La Lanterna is fast becoming our favourite place in town to go for a meal. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly. The evening menu has something for everyone and still authentic Italian. I have always thoroughly enjoyed my food at La Lanterna and I have tried just about everything.

Would recommend La Lanterna to anyone who enjoys authentic Italian cuisine at reasonable prices.

Fab meal for eight of us at La Lanterna. My parents used to go 20 years ago. Still owned by the same family according to website. Just such a lovely change to the usual chain restaurants I eat in when in cities around the UK. Food excellent. Wine reasonably priced. Service good. Prices very reasonable. Will definitely go back (in fact I am for lunch - today!)

Visited La Lanterna for the first time on a rainy Burns' night. We were warmly welcomed and seated immediately although we had not booked. The staff were helpful and jovial without being too "in yer face". I had the beef fillet penne (as recommended by another reviewer) and my wife had the goats cheese and pepper ravioli. Both were delicious and very generous portions which left us feeling rather full, but we forced ourselves to sample a couple of items from the dessert menu which were equally decadent. Will definitely be back in the near future.

I am a regular visitor to Italy and have to say that the food here was the best I have had outside of Italy. The surroundings just make you feel you are in a little part of Tuscany. The food is authentic and the service is excellen and friendly. I cannot wait till my next visit which will certainly be soon.
