The food was fine- it wasn't anything special..I felt like the menu was designed for people who never actually eat Indian food. I think the spices/quality of flavor at Ravi Kabob is just as good- so for the price not so worth it. Which is fine, you often go out for a nice evening and pay much more than it's "worth" but they make up for it in the experience- unfortunately this was not the case here. The waitress was rude and snobby and was useless in terms of recommendations- her answer to everything was "well it depends what you like". I honestly don't think I will ever go back."
