Went with two family members but after a half hour the third order still not arrived. Decent food but rubbish service, avoid, there's plenty of other places to go to.

This is a small Italian restaurant, with very nice decor, and a menu with plenty of variety. The food was outstanding and the staff was very friendly, helpful, and patient.

This restaurant usually surprises me. The steak is great. The pasta is great too. The steamed clams were fantastic too! I really enjoy this restaurant.

We visited this little Italian restaurant one Sunday night when neither of us felt like cooking. My seafood diablo dish was okay, but skimpy on the fetuccine underneath. The decor was dated and the restaurant felt cramped even though it was a quiet, uncrowded night. I guess my overall impression was that the food was okay, but not that great.... More

Went here on a week night, it was almost empty. It is not a very big place, interior is dated. The staff was friendly, but it took a long time to get our food. The food was pretty good, but a little pricey for pretty good italian. Overall too many other choices for me to highly recommend.

I went with my husband on a Sunday afternoon to check out the place and use our $25 coupon from Restaurants.com. I ordered vegetarian dishes, hubby went with meat. My tortellini with pesto were perfection! (sublime! magnificent!) Hubby said they were ok, not impressive, but he says ok to most food (I have yet to see him compliment a meal.)... More

I had been to Lantana Cafe once before but the restaurant.com certificate made me want to go back. We had three fantastic appetizers, the bruschetta, pumpkin raviolis, and fried artichokes. For dinner I had the spicy chicken and it was a very generous portion. My tablemates had the seafood risotto, lobster raviolis and seafood fra diavlo and everyone was happy... More
