I went here with my partner purely on tripadvisor recommendations and was not disappointed. It was probably one of the best meals I have ever had in Copenhagen. Excellent service with amazingly good food...highly recommended.

A little bit of the beaten track you will find this hidden gem! If you know what to look for - La Lanterna is a 10-15 min walk from Vesterbro, 5-7 min from the Falconer Center. La Lanterna is a family-runned restaurant, small with great atmosphere. The owner and waiter gave us great service. We was recommended todays-menu and it... More

After success with a TripAdvisor recommended restaurant in Brussels when we arrived in Copenhagen we again sought out TripAdvisor recommendations - and we are glad we did! This restaurant is wonderful. Superb food, we had the carpaccio to share as a starter and then I had the duo of fish, salmon and sole, and my wife had the risotto special... More

Visited this charming family restaurant recently and was surprised at how delicious the food was - all three courses we had were of a high standard. I recommend the wine Ronchendone Rosso 2012 - we literally savoured each drop! The service was efficient and effective. I would go again.

This is without a doubt one of my favorite restaurants in Copenhagen. The best service in town, and also the food is absolutely wonderful. We enjoy coming here every time we go. Thank you for La Lanterna, you should really go there!

Very nice place, nice decor, good quality table linen and glasses: years of care have been taken over these things and it shows. Had the best scallops I've ever eaten for starter. Then a proper al dente risotto - this was a bit salty but nice nonetheless. For main it was monkfish, again very nice but it was served with... More

Maybe this wasn't fair, but frankly I was not expecting a lot when me and the family hit this small Italian place on a rainy night before going to a show. But I was proven wrong: The food was great and extremely tasty and the wine was excellent too and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and personal (but not very... More

My family and I has just visited this restaurant and it was worth every penny. A warm atmosphere, great food and superb service. Three of us had their 5 course menu which is definitely something you should go for. It changes with the season so there is always something new to try. Food was cooked to the best, service was...

I have never had a more enjoyable evening in all my life! The food is a pleasure, both for the eyes and the tongue. While the others ordered ravioli, i tried some homemade gnocchi in a special cream sauce (Unfortunately I can not remember the name of the dish). I tasted amazing! The service was wonderful as well, and the... More

Extremely high quality food at a very reasonable price. Had dinner with my girlfriend and we had several dishes and some great wine. The service is excellent; the owner and his wife are just what you would expect of an authentic Italian couple. Highly recommendable!

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighborhood Profile
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
