Cafe Lago welcomes Chef Lauren Thompson

Lauren Thompson joins Café Lago after ten years as Chef-de-Cuisine at Cafe Juanita. The arrival of chef Thompson will begin a fresh chapter for the beloved restaurant. When Café Lago owner Carla Leonardi met Thompson, she was struck by their shared respect for the simplicity of Italian cuisine and cravings for local produce, cheeses, and meats. Leonardi, notes, “This is a rebirth all around. Lauren is incredibly gifted and has put fresh eyes on all we do. Having her lead the Lago kitchen is a dream come true. She is bringing renewed energy into our world by respecting our Italian roots and keeping the dishes our customers love while simultaneously elevating Lago.”

2024 Makes 34 Years of Cafe Lago

Thank you to everyone for sticking by us these past 34 years! We’ve been able to keep ourselves alive because of this fantastic community. We are happy to help make memories for you and your family.

Cook at Home Lasagna

We are offering a limited number of whole-pan takeaway lasagnas. These lasagnas require at least two days' notice by emailing carla@cafelago.com. Whole Classic Lasagna (meatless) for 8 is $130, with Bolognese $140. Half Classic Lasagna for 4 is $70, with Bolognese $75. The lasagna requires an hour and a half in your oven at 350 degrees. It comes with tomato sauce to be heated on the stovetop after plating and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese to finish. You can add other Cafe Lago favorites to the order, such as Antipasti Platters, Pomodori, Meatballs, Lemon Tart, and Chocolate Truffle Cake. Let me know. I'm happy to help.

$12 Pizza For The People!

Every Monday night until further notice, all the wood-fired pizzas (and Gnocchi VTC) are $12. We'll be open from 5-9:30 pm, and there are rules: reservations are encouraged, a maximum of six guests per table, one pizza per person, dine-in only, no takeaway, and be prepared for long wait times for Monday pizza. It gets busy!
