This overlooks the hotel and the surrounding mountains. There is a decent menu and drinks selection and all was tasty and well presented at very reasonable prices. The service was outstanding. Very professional and friendly. Our meal was taking a bit longer than normal to prepare as they were busy so they brought out complementary amuse bouche while we waited.... More

We dined at fairview (lovely) and for variety and simpler dining experience tried Lago. What a mistake. Seafood rissoto was horrible and worse still duck gnocchi. When the plates arrived I could see that it was not going to be good. Classic example of false savings. Spend more and know you'll get good food elsewhere. Mind you still not cheap.... More

Wait staff were fairly caring and prompt, the view obviously fairly good. The food was at best average perhaps even lower compared to the other restaurants in the building. , paying 5-star prices for 1/2-1-star food. Not what one expects from a Fairmont Hotel and certainly not at Lake Louise. The "dining experience" requires a complete overhaul.

Peggy and I both had the bison lasagna. It was excellent. I had the Mediterranean seafood soup, which was a totally new experience and very good as well. It included rock shrimp, mussels, calimari and sturgeon. I also had a very nice Italian stout.

One of the best Italian meals I have ever had but by far the most expensive which means it cannot be rated as good value. For a one off this was OK but I am not surprised the restaurant was quiet.

Awesome food in true Italian style and good service staff and at affordable price. The location to the decor everything was fantastic and I forgot the name of the server who was serving the food. He was extra helpful during our food order and he was very polite as well.

Excellent food and worth spending a little extra for that special occasion. The service was excellent as well. We made our reservation a day in advance. Don't wait until that evening to be seated as this restaurant fills quickly

We went there by recommendation and weren't disappointed. The food really was great and so the wine. The setting in the cellar reminded a bit of an Italian grotto. We enjoyed our evening.
