Our friends invited us for our party of 4; seated and waited on almost immediately. Friends knew personnel so we had excellent service by waiter and meals were done in a timely fashion; food would be rated very good and no complaints.

Not what expected. Very poor quality food. Had calamari and Cesar salad which was the worst one I've ever had. The server was not very friendly too.

I met a few of my coworkers after work. The service was great, but the food was just average. While we didn't sit out in the patio, it looked like it had great views.

On our first visit we found the food to be good, the service to be great, but the prices are a little high.

We actually had a ten dollar off coupon that had come in the mail, had talked about going to this restaurant many times. Prior to going had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and it was a little leery, but went with low expectations. There were four of us and we all loved our meals, one had the seafood fettucine,...

Relaxing restaurant to go with friends or on a date. Excellent Italian food, but a little pricey. Nice outdoor seating and occasional live entertainment. Good happy hour.

Have given up on expecting a really good dining experience, and hoped for just a decent one. But after several tries, and experiencing really poor service and food that's just not a decent value for the price, it's just not going to happen at Al Lago. Even if I avoid the poor service by ordering my meal to go, the... More

Ate here for the first time. It's in the 90's so dined in. My wife had the tenderloin sautee and I played it safe with the pollo Parmesan. Both were cooked very good. The wine was good but the waitress was not very helpful in the wine selection. She did spend allot of time going over the menu though. We... More

We go here frequently with friends. When the weather is nice the deck is awesome. It faces a little cove in Lake Tapps. Their menu is extensive and their wine list has a lot of choices. We have had a couple of parties there and always receive exceptional service. My favorite waitress is Shannon. She's the best.

Al Lago Ristorante has potential but the food lacks flavor and texture. I had the charred sausage and spaghetti and the flavors didn't work well together. The other issue was the texture was consistent with spaghetti that comes out of a can. The server we had was inexperienced and it showed. More than once she interrupted our conversation to tell...
