Met with a friend for lunch in the centre of Glasgow for one of our regular lunches. We usually meet up at a different restaurant each time but keep coming back to La Lanterna. The menu offers a wide enough selection to meet any requirement and you find yourself choosing from several attractive options. We both ordered the same dishes... More

As usual great Italian food, service and ambience. You always feels welcome and an individual in what is a very busy restaurant.

Staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the atmosphere was just perfect. A real Italian Gem in the heart of Glasgow. Highly... More

It was difficult to choose what we wanted from the very interesting menu but we eventually decided and everything we ate was absolutely delicious. The bread was good, the starters excellent, the mains delicious and even the mixed salad we shared was really fresh and delicious. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Will definitely go back as it was... More

A friend bought us a £50 voucher for our silver anniversary so we booked by telephone the previous week for 7pm. It all started to go wrong when we arrived and they couldn't find our booking. They managed to squeeze us in to the cramped restaurant next to a very loud table of six. Despite the fact they were annoying... More

My wife and I went for dinner last evening after reading high reviews for this establishment. Unfortunately not a happy story. You almost know from the start when a dining experience starts going bad and seems to carry on that way right to the end. We were seated at a table for 2 amongst larger groups of six or more....

This was our first visit, and we were delighted that we chose to eat here. Excellent Italian food in delightful authentic surroundings, served by welcoming and attentive staff. Special mention for the pennette alla barese and the zabaglione alla marsala, as well as the two free glasses of prosecco we were given for booking online. Prices were very reasonable, however...
