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.

We were seated downstairs and were the only 2 people there for a little while, the fan was removed and 11 more people arrived so it got very warm very quickly! The waitress was playing music which didn't flow, ed shearin was on repeat and a Christmas song also came on. (Its July) My pasta said it was fillet of beef but was more like frying steak. Thin and a bit stringy. Everything still tasted good regardless.

Best calamari I've ever eaten, perfectly cooked. Great selection of food and drink. Service was very good and attentive. Couldn't fault anything about the food, highly recommend. Sat downstairs: too warm and the ambience was flat. Portable air con unit was turned on just as we left - could really have used that from the beginning. You could hear every word said by the people sitting around you and no one was talking particularly loud. This really needs worked on. Could be a combination of tables being too close together and the music being too quiet? This is the only thing stopping me from saying it was the perfect night out. Overall though, thank you for a great evening!

As always, an excellent lunch. As always, please vary the table d'hote a bit more. It really does add to the pleasure to see something new. You already have a dessert of the day. Why not a mains of the day?

This place is lovely for more able bodied individuals unfortunately my advice would to put on the there website that due to the restaurant size that unfortunately it is not wheelchair ♿ friendly or accessible due to entrance space and bathroom being down stairs, which is a shame as the food and friendliness of the staff was exceptional.

The main restaurant looks excellent and the food and service were pretty good - my friends and partner really enjoyed theirs. My gnocchi was vegetarian average unfortunately. We reserved a table, but possibly due to the relatively late booking, we were housed in the basement. Atmosphere is pretty poor here and it was very hot. The atmosphere in the main restaurant was great, which we experienced whilst leaving!! Sorry, sounds bitchy, but we made our own atmosphere.
