We visited La Lanterna twice. The first time the food was excellent but the second visit it was not the same. More people the second time, maybe that had something to do with the quality. They have some special Sicilian food we didn´t see anywhere...More

Very unfriendly staff. Staff gave us the feeling he does not want us to order anything!?! We left before ordering the food. I have not done that ever before

The service was so bad we left after ordering only the water. The waiter did not even make an effort to be friendly and had a super mean attitude. Don't go

We enjoyed a great 4 course dinner with huge antipasti platters and an entertaining trio of George George and George who got us all up dancing. Food was plentiful and tasty, and they catered for the GF friend and the vegetarian amongst us.

Very good food, lot of people, good services. Open already in the morning, late in the evening. Local people like it also, during weekend you have to be in time to get place. Very popular, Location marvellous beside the statue of Nike!
