“Ideal lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We had lunch here on our last day in Bellagio. Since we had a long journey home ahead of us we wanted something fairly substantial so we decided on pasta & this little place proved an ideal choice. Its located in the centre of town halfway up one of several steep flights of steps that lead away from the lakeside. You don't get a lake view but the place is clean & bright & the walls are decorated with hand painted plates & shelves full of hand painted bottles of wine (full ones), many with scenes of Bellagio. These are for sale if you want to take one home as a souvenir. We rather liked them & would probably have bought one if we hadn't been for concern over whether it would survive airport baggage handlers. Service was friendly & in common with everywhere we visited in Bellagio, english speaking. Both our pasta dishes were filling, excellent quality & full of flavour & we washed them down with a rather good half litre of red wine. Topped off with coffees our bill came to just over £31 for two, so cheap by Bellagio standards. Recommended.

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

This restaurant has a limited menu (mainly pasta and baguettes), but the food is wonderful and the service is the best we've had anywhere. Look out specially for Mama's tarts - the fig and peach are very good.

“Great find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

My wife and had spent the day shuttling between the various towns on Lake Como, and found ourselves at Bellagio around supper time. Walked up an alley, and found La Lanterna. This is a small, family owned restaurant which makes its own pasta. Just delicious. Simple, friendly service, and nice atmosphere.

“Wonderful dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

This family run business is eager to please. He staff was friendly, the meals were good, although my wife would say her dinner salad was to die for good. We tried a cake made fresh today by the waitress' mother and it was wonderful. We recommend this place.
