Very friendly staff. Tiramisu the best - and it was my friends birthday so it was on the house. Had Tuscan sausage and beans for starter for first time - amazing!

I love Lanterna. I recall seeimg the menu as a young boy in the 70s. Immediately fascinated by it and been a foodie ever since. The Tournedo Rossini is a favourite!

Atmosphere was marked down only due to COVID. We were one of only 4 tables in the restaurant which is so sad for this time of year. Food and service were flawless

First time visiting restaurant. Food and drinks were fine, no complaints but nothing special. Service was good but didn’t realise a la carte menu was available as when booking Christmas Menu had to be selected. Atmosphere was probably as good as it can be during a pandemic. Will return post Covid as I don’t believe this was the real La Laterna.

Food was exceptional, service was fast and friendly, I asked for Zabaglione which was not on the menu and they made me the best I've ever had

Felt very safe, social distancing and sanatising was unobtrusive but clearly in evidence. Food and service were fabulous as usual. Staff are so cheerful and helpful and food tastes amazing. We will be back

Welcoming, curtious and attentive waiting staff which only improved the La Lanterna experience. Food was excellent (as always), our compliments to the chefs amd all the kitchen staff. We did miss the usual hussle and bussle of the La Lantern's festive time service/ atmosphere. However, in these times that is not a reflection on such a classy restaurant, and it didn't detract from the visit. We wish La Lanterna all the best for the future. Have a good service.

We loved our first visit to La Lanterna, We had an early dinner ( around 3.30pm) in Covid times and were the only guests at that time, but the surroundings looked amazing and we both could imagine the atmosphere with the restaurant filled with people. The food was amazing and waiter very authentic and very attentive . A real Italian experience . Reminded me very much of my holidays in Rome and Venice . We will absolutely be back to this little gem of a restaurant.
