La Lanterna has got to be one of the best, authentic italian restaurants in Glasgow. From the always tasty food to the friendly staff and all very reasonably priced. Always welcoming and never disappointing, well worth a visit

Business time lunch for stressed office workers. Service was prompt and the lunchtime specials as good as ever This is a reliable food stop in a cozy authentic osteria which has a nice buzz without it being too noisy Wine selections very good and overall fairly priced.

Undoubtedly one of my favorite restaurants which is why we keep going back. Friendly and attentive management and staff no matter how busy it gets. The Saturday night menu is a must for selection and value for money. Also don't forget to check out the blackboard specials. A good wine list compliments.

I ordered cannelloni, a favourite Italian dish and one I have had many times, as a main course. When it was delivered to the table it was clearly very hot but... More

Considering it was my wife and her family's favourite restaurant I had high expectations, especially when I read reviews. However it was not worth the hype. I had the veal which was quite bland at not worth writing home about. My company for the evening all enjoyed ttheir meal and the carbonara did look nice. It may be that I... More
