    Very disappointing. Service was more like absenteeism. Ignored most of the evening. Would and will never go back. Also interesting, the prices on the menu shown here Open Table are way less than the menu we were handed last night. Overall, just very very disappointing.

    There are several problems with this restuarant. First, the menu was not the same as that on their web site. We went there on 13 Feb and were handed a Valentine's menu with prices that were ~50% higher than on the web site. Second, the waiter made a mistake with the order and did not bring the food we ordered. Third, the tuna dish that I ordered was cool/cold. Apparently, it sat around for a while after it was cooked. Additionally, service was slow. When a restuarant charges premium prices, it should deliver premium food and service. Not so at Via Lago!

    The menu list had very decent prices, the food was very good, great taste and well served (not big servings, just the right amount). What was unexpected for me, was the music. They have a live singer, who sings any where from opera to Italian pop. He gets the people singing and laughing. Impossible not to notice the singer. Goes along very well with the Italian menu and some wine. My wife and I really enjoyed our visit to the restaurant and will definitely be back.

    We have been wanting to try Via Lago Trattoria for a very long time. We finally made it here to celebrate my birthday, and boy am I glad we did! The atmosphere is beautiful (and the restaurant is much bigger inside than I imagined it would be). Our server, Nicole, was as nice as can be, and very attentive to our needs. The food (all four of us ordered something different) was outstanding, and each of us said we would order it again (always a true sign that it was tasty). ;) I highly recommend the Pappardelle w/short ribs...simply delicious. We look forward to visiting again soon...this time we'll bring some friends and come on a night when the music is playing (birthday was on a Monday, so it wasn't a "live entertainment" night). Can't wait to come back!!

    This was our second visit here and the food was great. The service was a little slow, but overall dinner was great. We will be back soon.

    The food and wine were really good. I had the Salmon dish and it was so good I finished the entire meal which is not typical for me. I had lemon cheesecake and cappacino for dessert and it was to die for! My only critism was the level of noise. They had an amazing pianist/singer but it was so loud my girlfriends and I couldn't hear each other talk. Part of going to a nice restaurant is enjoying the company of others you are with and it is difficult when the noise level is to loud. Will definitely visit again and hope they have addressed the noise.
