Ok, I love lavagna. It fits my bill in oh so many ways (the friendly staff, the boisterous atmosphere, the delectable food...ahh the stewed calamari).
I am looking for another place like it. To spread my culinary wings. The food can be different, the size can be bigger...but I am looking for the same feel (great food, great times, non-pretentious).
Downtown please (EV, gramercy, LES, WV, whatever).
