Friends recommended the place with a charming interior. The service was friendly and attentive. The food came quickly. The salads had a tad too much garlic. The lasagna was good with more than ample portions. The pizza was good, but not spectacular. A chosen desert...More

Cafe Lago is a go to place if you're looking for delicious, authentic Italian food in Seattle. Their Lasagna is one of the best in the city. We also shared the linguine which was really good. As always the service was very good/

We had a great time and the restaurant decor is warm and inviting with a modern flare. The food was very fresh and homemade. We definitely will be back. The service was right-on. We went about 8pm and things were winding down a bit.

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
