Honestly, I was pretty disappointed in this place. I feel like for all that I’ve heard it would have been better. My friend and I had a reservation for 2 at 7:30. We got there at 7:25 and was not given waters until 20 minutes later. Other tables had been sat, brought bread and had their orders taken before we even got our waitress. It was very disappointing, after 30 minutes a woman finally came and asked if we had been waited on yet, which she then took our orders. She was very kind and made the evening a bit better, which is why the service stars aren’t 0. We got our food, and left right after eating. Overall it was okay, but I will most likely not go back. I think it would be a different situation if we were just walk ins, but getting waters from someone passing by after 20 minutes then finally being waited on at 30 minutes after being seated is just kind of inexcusable.

I ordered the rack of lam with the squash and white beans and it was delicious!! They start you off with soft herb bread with oil and balsamic vinegar which was amazingly great! I can’t wait to go back!

Foods delicious + so was the dessert.
It was slightly noisey but that is to be expected on a Saturday night in the flats.

My second time here and was really looking forward to celebrating 26 years together. Waiter was great but the rest wasnt up to the standard we remembered. Food was not worth the price this time around. I will say that the pizza is awesome but you get very little for the money.

I stopped going to Lago after the Cleveland Police towed my car from what was normally a very legal parking spot. Couldn’t wait to get back to have their lobster gnocchi but was disappointed. Although the lobster was cooked appropriately and the sauce was good as usual, the dumplings were doughy. You can tell from their dark appearance that they weren’t the light and perfectly prepared like ones we normally get. Must have been a bad night in the kitchen. Here’s to a better experience next time.

Per the usual, was a great experience at Lago. They were out of a particular wine I like and the server was very knowledgeable in selecting another great bottle with similar characteristics. Food was excellent. Best restaurant in the Flats by far.

Went for brunch on Mother’s Day. Great drinks and service! Food was disappointing. English muffin was not toasted for eggs Benedict or egg sandwich. Poached eggs were broken on Benedict as well. Green salad served with Benedict was just a handful of spring mix with no dressing. Server was great and drink were good but food was poorly made especially for the price.

The eggs Benedict was good, however a serrated knife would have made it much easier to cut through the salami and English muffin.. The short ribs hash was hearty tasting. Looking forward to having dinner there for more Italian experience.

Great food, decent service, awful atmosphere.
Arrived for an afternoon reservation to celebrate a college graduation. Music was BOOMING so loud our party of 4 could not have a conversation. I could understand if this was a late night date at a club, but this was early dinner with parents. Place was filled with other grads and mature Mother’s Day crowd, so it’s not as if we were out of place. It’s a shame because the place is cute and food was good, but I will not be back and I will not recommend.
