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.
As fantastic as everything was I have to say that the practice of adding 10% to the bill for parties over 6 is wrong. The customer is being penalised for spending more money. What i will say in Lanternas defence is that this is a common practice and , unlike many places , it was made obvious in large letters on the menu . I certainly would not hesitate to visit here next time i am in Glasgow .
Another excellent meal on Friday night. We won't leave it as long until our third visit!
The staff were great, so friendly and funny! The food was fantastic. We had pre-ordered as requested for our table of 16, all went very smoothly. We will definitely return.
Fantastic evening - husband’s birthday - the seafood risotto was amazing.
My wife & I had a fantastic Christmas lunch yesterday. Food was delicious & drinks ticked all the right boxes! The restaurant had a festive & happy atmosphere and Umberto & the team provided a first class service, making us feel very welcome. Thank you all - until the next time!
We have been several times now but had friends with us who had never visited. They were as impressed with us again with everything. In the midst of restaurants jacking up Christmas prices and downgrading the food offering, how refreshing to find the standards of food and service at La Lanterna WE as high as ever. Excellent!
La Lanterna delivers. Staff decor and ambience are great supporting acts for the main event. The food which is both authentic and delicious. A little piece of Italy on the Great Western Road.
Very nice, the waiter that knew salvatori , he worked with my mum in iil Castello, nice man, Gino d’acampo , great Irish coffee !!!! X
What can I say but you will never be disappointed at the best Italian restaurant in Glasgow
Fabulous atmosphere, food & service. It’s a long time since I was in the previous restaurant and I have nothing but good memories of it. I now know that, whilst the name has changed, the service & food have not. Will definitely be back!
Waited Ine hour before any food arrived. There was a large party next to us rhat seemed to get all rhe attention
We had a delightful lunch in a well run restaurant where the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We look forward very much to returning before too long.
We had a lovely Festive Lunch yesterday, great food and great service. Particularly enjoyed the banter with Umberto the Second (still not sure if we believe everything he told us, haha!).
Food was delicious and staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. This was our first visit and we will certainly return. No hesitation to recommend this restaurant.
Probably the best Thursday afternoon for a long time!
Lovely dinner. Very fresh produce. Full of flavour. Attentive staff.
very nice restaurant and very polite and attentive staff. food was pretty good and we would certainly go back when in Glasgow
We had a lovely lunch from the set menu, a good choice available and excellent food. The staff couldn't have been nicer. We'll be back again soon.
I booked the restaurant for my girlfriend's birthday, the restaurant were happy to take a cake I'd bought and presented it after the meal. The atmosphere, staff, and food were all first class!
Questo è il posto ideale per tutti gli italiani in cerca di un ristorante italiano "vero"... Qualità del cibo davvero ottima, inoltre il menu offre una interessante scelta di pasta fresca fatta a mano dal cuoco rigorosamente italiano. Anche la maggiornaza dei ragazzi in sala sono italiani. Personalmente mi sono sentito come a casa, quindi lo consiglio!!!
Lovely welcoming place to eat.
Another lovely meal at La Lanterna with the kids.
Excellent pre theatre.
