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.

This was our first time at La Lanterna, West End, after previous visiting the city centre restaurant. The West End restaurant is beautifully presented and has a very cosy, yet modern feel to it. The place was full and had a great atmosphere also. The food was amazing, the portions are a great size and as I had said to my partner at the time, it’s the best Italian food I’ve tasted! The staff were very attentive too and made sure we felt relaxed and well looked after. I would really recommend La Lanterna, West End and we will definitely be coming back in the near future!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Pasta portions large, I should have ordered a starter portion only.

Beautiful food. Very high quality Italian. Fresh seafood and rich flavours. Staff were very attentive. Decor is beautiful and place is very clean. A little quiet when we were in but it was a Sunday evening and the place sounded very busy when I called to book earlier that day. Would definitely return. Could have ate everything on the menu!

The food was fabulous. Less so was the table allocation in the restaurant. When we arrived for lunch there was only one booth and three other tables occupied and when we were placed on a small table at the back of the restaurant, I asked if we could move to a better located space. I was told this would not be possible as the other tables were reserved. Fair enough. Except after two hours of staring into the kitchen every time the door was opened, and being banged into by customers on their way to the toilets, the other table I had requested to love to was still empty. So too were better tables in the window. When I asked why they hadn't been able to grant my request to move, I was told they would find out. I'm still waiting. Such a shame as the food was great - but I'm used to being better treated.

Really enjoyed our food. A much higher quality of presentation and service than the usual Italian restaurant in the comparable price range. We would certainly return.

The downstairs area was a bit cramped and the tables being very close together detracted from the atmosphere. Food and service was excellent.
