Club Lago Restaurant
Third generation owners GianCarlo and Guido are pouring the wine or serving the veal--it's a family affair. Time warp back to the fifties with a glass of chianti in a plush booth in the bar or hold court at one of the tables in the back; Club Lago's ideal for the first date, a meal before the theater or a game, or whenever you're looking to relax to great food and be a regular in a family joint.
Some call it "retro," we call it home. Benvenuti, come on in!
Great food and attentive service. If you are looking for authentic Italian, would highly recommend
Enjoyed the wonderful food in the warmth of a traditional Italian restaurant.
First time at this local Italian restaurant I have to say it was delicious their homemade meat sauce is a must try.
After living in Chicago 45 years I finally dined at Club Lago. No need to go back; pretty average Italian food that I thought was overpriced. Maybe it has sentimental something for others. Not me.
Food was decent for the price. Staff were friendly. Ambiance was lacking a little and crowded space. Women’s bathroom had issue with sink.
Always excellent! The food is wonderful, the service is great, and such a terrific atmosphere. Perfect.
We made a reservation but they were not serving food at the time so did not get to eat there.
We love trying to accommodate late arrivals, but by the time you arrived, our kitchen had closed. Next time, we'd love to seat you at your reservation time!
The food was good. Our server was nice. There weren’t that many cocktail options, although they did have a good list of wines. It was perfect for a get together to chat among family or friends.
Veal parmigiana excellent! Green noodles and sausage had lukewarm sausage, flavorless with very mushy noodles. Server was great. Busman was very attentive. The manager took it off the bill so great customer service. They forgot it was fir my husband’s birthday. Delicious cannolis!
The food was fantastic! Had the Veal Parm and Chicken Marsala. They were delicious. Juan Carlos, the server, was professional, charming, and efficient. Club Lago is the quintessential neighborhood bar/restaurant. Owners Guido and Giancarlo know how to operate a warm, friendly, and wonderful establishment.
Delicious meal, friendly service. Looking forward to returning!
Warm atmosphere. Service was excellent. Six people ordered, three liked their meals. I would go again.
Great Italian in an iconic bar
Club Lago is a Chicago treasure pure and simple.
One of my favorite neighborhood staples! Great food, welcoming staff, real Chicago ambiance. Good for a work lunch or a romantic evening.
Great veggie pasta and veal Marsala. Great service. Cool neighborhood joint - locals not touristy.
Nothing says family more than a night at Club Lago. The atmosphere is wonderful and makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in. The food was amazing and the service was even better.
Great restaurant and friendly service. Chicken, eggplant and veal parm are all fantastic.
The waiter was Juan Carlos and he was great. The food exceeded our expectations.
Really great food and service!!!
The food was amazing, flavors, portion size and menu options
Walked by a million times and finally had dinner it was delicious! I’ll be back!
Always a treat. Fabulous fried calamari and veal dishes. Great service in a classic I Taoism setting.
One of our favorites. We visit every time we come to Chicago!
Love the casual but nostalgic atmosphere. Best bolognese in forever. Love the Lago!!!
Great old school Italian restaurant/bar! Would definitely come back.
Had a family dinner
Club Lago is my go to Italian restaurant. It has checkerboard tablecloths and owners name Guido and GianCarlo! If you live in Chicago....check out this restaurant today.
Intimate dining in an relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful outdoor dining too.
Good food, but restaurant needs renovated! Service so so.
Friendly service. Good food. Very pleasant experience.
Great old-school Italian for lunch or dinner; very friendly staff!
Great neighborhood spot for old-school Italian food. Everything was fantastic, including the service.
Delicious food that was worth the price. Quaint little Italian restaurant off the beaten path of tourist-focused dinning near Michigan Avenue. Loved this local joint!
Food was cold, decent at most, we were the only ones there so really no reason for our food to come out cold..
Great atmosphere, delicious Italian food and wine, very friendly staff providing excellent service.
Delicious authentic Italian!!!!! So good!! We will be back!
It was a beautiful summer night to sit on their outdoor patio. The food was delicious, especially the baked clams, and our server Julia was great! Street parking was available across the street which was inexpensive and convenient.
The BEST VEAL in the city!!! Cannoli's are great too, great owners and great prices! love this spot
The food was absolutely incredible. However, our server was not very friendly or personable. Overall, we’ll still be returning for the incredible food.
