Cafe Lago has two things going for it. Most importantly, it has great italian food and a top notch wait staff. It is also located right around the corner from us in Montlake which makes it easy to pop in. Their handmade pasta is unlike any I have had - light and perfectly cooked. The prices are pretty good given the quality and service. I took my favorite girls their for Valentine's Day last night - we loved it.
Next time you are near Montlake for dinner, I recommend stopping in.
