The restaurant was recommended to us but the food tasted like it had been reheated and not very flavourful.

We enjoyed our lunch there. Fresh and well prepared seafood. Nice staff and service. If you are not on budget, this is a good place to eat when visiting Riomaggiore.

Came here by chance when looking for dinner with a view. Surly service (very unusual in Italia) but very good food and, sitting on the terrace outside, a great view of the harbour. We enjoyed our food but didn't linger.

When other places were closing post-lunch, La Lanterna remained open (they have a sign advertizing that), allowing us to have lunch later than norm. From our table, we had a very good view of the lagoon and the path towards it - we are into people-watching, so that was a positive. The service was more on an indifferent side, and... More

Everything was fantastic! Service magnificent, as was the food! My girlfriend is not much of a seafood lover and she adored the food here! It is so fresh and completely normally priced. I am getting a warm felling in my heart now when I write about this restaurant :-) And we came here solely by accident and at first only... More

Great meals and fine wines at very reasonable cost. The fish, pasta and pizza were all top notch. Location right off the Marina could not be beat.

La Lanterna came highly recommended, but was our least favorite meal in CT in 5 days there. My partner ate linguine alla vongole or anything near it at every chance she got. This was the only restaurant in Italy we encountered sand in the clams. Really disappointing. View was awesome as we had a table reserved for us on the... More

On our last night in Riomaggiore we ate at La Lanterna. The food was good, price was very reasonable and the service was great. We were not rushed at all like we had been at Enoteca Dau Cila. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

I can reconfirm the comments of the prior reviewers about the customer service here, it is truly bad at the beginning, although it improved later on (maybe in correlation with the disapproving looks coming from our table)... The food was quite good and enjoyable though, fresh seafood pasta and main dishes.
