This was an anniversary for my husband and I. Would have preferred a booth. Put was placed at a table. I did ask for a booth when I sent in my reservation. Other than that everything was perfect.

This was our first time at
This was our first time at Il Bel Lago as we were just passing through town, visiting relatives. Because we have dietary issues, we often find problems with menus but Bel Lago was able to accommodate our requests and served us both delicious pasta dishes. The waiter was very attentive but did not hover and was able to get us fed and on our way quickly, as we requested. We would definitely return here when coming through St. Louis again.

Great for special occasions
This restaurant is definitely for a special occasion. All the appetizers, salads, side dishes are a la carte but well worth the money.
Too pricey to just "drop in" on a week night (at least for most of us). The service was a little slow but acceptable. Friendly greeters and staff and not snobby. I would highly recommend this restaurant. (good HOMEMADE desserts too!!(

Very inviting place for a special occasion. Great food and the service was very good. Welcoming atmosphere which allowed for a relaxing, unrushed evening. Will recommend to friends.

We had a dinner for 21 people which we arranged via open table, email and phone since we live in Florida and restaurant is in St. Louis, MO. Everything went beautifully. When we arrived the private rooms was all set for all our guests, the service was wonderful and the food exceptionally good. It was a great success all around.

Had dinner Saturday at this wonderful restaurant.
The food was excellent.
The service was well paced.
The patio was outstanding.
They have a beautiful fountain in middle of patio.
I did not feel I was in St.Louis I felt I was on

Outstanding in every aspect
Thanks for a wonderful evening, the food and service on Saturday night were over the top.
We are looking forward to our next dinner at Bel Lago.

Glad we finally tried it!
The reviews we read were glowing, and they were right. We liked everything about our visit - great food and service, and it was really pleasant to eat outside on the patio. Risotto was excellent. I have only had risotto this good twice - once in SF and the other time in Milan. I always feel like I am "rolling the dice" whenever I order risotto as few places seem to know how to make it properly. This place does, and I look forward to coming back for more. I'm not sure why it took me so many years to try this restaurant, but I am glad that I did. We hope to return soon.

Like a newer pair of old shoes
Service was friendly albeit a little slow once the restaurant was full. The large patio is well-shaded and very pleasant on a summer evening. The traditional Italian menu and the vocalist performing old standards was comfortable, probably most appealing to an older demographic, which is what we saw in attendance.

I went on a Monday night. The place was half full, but my fiance and I felt as though we were the only ones there. Great service. Great food. I tell my friends to go there. I had lamb chops and they were the best that I have had anywhere.

We really enjoyed our experience and the interaction with the staff. The food was delicious - I highly recommend the President Reagan Bow Tie pasta! They had live music playing outside but we were glad they didn't have it inside as we wanted to enjoy a quiet dinner. It was nice to have an option of where to sit.

Hard to find, because the sign is backlit instead of lit. Great service and food. No one knows this place is here, so great for a date. Overpriced for quality/quantity of food, but your paying for privacy.

My second visit. The food and service is exceptional.
My wife and I needed a place to relax.
With 6 kids we need to get away every once in
A while. Bel Lago offers the ambiance to
relax and enjoy your spouse.

Must try for lunch
This is a great place for a business lunch. The food is very good, the ambience is one of the best around. Only complaint I had was the service needs to be a bit quicker for lunch. Overall though, a must try.

A cut above the rest
Absolutely, positively the very best lunch place in the bi-state area. And no more expensive than many of your very average lunch places. Food made fresh with real ingredients - al dente pasta - extraordinary, healthy dishes. Fabulous. I love it.

Italy from the Hill
Service was excellent . The food was very good. I would recommend IL Bel Lago to any of my friends that appreciate good Italian food.

A special dinner
Superb preparation and excellent flavors. The best Caesar salad in town.

Everything was wonderful!
Everything was wonderful! This was our first time there because we live in Tennessee. We do visit St. Louis often and will definitely go back. The President Reagan pasta and the Carbonara were so delicious. The service was outstanding!

Can't say enough good things
Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. We've been here several times and have never been disappointed. From the service, the wine, the food, etc., everything was great. This has to be one of the top restaurants in St. Louis.

My favorite place to dine!
I always enjoy visiting IL Bel Lago as the atmosphere is pleasant and comfortable, the service excellent and the food outstanding. Everyone is so friendly and responsive to any special requests. If you haven't been to IL Bel Lago , you really should give it a try.

We hadn't dined at Il Bel Ago for a while and decided it more for convenience sake. We were blown away how good it was! We ordered the special, some slow cooked bone-in pork and vegatable dish which has a name I don't remember. But it was delicious. The waiter was charming and professional. Atmosphere was quiet except for the cheesy Happy hour 2 piece band, beloved by a couple girls-night-out tables
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reagan's pasta was excellent as was the grilled salmon. The service was outstanding and the prices were reasonable.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply outstanding, we've been here several times and never anything but a great experience. They were busy on a Saturday night yet it was quiet. Live music in the bar is nice. We really like the decor here as well. It's not cheap, but well worth it. Regardless of personal tastes, you would have to put Bel Lago in the top five in the city. No place is better.

When we arrived, our group of 6 was not rushed to a table but allowed to have a drink in the bar and be seated whenever we were ready. Our server Tom provided some recommendations and the food was excellent. I had the sea bass which was prepared just right. After dinner, we enjoyed a couple of drinks in the bar and were entertained with the kareoke which ranged from great to a cow in labor. As an added bonus, HOF Jackie Smith sang a few songs. We will definitely go back.
