A colleague and I had an air b and b one block from this fabulous restaurant. We took five fine dinners over 10 nights. We sampled nearly every item on the amazing menu. Try their Carol gardens old fashion. Nothing like it anywhere.

Cafe lago was excellent! They had a great selection of wine, pizza, and other Italian dishes. I would highly recommend the lasagna. It was definitely the best I’ve ever had! The service was also wonderful!

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 were treated to dinner at Café Lago by our daughter & son-in-law who knew the restaurant from previous visits. It was quite noisy but that is par for popular places which this is. My agnolotti with a sauce I do not remember was outstanding....More

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 hadn't been to Cafe Lago for quite a few years, but recently went back for our anniversary dinner celebration. It was as good as we remembered - or maybe better. We had the antipasti and the eggplant - both incredibly good. Such variety on...More
