Lavo is an Italian clubstaurant on the Sunset Strip that was gifted to us from the mecca of clubstaurants, Las Vegas. But here’s the catch—in the desert, places like Lavo work because everyone’s on a debaucherous vacation and eating an expensive meal while dancing on a table is somewhat expected. On the Sunset Strip, Lavo isn’t anything close to a clubstaurant. It’s just a big boring restaurant with aggressively mediocre food, generic decor, and a crowd made up of duped tourists and locals who don’t know better. If you’re looking for a rowdy dinner in LA—or eating anything close to passable pasta—do yourself a favor and head elsewhere.
