Italian cafe Lagotto opened as a daytime eatery in early 2019, and is now open for dinner service.
As of Wednesday January 15, the North Fitzroy spot will kick off Lagotto Nights – opening from 5pm until late from Wednesday to Saturday. The extended menu includes burrata with agrodolce (sweet and sour) peppers and almonds, porcini-and-pecorino arancini and hand-rolled pastas such as saffron linguini with crab, chilli and lemon.
Lagotto’s version is crumbed confit pork belly, sandwiched between discs of pillowy white bread with roasted tomato-balsamic aioli and finely sliced fennel.
To drink: $5 Peroni Red cans and $10 Lagotto Spritzes with Applewood limoncello, prosecco and lemon thyme.
From 5pm to late Wednesday to Saturday.
