Driving down from Quebec to Newport to celebrate my gf birthday, Lago has been an excellent choice. The frutto di mare, the veal milanesse, the antipadto and the desserts, all excellent italian taste from local farms. At the end of the evening, we got to meet the owner, great person. Lago is a landmark in Vermont, a must to taste... More

My apologies to the chef for 3 *. The cinghiale & the pappardelle were excellent- 5*. Since we were a large group we split into two larger than normal tables. While the other table consisted of the late arrivals who came after 7pm, they were served first and finished their meals before we received our entrees about 8:45pm. Ashley was... More

Delicious food in a beautiful space. If you can appreciate well crafted, farm to table food you'll love Lago. The $25 per plate price tag might seem high but it is totally worth it, We sat in the dining room and could see the food being prepared in the open style kitchen, The staff was great! Though the owner/chefs negative... More

The steak was tender and the bleu cheese sauce incredible. Grilled asparagus? Melted in my mouth. All with an excellent wine selection and courteous service. I will visit this restaurant again.

our best night out restaurant locally. Food is unfailingly good, and the calamari is absolutely the stanadard I compare any other with and have never found any better. Frank and the staff are welcoming and capable

My partner and I dined at Lago last weekend and it was delicious. We had never been to Newport and did not know what to expect. I enjoyed the Lobster ravioli and my partner had the Carbonara. Both were very good, the Carbonara especially. Our drinks were also very good. I had a manhattan, up, and liked that they served... More

We came in to have a quiet glass of wine and salad and pizza and the pizza was perfect. Maybe the best we'd ever had-- thin crust, crispy, perfectly done and the staff was really nice and helpful offering us tips on glades and skiing at Jay. We will go back the next time we're in Newport. Lovely ambiance, good... More
