A great little find in the town.

The restaurant looks a little upscale from the outside, but the bar area was very puby and friendly. The bar maid was able to tell us all about the menu and checked back to make sure we didn't need anything else several times.

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

Ever have a crush on someone you never met but saw from across the room...and once you have met them, at every turn it makes you wish you never met your crush. Same thing here. Looks nice, makes a decent impression until you sit down on a pile of bread crumbs from the god knows when...The menu was in the... More

Our entrees were all very good. Mine was a Tuna, sashimi grade seared, and it was perfect!. The atmosphere is not as well done. It looks a little shabby, and dirty. The entrance is in through the bar, which is lively with TV's blaring, and lots of noise that is not very inviting. It feels like a locals' hangout at... More

First time dining at Lago. My entree was very good shrimp scallops & pasta, my wife's was sub par, 14 + dollars for arugula pizza, really? Ordered salads to start no small salads had to pay for a full salad which would have been enough as a meal alone. Was put off by the waitstaff reaching across my wife to... More

Although the food, atmosphere and selection is very good the price and the service leaves something to be desired. This was our second visit here and we went with another couple. Two appetizers, 4 drinks, four entrees and a bottle of wine brought the bill to $250!!!!! That's a lot of money for pasta!!

Outstanding quality of food! My husband had a wonderful duck confit and I had a series of appetizers that were amazing! Started with figs and prosciutto, followed by a Caprese salad that was wonderful and ended with a lamb lollipop! Absolutely super! Pizzas looked excellent at nearby tables. Another night we had maple creme brûlée for dessert with Irish coffee!... More

Frank consistently turns out the best food in the area, supported by a great staff which makes it our favorite dining spot in the region. Very attractively appointed as well. We have dined at Lago with friends from across the U.S. and abroad and have always had a great experience. Lucky to have it located in Northern VT.

If tomorrow were to be my last day on earth, I would be sure to go to Lago tonight for the Filet Burger. The absolute best. Thank you Frank. Joel C

I was a frequent patron but found service was not consistent and just quit going there. Restaurant doesn't open until 5pm and not open Sunday so take my lunch and weekend dining elsewhere.
