I love thin-crusted wood-fired pizza and typically seek this item out on restaurant menus when I am in the mood to indulge. Café Lago is simply the best, and consistently the best. And I would go as far as to say that it ranks above...More

We've been going to Café Lago for years, since it started as a tiny hole-in-the-wall and expanded at that location to fill half the block. But its larger size hasn't hurt its intimacy, its service, or its food. The hand-made pasta melts in your mouth...More

Have visited this restaurant several times, and it never disappoints. The menu is creative, it is diverse, the service great, and it is a terrific destination after a UW football game. All in all a great venue.

Clean, upscale yet kid friendly (provided crayons and butcher paper table covering). Excellent food. Three of four had the steak. One had the lasagna. Good wines. Busy even on a Thursday evening, so make a reservation. Patient, helpful server. Didn't rush us even though one...More
