Lago is always a great time. I wish they would bring their entire brunch menu back, but over all I love lago
The food was very good. The service was helpful and polite but I had to ask for refills of water and felt not fully attended on. We sat outside and the noise level from cars driving by was very loud. Overall I would go again but prefer to sit indoors.
In the middle of crazy Covid, everything felt safe & clean and the food was fantastic!
It was cool. Not my first time so I’m used to it.
I felt it was dark in the restaurant area. They had a DJ somewhat loud where we were seated. Had three pasta dishes & two of them very salty. No bread at table & no happy hour on liquor. Twenty six dollars for two spritzers & very little VODKA! it was my daughter birthday so we were disappointed.

Great time on the patio
Our server was very attentive and our food was amazing!! I was not a fan of the clientele that evening, as it ruined the ambiance feeling, especially with such high prices. It was a very urban party type scene with people walking all around and many “holding” their masks near their face while walking past us
Meeting with a bride
It was our first time there and service from Mittens was wonderful and our meal was delicious
Thanks so much for the positive review, Joan. We will make sure to pass the compliments along to Mittens.
Great experience! I would definitely go back. Maintained safety protocols.
Thanks so much for the positive review, Amanda. We have been working very hard to make sure we follow all of the guidelines so we are glad to hear it has been noticed. We look forward to having you back again soon.
Considering the current situation with Covid, the restaurant was prepared.
Great spot in an even better location! Food was amazing and our waitress was very kind and personable. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you, Lydia! We are glad to hear you enjoyed yourself and look forward to having you back!
Wonderful 1st time experience the ambience over all was wonderful, however it was a little too dark for dinner as it was difficult to read the menu; the waitress was very nice and extremely attentive she made suggestions from the menu. The food was very delicious and other staff were also very helpful and attentive.
I can only do a partial review of this restaurant, as we didn't actually end up eating here. We booked our wedding anniversary dinner for a Sunday at 6:00 pm. From looking at the menu (and prices) online, I assumed it would be an upscale Italian dining experience. It wasn't. As we walked up the street toward restaurant, I heard blaring music from speakers on patio, and I was dismayed to realize that was coming from Lago. We were seated immediately, and taken to a plain, almost "cafeteria" like table, no tablecloth, nothing. Our neighbors were all wearing tank tops, shorts, and weren't eating, just drinking. My hubby and I strongly considered leaving at this point, but were pretty hungry...then, within five minutes of being seated, a fight broke out in the restaurant between employees and someone from the street. We left, and went to Luca (our regular Italian go-to) and had a lovely, elegant meal, with no screaming, no blaring music, and no fights. I will say, however, that the manager did call me about an hour after we left and apologized profusely. He said this sort of thing never happens, and asked us to give Lago another chance. He took my information, and said he would send a gift card for us to try again. If that happens, I will give it another try (the menu looked yummy), but maybe a weekday lunch, when they don't have a DJ and less likelihood of any altercations!
Amazing staff and outstanding food and service! Absolutely Love this place and I highly recommend checking out Lago!! Fantastico
All the food ordered was great!!
The tortellini was amazing, I would highly recommend ordering that entree. The desserts were simple and delicious. The service was impeccable!! Natalie was our server and she didn't miss a beat. From the beginning her attentiveness was very much recognized. We ordered wine, apps and entrees at the same time and it all was timed out perfectly. She knew when to stop and check on us, and everytime I looked over she was making sure our glasses were filled back up with vino. We didn't pour on once of wine in our glasses. Next time we come to visit Lago I will be sure to request Natalie!!
The staff were amazing and the food was delicious!
Food was great. Exactly what we wanted. Service seemed spot on for everyone around us, but our waitress was sub par. The area was really cool, great little place for dinner. We would return.
Excellent food & vibes. The lobster gnocchi was incredible and the watermelon spritzer was the freshest cocktail I have ever had!
People crowding around the bar without masks and no social distancing.
Our first experience at Lago was amazing. The food, the service and the overall ambiance will bring us back!
The food and service were great. Not so much social distancing and masks were not worn properly. Some employees did not wear masks
The lobster gnocci was out of this world, along with the cavatelli, which has a pesto type cream sauce and fresh tomatoes. We tried the cauliflower appetizer for the first time and that was delish. My only tiny complaint was the shrimp scampi w/linguine was dry. They did make more sauce, which made a significant difference. All in all, one of our favorite places to dine.
Had to ask for a waitress. Ravioli had celery on it-never seen this. Not good. Asked for no onions on the carpaccio-didn’t deliver. Ambiance has become more raucous and noisy. Good for partying but not a nice dinner.
The service was great but the reservation was for almost 3:00 and the brunch menu was available. Only breakfast options when we were wanting more lunch options. We didn’t want eggs and toast at 3pm
Incredible meal with outstanding service from Win. Perfect place to celebrate a birthday
They have done a great job adapting to social distancing, and made everyone feel very comfortable and safe. The server was great. He made some excellent recommendations and was very attentive. The food came out hot and was delicious.
First time in Cleveland and Lago. Restaurant in The Flats, great vibe with patrons just out having a relaxed Saturday night. Cocktails were creative, especially the Princess Peach. Don’t let the name fool you...Cognac is the base! Fare billed as Italian...and it fits. The Waygu Beef Carpaccio was amazing as was the homemade Italian Wedding Soup. Fresh pasta in-house and rustic pizzas...be as creative as you like. Small but very well-curated wine list. Must say what tied it all together for a top rating was our server, Win. His enthusiasm and great desire to make sure we had an outstanding experience was gratefully appreciated. Fun all around. Best dining experience we had in Cleveland. We’ll be back!!
Everything was fantastic. Im not gonna detail the food but all 8 things we ordered were great.
Always a great dinner and experience at Lago. No matter if it's in normal times, or in strange times like now when everything has to be spaced far apart, the place has the same cool, chill and romantic vibe.
Great atmosphere, great food and great service! Cheese platter and lobster gnocchis are 5 stars😍
I was so incredibly disappointed. When I booked this table, I was under the impression that they would follow the social distancing order in place and we would be provided a safe environment for me and my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday dinner. I was very wrong. The servers were polite, wearing masks and following what seemed to be good procedure. However, management allowed the outside patio (where we booked dinner reservations) to get out of control. There were an incredible amount of people allowed to stand in between the reserved tables getting drunk and out of control. One of the bar guests even had the nerve to put their drink on our table while we were sitting there. We were disgusted and left after having one glass of wine. I ended up ordering food from another restaurant to be delivered to me. I have supported this restaurant MANY times by ordering during quarantine but will never return. Worst experience I’ve ever had. It’s a shame because many other restaurants in the area have provided safe opportunities for guests to return to dining. It’s clear that profit and the bottom line is more important than the public’s safety.
Awful. No social distancing. No tables. No order. Sat inside - next to jack hammering tiles off floor. This was a scene from “Girls gone wild.”
My moms 83rd birthday was wonderful there
First visit for six adults. All enjoyed and will consider returning. Music volume was adjusted when requested. Every one pleased.
Our food was excellent. Our waiter was very helpful. Met the GM who was very friendly and spent time with us. Got very busy and louder later with a DJ. Very fun place!
Food was sub par and atmosphere was nothing special
Excellent food and service.
Excellent and friendly service, amazing food and cocktails, great atmosphere.
