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!

Excellent special salad, eggplant lasagna, salmon. We ate outside, which was noisy and flashy when fire station had activity, but that is a sign of our times, so I did not let that impact my rating.

Our Valentine’s Day experience was excellent. Food and service were very good, and price, though high, was not out of line considering the quality and what other restaurants charge. We went early, and so it was quiet, but even later on, it didn’t get noisy. Best tiramisu I’ve ever tasted.

Lago us a wonderful restaurant. Food is delicious with a wide variety of choices. The wait staff was very attentive. It was at times hard to hear one another; there was competing noise between other tables and the piped music. It shouldn’t stop anyone from going to this restaurant.

Good food and service the back room was crazy noisy but we were lucky that there was a table for 6 in the bar area which was much quieter. I would not sit in the back again. We had a new waitress who tried hard but annoyingly kept calling us honey sweetheart and darling ugh

Nice and cozy but back dining room was cold. I wish it was a tad warmer. Great Caesar salad, nice scallop appetizer (lacked a little salt) and a veal entree which was just okay.
Again, lacked seasoning and the Barolo sauce was bland. I loved the sautéed onions, peppers , peas and sundries tomatoes but it just lacked flavor. I would go back because I liked the menu and the service was good. Nice people, festively decorated for the holiday - just wish my food had more flavor.

Lago is our absolutely favorite restaurant in this area and worth the drive to get there.
The food is consistently outstanding. The table side preparation of Papparadelle alla Lago by Angie was the best. You cannot get this anywhere else. Angie and Andressa could not have been better. They went out of their way to make this Birthday dinner super special, and we are grateful...the Swordfish so tender and delicious...the Gnocchi mouth-watering...the skirt steak tender and served with delicious mashed potatoes and vegetables. My favorite drink is the Amara Smash. I believe it is the bartender's creation...very, very good. If you are in the area, don't miss out on one of the Best Restaurants. Thank you!

I saw pictures of the restaurant on line, which looked attractive, so i made a reservation for our anniversary. We were seated opposite the bar at a comfortable table but the noise level was extraordinary. I didn't mention the special occasion to the hostess (I never do) and did not ask to be moved. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the servers Andre and Brittany were very attentive and pleasant. We will go back but will ask to sit in the back room.

Overall our group was somewhat disappointed. There was a lack of choices for pinot noir on the wine list. Someone in our group ordered a plate of pasta fagioli & it was never served to him. Other than that we enjoyed the fried calamari & baked clams. Three people ordered the branzino & were quite pleased. I had the pappardelle special that is prepared inside the cheese wheel. Awesome! The pana cotta was a bit dense & rubbery. Wish the dining area was less noisy. Quite difficult to carry on a conversation!

Love this restaurant. Food was just a little off for me this time vs all my previous visits. Not sure if a chef change or just an off night. I will go back again as it has always been one of our favorites. Of same experience, then I will think twice next time.

This is one of the better Italian places to East in Westchester. Nice ambiance, very nicely prepared food, although some of the dishes, not all, were a little on the salty side, and truly good service. Pasta I fagiole soup was fantastic. Salmon, pasta and seafood entrees were all good. All the food was plentiful, a nice surprise! Definitely recommend.

We go to Lagos often. The food is always delicious, service great and not disturbing to patrons. My husband and I had the pork chop with favs beans. The pork chop had a nice crispy edge, tender inside and the beans were very favorable, a nice paring. My son had the short rib which was incredibly tender and his girlfriend, a pasta dish she favored. We started with the antipasto platter with Faccaccia. I had the burrata, tomato, caprese. Delicious. We will be back.
