Eight of us met here for dinner on a Sunday night at 8PM. Waited at the bar to be called- waited at the bar to be served. A bit odd that no one bartender seemed to be dedicated to the very large bar. Sat for about 20 mins at the bar before they took our drinks order. We sat by the windows and had a great view of the full moon rising. Food is good; like upscale pub food with nice pasta and meat options. Cheese risotto was very good. Lobster meatballs are interesting and worth a try but not a game changer. A great atmosphere to dine with friends but not a place for that special dinner.

We chose Lago for a special birthday dinner despite the less than stellar reviews because we wanted to stay within walking distance of our room. The food we ordered was below average (tough braised ribs, many wilted and slimy lettuce pieces, peas that must have been frozen and were a detraction from the Carbonara instead of a pleasurable pop of flavor). If it were not for the yummy frozen drinks, excellent service and views from our lakeside table it would have been a bust. Be forewarned if you go at sunset and dine outside, the citronella torches do not sufficiently keep the mosquitos away.

We have eaten at Lago every summer for the past 5 years as we vacation in New Hampshire, and have always enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere is wonderful - casual, cozy, with a great lake view. The waitstaff has always been pleasant and helpful, and food uniformly good. We usually have a party of 5-7, and taste each other's entrees; I used to love the butternut squash ravioli, which is unfortunately not offered any more, but now I generally order fish. Others have ordered Italian dishes, and enjoyed them. Yes, the portions are large, but we consider that a plus. We take home the leftovers and have a delicious dinner the next day.

Lago has an extensive wine and cocktail menu, which is a plus for evening dining.

This place was packed! The bread & butter came out with our appetizers so there was not much time to enjoy. The main courses were huge!! I wish the waiter had warned us. We had too many left overs that we weren't able to take with us. Food was regular italian, nothing fancy.

Located downstairs from the Inn. Menu is varied and delicious. The servers and bartenders are awesome. I love the place.
