    Took some out of town family to our favourite local restaurant, and they commented that they could see why we like it so much. We were initially going to have just pizzas and salad, but the menu was so appealing that we ended up doing three course, including excellent desserts. Even so, it was still great value. Very happy with everything, and will be back again soon.

    The staff were friendly and welcoming. The restaurant was nice and cosy, great atmosphere. The food was overall okay. The pasta and risotto could be presented better, the risotto was served on a plate. The desserts were delicious and presented beautifully

    Sloooooooow service. Arrived hungry and service was so slow (6 course degustation) that left hungry. Dishes were ok, some really good, but 30 to 45 min wait between each miniscule course was ridiculous... Maybe a ploy to get you to drink more I don't know, but after being there for over 3 hours, decided to skip desert as simply had enough!

    We took our cousins from Switzerland at the restaurant and we had a great time. Everyone was pleased. The wine was excellent and the meals were very tasty indeed. We have been coming to this restaurant for many years and will continue to do so.

    The Food was nice husband loved the Agnolotti, and the young girl serving was good through we felt rushed. Tables are too close together all you can hear are other peoples conversations and not the people at your table. Understand it's popular but this dampened the evening.

    Great location and food, but very noisy because of the tiled floor.

    We enjoyed the meal and friendly service. However, it was very noisy and we had an elderly hearing impaired person with us. It is not suitable for someone who does not cope well with noise.

    My 1st time to Il lago at NorWest Lakeside. Excellent lakeside alfresco dining place in the north west suburb of Castle Hill, perfect for a sunny weekend. The food though is a bit ordinary like any neighborhood joint. I think the 9+ points rating has to do the atmosphere. Or, perhaps it is the best you can find in the Hills district. Does it worth to drive 50min from CBD just for the food ? Probably not for me.

About the restaurant

Fine dining on the water This well-loved and special Northern Italian restaurant always exceeds your expectations when it comes to the delicious food on offer and the high quality of service. Head Chef Steven Yeomans has a great array of food which you can enjoy either outside on the decking overlooking the lake (Il Lago literally means ‘The Lake’), or inside the sophisticated restaurant with large bay windows and simple yet classy décor. A favourite with the business crowd, the daily lunch specials are served up quickly and with finesse. If you have a little more time, why not enjoy a proper degustation menu or consider Il Lago for your next function as the restaurant holds up to 115 people for work functions, weddings or any occasion you want to share with friends and family. Start with some delectable white anchovies, or some housemade hot salame. For entrée, feast on some quail with sage, cauliflower and prosciutto, or maybe some specially prepared baby snapper fillets with fregola, saffron, prawns and lemon mascarpone. Best dish: Slow-cooked lamb rump
