“Peaceful place to enjoy a unique dish.”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I try to go every Friday, sit in the lounge, have a glass of wine and a veal dish. Very reasonable, very good, and not too much food. Staff is nice especially the lounge lady who is cheerful and helpful. A winner all the way around!

“Wow these guys really busted their butts for us!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Went here for a family reunion/birthday bash, despite a full restaurant I mean full! The service was spot on, they were johnny on the spot for everything and with 30 of us running them in every direction for drinks and all they really handled it well, the service was great especially given they were doing a large group in the main dinning and our large group I was really pleasantly surprised. Ok and let me add the food was awesome too, quite possibly the best veal I have ever eaten...definitely I will be back! Excellent job guys!!!

“Pricey but good for a business lunch or romantic dinner”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Il Bel Lago is a little on the pricey side. It is a great place for lunch if you have a big client and you want to take them someplace nice. It is also a great place for a dinner with the spouse or soon to be spouse. In fact, judging by the bar, you could just go solo and meet someone...what you might call a target-rich environment.

The pastas are mostly fresh and the sauces are unique twists on classics. The veal is very fresh and I had the lamb chops, which I think is the best thing on the menu. The wine list is extensive and the beer selection, although limited, covers all of the bases from lagers to IPAs to Belgians.

“Great Italian food”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

This restaurnat could be in any big city and shine. The food is superb - always and the owners are there making sure everyone is being take care of. I have been to and had functions there and it is always a first class operation. It is in a strip center, but inside you are transported to another place. It is well done. I love their eggplant and tomato salad

“A Local Gem”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We've been coming here regularly since it opened and even have had a number of family events there. I would rate them as good or even better than most other Italian restaurants in the area. The service is good but not over bearing and the food always is top rate. The specials are good choices if you want to move from the traditional menu items. The kitchen never fails.
