We were only in Sorrento for 4 nights but ate here twice and we never do that! We would have gone three times if we weren't so worried of missing anything! Then we regretted not going the third time after a not so nice meal elsewhere! Varied menu at great prices!

Recommended by our hotel as it is under same ownership. Unfortunately it wasn't very good overall. The mozzarella and tomato were bland. The vegetable soup was great. The fish was overcooked. The warm octopus salad was room temperature (I saw them bring it out with my soup then take it in realizing it was my main course - and my... More

Food is very high quality here and not overly expensive. However, this is something that can be said about many of the restaurants in Sorrento. What makes this special?, the service is exceptional. Very friendly and extremely efficient with just the right amount of time for ordering, between courses, etc.. It is also the only place in Sorrento that a... More

We traveled to Sorrento in august with our family of 8. After two nights of so-so food my wife and I came across La Lanterna. We decided to give it a try and were very glad we did. The food and service here were the best we had in Italy. The waiters were very friendly and courteous. The caprese salad... More

very smart restaurant with reasonable prices and good quality food - pasta was particularly good. We had the spaghetti with clams and cannelloni which was really good.

I have been walking past this little place for a lot of years but my partner liked the look of the menu so we stopped. Thrilled we did. We shared the Mussels to start and were truly amazed at the size and the wonderful flavour of the sauce. My partner had the special Sole and it was the best I... More

Great personal attention to our order. The waiter was fantastic. The fish was prepared table side, and couldn't be better. Plenty of locals, and lots of families.

So while this location may seem like a tourist trap, we ate all over Sorrento and this was one of our groups favorite! The restaurant is cozy and ethnic. Very comfortable. Wood fired pizzas were amazing. The arugula salads were all excellent! The gnocchi was very good as was the catch of the day. So flavorful. The verde gnocchi with... More

Ate at la Lanterna two nights during our stay in Sorrento; without a doubt the best meals we have had while in Italy. A contemporary take on great Italian food. The fresh fish of the day was outstanding. Welcome staff and waiters really couldn't have been more friendly or helpful.
