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.
A gem of a place we had my fiancé's birthday lunch here there was 11 of us and every person has raved about it. Beautiful food great cheery genuine service and great value will definitely be back. My name is Strain though 😀
First time at the restaurant and will definitely be back. Really lovely décor, very modern and stylish. Staff were lovely and the service was great. Food was excellent, great menu too. Unfortunately I was driving and couldn't try the fab cocktail list so will be back to sample some of these. One of my new favs!!!!
Great family night out in the restaurant. The food was delicious and we were well looked after by the friendly staff and the very personable manager.
Very pleasant experience. Lovely restaurant. Would definitely recommend to friends.
It’s my favourite restaurant. Glad they opened up in the Westend. Management and staff are first class.
Great food and great service as always
As always, a lovely lunch with staff who get everything 'just right'. But please, please, add a daily mains special to the table d'hote menu as you add a daily dessert special. Given that you don't change the menu that often, it would add an extra touch of interest--"Oh, look, they've got ..."
We dined downstairs. Everything was perfect but the dining area was a wee bit on the warm side. We dined at La Parmigiana since 1980 and it was our favourite place. La Lanterna west end is excellent with a great staff. Thank you.
Excellent dinner experience.
I brought five guests from work for a late lunch, and everyone said how superb all the pasta/risotto dishes were. Our meal was very successful all round, and the restaurant is a very pleasant environment.
Always the first choice when it comes to affordable yet professionally made cuisine.
Fabulous food and service as always
The downstairs has far too many tables and I had to move each time the staff needed into the corner table. Tables are too close so you hear the conversation of couples at both sides. Very disappointing as this restaurant was recommended and was not the birthday meal I was promised.
Food fantastic...the lasagne and cheesecake absolutely delicious!
Came here for a special occasion dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed! The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was delicious. Will definitely be coming back!
We had a lovely meal - great place!
Friendly staff, but not enough of them. Service was extremely slow and well below your usual standard. We arrived at 7.30pm and at 9.30pm we were still waiting for our main course plates to be cleared. When they eventually were cleared no one offered the dessert menu. We had to ask a member of staff to those, so we could finish our meal.
Lovely food steaks were cooked perfectly and ravioli was lovely
Food was wonderful; really large portions. Very attentive, friendly service. Beautiful surroundings.
Both my husband and I have visited the restaurant several times and always had a lovely meal. We were taking friends for dinner on the above night who hadn’t been before, we were highly recommending restaurant. This was for a special occasion, our treat. Can honestly say it was one of the worst meals we have had in a long time. Our friends had both ordered the same dish, a special of a pasta stroganoff which when it arrived resembled nothing like the description. The pasta was literally in big clumps stuck together, the dishes were hardly touched by our friends. When we pointed this out to waitress she looked really disappointed and it was taken back to the kitchen. At no point was a apology given or asked if we could get another meal in substitute of this. I had a fillet steak well done which was so tough o really did struggle to actually swallow it! When the bill came one pasta dish was removed from bill opposed to two which is so wrong considering both pasta dishes were sent back. Can only assume it was a change of chef for the sub standard meal. Really disappointing.
Great food in lovely surroundings with great service.. highly recommend.
Amazing food and service. Definitely one of my favourite places
Excellent food and service was superb.
Had the most fantastic dining experience on Saturday night. All in all the food was amazing, the ambience within the restaurant was wonderful and the service was superb. And the prices? Very reasonable. Two small requests from our table of 6 - a less sweet sauce with the sea bass and hooks on the inside of the ladies toilet doors so that our bags can be hung up and kept off the floor. Will most definitely be back!!
Lovely food. Excellent service. Highly recommended.
