Located on the other side of the train station, La Lanterna doesn't get nearly the attention the restaurant deserves. It all starts with the ownership... it's family owned and the owners go out of their way to greet patrons and make them feel welcome. Food...More

Food was good. Loved the mussels app. And scallops special was great. But the highlight of our dinner was our server Alex. He was very professional and attentive and at the same time friendly. We will definitely visit again

Service was attentive and friendly....atmosphere delightful.....my seafood over linguine was fantastic and my girlfriend's penne with vodka sauce equally excellent. The specials are a little pricey ($30-$35) but...More
