La Lanterna: Award-winning Italian Restaurant.

Established in 1970 at the foot of Hope Street, La Lanterna is Glasgow's oldest family-run Italian restaurant. Named 'Best Italian' at the Glasgow Restaurant Awards 2012 and the Scottish Entertainment Awards in both 2013 and 2014, we take pride in our classic food and first class service.

Head chef Luca Conreno was named 'Best Italian Chef' at the 2013 Italian Awards and our Front of House team was recognised as 'Scotland's Best Team' at the 2014 Italian Awards. You might even have spotted Luca appearing on STV Glasgow's Riverside Show!

A great passion for athentic Italian food is at the heart everything we do. Our recent refurbishment and sumtopus new additions to our menus means that La Lanterna is as cosy and inviting as ever. Come dine with us and experience it for yourself.
