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 .

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.

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!

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!).

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!!!
