Northern Italian cuisine from the Lake Como region served alongside an extensive wine list.- Google
"The food was passable but the ambience & service is deplorable."
"Good if you like tinned chopped tomatoes."

To put it bluntly, I've had better and more attentive service at a parking lot taco stand. The service here was horribly slow. The food was overpriced. My side dish came out cold and we had to ask for basic dining services multiple times. Save your time and money. Go somewhere else. ANY where else.

My wife, daughter and I absolutely love this restaurant. We had dinner here during my daughter's spring break week, and everything about the experience was topnotch. Well-situated table, solicitous service from Ivan, and exquisitely prepared dishes. We also enjoyed the location on a corner along the Third Street Promenade, a special place in its own right. We are looking forward to returning to Locanda del Lago in the near future.

I have been to Lago for lunch and dinner numerous times. Lunch is served quickly, waiters are attentive, and lunch specials affordable and delicious. They also have this great salad bar, with freshly made Italian salads, like burratta cheese and tomatoes, and pasta salad with cannelloni beans. At dinner, the pastas and main dishes like short rib, are amazing. The chef is Michelin rated, and the bartender is a sommelier. Not many restaurants can say they've been in business for 25 years - these guys have. They are doing something right - correction, everything right!

When we walked in something was off. We were ignored by the host staff. We we had a reservation. We were finally seated. The place is like an over priced Olive Garden, Cheesecake Factory or macaroni grille. Lots of children & people in baseball caps. Me & my partner made the trip from west Hollywood for some Italian food. We were marginalized. The waiter talked down to us. We have been around the world. We know where Italy is on the map & we know where lake como is before George Clooney discovered it. The food was passable but the ambience & service is deplorable. When the check arrived they insulted my fiancé by asking if the card was good. Walk on by.

Service was good. But food took way too long to long to come. Over 45 minutes for appetizer. Overpriced as well. The server was nice and apologetic. Will not come back. Tomatoes in the appetizer were green.

I never go there again. It is not too bad but comparing the prices with cheesecake factory, you can have better foods and menu with same price. We ordered penne pasta 16$, European burger 15$ & portion pasta14$ for kid. Penne came with very very short shredded chicken, portion pasta came with just butter sauce. If we paid same prices in cheesecake factory, we got lot of chicken in pasta & kid pasta too.
