This restaurant certainly serves better food than most of the competition in town, especially the disappointing Le Belvedere. There's real cordon bleu appeal to the menu, and they don't overly mess up the food by trying to be too "sophisticated". There's a great selection of beers, lagers, and... read more

I ate here alone on a night I was in Newport on business. You walk in and are greeted immediately by a large square bar, but behind the bar wall is a cozy dining room. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The menu looked very interesting but a little pricey. The food features a lot of local resourcing which is... More

We had a small business dinner here-- to be honest this was my second dinner at Lago and I was excited to go back. They have a lengthy beer list and and equally impressive wine list. Although all my dinner companions held out for the healthy salmon, I succumbed to the decadent Pasta Carbonara. O.M.G. Food was served piping hot... More

When we lived in Vermont Lago was out favorite place to go for special occasions! The food was always fabulous, the service excellent and the atmosphere perfect! It is one of the things we miss since we move South!

Based on two visits to this comfortable restaurant, I'd say it was one of the very best in the area. The food is first-rate, the service pleasant and helpful, and the setting relaxed. What more could you ask for?

I love the high end burgers that Lago's delivers day in and day out, but I have been amazed by the Lobster Mac & Cheese and Steak Milanese specials that Frank has Run. If you are in town when these specials are offered be sure to take part .

Enter to a large, friendly rectangular bar where it looks like many locals gather. The main dining area is partially walled off from the bar. Menu has Italian favorites and includes cinghiale, which I did not expect to see in the Northeast Kingdom! The chicken Parmesan was very good. A cocktail list of special martinis was imaginative, and the one... More

I've visited Lago for the past 10+ years. We frequently dine at other establishments, and inevitably come back to Lago is better. To see the basil and tomatoes being grown in the large pots out back and on the sidewalk, then to taste the fresh herbs in the meals is fantastic. We had a feta stuffed fig - amazing. The... More

Let me start off by saying that I don't mind paying a fair price for good food and service. With Lago, the price/value ratio is way off. You walk into what appears to be a rustic sports bar - when we walked in on Sunday evening, a baseball game was on. Not exactly "fine dining". The dining room wasn't particularly... More
