A local recommended this restaurant and we were so impressed that we returned 2 nights later. The house red wine was from Montefalco and was great for 8 Euros for a liter. Good menu with specials and we mostly ordered the specials. The staff was friendly. Our waitress remembered use and remembered to give us special wine glasses. Most of... More

Good and cheap restaurant. You can taste the tradition food without to fear the addition at the end. Appear to be in a family. I will come back to test the other choices on the menu. Slurp!

We visit Spoleto every year and hadn't visited La Lanterna yet. I'm so glad we did! The strangozzi al tartufo was so delicious and fresh! It's truffle season, and I'm a happy, happy person! Fresh made pasta makes ALL the difference. The staff was friendly and service was good, although my salad and pasta arrived at the same time, yet... More

Excellent food and service, best strangozzi ever. Had a patient employee explain to kids she learned from japanese origami books how to prepare all dish cloths/ serviettes differently. Ours was a very beautiful table. Great overall experience.

This restaurant was recommended but not quite sure why, it was just OK. We ordered a plate of cold meats to share which were nice, especially with the honey and cheese. The strangozzi pasta with tomato sauce was a bit ordinary although my tagliatelle with mushrooms was very nice. My husband ordered the pork skewer and that's exactly what he... More

Good food, friendly service, no complaints. It seemed it was a place frequented mostly by locals. However, it seems that when something is in season, all restaurants have the same dish.

We ate here several times during our time in Spoleto. I had a mushroom pasta, a spinach and mushroom ravioli, and strangozzi spoletina. My husband tried several lamb and pork dishes. Our server was all smiles and in constant motion. The tiramasu is fabulous.

That was my first italian restaurant to which brought me my boyfriend two years ago. Since that time we're coming back there from time to time. The place is in the center of centro storico. Very good regional food, nice and friendly stuff speaking english and very cheap prices. The interior is in charming, italian and modest style. A place... More
