Our group tried several dishes including the specials and we were delighted with all of them. It is very crowded and space is very tight. Make a reservation - or have your hotel do it.

My wife and I visited La Lanterna on a Thursday lunchtime. We’ve been on quite a few occasions either “pre theatre” or “full menu” but this was our first lunchtime visit. The short menu is varied and very reasonably priced – 2 courses for £12 or 3 for £15 but the most pleasing thing is the fact that neither the... More

This apart... More

We were staying overnight in Glasgow and had booked a table for 2 at La Lanterna as it was my husband's birthday. He doesn't like a fuss so we didn't mention this at the time of booking. We chose the set menu for our dinner and we weren't disappointed. The food was very nicely presented and extremely tasty. The service... More
