I brought my husband here to celebrate his 31st birthday. It was perfect for our romantic evening and the food was amazing. The staff went above and beyond to help celebrate the occasion by bringing out dessert with a candle and switching all the lights off to sing 'happy birthday'. I think everyone was surprised, not just the birthday boy! I will definitely be going back soon.

We went to Glasgow for our 36th wedding anniversary and read reviews of restaurants for our celebration meal. We chose La Lanterna be cause of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were delighted we did. Wonderful atmosphere (packed on Monday evening) delicious food, staff brilliant . It was so good that we went back the following night ! We'd certainly recommend this restaurant.

This is quite possibly the best Italian restaurant I have been to anywhere in the world include Italy. Probably some of the ones I have visited in Sicily were marginally better. The food is mouth watering, delicious and the menu fantastic. House wine is gorgeous and they have expensive bottles too. Very traditional Italian style restaurant decor wise, the service is brilliant too we arrived on a Saturday evening to a queue waiting for tables and a packed restaurant but we're able to get a table after a small wait. You may think the service would have suffered based on how busy it was but it did not wand was faultless. Can not recommend highly enough.

A group of nine of us were visiting Glasgow this weekend to view the wonderful Jack Vettriano exhibition and we decided to eat at La Lanterna following the splendid reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant is quite small and the tables are a little cramped (obviously to cope with the large numbers looking for a table!), however, the ambience, service and quality of food are all exceptional. All of us were delighted by the wonderful presentation and superbly tasting meals presented to us and all agreed that this place is a must whilst visiting this lovely city. The langoustine are notably exceptional along with the amazing rack of lamb. A truly memorable evening and one to relish again and again!!!!
