Great food, nice atmosphere, traditional italian fair. I wasn't paying so I didn't look to closely at all the prices, but ordered a Caprese salad app that was delightful. Risotto special was great, but not always an offering. It worked well for a business dinner that was informal, for a working dinner you may need better lighting. For a romantic... More

Last visit was great but we had an excellent waiter. The one on our most recent visit was inattentive and seemed very stressed.

Was lovely evening but the food is not outstanding and is over priced. There is nothing outstanding about the menu and the food was just okay.

This is my 2nd bad experience after writing rave reviews. The waiter today was terrible-uninformed and lazy. I asked what comes on the club and he simply said you know it is a club sandwich. I have several allergies which is why I asked. I then asked about the bread it is served on and he said just regular bread.... More

Delicious Italian fare with attentive service. Lobster ravioli and veal chop (served with truffle sauce or made into Parmesan) are my favorites, but haven't had a pasta or other entree that wasn't very good. No need to go to "The Hill" to get fine Italian fare. Expensive, but worth it. Also, Il Bel Lago has a nice (and long) happy... More

We stopped in for lunch. We had kale soup that was very tasty. I had Rigatoni Oprah and my wife had lasagna. They served warm bread and it was a very good meal. I had a very good tiramisu for dessert and she enjoyed excellent carrot cake. A little pricey but worth it

We are new to the area and had heard this was the place to go for a nice Italian dinner. We were not disappointed! It was definitely fine dining with great service from our waiter, Ray. The staff was friendly and attentive without being stiff and hovering, as is the case in most formal restaurants. The food was delicious. I... More

Just there for lunch.....nice atmosphere...good service. Appetizers were great.....However, the lunch special was not cooked appropriately. The pasta was real hard and chewy.....Not sure how that happens.

Don't be fooled this restaurant is located in a strip mall as it is fine dining for sure. Really great appetizers and desserts and the Italian influence is throughout the entire menu. Sometimes it can get loud in the dining room, but the ambiance is very cozy. Great Italian wine list too. Would highly recommend for any occassion.
