Have you noticed that Italian food is everywhere these days? Americans always love our Italian but it’s definitely having a moment. So we should all be primed for Cafe Lago’s “quattro menu,” a special HH menu that celebrates the restaurant’s 20th anniversary.

Now through October at the Montlake cafe, some things cost four dollars, provided you order them between the hours of 5 to 7pm, Monday through Thursday. These things include house red and white wines, well drinks, and bottled beer. A platter of crostini, gnocchi alla bava (fontina oozes out of the gnocchi when it’s heated, gooing things up considerably), zucchini salad, and a little pizza are all $4. An espresso and biscotti are also $4.

Guess how much a half-size antipasto platter costs? Did you say $4? Wrong! I tricked you. It’s $8. But you get the picture. Fun chance to try a standard-setting Seattle Italian restaurant on the cheap.
