This restaurant is a little gem. Meatballs as an appetizer or with the tagliatelle were special as claimed. Calamari was not breaded, which makes it unusual, and were cooked perfectly. Nice flavor and not rubbery. Tiramisu was a perfect way to top off the meal. Would order all again. Service was excellent -- server always there when we wanted him. One caveat: Double JW Black appeared to be charged double a single. So, before ordering food we had already spent $48. (2x$24) By contrast a comparable restaurant the next night charged only $1.50 more for a double JW Black than a single.

This was our first experience at Lago and we definitely will return. We all agreed that the evening was a success due to our server, Winchell. He was VERY knowledgeable regarding wine, menu items, and even took the time to ask the chef about a request. He was very attentive without being annoying. Each of our menu selections were delicious. The lobster gnocchi had a very generous amount of lobster.....so very good!!!! It is so nice to be able to choose between half or full orders. I highly recommend Lago's for quality food, service, and a very enjoysble experience.

The food was fantastic and we enjoyed the ambiance. The service started off great, but then our server kept forgetting about us and taking forever to come back. We had been there for an hour and had somewhere to be and took awhile to get a check. However, it happens and I would definitely go back for the food and overall value. Bottomless mimosas at brunch definitely worth it!

The food is outstanding! We began with the arancini and cauliflower appetizers, which were both delicious. Main courses were stuffed acorn squash risotto - a long time favorite of mine from Lago's in Tremont and Cavetelli. I need to go more often!

What’s not to love!! Great choice all the way around. Food, service, wine selection, comfortable atmosphere, place to see and be seen! The cauliflower app was just enough heat to make it delicious, rigatoni for entree was not too heavy and had lots of color. The in-house cocktail menu was a perfect balance of trendy and traditional. Can't wait to be back...

I was happy with the food and food staff. I was disappointed in hostess desk. We arrived to the hostess saying “can I help you?”. Wouldn’t it be better to say, “Welcome to Lago, do you have a reservation with us tonight?” I explained I had a reservation for 8:30. Hostess said it would be a second. A few minutes later another couple arrives with an 8:30 reservation and hostess greets female guest with a rose (for Valentine’s Day) and proceeds to seat them. I kindly asked why a couple who came in after us with same reservation time was seated first. Hostess didn’t provide an explanation and eventually seats myself and my wife. My wife was never offered a rose - so I went back up to hostess stand to ask if roses were for a special reservations? Another hostess explained they were for all females because of Valentine’s Day. I explained my wife never got one upon entering. Hostess apologized and offered a rose. Coming in was the only rocky and frankly - unprofessional part of the experience. The food/table staff were great and the food was fantastic. I’ve been a guest on several occasions. This was the first visit that wasn’t up to par. Thankfully I know it’s not the norm- but first-timers may be turned off had this been there “welcome” experience.

Food was great but I think that $11 for a glass of their Red House wine was a little pricy, beware. That's 3-4 dollars more than most places charge, even for dinner

Dinner after a show downtown. Restaurant has a great vibe. We were seated in a cozy booth. Service was excellent. Brooke took care of us and she was attentive and sweet. Nice cocktail list and wines by the glass. Wish there were more draft beer options but ones they had were pretty good. Arrancini was delicious! Calamari was ok, not a lot of flavor although cooked well. The accompanying sauce was great though. Excellent bread. Lobster gnocchi was amazing! Tender pasta and lots of lobster. Great burger too!! No room for dessert. Enjoyed the atmosphere when we first got there but toward the end the music was a little loud for conversation. Lago definitely delivers on food and service. We will definitely return!
