When Lago opened in April 1991, the upscale Italian restaurant quickly established a reputation as having perhaps the only menu in Los Angeles to focus on the cuisine of Bellagio on Lake Como in Northern Italy.

Locanda del Lago in downtown Santa Monica turns 22 years old this month and the restaurant is excited and ready to celebrate.

Starting this Friday, April 5, through Thursday, April 25, Lago will

be offering a special anniversary menu in honor of 22 years in business

in Santa Monica.

General manager Megan Sheehy said 22 years in the restaurant business

was an eternity and the restaurant was happy to show its appreciation.

“We want to say thank you to our long time customers, new clientele,

neighborhood colleagues, and anyone else who wants to dine with us by

preparing a menu that goes back to '91 in flavor and price,” Sheehy

said.

Sheehy said the restaurant would offer the special two-course menu for just $22.

“In honor of our 22nd birthday, Chef Gianfranco created this

wonderful menu based on the traditional flavors of our hometown Bellagio

on Lake Como," Sheehy said. "Utilizing the freshest organic produce purchased from the

local Santa Monica Farmer’s Markets in conjunction with sustainable

protein while highlighting the unique flavors of the season, Chef

recreates a typical meal you would find on the lake.”
