It's official! The days are getting longer, daffodils are blooming and Via Lago Trattoria is planning our ever-popular Easter brunch…it must be spring! On Sunday March 31, the restaurant will be full of families eager to celebrate the holiday at our annual brunch.

To celebrate Easter, we feature a carving station with peppered filet and brown sugar glazed ham, an omelet and waffle station (think: waffles piled high with whipped cream and strawberries…the kids love that this counts as breakfast!). Next is the salad station complete with four choices, as you can’t eat your chocolate treats without a little green first: cucumber salad, a mixed green, a Caesar and cannellini bean salad. A pasta station includes three of our most popular pastas and parmesan mushroom risotto. Be sure not to [...]

After serving our butternut squash ravioli in its lovely amaretto cream sauce with caramelized walnuts as a weekend special, it has earned its place as one of our new dinner menu entrees at Via Lago Trattoria. Butternut squash has found its way on our regular pasta page right next to another popular new entrée: the Pappardelle Via Lago with short ribs. The wide pappardelle noodles are perfect to grab the rich Barolo wine sauce, which is full of tender short ribs, mushrooms and carrots. These two new pastas have been entrée specials on the weekends for some time and after numerous requests they have “made the cut!” You select the entrée of your choice and we will be happy to pair it up with an excellent wine selection from our wine room. We really do appreciate your input and as [...]
