We first tried this restaurant over 10 years ago when we first moved to Reigate and were disappointed then. We thought we would try it again, but nothing has changed. This restaurant, although supposedly authentic Italian (it is run by an Italian) seems to be...More

Thank you, we really do appreciate your opinion

Went there for a lunch. Very expensive, poor food, expensive wine, indifferent service. I'm sure there are more expensive and worse restaurants in Reigate, but you'd have to look hard to find one. The food was largely overcooked, frozen produce or frankly unpalatable, and did...More

This was our first visit to La Lanterna, but it most certainly won't be our last! We went for the set meal @ £19.50 for 3 courses. Quite often we have been to other restaurants and had the set meal, and the portions have been...More

Warm welcome and tempting menu. Friendly fellow customers and delicious food. Somewhat understaffed so management fully hands on and over stretched, as a result we couldn't order off the flambe menu. However, we'll be returning for sure. One of the few non chain restaurants in...More

Being one of a few non-chain restaurants in Reigate, I really wanted to like this place, but was disappointed with this place. I ignored the advice of unimpressed friends and gave it a go, but the quality of what was on offer was a huge...More

Much improved... The first time I went (well, was taken...) to La Lanterna years ago I came back excited and happy but over the years the novelty wore off a bit. It tended to be reliable and enjoyable enough, but missed that ‘wow!’ factor. What...More

I recently revisited England and stayed with the lovely family for whom I had worked, and one evening, they kindly took me to a restaurant they enthusiastically described as a little corner of Italy in Surrey. How right they were! Though I love Italian food,...More

This friendly Italian restaurant is my favourite amongst all restaurants I have been to since moving to England almost 10 years ago. It always reminds me of many happy meals eaten in the warm South of the wonderful country Tony comes from; its appearance may...More

Description
Equal parts British and Italian, this old dining destination has everything from a picturesque setting to an amazing traditional Italian menu, and it's no wonder the place is popular for weddings and summertime al fresco lunches in the secret garden. Inside is a delight with its lemon and white tablecloths and original beam, and La Lanterna attracts and eclectic creative crowd as well business folk and loved up couples.
