This is my favorite Eatery in Newport. Newport has several great places for food, but in my opinion, no one compares to Lago. Frank is the owner chef, and his mastery in the kitchen is veritable cornucopia of earthly and sea delights. His Frutti de Mar seafood creation is exquisite, by far my favorite meal. My wife, who is a... More

We stopped into Lago Trattoria for dinner after a funeral; we expected a quick, quiet bite. What we got was even better; the restaurant was quiet though it was largely full, the drinks were delicious, and the food was very tasty Italian, nice and comforting and warm (which we needed after walking through the cold winds off Lake Memphremagog!)

The atmosphere here is refined. The food is always really good, a little on the expensive side. The service is courteous and professional. It's as close to fine dining as you'll get on Main Street.

We went out on a Monday to celebrate my husbands birthday. There were not a lot of patrons, but they were obviously short staffed as the bartender and the cook were waiting tables. The service was friendly and attentive though. The problem was the food. The pasta carbonara was not particularly tasty and way over salted, chicken Parmesan was good,... More

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 wines. It's not cheap, but it is worth it. But the service... 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 .
