Had high expectations of this place after reading the reviews. Staff not over friendly, but I could have overcome that. However, everything that I requested, even the bottle of wine, was not "available ". So, I had to rethink my whole meal, and kind of panic ordered, which did not work out well. Spent over twice as much here than... More

This is an upmarket seafood restaurant that was quite busy for a weeknight. They managed to find us a table but only after leaving us waiting for about 10 minutes not knowing what was happening. The fish and seafood was absolutely beyond reproach, but there are hardly any options for vegetarians and the wait staff didn't cope well when I... More

I stopped for dinner at Lanterna at the recommendation of my hotel and had a very pleasant meal. The restaurant appears to be family owned and I believe I was served by the owner, who spoke very little English but still provided courteous and professional service. My starter was one of the best seafood risotto's I've ever tasted and my... More

After 100 restaurants with the same kind of menu (with awful pictures of the food), we found this place. Very Good and fresh food for a normal price. Worth visiting!

The forgot ordrers and then glasses for the drinks. After the meal it took ages before the... More

Recently returned from a weeks break and dined in this family restaurant twice, on both occasions quality and standards consistently good. We enjoyed the Stuffed squid, Octopus salad and Scampi risotto all freshly sourced and thoroughly recommended. The house wine both red and white offered great value. Service very friendly and helpful.

Thank squirebarr
