About La Lanterna
La Lanterna is Glasgow's oldest family run Italian restaurant still in the hands of the original owners.
Established in 1970, La Lanterna is Glasgow's oldest family-run Italian restaurant. Named 'Best Restaurant' and 'Best Wine List' at the 2016 Italian Awards, we have great passtion for what we do, and take pride in our classic food & first-class service.
As usual a very good evening.
First visit in years to la laterna but will definitely return. The food was authentic italian food served by lovely staff. Not the most spacious restaurant but that didn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the visit.
First visit, but won't be the last. Amazing food, great atmosphere, lovely staff.
Great food,very attentive staff and great atmosphere
I used to come here in the 80s I don't know why I haven't been back. Probably as there are so many Italian restaurants to choose from Kicking myself now as last night's meal was superb. I know I will be back again soon
This was our first visit and La Lanterna came highly recommended. The first thing that I noticed was the delicious smell as you enter. I found the food superb and the wine was very good. Only downside - we were advised that table should be returned within 2 hours - 15 minutes before that time we were advised that we would have to vacate the table ASAP. I realise on a Saturday night that a timescale must be upheld but it felt very rude and rushed and I felt obliged to leave half of the glass of wine that i’d paid £5.50 for. It would make me think twice about returning.
Good Italian style food. Very good sugo in my companion’s lasagne. Will be back.
Excellent evening meal with outstanding service.
Great food, wine selection, good place to have a great meal without worry because it was consistently excellent.
A jewel in Glasgow . Superb food and wine. Excellent service. We will be back when we are in Glasgow.
Great service and food !!
one of the best dinning experiences we have had great food was great fantastic food
Exelent food and service.
Great pre-theatre option. Hope to return to experience an evening at a more leisurely pace.
Soft drinks far ti expensive. Garlic bread was like a brick and lasagne was just all tomatoe very over priced for what you get would not reccomend this to friends will not be back . Oh and the main course was only wsrm not hot.
Absolutely fabulous! We felt we were in Italy. Loved the table by the restaurants collection of grapa.
The restaurant has done well over the years. It is always good to see Luca out in front of house and keeping a careful watch on what is happening.
Cannot praise la Laterna enough. Just excellent in everything.
I really enjoyed the whole dinning experience. The setting is warm and inviting, the service was attentive without being overbearing. The food was absolutely gorgeous. We would definitely come back again, soon!
food was excellent and as always the staff create a very authentic and relaxing atmosphere , always visit this restaurant when were in Glasgow.
Very cosy place and good food.
Delicious as always! Staff are so pleasant helpful and friendly. We took two couples who had not been before but both will definitely be back and why wouldn’t they - it’s such a lovely restaurant in the heart of the city - highly recommend you visit very soon
Excellent dining experience. Would recommend to all
I loved the food, staff and ambiance of the restaurant. I will definitely be back. I had a wonderful dining experience. Thank you so much.
