I was skeptical about ordering the seared Ahi tuna with sesame and a miso drizzle from a predominantly Italian menu, but really wanted seafood. I wasn't disappointed - it was one best pieces of Tuna I have had including those at considerably more expensive Japanese restaurants in Boston, NYC and San Francisco. It was accompanied by a garlic saute Swiss... More

Our B and B host recommended this restaurant and I'm so glad he did! Restaurant is located on corner in "downtown" district. Large bar area and small dining area, but not too crowded on brisk fall evening during the week. Our first night there I had the rib eye special and my spouse had the stuffed chicken breast and both... More

Being from Brooklyn, we know Italian, and this is good. Locally sourced and fresh and delicious. One of our favs in the area.

Lago Trattoria is a large busy place near Lake Memphremagog, in downtown Newport. It offers mainly Italian fare – among the entrees was a delicious wild boar dish with tagliatelle. There are non-Italian dishes too, and one of us greatly enjoyed a roasted chicken breast stuffed with cheese and sausage. Also available: pizzas and sandwiches, and everything features local produce... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Lagos and highly recommend it to others visiting in the Northern Kingdom of Vt. The service and atmosphere are both outstanding. The menu has a nice variety of starters, entrees and the daily specials were more varied than at most restaurants. The value proposition was also good...not inexpensive but by no means overly...

This was our second annual visit while vacationing in the area and once again it was worth the trip. Our server was very attentive and even noticed a chip in the wine bottle we ordered and promptly got us a different bottle. We then ordered Nona's meatballs as an appetizer which normally comes with 3 meatballs but our server noticing... More

Absolutely superb food in a semi elegant setting but you do not have to dress up to enjoy the place. Best place in town for a first date or your 30th. anniversary. Super friendly staff, excellent wine collection and easy to find on main street in Newport. Love this place - Manfred Rieder

I grew up in an Italian family, not my own but my best friend's. I remember the ease in which Mrs. Scalzo cooked dinner...and the dinner we had reminded so much of Long Island and those Sunday's for dinner at the Scalzo's. I had a wedge salad to start with and it was very tasty! Then ordered a goat cheese... More

The setting is nice with exposed bricks and convenient in center of downtown. The selections were interesting and fancy, although almost trying too hard for our tastes. The meal was good, the portion size was huge. Service was good. Came highly recommended from our host. Didn't disappoint, but just didn't wow.

In the NEK you realize that service is not good. Our waiter obviously was a smoker, and when she arrived at the table, there was not doubt. She reeked of smoke, which is not good when considering dining choices. The food was certainly above average. My caprese salad had fabulous Italian Mozzarella., but gigantic heirloom tomatoes, making it an appetizer... More
