Looked for a place suitable for a gang of work colleagues on a course in Glasgow. Someone's friend's neighbour's sister-in-law said go here and you won't be disappointed; she was right! It's adjacent to central station, in a basement and looks ok from the outside. Inside its a tardis. Food really very good. In fact I've been back since with... More

First impressions of the restraunt from the street are misleading, but once down the stairs you are in a different world. The service was first class from the moment we arrived. Now to the main topic, the food. My wife and I visited twice, a Wednesday evening at 1900 when the restraunt was extremely busy and Thursday evening at the... More

Great and inexpensive family meal. Service was excellent and eager to please. Walked in for a Saturday meal at 430 but got in with reservation within an hour and we're immediately seated. The antipasto plate was fantastic. Seafood was exceptional with both spaghetti and seafood ravioli being incredible. Ambiance cozy in a basement. Would recommend a reservation as it has... More

Spent two nights on the trot for a meal here, booked it because it had an extensive fish menu. I had my favourite scallops and my husband had the lamb on our first night, both excellent. Second night we both had the halibut which was cooked to perfection,. This is quite an accolade from me because scallops are one of... More

A lovely meal from pre-theatre menu. I had ravioli starter, which was nice although I couldn't taste the sage in the sage and parmesan sauce. The seabass main was delicious, beautifully cooked fish topped with pancetta. The pinot grigio also went down well, will definitely return to try other dishes.

Was at La Lanterna for lunch today with my husband and two children. From the minute we walked in we were treated like family. Warm friendly and attentive staff and the best Italian food you will get anywhere . The menu is varied. My husband and I shared a platter of Italian meats and cheeses which was superb and then...
