“The best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Visited for the first time in a few months last night having eaten here pretty regularly for 5 years or so.
As always the food, service and atmosphere were great. I've eaten in some lovely restaurants over the years in Glasgow and elsewhere, but I think La Lanterna will always be my favourite. In my experience the quality of food and standard of service have never been anything less than superb. But more than that, La Lanterna seems to have that wee bit of 'magic' that sets it above most other establishments. A must try!

“Last minute booking led to a great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Made a last minute reservation, and it was a good thing we did! It was a freezing night in Glasgow but the welcome, food and atmosphere was fantastic. The personal service, excellent food and good price makes La Lanterna a must do when in Glasgow. I will be back next time.

“Fantastic Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Been to the restaurant twice already and cant wait to go back! Food is lovely, dining in an intimate setting, you don't feel like you are on top of anyone even when it is packed. The atmosphere is great and the family run element only adds to this. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. One of the best places to eat in Glasgow.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Went for pre theatre on a Friday at 6pm. The place was full and had a great atmosphere. I had carbonara and crepes filled with spinach and mushrooms - delicious. If you want a quiet romantic meal might be a bit noisy however there was a retirement party in when we were there. Good value for money.
