A special occasion presented itself in the form of a 40th birthday for my sweetheart and we decided on Lago's... *We arrived on a Friday night with no reservations and got a seat within seconds. We were seated in the back half / porch section and had a beautiful view of the lake, *The ambiance was perfect & the temperature... More

My Bad! I read all the reviews and noted that folks found that the food could be spotty at times, but, on balance, the reviews were good. HOWEVER---I ordered eggplant parmigan which, when it arrived, had the consistency of charred hockey puck. It was somewhere with overly sweet tomato sauce and accompanied by spaghetti that was equally too sweet. Two... More

I met a friend here for a Friday evening dinner. The location right on the lake can't be more perfect. The house wines are drinkable and only $20 a bottle. If you want something fancier, they have that too. The meals were relatively pedestrian, but good. However, if you are thinking of going, do not order the full dinner size... More

First, I have to say we have been here before, and never been disappointed in past. As a member of the Common Man family they meet a certain standard. Welcoming, comfortable with excellent service and varied menus. The apps were delicious and abundant. We had a creamy Gorgonzola Fondue and a Calamari plate. The Calamari was lightly fried and golden... More

Great spot for dining in the Lakes Region. Wine down Wednesdays are a favorite with half-priced wine. Bolognese is awesome!

Reviews are mixed, but we liked the atmosphere, the service, the food and the prices. We were warned that the portions are enormous and indeed they were. One starter, one salad and one main were ample for us. Mind you, we are English.

Previous reviews have not been too complimentary of Lago. However, the fact we ate here on both nights is testimony to our feelings for this lively restaurant. Clearly popular with the locals especially on Win(e)down Wednesday when a bottle of wine is half price. Good food and plenty of choice...ask about their daily specials.

I went to Lago's last night with a party of 4. We were seated right away, great table, nice waitress. We are locals i.e., we frequent this place a lot. I had the worse dinner last night. I ordered chicken parmesan and can't believe the chef actually let this dish leave his kitchen. The piece of chicken was so overcooked... More

We usually avoid The Common Man family of restaurants in favor of family owned and chef owned restaurants; but, Lago was there and we were hungry, so we gave it a shot. The service, food and overall experience was simply ok. The most memorable part of our dinner was watching in disbelief as staff "cleaned" tables by sweeping them off... More
