About La Lanterna West End
La Lanterna has been serving up authentic Italian food in Glasgow for over 45 years, making it the oldest family run Italian restaurant in the city, still in the hands of the original owners.
With its city centre restaurant established in 1970 and a West End establishment opened in 2017, La Lanterna's legacy continues, having previously been named 'Best Restaurant', 'Best Team', 'Best Chef', and 'Best Wine List' at a variety of awards ceremonies over the years, including Scotland's official best Italian restaurant at the 2016 Italian Awards.
We have great passion for what we do, and take pride in our classic food & first-class service. We hope you'll be joining us at our West End restaurant soon.
Great service and food very nice decor very different from Hope Street very enjoyable experience.
Loved the food and the decor. Nice non-alcoholic cocktail. Service was efficient and friendly. Thought the pre-theatre menu was well priced but we only had time for one course so chose from the main menu. One gripe - we were told that fries are gluten free but luckily my coeliac daughter knows to ask if a separate fryer is used. It is not, fair enough, but staff have been told that the temperature kills the gluten. Not true. Gluten is a protein and can’t be killed. When hearing this type of misunderstanding, we do have reservations about how safe it is to eat in a restaurant.
It was our first visit to the West End restaurant having been a fan of the Hope St original for many years. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening- it was a joint birthday celebration- from the excellent food to the decor to the service. The waiting staff were lovely, very cheery & efficient & our complementary liqueurs (with candles!) were much appreciated! Well done to all.
FIRST VISIT BUT WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK
Fantastic restaurant; friendly staff, amazing food, and great cocktails ... We have already booked our next visit :)
Great atmosphere and fabulous food - so much choice! Nice finishing touches throughout the night.

We had a fabulous night, service and food amazing... thank you ❤️
Excellent service. The manager had the perfect balance of friendly and professional. Great atmosphere. Delicious food. The set lunch menu is good value - that is what brought us there.
Excellent food. I visited with my aunt and we both really enjoyed it. She hardly ever eats 3 courses but couldn’t help herself. She loved her peach Bellini and I really enjoyed my soft tail. I had asked for a quiet table and it was. Some music but not too loud. Very nice atmosphere. Great service. Thanks for a lovely experience
Beautiful restaurant Fabulous service Amazing food
As always. Excellent
Great food and great service
Great place to idle away an afternoon. Good food (particularly the sea bass and the pate) and very generous portions of pasta. Our waiter was funny and engaging and very knowledgeable about grappa. Looking forward to returning.
Lovely place. Have always requested a location/table within the restaurant and always been happy with where we have been placed. Nice staff, great surroundings, good atmosphere and excellent food. Happy to be a regular.
Excellent, food, service and wine, as usual!
