Great drink and food specials for happy hour and the service is great. Also great place for lunch- we always receive our food quickly as they understand most there are on a lunch break with limited time.

Food is amazing (Margherita pizza so good for lunch). Speaking of which, they are a fine dining restaurant open for lunch, which is a plus. Friendly staff, and easy access from I-270.

great menue, great service. Chef Frank is the best. Love the Pasta, seafood and Veal Chops. Carmelo is in the front of the house and knows how to make his guests feel at home.

We dined at Il Bel Lago on a Saturday evening. The restaurants was not busy when we arrived. We were first seated at a table close to the door. It was a cold evening with the wind blowing in, so we asked to be moved to a table further from the door. We were next seated at a table next to the kitchen, where there was a lot of noise coming from the squeaky door,so we asked to be moved again. Finally, the third table was acceptable. The restaurant itself is nicely appointed and gives a nice Italian feel. There was live music in the background that added to the ambiance. The food was good, except for the lasagna, which had a wine tast to the sauce that I didn't care for. The service was not up to expectations. We often times found ourselves looking for out waiter - whether it was to originally order, or to send back the wrong appetizer, or to order dessert or to get our check after the meal. The dinner took over two hours from start to finish, which was longer than we had planned. Could have been much shorter if our waiter had been attentive.

I really enjoy Il Bel Lago. It surprises you with its location being in a more corporate area. Seems like the bar is a nice place for 50 and older singles to mingle and listen to music on the weekends. Waitstaff is fine, a few odd ducks but not bad service. Food is always good. Love the salads and usually get the "Reagan Bowtie pasta..since I don't eat fish they are good enough to make it with grilled chicken and broccolli its amazing, hot light alfredo sauce..its so good its been impossible for me to order anything else. I have had friends that have ordered many other dishes all with equal quality and taste. Very fresh, homemade high end italian dining. You wont be disappointed. Reservation recommended
