Great staff that made you
Great staff that made you feel welcome. The food was good - I'd go back - but it's not the world's greatest Italian. Overall, Club Lago is a nice spot for dinner that's far enough away from the chaos of Michigan Avenue, yet close enough to walk to.

Great neighborhood find!
I can't believe I've lived within walking distance of this restaurant for three years and never made it over! The food is awesome! It's old school Italian with friendly service, great food and fun, simple decor. If you've ever been to Club Lucky, the decor feels similar, but Club Lago is a little more casual.
We had the antipasto, eggplant parmesan, chicken parmesan and chicken marsala. We also had a side of meatballs and sautéed spinach. All of us loved our meal and the price is crazy reasonable!

Club Lago has amazing pasta! The spaghetti with meatballs is exactly what you are looking for and satisfies your homemade cravings. The ambiance is super casual and friendly and the service is outstanding. The prices are very affordable. It's a must-visit place in downtown for great pasta without the pretension.

Fun Owner. Fun Stuff. Fun Night.
The owner went above and beyond during an extremely busy night to fulfill the Open Table reservation and gave us special seating even though he had to contend with half his space being used by a private wedding reception. Other places may have cancelled our reservation but instead we were warmly greeted and accomodated with great, fun service. We even got wedding cake and were welcomed by the wedding reception guests because we were pretty much seated within the wedding party. Others may have been annoyed by the seating location but in this small, neighborhood spot, where the food is worth whatever the seating arrangement, we were happy to crash a wedding reception so that we could have the great food.

Great "Chicago" Restaurant
If you want the feel of "Chicago" and what it might have been like on old time Chicago, Club Lago is the place for you. A small restaurant with very friendly and informal staff and old style decor makes this place a favorite of mine. The food is reasonably priced and well done, but not fancy. Just old style Italian that is always reliable. I have been going here for years and never tire of it.

Great Chicago classic Italian
Good food and reasonable prices, and not fancy. I would definitely recommend Club Lago to anyone looking for a friendly neighborhood Italian restaturant. Guido and GianCarlo run a great place.
