We opted to eat here for a special occasion - my partner's birthday, because the restaurant looked busy and was open air. We had walked past in previous walks through Bardolino and were aware of the good reviews online. However, the visit was far less than acceptable. Firstly, we were bundled into a table inches from the doorway, meaning all... More

A fairly large restaurant with large open air as well as covered areas. Unlike most it's fairly square so lots if room It's cosy but well lit at the same time. It's in a nice street full of restaurants so always plenty happening. Food is also comparable with other places. Worth a visit

I have been there with my girlfriend for a dinner. Location very good not in front of the lake but just near in one of the street that goes through the city centre of Bardolino. The filetto with pepper and the frittura mista were very good and also the french fries. We also ordered two glass of prosecco and I... More

All the restaurants in Bardolino serve good food but the Lanterna is exceptional.Very busy 6 to 9 pm but you can book a table.All the staff especially Monica work so hard to provide excellent device without being pressurised to leave when the meal is finished. Try the beef on rocket with parmesan cheese or the pizza fruit de mer .

I had read the reviews here before going to bardolino. And was not disappointed. We went after 9pm and there was no waiting for service. I had lamb chops. Great size portion and the where finger licking. There was one waitress but I don't know her name. She was Romanian. She was so friendly and welcoming to us. Thanks

This is one of 2 restaurants further back from the main area of Bardolino. We arrived early, not having booked, thinking that there would be plenty of space. There wasn't but the matre de did find us a table quickly and we had an excellent meal although my wife said her Carbonara was short of sauce. Prices were good and... More

Ate here twice during holiday as have enjoyed the food on previous holidays. Food was good especially the pasta, salads and fish dishes. They leave you a small bottle of Limoncello with your bill, so you can sip it while you wait. Seems to have grown in popularity, as the staff were rushing around and did not really have time...

We eat here every time we visit Bardolino and see no reason to go elsewhere. The husband and wife owners have been running the restaurant for years and the welcome has always been friendly. The food is always excellent, from the lovely beef dishes (Tagliata alla rucola recommended) to the various seafood options (Gamberoni ai ferri). Wine is very reasonably... More
