The menu from appetizers to entrees is wonderful. They have a Happy Hour that no one should miss. The interior of the restaurant is tastefully decorated and the patio is well designed with comfortable seating. Great musical entertainment also. Locals are regulars and visitors are delighted to find this Italian jewel.

We live 130 miles away but come at least once a year for our anniversary. Since our anniversary was on a Tuesday, the restaurant wasn't very full so we sat at the bar. OMG! We had the best time!! The bartender (sorry, I don't know her name) was fabulous! So attentive, knowledgeable, helpful, and fun! The owner came over and... More

My husband and I live a few miles from Via Lago but had never been there. We had a gift card so went on a Wednesday evening. The hostess gave us both the regular menu and a Happy Hour menu because Happy Hour was still in effect. We had appetizers from the HH menu. I had shrimp cocktail (5 large... More

My wife and I tried this place for the first time the other night and we fell in love with it. The food was amazing and the service was top notch. It felt like everyone there had pride in what they were doing. The drink list is limited in the mixed drink selection to primarily martinis. They were not familiar... More

We love this restaurant! The atmosphere is serene - well designed. The food is delicious and elegant. Last year, we brought our cousin - an amazing and much admired home cook from Formia, Italy, and she absolutely loved it! She wanted to taste every dish and exchanged recipes with the owner, Joe Busalacci. He speaks Italian, of course.

I have been here many times for lunch and early dinners. I have made a point of ordering something different every time I go even if it isn't something I would normally order, just to expand my palate. I have loved everything. The flavors and freshness of the food is wonderful and I love every bite. We all love the... More

This is my third visit to this place and every time is getting better. Great selection of italian food and drinks. Huge wine selection by the way. Service is great, sometimes a little bit slow but nothing to blame. The atmosphere is more on the romantic side, the outdoor are is very nice also. All in all some of the... More

We have been coming here for 4 years. The food is extremely fresh and the service is amazing. Very low key, not loud. Can be a bit spendy but worth it. Great for romantic dinners or just a relaxing family dinner.
