Our Story

Benvenuti dalla Familiga Salerno

Lago is a restaurant concept that deeply connects to our family roots. We combine family values, traditions, and our love of food, then bring it all to your table. Family is at the core of our foundation for everything we do. In fact, way back in August 2006, we opened Lago in Tremont on the same day our daughter Sofia was born! We celebrated throwing our family into the busyness of the all-encompassing restaurant lifestyle, and what a ride it's been!  We began in the Flats and we felt it was only right to bring Lago back to our family's roots; so in 2013, we built Lago East Bank and continued our wild ride. Nicole and I, our four children, and our devoted staff welcome you and invite you to be a part of our family. At Lago, our guests are everything!

Tradition + Innovation

From Sicilian roots, Chef Fabio's command of the kitchen has transformed into a truly innovative menu that never sacrifices on the traditional principles of great food: fresh & nutritious ingredients, meticulous attention to flavor, and family to share the experience. We are passionate about taking the food we love, preparing it in new ways, and sharing it with you and your loved ones in an atmosphere you can't get anywhere else.

Everyone Deserves Top Shelf

At Lago, one thing is for certain: Everyone is a VIP!  There is no bottom shelf. Everyone starts at the top! We have carefully selected from the best spirits available to us, and we often find a way to make “impossible-to-get" items available in our market. Lago prides itself on a carefully-crafted and specialized beer list, not to mention the modern wine list you cannot find anywhere else! All of our fine wines by-the-bottle are also available by the glass or half carafe. Our guests never have to compromise – if it’s on our shelf, it’s available to you by the glass.
We want to treat you to the best, because you deserve it. Saluté!
