We made a short notice reservation on a rainy night. The staff greeted us warmly and the service along with the food was excellent.

Always outstanding at Bel Lago's, but they outdid themselves tonight. We had the specials, grouper and osso bucco. Both were exceptional. Service was great as well. Can't wait to go back.

Went to Bel Lago after seeing Star Wars. Service was spectacular and the food was wonderfully prepared and very very good. Ambiance in the restaurant was very romantic despite the strip mall location. Highly recommend!!

Had a wonderful meal at Il Bel Lago last evening. Food was outstanding the the service was top notch. Our server, John, made us feel at home immediately. He was professional, friendly and make sure everything went perfectly. We both had cannelloni and a mushroom risotto as an appetizer and they were both delicious. We split a egg plant salad based on our server's recommendation and it was equally as wonderful. My wife enjoyed her Champagne Chicken while I enjoyed the Filet for our main courses. They were delicious and we finished them both even though we were stuffed! They have a nice wine list with plenty of top notch choices. Restaurant was busy, but it was still quiet and romantic. The owner checked on us (and others) frequently to make sure all was well. Always a good sign. Will definitely return!

A party in the private room was quite noisy. Was difficult to hear server's telling of specials. As room is open, no way to avoid this

The food was outstanding and the service was excellent until the end of our dinner. It took 20 minutes to get the bill and our food that was wrapped for take home. I think they were slammed all at once and I’ll give them a break. We’ll definitely go back.

This reservation was for Valentine's Day, 6pm. Arrived and seated immediately. Server was Ray, who did a very good job, didn't hover, paid attention. We had the special of the day, Grouper ($40) and the President Regan Bowtie ($20ish) glass of wine, 3 beers, calamari and smelts appetizer($13). Total cost with tip $129. Not horrible for a special occasion. The pasta was very good. The Grouper was bland by itself, but when eaten with the sauce(which you are supposed to do) it was good as well. Was it worth $40? Probably. The appetizer only had 3 smelts, but a large serving of calamari. Toward the bottom of the plate the pieces were a bit oily, but that is to be expected. Overall, I would recommend this place for special occasions.

We love this restaurant and invited friends to join us last week; all was great except the waiter seemed to be in a big hurry to close out the evening. It was only a little past 8:00 pm and he came by our table three times in 10 min checking his watch.....we all picked up on it and wrapped up our evening earlier than we wished. Left the wrong impression for our friends.

Il Bel Ago never disappoints! Another wonderful meal, great service, and great ambiance! My wife and I have often dined there, and this time we brought the little ones. They loved the cheese pizza while we got to enjoy our delicious adult entrees and a great glass of wine.

The food was outstanding. The service was not. The server took drink orders, deliveree the drinks and was not seen again for over 20 minutes. No bread...nothing. When this was pointed oit his response was "well, we're busy." No apology, nothing done to try to make it up. Just move on to ordering food.
Also he promised dishes in certain ways then delivered very different food. Example my difficult, off the menu ordering sister, was told he would bring her broccoli, baby squash mix with --per her request- -No cheese...and with no explanantion he brought carrots and green beans. Sprinkled liberally with cheese. Again when pointed out - no apology, discussed getting her something else but she was "fed up" and didn't want to wait any longer at that point.
What food we got was skillfully prepared, tasty, if a bit pricier than a true restaurant on the Hill.

Outstanding Italian food at Bel Lago. Meatball appetizer, stacked salad, caprese salads were all excellent. Cannelloni and lobster entrees outstanding. The cannelloni is the best in the city. First class service as always. This is the top Italian restaurant in St. Louis.
