Great view, just ok food, really solid service

Wonderful view of the lake from most tables...that's really the reason to go. Our server was really nice & attentive. The food, well, it was just ok. Had the recommended Bolognese, way too much sauce & meat. Endless bread is always nice. It was a nice place, too bad the food didn't match how... read more

Food is really tasty! Waiter was very friendly and efficient. Loved the ambience! The view is nice but blocked with the windows that has wooden tiles. We tried everything on the menu since we were a big family and we shared the plates . Everything tasted good but portions are big. Two can share one plate if you weren't that... More

We ordered our drinks and went outside and it was so much quieter and view is awesome. Outdoor patio wasn't open yet but I would suggest that if you want to get away from restaurant noise. We didn't eat there but the place was hopping so I am sure it's good!

The service here is wonderful, and the food, spectacular. We had the burrata as an appetizer (for those who love cheese) and the arrosto chicken. The lemon cream cake should not be missed when they have it. We stayed for a week, and ended up here a few times. The view is stunning. If I could give it more than... More

All the staff at Lago are great. Happy, intelligent and knowledgeable about the menu. The place on our weekend was incredibly loud with several tables of drunken bachelorette parties and graduation parties. They were really obnoxious and there was no was to get away from them. Really ruined the dinner.

The Common Man chain is renown for horrible food, but Lago may be the worst food experience in New Hampshire. The restaurant is built out nicely and the bar can be fun. Just don't eat here.

This was our first visit here, for the occasion of my husband's birthday. We went on a Friday evening, arrived at 5:30 and immediately got a nice seat overlooking the water, with great views of the lake and town docks. We had a very pleasant, attentive and experienced server, everything moved along at just the right pace, we were not... More

We went to this restaurant and we were lucky enough to sit in the front with a view of the lake. The sun had just set and it was a very romantic setting. I had the shrimp and scallop scampi which was full of flavor and cooked perfect. My fiancé enjoyed his chicken broccoli Alfredo as well. Very cozy restaurant... More

Pollo Milanese - must be Italian for melt in your mouth. The service we got from everyone made me feel like an invited guest. The homemade limoncello to end the meal was a nice touch. We had a beautiful table overlooking the lake. This is quite romantic spot.
