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 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!

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.

Quite tasteless and overpriced. Service good but food was bland. Good if you like tinned chopped tomatoes.

If you like waiting 40 minutes for gummy risotto with undercooked, crunchy rice, you're gonna love this place. If, however, you like good service and quality food, properly prepared, you'll need to go elsewhere. Chances are, once you get to the better place, you'll find the prices are much more reasonable, too.

"Meh. I've experienced better." Pros: - Cobb salad was packed with bacon, chicken, egg, and avocado (I definitely got my money's worth) - lunch deal- $16-18 for unlimited salad bar and medium-sized entree Cons: - chicken was overcooked - service was alright, but the food took forever to arrive - food was nothing to brag about Bottom line: This place wasn't too bad, but I definitely won't be returning. Overall, I wasn't a fan of the food, and all the dishes and drinks seemed overpriced, especially considering the below-average portion sizes.

I came here as part of the Six Taste food tour and enjoyed our stay and taste offerings. A majority of our table loved the Crema di Granturco con Granchio: A sweet corn soup that tasted absolutely creamy but made with NO CREAM? Awesome! We also tasted the Vitello Tonnato (Chilled Veal Tenderloin) I thought this dish was OK. The tuna aioli was too overpowering and the rest of the table was murmuring that it just tasted like tuna. Our 3rd taste was Pizzoccheri alla Valtellinese, a wheat pasta with garlic and cabbage. It doesn't look too special but I loved this pasta dish. The wheat texture was great, and we love cabbage. We were able to take some home to go, since the other food tour participants didn't want to get too full. Thank you for being a part of Six Taste!
