Our group tried several dishes including the specials and we were delighted with all of them. It is very crowded and space is very tight. Make a reservation - or have your hotel do it.

My wife and I visited La Lanterna on a Thursday lunchtime. We’ve been on quite a few occasions either “pre theatre” or “full menu” but this was our first lunchtime visit.

The short menu is varied and very reasonably priced – 2 courses for £12 or 3 for £15 but the most pleasing thing is the fact that neither the quality or portion size varies from lunch to a la carte.

We started with the complimentary bread basket which always tastes fresh. For our starters we went for the goats cheese and ravioli which both hit the spot.

A lasagne each was as good as it always is in there. The quality is consistent.

We also shared a tasty garlic bread with our mains before splitting an ice cream and finishing with an espresso each.

The bill came to £40 which I was happy to pay.

My only gripe as per usual is about the price of soft drinks. I had 2 small glasses of Irn Bru which probably equalled in volume about a 330 mls can and they were £1.95 each. Absoultely ridiculous.

Food and service was top class as per usual though.

Went here for a meal on Friday night, The atmosphere was good and the food was excellent. Staff were very attentive but not too imposing. Definitley a favourite. Left feeling full but not uncomfortably full. The glass of Prosecco at the start was lovely too. Thank You
