Stunning Lake views and solid dining experience

Had not been to Lago for a while and was happy to see some nice additions to the menu. The Ragu Alla Bolognese is one of our favorites there along with the Salmon Fresco. Their grilled swordfish was as good as we remembered it. While it is not an Italian eatery in the style of Boston's North End... read more

We had dinner in the most beautiful setting - right on the lake. The dinner was excellent and the service outstanding. I'd definitely go back again.

Four of us went on the Monday after the 4th of July. It was surprisingly still crowded - possibly also a surprise to the overwhelmed kitchen. We originally intended to sit outside but were told it would be an hour and half. While this was obviously a gross exaggeration, we couldn't really argue much about it. There were only two... More

The first time here was about a year ago. The Caesar Salad was okay - average. The eggplant parm was under cooked, was sent back, and returned barely cooked through.The sauce was overly sweet. The fish stew, on the other hand, was fairly good. The second time we had INSALATA DI AGRUMI - the avocado was unripe (crunchy!) and the... More

Stayed in Meredith for a weekend and had a terrible meal here. We had probably the worst Italian meal we have ever had. My wife had the Eggplant which came out in a gooey mess, you could barely tell what the plate was. All mush and quite tasteless, definitely the worst eggplant we have ever had out. I had the...

My son loved the Pellegrino water they served, but they didn't tell us it would cost extra. Unfortunately, the good could have been better. I ordered a steak done medium, but it arrived well done. My wife had chicken, and it was also overcooked and dry. My son had chicken parmesan with noodles on top, and it was very good... More

This was the fifth time we had dined at Lago. We are in the NH Lakes area every year and when we stay, we always have dinner one night at Lago. We have never had a disappointing meal, but when we were there a couple of weeks ago, again it was a great meal, served by a charming, and very... More

Wow! This was a bad dining experience because I am sure that the cooks have never been to a good Italian restaurant. If they billed as regular food with some pasta it still would suck. For example, chicken piccata was comprised of thick, un-tenderized, stringy, tough chicken breast in a sauce that includes chunks of lemon rind, summer squash, tomato,... More

Outstanding food and the waitstaff was excellent!! Very busy, but got our meals in a reasonable time.....and not hurried through it. The price is a little high but, on an occasional night out I would recommend Lago's, in Meredith,,NH.

Last Friday we went to Lago as this was our second visit. Not only is the restaurant and bar overlooking beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee the service and quality of the food is excellent. The antipasto appetizer enough for 4 is outstanding with fresh olives cheeses and meats for 13.00 dollars is an incredible value. If you have room for dinner the... More
