Tortellini di Vitello
Housemade dumpling noodles stuffed with veal, finished with shitaki mushrooms, ham and fresh peas in a sherry cream sauce.
Sweet cherry tomatoes, mozzarella di buffalo, basil, pesto, drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette
9 oz. Boneless Breast pan sautéed, finished in an orange Champagne cream over baby sautéed spinach.
Waiter outstanding. Good delicious. Great evening.
Service was lacking detail. Sat us down but no menus. Brought bread but no butter. Salad was well presented but I would swear it’s not made to order. Asked for champagne to start followed by a nice barolo. But the red wine was brought first instead. The food did not live up to the price. Pasta dishes were way over sauced and felt pre made. This restaurant presents itself as fine dining but it appears all aspects have settled into complacency rather than living up to expectation. This was our first visit and I could tell it’s popular spot given the crowded tables. Just not our night I suppose.
Excellent as Always
The Service very professional
Top restaurant in St. Louis
Fantastic as always!
Great as usual. Brett is an awesome server. Highest recommendation and will be back.
I have dined at Il Bel Lago in the past and had excellent food. This visit was disappointing in that the food looked beautiful, but lacked seasoning. It was almost as if it was accidentally left out. My salad had rusted lettuce with and off taste. I noticed others who ordered the salad did not eat it either. Gregory our waiter was outstanding!
Everything was just as expected from this excellent restaurant.
We had a wonderful evening for our date night. The veal chop was outstanding and my wife’s tortellini was very good. Both paired nicely with our superb Barolo. Highly recommended for a special night out.
Service was great and the food was amazing. Will be going back!
Was surprised you couldn’t get Prosecco by the bottle(only splits). We had a late dinner reservation on New Years Eve, and though the waiter was great, the pasta tasted like it had been reheated. The first salad i hot was warm…the waiter was nice and replaced it with a cold fresh caprese salad that was great. Too bad the pasta was sticky like paste and unappetizing.
It was New Years Eve, food was great and atmosphere good, not as energetic as prior years but staff was exceptional and made up for that. Should have requested our special booth and will remember that for next year.
A nice New Year’s Eve dinner with attentive service and not too much craziness!
Always impeccable service and outstanding food. Has become a favorite in our rotation.
Just amazing food. Our new favorite restaurant.
Wonderful atmosphere and delicious Italian food!
We have never been to this restaurant before, but that is going to change! They have fabulous food. There is a huge menu which makes it fun but hard to choose something. Everybody there was more than satisfied with what they had. The service was great considering it was Christmas Eve with lots of people there. The special risotto of the day was fabulous, with lots of seafood in it!
We really loved the drinks like partridge in a pear tree, and the nutcracker drink was fantastic. We can’t wait to go back and try some more on the menu! Highly recommend!
Family holiday time
Excellent food and wine. They seemed a bit short-staffed but overall it was a very pleasant dinner. They always deliver a fine dining experience. And the leftovers were great a day later!
Always a wonderful experience, always feel welcome. Tanta grazie!
Everything from the ambiance to the food was amazing!
I will be returning again, hopefully for happy hour, this experience was dining only.
The food and service are outstanding. They never fail to accommodate special dietary needs. Finding a restaurant that has consistency in all areas is rare these days. I highly recommend this restaurant!
The very best Italian Restaurant I have been to.
The owner cares.
He is moving from table to table making sure everyone is taken care of.
I took 15 of my employees to this restaurant having nver been before and I can't tell you how pelased Iw as from the time we walked in the door until we left two hours later. The service is top notch! Our waiter, Gerard, was terrific. He knew he menu, had great stories and couldn;t have been more pleasant to work with. The manager and the entire wait staff were just about as good as I have ever experienced. The food was outstanding and I highly recommend the veal chop parm! It was so so good.
I can't wait to take my family and get back here soon. Thank you!
4 couples gathered for a Holiday lunch. Our table was in one of the private alcoves with a circular table…perfect for conversation all around. As always the wait staff was knowledgeable and efficient and the food was exceptional. The grouper special, the lasagna and a variety of entree salads were all outstanding. You simply cannot go wrong at Il Bel Lago.
Loved it! At Louis has lots of great Italian food but this was truly exceptional. Great setting. Owner greeted us and was wonderful. We have a new favorite place. Thanks so much!!
Great food, presentation and service!
Wonderful for special occasions or private family dinner
Gregory served us. Did a fabulous job. He is one of the top 3 servers I have ever had anywhere, and I told him that.
Great Food and service
Waiter was dealing with a family issue and was having a very bad day that impacted service. Despite this, We enjoyed our lunch. The food was very good!
Outstanding service, beautiful presentation, wonderful meals! Great dining experience!
My friend and I dined here for my birthday and let me tell you, the food was phenomenal + the service was even better!! Yum!
I found the service lacking. Perhaps our waiter had too many tables, but he certainly was not very attentive. I found the food fair. The side of pasta, at least was good and hot, which I like. The main entree was ordinary in taste, and the salads were dull.
We were in the area for a soccer tournament and wanted our girls to eat pasta. This restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food was amazing, the drinks were great, and the girls were able to fuel their bodies for the tournament.
Did not disappoint
Greeted pleasantly. Cocktail and wine very good. Food was prepared perfectly and portions very large. Our waiter was attentive
It was my guest's birthday and she was served a beautiful/tasty dessert
Another great meal at IBL! Both service & food were excellent. That's a superb meatball!
Great food. Great service
We had a fantastic experience last night! Everything was really special and perfect. The service and food could not be better. We would highly recommend to anyone.
