Ambiance was great, service excellent. Arrived at 5 PM for an early dinner and by 6 pm asked for second round of drinks. Server informed us they were "out" of drink special mix. What ? ran out by 6 PM ? Appetizers were very good and well presented. Stuffed pork chop was excellent according to my wife. I had Linguine which was fair, but had little taste and watery broth.
Hopefully bar will be better stocked and take your Linguine up a notch and you'll be a perfect 10.

If you are in the Cleveland area, be sure to try Lago East Bank, you will be happy you did. We will come back next time! :) Our server was Kyle and he was excellent as well:)

My friends and I enjoyed a Sunday Brunch at Lago East Bank! They were a little busy so our service was slow. When you get bottomless Mimosas it’s important to get prompt refills. The food was average for the most part. Salt and pepper would have enhanced the dishes tremendously. Especially when you order Waygu beef and it is bland along with the short rib hash. The chicken and waffles were delicious and the breakfast pizza looked amazing. Maybe next time I should make different choices.

Service was great by our waitress. By far the best part of the dinner experience. The hostess sat us in a corner that really shouldn’t be a table and when we asked to change she said this is where Open Table reserved your table and they were completely booked. (Not sure that sounds right). They eventually moved us to a better table and 90 minutes later there were still many tables available. Ordered the chocolate Moët bottle ( not worth the mess). When they opened the plastic wrapped split1/2 bottle chocolate went everywhere. Not worth the $40 especially since is was mostly just debris on table. We ordered a full Moët ($120 double the store cost of $60) which was pricey but great. I full expected a higher price but not $120. I highly recommend the cauliflower app! The salmon and snapper dinners we ordered were ok...just ok. Overall it was good . I would go back

Lago is our regular hunt. We go there every Tuesday because you can get a bottle of wine for half off. The salads are excellent so we start off with one each. I like the Arugula and beet salads while my wife goes for the chopped or spinach salads. Sometimes, we do a soup instead. For mains, we either share a pizza or work our way through the excellent pasta dishes. The Salmon and Chicken dishes are always good and a friend swears by the Lobster gnocchi. Service is always friendly and professional. The wine list is very good. Our favorite is Treana Chardonnay.

The menu takes traditional Italian dishes to the next level, with a vast selection for every course. Our group loved the meatball appetizer...they were flavorful and juicy. I cannot say enough about the excellent service. Our server and the manager patiently went above and beyond to help a member of our group with special dietary requests, and the kitchen delivered!

We were able to get a reservation on NYE, got there early and we were able to sit at the bar while we waited for our table the ladies bartending made great wine recommendations and we decided to stay and eat in our seats at the bar. Got the steak special, also recommended by the ladies, it was amazing. We stayed there for quite a while before leaving to watch the ball drop. Over the last year this has been one of our favorite places to go for dinner and we will definitely keep going back. Great food, service, atmosphere and overall the experience of going has never let us down.

Wonderful way to celebrate my daughters birthday. The service was spot on. The food fresh and very home made. Nothing felt pre packaged. The noodles were melt in your mouth. The lobster gnocchi was insane. I also loved the chocolate lava cake. The tiramisu my kids had was tasty too. We love Italian and I would put this at the level of Giovanni’s, Lucas, and Michael Angelo’s. So nice to have another wonderful Italian Restruant in Cleveland. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

This was my second visit to Lago East Bank. Alieo was the server both times, and provided excellent service, while being very personable.
The food was exceptional, and my husband's lobster gnocchi dish was absolutely delicious. I chose the salmon on this visit, and it was perfectly prepared.
The wine selection at Lago is extensive and outstanding.
We will definitely be back, hopefully to try out their patio next summer!

we got the lunch express thinking it would be a value and be speedy...it was neither! our lunch took almost two hours and i left hungry. the half sandwich half salad was $14 and the salad was teeny and there was maybe one ounce of turkey. it was extremely expensive for what it was and really wasn’t good either. we both got a cup for $6 which was also extremely small, i wouldn’t even pay $3 for it. i left hungry and spent A LOT of money! i won’t be back
