    My date suffered an outdoor table, and it being a lovely evening, I agree. However, the constant din of Harleys, Muscle cars, Slingshots, and blasting music from street traffic was anything but peaceful, let alone romantic. The restaurant can’t police street traffic, I get it. But honestly, I would not eat outdoors there ever again. ‘ Our server was fine, but did not project much interest or energy in our dining experience. The food was generally tasty, though my cream sauce was on the heavy and salty side. Portions are good, but prices for what I would call mid to mid upper level pasta, seemed quite high.

    Lago is a lovely restaurant. We first sat outside but it got chilly and we asked to sit inside. Our waiter chose just the right table for us. The food was delicious. Their main dishes are quite pricey but there are lots of things on the menu (appetizers, salads, pizza) for less, so there is something for everyone. They have plenty of wait staff and we observed great service at the other tables.

    When we arrived, we were told that there was no pizza and no calamari. I understand it’s a busy weekend, but no pizza? That seemed crazy. So we ordered some appetizers, and it took forever for them to come out. We had barely started on the appetizers, and then the meals came right out after, not even giving us enough time to enjoy the appetizers. That being said, the stuffed peppers were very good. The wedding soup was good as well. But the main course — very, very, very salty. We told the server that the scallops were so salty, and they did nothing to make it right. Almost $50 for them, and we only ate half of them because we each tried one, and they were just way too salty to eat. It seemed very odd, since they were supposed to be in a sage brown butter sauce. And the pappardelle that came with them was basically just buttered noodles.The chicken parmesan was slightly better, but I found the breading to be salty too and the red sauce to be very bland, just like tomato sauce with very little taste… and a three dollar up charge for rigatoni over fettuccine? Again, strange. We love Italian food, but we would not make a return trip to Lago. But maybe they were just having an off weekend.

    My group and I were celebrating graduation. I asked the host to sit outside as we would wait for a table The host was not thrilled to accommodate or really talk to us in any way. We sat at the bar for a drink where the bartender barely acknowledged us as well. I bartend as well and I felt uncomfortable sitting there if I was a burden. The restaurant was not overly packed by any means. Service was short and bland. We were very excited for this experience but disappointed.

    I will give Lago East Bank another go but was a bit disappointed in our first experience. The staff was very disjointed/disorganized when entering to be seated. It did seem like they were over their heads based on number of reservations? We had a lovely server though - she was knowledgeable of menu and helpful with selections. Hubbies food came out five minutes before the rest of the family's (and it was Mother's Day?)? In addition, it felt like we were being rushed more than we should have that day. I will give them the benefit of the doubt though as restaurants are still try to staff up since COVID. Opportunities for Lago - we were seated in booth and it was quite dark, maybe add candles to improve the ambience. Makes such a huge difference. Treat every customer like it is their first time. Would be a special treat if you offered moms a complimentary sparkling wine with their brunch. :).

    Been wanting to add Lago to list for a while but was honestly a little underwhelmed. The bread and arancini were highlights but the pasta dishes we had were uninspired (way too much sauce-like soup). Good staff both hostesses and our waitress. With so many great Italian options in greater Cleveland we won't be back.

    Pricey, but so good - Sauce was robust and plentiful, marvelous tomato flavor, thick and with just a hint of sweetness. And in any Italian restaurant, the sauce sets the standard for the remaining dishes. And we were not disappointed. Went for a special occasion, we will be back for the suace..

    We went for Easter brunch. Our server was wonderful. But our food was barely warm and flavor was just ok. The best thing we felt we had were the potatoes. We felt that it was not worth the $200 we spent. For two adults and 2 kids brunch.

    We were really disappointed in our experience at Lago, especially since we’ve enjoyed dining there in past years. Unfortunately it seems the service and food quality have drastically gone downhill. While our server was kind, she was very inexperienced and had to be asked 3-4 times for anything, such as knives to cut our food, bread, etc. Even then only sometimes then did she bring them. We ordered a $170 bottle of wine, which we had to specifically request to be decanted. Our server brought the decanter, poured the wine and immediately went to pour the wine into our glasses - understandable but when your total check is $550+, you expect a certain level of service. Our food was undercooked, including pasta so “Al dente” that it had to be cut with a knife. Again - the value just isn’t there for what’s being charged. Finally, when the manager came to ask how the meal was, we let him know some of our concerns. The mark of good service is not just getting it right the first time, but finding ways to make it right for customers when things don’t go well. The manager was also clearly inexperienced in doing so. We won’t be back.

    Excellent staff and excellent food. Meal was well composed, delicious, and timely, and what I'd expect for what I paid. We went there for my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint. My only complaint was with the valet parking company - they literally forgot about us when we claimed our car - so we stood out in the cold for 20 minutes waiting before I was stunned to hear they'd just dropped the ball and left our keys on their desk. Took another 10 to get the car out of the garage. But that had nothing to do with Lago itself. Again, the food was awesome and our server was attentive and outstanding. 5 stars!

    Lago East BankResponded on April 12, 2022Thanks for the great review, Rick! We are glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves. We will make sure to discuss the valet with that company and make sure this is not an issue that happens again. We look forward to having you back!
