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.

The place had a really nice ambience. We were given a table that was secluded from the main hall. The service was quick and waiters were attentive. The food was delicious especially the Salmon, with a generous serving size.

I ordered Salmon which was delicious and the others that got the filet were very pleased. Dessert was great too. The wait staff... More

From the street, it's rather uninspiring; part of a strip mall. But when you walk in, it's very elegant. The staff was very attentive, service was top notch, food and wine was excellent. Happy hour is 4 to 8...which makes it feel much less rushed...and the $4 pizza will fill up a normal human. We will be back!

A group of 8 visited here for a business dinner, and everyone was very pleased. The waiter and those assisting him were attentive, made sure our waters were full, our drinks were fresh, and that we had everything we needed. The waiter was knowledgeable and made great recommendations. He first brought us each a tasting dish which featured a jumbo... More

My friends and I wanted to try a different restaurant before our movie. We decided to share a few salads to start and the chef created special plates with the salads split out amongst each of us. I wished I took a photo... beautifully plated. I saw on their website they served Bucatini Carbonara but it wasn't on the menu.... More

I have eaten here 3 times and the food is excellent! All of their soups are homemade and delicious. Today I had the club sandwich which is anything but ordinary-very fresh ingredients and comes with a choice of sides. The pasta salad side was a delicious meal all by itself. This restaurant also has a terrific wait staff and deserves... More

Had this dish last night and was disappointed. Pasta undercooked and chewy, sauce too tangy and the onion slices seemed unneccessary. That said, the salad and the tiramisu were delicious, and the service and atmosphere were fabulous. I would eat there again, but would choose another entree.

We have been wanting to try Il Bel Lago and so glad we did! The food is exceptional, elegantly presented, and the pasta is homemade! It is truly authentic Italian! I had the President Raegan Bowtie Pasta with salmon -- so good!!! The excellent service needs to be commended, definitely 5 star! I go to Italy often, and Il Bel... More
