About Il Lago
Welcome to our family owned and run restaurant. Located on the Lake Almanor Peninsula just outside the Lake Almanor Country Club, we’ve been at the same location serving homemade Italian food for almost 20 years. Started by my parents, Art and Barb and using Nonni’s recipe's our restaurant focuses on simple Italian dishes, savory pizzas and delicious sandwich’s. We are open for lunch and dinner through-out the year. We also have a full service bar and a large outdoor patio during the warmer months. So call ahead for reservations, drop in and dine, or order take-out.The Tantardino's relocated to Chester from Los Angeles and opened the family restaurant- complete with a full service bar and outdoor patio.
While some of the most popular dishes associated with the Italian culture include a tempting slice of pizza and a heaping plate of pasta, there is much more to the world of Italian cooking. The changing of the times has also influenced Italian food, as the meals served in the pre-Roman era possess both similarities and differences in the cuisine of today.
