Menu items include Crudo Elegante, a raw seafood dish with fruits and vegetables, and Tonno, tuna paired with seasonally changing citrus. The Piatti Grandi offers guests heartier selections including Piedmontese beef tenderloin with gorgonzola cheese, and the Bistecca one-pound ribeye trimmed with sea salt.

Bellagio’s master mixologist Ricardo Murcia created Lago’s cocktail menu. Selections include the Rosso Bellini, which has a caramel nest holding a golden raspberry over a mixture of Hangar One Raspberry, Toschi Fragoli Wild Strawberry Liqueur, prosecco, raspberry syrup and fresh lemon juice. The Sgroppino cocktail has a frozen sphere comprised of prosecco, lemoncello, lemon sorbet and cocoa butter, sitting atop a scoop of lemon sorbet. 

The restaurant’s wine menu offers 750 bottles from highly sought-after labels including Sassicaia and Gaja, as well as small production Italian varietals like Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. The collection also has a selection of wines from vineyards in California and Oregon.

Lago is chef Serrano's third restaurant in Las Vegas, and is located off the casino floor next to Hyde Bellagio.
