I always like Lago. The room in the back has such a nice ambiance. The bread they serve is yummy. The crust is perfect. I always get the Cesar salad which they make tables side. Then I had the linguine in white clam sauce. Another wonderful dish! For dessert I ordered a cannoli but to my surprise they brought over 4 small cannolis on a plate with some fresh berries. Yum! It was packed on a Wednesday night. Love this place!

Got there at 6:30. Never got entree until 7:55. Noise level out of sight. Had trouble hearing people at our table. It was like they forgot we were there and could have cared less. Very disappointed.

We love Lago! The food is really great. We had Pasta with mushrooms made table side as well as Caesar Salad, also table side. We will definitely return on a week night. The weekends tend to be a bit noisy and it’s hard to hold a conversation. Other than the noise, we love it!

Service slow - food we ordered not great - I returned my meal but waiter took so long to come back I didn’t order another meal because everyone was done eating - carbonara sauce not good nor bolognese- maybe regular sauce or Alfredo would have been ok

Food was delicious but i wish there was more on the menu to choose from. Also the pasta with Parmesan cheese that is offered should be on the menu so that everyone knows that it is an option.

The food and service was amazing .. The boy reason why, it wasn’t 5 stars is because at times it is to loud.. The poor waiters and waitresses have to yell the specials ..

It was our first time at Lago. the staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. Food was good and arrived in a timely manner. Portions were not huge but certainly adequate. We look forward to going back. Parking was a little bit of a hassle but found a spot not too far away.

Was turned down rudely at the door despite reservations being available on OT through closing. Granted, it was the last day of the Euros, but there’s a polite and professional way to communicate this to someone.

My husband and I were looking for a different place to eat for our anniversary and after searching we agreed on Lago. So happy we did. It was a 40 minute ride from Dutchess County and minutes off of 684. The town was decorated for the 4th of July and looked Patriotic. Upon entering Lago, we were cheerfully greeted and seated right away. We notice a big staff and was glad to see people working after hearing some businesses are in need of help. Our server was great, cheery and I apologize for not getting her correct spelling of her name - Marial (SP?) Needless, the food and wine menu is nice and all our courses were delicious. We were asked if we wanted dessert and started to decline but decided on a tartufo and it was served with Happy Anniversary iced onto the plate. So sweet!!!! The ambiance was nice, not seated on top of one another. Reservations are probably best. The restaurant does get crowded. We are certainly returning.

I unfortunately did not have a great experience at this restaurant. When I arrived, it took about 10 minutes before anyone came to seat us. I did approach someone at the bar and I was told to just wait. I finally went looking and found a waitstaff who eventually came to the front of the house.
The food was fine but unfortunately the service was so incredibly slow and further I had to get someone’s attention each time I needed some thing. It was clear that our server was working very hard so there were no complaints with her specifically, but it was just clear that the restaurant was too busy to handle the patrons adequately. this was a Tuesday, so I wonder what it would be like on a weekend. Luckily I enjoyed the company I was with but overall I won’t be coming back anytime soon.

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.
