“elegant yet simple Mediterranean & Italian fare”
Lago Trattoria translates literally from the Italian as ‘lake restaurant,’ an apt description, as Lago Trattoria is located in Newport, Vermont, on the shores of international Lake Memphremagog. But a literal translation does little to explain the highly rated dining experience found each night of the week at Lago Trattoria. At first bite, the simple yet tasteful Mediterranean and Italian fare lets diners realize they have transcended the status quo.From the varied and ever-changing Italian and Mediterranean menu to the tasteful, relaxed atmosphere of high-ceilings with slow-turning fans, live plants, comfortable seating for sixty, with warm-weather seating for an additional twenty-five outside, and tastefully decorated with pottery and artwork brought back from the Richardi’s many trips to Italy–Lago Trattoria is celebrated far and wide as much more than a place to eat, it is a dining experience unparalleled in New England.In warm weather, Lago Trattoria offers a singular outdoor dining experience–the sidewalk becomes an alfresco extension of the restaurant, complete with umbrellas, ficus trees, and comfortable seating for twenty-five, and views of the lake.The service is second to none. There are twelve people on staff. Three work in the kitchen and the rest are there to ensure a top-shelf dining experience.Indeed, Lago Trattoria has become one of the most popular eateries in the entire Northeast since chef and owner Frank Richardi and his wife and co-owner, Michelle, opened their doors in 2001. Since that time, thousands of curious diners have sampled the elegant yet simple Mediterranean and Italian fare and become die-hard devotees, eager for a return visit.
