We booked a table for two for the 3rd January and was a bit dismayed to find the place completely empty when we arrived 15 minutes early to our reservation. We had had big dinner the night before, and the emptiness of the restaurant meant we only ordered a small meal with a very cheap half litre of Montefalco Rosso.... More

A tad confusing to find as there are 2 restaurants on parallel streets. Food was good, not great.Good service, I'll go back again in several weeks(our next visit)

Nice restaurant. We found the food to be average. We did not have a reservation but we were able to get seated. Our server was excellent. Very accommodating to one of our party that's a bit fussy. Good house wine. Good value at 81.50 euro including coperti of 6 euro for 4 people.

We liked our dinner and wine in this charming taverna, but we especially liked the waitress with the enthusiastic personality. We complimented the 2 folded napkins on our table (in shape of a shirt and a rose) and she showed us her book of origami folded napkins. What fun! And I could use a little of my Italian with her!...

My husband and I had lunch at Taverna La Lanterna after biking from Bevagna to Spoleto and parking our bicycles at the nearby Piazza. You probably won't see the restaurant if you aren't looking for it but it is very close to the Piazza della Vittoria. The restaurant is simple and has a nice atmosphere. The service was excellent. We... More

This small restaurant is quaint and simple. The food is delicious and very reasonable in price. The owners are very detail-oriented -- the napkin displays are charming. I definitely would and will dine here again. Pasta dishes, omelets, and vegetables are fresh and original.

This place was recommended to us by a shop keeper and it certainly didn't disappoint. There were tables of locals and a few tourists who had obviously been told about it also. The food was very authentic and we asked what dishes were exclusively from the region and ordered those. They were great! The service was friendly, food fabulous and... More

Fortunately, we weren't looking for a "dining experience" when we came to Taverna La Lanterna. It is a simple place, with a not too inspired menu. My husband ordered a sausage, which was okay, but overcooked. His roasted potatoes were excellent. I had a pasta dish which was unremarkable, and our shared dessert was artificially flavored and could have come... More

We had a deliscious dinner here in early April. We started with assorted cured meats. The pasta was all home and outstanding and the tomato sauce deliscious. The red wine was so reasonable that when we finished our half liter we ordered another. My husband had the cream brule which he loved the taste of but they forgot to brule... More
