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.

  • ((((( 23 July 2017 by Lesley Lewis from Edinburgh

    We were given a cosy corner where we could chat undisturbed with our friends. Service was attentive but discreet and our waiter had a great sense of humour. Food delicious...we had a hard time choosing from the menu as there were so many lovely dishes on offer.

    Food and service excellent, a wee smile from head waiter would have been nice.

    Late lunch, service 100%. Haven't been in for a few years, but loved the refreshed décor (even though the old style was great). staff very friendly and did not rush you at all. Crab ravioli was amazing, as was everything else, just can't remember all we ate. Great wine choice also. Will make this a regular occurrence again. Forgot how great the food is.
