“Better than average, one of the best in town”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

We had reserved online and were the first and only customers when we arrived at opening time. We probably didn't really give the food a full chance, ordering a pizza (very large and divided to suit us) and a good salad. It was suggested by the server and was just about the size meal we wanted. We started with a fancy martini which my husband didn't like, too sweet, so he took my first red wine and I drank the martini. Server very pleasant and helpful. The atmosphere of gussied up faux Italian made the place cozy, but it was getting shabby. The price of the wines differed by a bit on the menu and the bill (25c) minor but should be updated to be accurate. We accepted the differnce of course. I would try the place again and have a real meal to really judge the quality of the food.

“NYC'ers wowed by fantastic Italian food”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Who would have thought you'd find the best Italian food you've ever had (no exaggeration) in northern Vermont?

Frank is a fantastic chef. My girlfriend were in the area staying at a local B n B, and we stopped in for a bite to eat. We had crab ravioli, salad, and the pasta amitriciana (sp?). In any case, the food was truly spectacular, and coming from two NYC foodies, that's saying something!

“Reliable excellence”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Whether you order a perennial favorite or one of the creative nightly specials, we've been there enough to know that you will never be disappointed by Lago Trattoria. Stuffed figs, great salads, fantastic ravioli, fresh shellfish, hearty meat dishes - Lago has it all, complemented with a sturdy wine list and all at reasonable prices. If you haven't yet, go there soon. You'll be glad you did.

“Amazing”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

I have been to Lago tons of times but tonight the food was outstanding. Maybe it was the dish I picked the veal scallopini seriously best dish I have had in a VERY long time. The service (thank you Lori, Sandy, Jamie, Butch, Carol and Tamara) was amazing.
I will be back again and again and will recommend it to others. If you are deciding where to eat... LOOK NO FURTHER this is your restaurant!

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

Fantastic Italian food. The chef is Italian from Boston and the pastas that we had were first class. Both the duck ragu and the veal scaloppini were exceptional. If they maintain this standard I would highly recommend this restaurant if staying in sleepy Newport VT.
