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.

    First time dining here. Met with family for birthday celebration.
    We were rather disappointed. Found food uninspiring despite the many awards restaurant holds.
    Some of us had pre-theatre menu and enjoyed our dishes more than those chose steaks from a la carte. Steaks were very average and a bit undercooked.
    Found staff rather aloof, not particularly welcoming and difficult to get attention during busy service.
    Unlikely to return.

    Amazing food and service as always. The Linginue alla Pescatora was simply stunning as always. A little disappointing that the scallop didn't come with the coral/roe this time as previously did when I had it last year, but still a fantastic dish. Huge portions and that wine list is flawless.
