Club Lago Restaurant Reviews List

Club Lago Restaurant

Opening its doors in 1952, Club Lago has anchored the corner of Superior and Orleans since before the neighborhood River North grew up around it. Serving classic Northern Italian specialties from the Garfagnana Valley in Tuscany to steaks, chops and signature sandwiches too, the Lago's staff will recommend the perfect entree for whatever mood you're in.

Third generation owners GianCarlo and Guido are pouring the wine or serving the veal--it's a family affair. Time warp back to the fifties with a glass of chianti in a plush booth in the bar or hold court at one of the tables in the back; Club Lago's ideal for the first date, a meal before the theater or a game, or whenever you're looking to relax to great food and be a regular in a family joint.

Some call it "retro," we call it home. Benvenuti, come on in!

"Fried calamari was excellent so we had high hopes! Baked clams had an odd spice mixed in the breading. The linguine with white clam sauce was awful, inedible in fact. It was a thick gravy type sauce with no flavor whatsoever. There was more sauce than noodles and no sight of real clams anywhere. The veal was okay at best. Not good, not bad! The cannoli was very average too, seemed to be lacking a crucial flavor though! We live in the neighborhood but our first time eating there. We're going to stick to fried calamari and drinks!"

"I've been going to Club Lago for 25 years . We love the food, always friendly , casual dining , good wines. Guido and Giancarlo are always pleasant , very accommodating , hard working owners and staff. A local Chicago gem. There's always
laughter among the patrons . You must try it!

"The food was of a very poor quality and preparation. Clams and linguine was a mass of thick tasteless white sauce and the bake clams were nothing but old clams with mostly bread crumbs and margarine. The service was horrible with a table of apparent regulars next to us receiving service, i.e.more cheap wine and buds, while we were mostly ignored. I have been here several times before and it was always marginal, but never this bad. never again."

"Classic Italian -- can't go wrong with any menu selection.
The ambiance is fantastic -- old school and authentic. Great bar.

"This is a charming remnant of Old Chicago & the family-owned restaurant has been at this location since the 50's; the vinyl covered booths & original bar add to the "retro" feel - when they serve you the house chianti in a water glass, you know you've come home to authentic "Mom & Pop Italian - we LOVED being here - had a terrific eggplant parmesan and my husband had the calamari linguine ... there's a framed picture of the original Mayor Daley over the bar - so make a reservation and enjoy Club Lago ..."

"Great food, classic Italian dishes. Ambiance was good, however a bit cramped. Overall solid and affordable choice for Italian downtown."

"Club Lago is a nice neighborhood location in the midst of all the trendy River North places - and this is a good thing. You can get a good meal for a decent price. A great place to go if your focus is to have a nice evening socializing with friends or family. Staff is very friendly, its a welcoming atmosphere."
