I just wanted to say thank you for making my birthday so special and welcoming my children to your restaurant. Oh my goodness, the food, outstanding. Love, care and attention all went into our meals. The food was the best I have ever eaten, old fashioned gastronomy at its finest. Unpretentious decor and Italian speed service all add up to... More

Our evening visit was a revelation considering the rubbish one usually finds in many so called restaurants. Yes it is a little more expensive here but not by much, and the food is well worth it! The staff too were absolutely excellent, helpful and friendly. Do visit, you will not be disappointed.

Lanterna is not cheap but the quality of ingedients and cooking was second to none. This included home made pasta with a velvet crab sauce, steak with fontina sauce and white truffles and grilled turbot. A real treat. (In London you'd pay twice the price)

Wonderful Italian food served again in this classy restaurant that has continued to be the best in Scarborough for the last 35 years. The soups, fish soup, velvet crab spaghetti, brill, veal and Zabaglioni are always superb. The internal decoration is very warm and colurful to match the quality food and wines and lovely staff. The fish dishes are superb,... More

I have known about Lanterna for years but for some reason never visited. In Scarborough for a few days and we promised ourselves a special celebratory dinner. Lanterna was duly booked and the waiting was over. The premises are somewhat understated but very nice. We were greeted my two very attentive ladies who, between, them explained the wine and food...

We arrived early, just as they were opening, after being closed for a visit to Italy to source truffles. Received a warm welcome in this cozy restaurant. The service throughout was excellent, attentive but never obtrusive. The food was superb. A starter of pear in red wine with 2 cheeses was sublime. A main for us both involved venison, in... More

This restaurant is excellent. This is fine dining and we have been a number of times over the years. Obviously the team are happy in their working environment as the turnover of staff is almost none existent. The staff are always attentive without being intrusive and service is very good. Although the menu doesn't change dramatically there are always number... More

There was a steady flow of people coming in, some with children, everyone looked after to a good standard. We do go to restaurants quiete often,... More
