    I have not been to Lavagna so cannot make a comparison, but I will say that I have really enjoyed dinners at Pepolino, and if you are a gnocchi fan, theirs is a must have.

      We have been to Lavagna many times. At one point they received a Wine Spectator award for their wine list. Menu is limited. Note that it can be loud and lively. More enjoyable on a weeknight, based on our experiences. Have not been back in awhile, last time we went it was too noisy for us.
