Food tasted like it came out of a can. Expensive for poor quality and taste. Will not come back again.

My wife and I stopped in about a month ago for a drink. We both had such a great feeling from the gentleman that was behind the bar. I believe it was the owner. We decided right then and there that we would come back for dinner. We had dinner on Wednesday 2/19/20. We were greeted and sat promptly. Our server was fantastic! He let us space out our meal beautifully. We always like to relax with a cocktail before we open the menu. When we did order, we were blown away. My wife had the special of the day which was a chicken breast in a lemon / garlic sauce with capers with a side of pasta. It was fantastic. I ordered a sandwich called “the Guido”. It was Italian beef, sausage and meatballs with roasted peppers. It was enormous and incredibly delicious. I took half home. Food was great! Service was great! But what put it over the top for me was the warm, welcoming, comfortable feeling we experienced here. I grew up on the southwest side of Chicago and it reminds me of a neighborhood gem from my youth. My only regret is that this was our first meal here and I am a lifelong Chicagoan. We can not wait to come back. We LOVED Club Lago!!!!!!

Experience needs to be better when you first walk in. We thought we were walking into a closed off party since nobody was talking to us haha. Great personalities in there tho and great food and atmosphere. Would come back!

I've been coming here for a reasonably priced and high quality lunch for a few times a month. Can't beat this place for from-scratch Italian at this price point.

This is a very good, old-school neighborhood restaurant. Casual atmosphere that has been maintained by the owners since it was first opened about 50 years ago. Always a stop of ours when we are in Chicago.

Club Lago feels friendly and neighborly, like home if you had a big family over, some watching the football game, others celebrating a birthday. It is really too noisy for people who want to talk. The food and the service were very good.

Classical and simple dishes like your Italian grandmother would make. Rich meat sauce. Decent wine list. Casual dining and a good place to catch a game at the bar. Definitely a nice neighborhood feel.

We loved the neighborhoody, kitschy ambience. Friendly, helpful service and great fish and pastas. Only complaint was that the fish was too short although it was broiled perfectly.

We loved Guido who was bartender, meeter/greeter,and cook. We were nine people and never felt encumbered by being a large group. The food was great with a large selection for all our different taste buds. We will be back.

We had a reservation for 6 people confirmed. Upon arrival there wasn't a table reserved and the entire restaurant was filled with a 50 plus person party. It was so disappointing and conversation was not an option even shouting to the person across the table. They should close the restaurant if they reserve the main dining area. I am sure the employees were working their hardest but with the amount of people in there service was mediocre at best. The food was the ONLY redemption for this place.
I would be willing to try it again only if there wasnt an obnoxiously loud party in the back area. It really ruined our whole experience☹

The service was OUTSTANDING!! We were a party of 8 and the owner brought complementary dessert to our table at the end of our meal. It was a very laid back and friendly atmosphere. It wasn’t the best Italian I’ve had, but was good.

We love trying to find the Mom and Pop type restaurants when we travel. Club Lago is laid back and we felt welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The guy (whom I think may have been the owner) was sure to greet us and let us know he’d be with us as soon as he could step away from the bar. The service was amazing. The food was definitely not something that came out of the freezer and went straight to the microwave. Home cooked with love. We will definitely be back.

We recently “discovered” this long time neighborhood restaurant and have enjoyed many dinners there in the last few months. The atmosphere is lively and friendly. We are always greeted warmly and seated right away. I love the food selections, especially the chicken parmesan. The portions are generous and the drinks well made. Club Lago is definitely worth checking out.

Very small, and tables are very close together. Waiters kept running into our tables and chairs, and the person sitting behind me kept hitting my chair with theirs. Not much room. The food was good, not great.

Hadn’t been there in awhile and no surprise, it was as good as I remember. The service is a little on the slow side but the ambience is so wonderful and the staff is so friendly it was fun just hanging out. Food was terrific, no skimping on the drinks, great value overall. This will become a regular for me and my wife. Real throwback to mid 20th century Chicago. Make reservations because it can be busy although it’s not a well known tourist place.

We came for a pre-show dinner. The food was delicious (especially the daily special) and loved our waiter. We’ve been coming here for a long time (our 14 year old son finished the Quido 😲). A favorite go to before any Chicago Theater show.

They will not honor the reservation time. We were ignored from our reserved seats time for over 45 minutes shined on then sat directly in front of the women's restroom entrance. The food took forever was mediocre and the staff was rude to our children. Horrible treatment am shocked.

This is old school Chicago. The setting may not appeal to everyone, but there is a charm to it. The food is superb. The veal dishes are the best in Chicago. I have tried for years to duplicate the pasta sauce. I guess I will just have to keep coming back. If you are visiting Chicago - Don't miss Club Lago!

I have been going here for 25+ years and the food is simply outstanding. Do not miss the chicken parm. Most of the staff is the same staff that has been there for years and years. That tells you a lot about this place and how its run. Top notch all the way!

When you walk into the restaurant, it is very dated and small. The service was fabulous. A lot of regulars seem to frequent the restaurant. That says a lot about a place. There were five of us and we ALL enjoyed our food. All five ordered something different and all thought it was delicious. Would definitely go there again!

It's been a few years since I was a semi-regular here with my office only blocks away for 20 years. I took it for granted back then and have since wished I went even more. How nice it was to return earlier this week with a good friend for a 'nice Italian meal'. This is a neighborhood restaurant. Don't take this wrong — service is friendly, prompt and very attentive — but CL is not trying to impress anyone. They're not looking to win you over. They are not responding to market trends. For me, the best word for this restaurant is 'Authentic'. Truly authentic not 'marketing authentic'. They are exactly who they're supposed to be. Hence, my 5 Stars across the board. It's a very cool, if not fancy, interior with a neighborhood bar that says, "Come, sit down". My pally had a beautiful plate of Linguine and White Clam Sauce, a classic there. I had the Chicken Piccante special – surprisingly delicate and extremely flavorful. Toss in two (we were enjoying ourselves and had an Uber) bottles of an astutely selected, wonderful bottle of Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico and we had a great time. All priced generously affordable, btw. Saluti, Club Lago... cent'anni!!
