"Downhome local favorite"

Simple, but good! Nice family atmosphere, with loads of local families dinning. Traditional fare with very reasonable prices, and varied menu. Recommended by the front desk at our hotel. Did not disappoint after days of up-scale dinning.

Lovely restaurant, great food, top notch ambiance and friendly staff. Add in that the owner speaks good english and you can't go wrong. You can have dinner and drinks for two here for less than £30 (about €40) all in and you will not go away hungry

A beautiful interior and sweet smelling, quiet outside dining combined with good food at great prices makes this a 5! The pizza is from a wood fired oven, my husband had delicious octopus salad followed by penne with swordfish in a tomato sauce. I'd been craving vegetables and they have many choices! That plus pizza and I was happy! Everything... More

A very pleasant small restaurant. We were kindly given a plate of titbits while we considered the menu. We had two interesting pasta dishes, a mixed salad of fennel, carrot and lettuce and a wonderful dessert of ricotta cheese with a soft biscuit. Dishes seemed to offer something a little diffierent and were good value

My husband and I went for a great meal here on our honeymoon. We started with seafood salad, and then he had the Sardinia speciality pasta malloreddus and I had seafood pasta. Both were excellent and we were lucky to have a cozy spot on the restaurant's terrace. We were staying on the Simius Beach so it was a bit... More

La Lanterna has a more varied menu than most of the other restaurants in Villasimius and the food is extremely good. My husband had a superb fillet steak and my pizza was wonderful - not like anything served in PizzaExpress! Cheery staff and a good choice of wines too. Terrace tables are nice but you need to be there early... More

Being foodies we take some time to sound out restaurants, so many just do not have a clue. We usually keep away from the central square areas etc. This was a little off the beaten track but well worth the walk. It was buzzing but we managed to get a table without a reservation. We were very impressed by the... More
