I dined at the Lago on a Wednesday night and besides a group of people having what seemed like an appetizer reception, I believe I was the only sit down diner. My waitress was efficient and friendly. I ordered a wedge salad that was brought quickly and was tasty along with the bread slices and olive oil dipping mixture. My... More

I was in Newport, VT for a friend's wedding and she recommended this place for dinner. This place is rustic and comfortable. The drinks were top notch, I thought I was in a bar in Boston. I had the shortrib raviolis. They were so good, I can't wait for my next visit in a couple of weeks. I hope it... More

Strange mix of casual and fancy. I like the bar area best, it's a beautiful bar. The caesar salad with anchovies is fantastic. The anchovies are high qualify and not overpowering. Good beer selection, good appetizers (fig and prosciutto!). The wine list was kind of sad. Stick to beer or hard cider on tap.

My husband and I were just staying overnight in this small town before heading the rest of the way to Old Quebec city. We ate at Lago and enjoyed it. My husband had a Lemondrop cocktail which was very good and he ordered a pizza which was crisp and tasty. I had the short rib ravioli and enjoyed it. They... More

The arugula and goat cheese thin-crust pizza was excellent. My hubby and I shared a salad, a pizza and had dessert with coffee.

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
