The food here is simply amazing and the service is super friendly and attentive. The price for the good food and the good service in my opinion is appropriate. Only critique is that the place looks a little old and smells like old furniture and that you cannot sit outside.

This was our first time dining at Lago. We went to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. We sat in the lovely dining room in the back of the restaurant for a more private and quiet experience. (The front has a more lively bar/restaurant scene.) The ambiance was lovely with large murals of a wine vineyard and wine cellar. The wait staff was attentive, friendly, and accommodating. We had minestrone soup, pasta bolognese, branzino, and completed our meal with orange and coconut flavored sorbets presented in their respective fruit shells. Each dish was delicious. I also had a Prosecco which was smooth and gentle to the palate. Since it was our anniversary, the restaurant surprised us by offering the dessert on the house. All in all, we had a lovely evening, great dining experience, and will definitely return to Lago for other occasions and recommend it to our friends.

Hadn’t been in over a year and it was better than we had remembered. The mushroom parpadelle in the cheese wheel was excellent as were our salads, entrees, dessert.

The food was amazing. The osso bucca wasn't dry it was cooked to perfection and the special pasta dish. Papa Della lago was amazing. They cook it table side in a giant wheel of parm cheese.
The Nutella pizza is the best dessert. It's Nutella between fried dough.

Our service was even better than the food. Our server Brittnay was amazing. She helped us pick out the special my wife had which was the filet of sole franchise. Amazing. Thank you Lago and Brittany!

Maitre D was very conscious about safety. We were asked where we felt comfortable sitting, and placed accordingly. Dinner for two including one appetizer, two mains, two desserts, two coffees, three beers came to around $90 pre-tip. Pretty good value, and the food looked great. Would try again!

This is our third time to Lago. We keep going back because the food there is very good. This is the first time we went on a Sunday night, not a Saturday. As soon as we arrived and we’re seated we were told that the kitchen closes within an hour and 10 minutes. Perhaps open table should not take reservations so close to the kitchen closing. We were slightly bothered by this. Had I called the restaurant for reservations they might’ve told me that and I would have moved up my table reservation time to earlier.

I’m not sure if we were not offered the specials of the night because of the timing of our reservation. They always have wonderful specials, and I did see them on their chalkboard as I passed by. However our server who was wonderful, did not offer them to us, nor did I ask. But I wonder whether or not it was due to the fact that the kitchen was closing and perhaps the chef did not have enough time to make some of those items for us. Again – a question to open table as to whether you should accept reservations so late to their closing time. We did make our dinner selections rather quickly, placed them with our lovely server, and everything arrived wonderful, hot, and delicious, and we did not feel rushed after that.

I will always return to Lago, however I may pay attention on non-weekend dining nights to kitchen closing times on my own.

Lago is a beautiful, authentic Italian restaurant perfect for a quiet romantic dinner or a small family gathering. The back seating area is cozy and we’ve never ordered something we didn’t love.

Not worth it. Food was arguably spoiled, told waiter, did not really care. Wine list had very little to offer and all the items requested were not in stock, also no vintages were listed. In this day and age of restaurants seems as if they have not upgraded their operations. Avoid.

Food & service are always very good. We’ve been disappointed with how they are handling the mask protocol. Bartender not wearing while serving & walking around. In addition customers walking in with masks in hand but not wearing to sit down and manager not telling them they need to wear them. We really like going here but will not be back until this Pandemic is over. Sorry!
