Visited here for the first time with friends, and was pleasantly surprised with the inside of the restaurant as it was very Italian and cozy. There is an outside dining area that looked great for the summer evenings. Ordered the Gorgonzola bruschetta and calamari and both were OK at best with an unusual, unpleasant flavor to both. We ordered the... More

Waiter was friendly, attentive and (bonus) Italian. Just tried one dish, spaghetti carbonara, but it was good, not great, but good. View is nice. Drawback is that the interior of the restaurant is oddly laid out, doesn't have a great feel to it and there was a large TV on in the dining room.

Used Ubereats to have the food delivered. Tracked the delivery using the app on my phone. Delivery took the normal time so the Uber part worked. Pizza came cold and spaghetti hot. Pizza was for my two little girls. They were disappointed and hence, two stars for Vista Lago.

I couldn't help but return this summer for VL's seafood linguini. A truly savory dish with a uniquely herbal (and creamy) tomato flavor I can't write identify. My brother opted for fettucini (last year) and a chicken dish (this year) and was equally pleased both times.

As I write this, I'm craving the spaghetti carbonara all over again! My friends and I had gone there after a wonderful afternoon at Kirkland Uncorked and it was a great place to enjoy a meal while catching up. I normally order their linguine vongole but felt like something different so I ordered the spaghetti carbonara instead. And it did... More

This place is "around the back" and fortunately for us not as crowded as the places on the street side. We wandered in for a light lunch and some cold white wine. The patio was very cozy, the service good and we enjoyed our lunch very much.

They have all my favorite Italian dishes. They prepare them right. Service is fast and professional, and the outdoor seating is great.
