Take out lasagna in Seattle

I am providing an entree for a work party but won't have a lot of time to prepare. I am close to downtown and Queen Anne, and had in mind buying frozen lasagna from a place like Pasta & Co., DeLaurenti's or Eat Local. I would like your opinions-- which ones taste the best, or is there a better source that I am not thinking of? Thanks!

  1. I would probably go with Cafe Lago as my first choice, and Pasta & Co. as a second choice. I have not had the lasagna at Eat Local.

    1. If it must be lasagne, this will not suit, but at Delfino's, in U Village, just outside the front door of B Dalton, the freezer by the cash register has fresh-frozen deep-dish pizzas that bake at home just fine. A big one will set you back some ($20?) and is in pepperoni or spinach, which is mine...

      1. Agreed. Cafe Lago. No contest. Not located in downtown or Queen Anne - but it's nearby in Montlake. Call ahead to let them know how many people you want to feed. A bit pricey but well worth it - there's no lasagna like it in Seattle and it reheats very well. Last Friday we picked up a single order of their quite heavenly fresh pasta lasagna to take to a friend in the hospital who needed some seriously blissful food to nourish body and spirit. We couldn't think of anything in the entire city that would fit the bill better than Cafe Lago's lasagna. But, it's not a meaty, hearty lasagna, so if that's what you have in mind, Cafe Lago isn't it.

          If you haven't had Lago's lasagna, be forewarned, it's different.
          They use really thin noodles for the pasta part, and they use a really bright tomato sauce for it as well.

          I like it, but I know some that don't.
