Club Lago has been a cornerstone to the River North neighborhood since 1952. Gus Lazzerini migrated from Tuscany, Italy to the United States in the 1930s. He opened his own restaurant, but when the building where Club Lago is now located became available, he closed his restaurant and moved into that space. Originally opened by Gus and Ida Lazzerini, the restaurant was then passed down to Francesco Nardini who, in 1997, passed the restaurant on to his sons GianCarlo and Guido. GianCarlo and Guido are third generation family owners who are committed to carrying on Club Lagoís legacy in Chicago. Club Lago will be celebrating its 65th year in business in 2017 proving that their authentic and hearty Italian cuisine is timeless. One of Club Lagoís staples is their homemade sauce. Club Lagoís owners are from Northern Italy so their tomato and meat sauce is created in that style being thicker, chunkier, and less sweet with more garlic and parsley than sauce made in Southern Italian cooking. Their sauce is so delicious that it elevates every dish from great to amazing. One of Club Lagoís most popular dishes is their Parmigiana that can be made with veal, chicken, or eggplant. Their Chicken Vesuvio has also gotten rave reviews and has garnered the reputation as one of the best Chicken Vesuvioís in all of Chicago. Club Lago also offers daily specials that range anywhere from fish dishes to new pasta creations they are experimenting with in order to pick the most successful ones to go on the regular menu. Club Lagoís steak and chops are also very popular amongst customers. You really canít go wrong ordering at Club Lagoís since every dish ther is to pick from is so delicious. Along with their incredible menu, Club Lago also has a full bar and a compact, yet wonderful, wine list. Most of Club Lagoís wines are imported from Italy, but there are other varieties on the list as well. Club Lago does offering on-site and off-site catering upon request.
