Best Italian Restaurant in St.Petersburg just around the Zenith Stadium. Was there in the FIFA world cup period and even a lot of visitors doesn't stop waiters to do their job perfect

I was in this restaurant to celebrate my birthday and I was very impressed about the atmosphere!!
Italian chef and I’m Italian so my expectations were high!
I ordered a very nice foie grass and a super seafood pasta
All good and great
For a romantic dinner I really recommend but not cheap!!
Also no easy to find! Taxi spent extra 20 mins to find the location unfortunately!

After traveling often to Saint Petersburg, I can fairly say, this is the Topi di Top Restaurant in the city. No other place is at such an high level in terms of service, location, wine list and food then Il Lago. They perform every day on such a high level that it’s by far the best address in town.

Located in a separate mansion of modern design on the shore of the lake, where there are swans. An amazing coincidence of a beautiful name and actual embodiment. Italian cuisine, not the usual recipes and skilful use of the most valuable products - black truffles and caviar, seafood. From the features of the menu, you can distinguish a calfskin and a pigeon. The dessert card is represented by a variety of desserts from blueberry pie to Napoleon's home and a raspberry souffle that melts in the mouth. A combination of high quality, service standards, design and prices.
