Bringing faultless Italian cuisine to Glasgow since 1970, La Lanterna is the holder of The Glasgow Restaurant Association's Best Italian Restaurant as well as winning Best Italian Restaurant in Scotland in 2013 and 2014. Nestled underneath the busy shopping district of Hope Street, the cosy bistro dining room has been serving Glasgow for 44 years.

Showcasing one of the city’s most comprehensive traditional Italian menus, La Lanterna offers fresh antipasti, daily fish specials, and succulent veal and beef steaks. Pasta rolled fresh in house goes into dishes like seafood ravioli with cream bisque, or warming lasagne made to La Lanterna’s treasured recipe.

An extensive menu of traditional Italian desserts at La Lanterns in Glasgow includes creamy panna cotta drizzled with chocolate orange sauce, or tiramisu made to a 35-year-old recipe. An excellent wine list is sourced from some of the finest vineyards in Italy.

Having truly stood the test of time and enjoying a glowing reputation across the whole of Glasgow, La Lanterna Italian restaurant sits just 4 minutes’ walk from Glasgow Central Rail Station, adjacent to the Radisson Blu Hotel, and 5 minutes from the Hydro Arena.

  • ((((( 9 December 2016 by William Pidgeon from Glasgow

    Only 2 of us had previously dined there the other 5 members of my party had not. They were impressed by the decor and even more impressed by the quality of the food. One even described it as the best Italian meal he had eaten in Glasgow Most of them live within Glasgow and the surrounding area and having now 'discovered' La Lanterna ' will,according to their favourable comments, be frequenting it on a more regular basis.

    Another great meal at La Lanterna - best Italian restaurant in the city centre!

  • ((((* 9 December 2016 by Gary Davidson from Glasgow

    The food was amazing, so very good. My only issue is that the chairs are very uncomfortable - sure it encourages a quick turnover of customers but I couldn't wait to get out of it after eating which too a wee bit of shine off the experience.
