Love the location - up a narrow road and by a lake! The waiter was very helpful and attentive as we were the first to arrive. Food was average. I had lamb chops. They are small and we're a bit well done. I wouldn't recommend this place, but wouldn't eliminate it from my list of "OK" local spots.

We visited for dinner and we were only one of three other families in the restaurant! It was a beautiful setting overlooking the lake and I can imagine it would be great for a wedding reception but not as a restaurant, too large and impersonal! One waiter who was doing everything it seemed. We ordered lamb chops for three people... More

Visited last night for dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. I have no hesitation recommending the venue. The setting is just beautiful and the service is excellent, very friendly and attentive staff. We ate outside and the property and views are a pleasure to spend time at.

The lake view is interesting. The food is average. As there are hundreds of excellent restaurants in the area it wouldn't be in my priorities to visit it again.

If you're looking for a nice location for a wedding or a ceremony this is a great place. Nicely located in the middle of the Tuscany hills, it's a perfect setting for a nice lunch.

We dined at IL Lago on Friday 26th April 2014, the last night of our Tuscan holiday and dearly wished that we had found it sooner. The food, the staff, the ambience and lakeside setting were all perfect, We are tempted to repeat the holiday just so that we can go there again

We heard a lot of good about this place so we went there quite early one night in summer with our young kids. Playground pretty basic. Dining room very strangely laid out, like a wedding room and we were seated at a large round table seated for maybe 8 or 10 and with another couple at adjoining table. Atmosphere very... More

It looks rather like a wedding only venue, but is a fully functioning restaurant. the waiting staff were attentive and helpful, even bringing us dishes to try that they thought we might like. Tip - the fish menu is amazing! Everything was good and made the walk there and back well worth it!

Set by a lake, the views were incredible. We went twice and had the same delightful waiter on both occasions. Food lovely (recommened the fish medly) but this appears to be primarily a wedding venue, so the wine list seems to comprise of what was left over from the last wedding!
