Great experience

Although the menu is short on pasta and heavy on pizza, this restaurant offers some great classic dishes. The pollo aroso, black cod and osso bucco are outstanding. The wine list was adequate and the waitress was attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable.

Came here on a Bus tour. Superb service. There was an afternoon buffet set up for the tour groups (may not be available for non tour customers). Salad, pork, chicken, fish dishes, great desserts, fresh fruit, various rolls, hot side dishes (continous refills). Guide said that the buffet was around $65 Canadian per person. The food may not match the... More

We ate dinner at Lago one evening while staying at the Chateau. The service and menu are outstanding. For an Italian restaurant, the selection of Italian wines is quite disappointing. However we found a nice Brunello di Montalcino which was quite tasty. The food came and it was well prepared however lacking flavor. Given the amazing surroundings and price of... More

Wonderful Food and Wine yes but these were surpassed by the service of happy and helpful staff/ The restaurant had an Italian inspired menu so we experienced a taste of Italy in the Canadian Rockies. We had difficulty selecting a red and white wine for the meal and the bar manager was excellent in providing advice and allowing us to... More

If you like your pasta over cooked and sticking together, this is your place. How about flat beer? Both brands of tap beer were as flat as an aircraft carrier landing deck. The food was nicely spiced, but poorly prepared. One saving element was the fantastic server, Madeline, who did a great job. Unless things change for the better, I... More

The food was fantastic and the service was even better. Everything from pasta to wood fired pizza. I had the ravioli which was homemade with short ribs. The best I've ever had.

The night I was there was the first night this Restaurant had been open in this Spring/Summer Season so there was a degree of nervous anxiety among the staff. However the meal was delicious and the service impeccable. I also observed the largest Black Pepper Grinder that I have ever seen!

We booked and ate at this restaurant for family day long weekend and were a table of 8 including 2 kids. We were not able to get the booking time we wanted as the restaurant was "completely booked". When we arrived and during dinner it was at best 30% full. We were not told that it was a buffet when... More
