Authentic Italian experience and amazing food. The staff are friendly and helpful, you can also request them to modify the menu and they will gladly help. I tried the Chicken and Mushroom risotto without the chicken which was amazing. The place was crowded and we were lucky that they had just one no show, so we got the table. Recommended that you make a reservation in advance.
Normally we dine in the west end restaurant but decided to give hope street a try. from start to finish it was fantastic, good atmosphere and really pleasant service from the staff. food was amazing and portions are really good. only downside to our evening was we were given fresh olives and bread which we thought was a nice little touch. we don't eat olives and choose not to eat all the bread as we where about to have a big meal. was disappointed when we seen the bill and was charged £8 for something we didn't actually order. didn't bother saying anything because at that point we had already had 2 slices of dread. I also heard another table saying they never ordered the bread and olives when we were leaving. just wonder how many times this actually happens.
Came here last week for the first time and I'm in love! The food was just phenomenal. I had the veal saltimbocca and it was absolutely delicious. I ate the food far too quickly for a photo so I've added a picture of the prawns my friend got! So for pudding, I got the tiramisu as it's my favourite. It was so light and creamy, delicious! We all had clear plates by the end of the night. Staff were amazing and ambience was lovely. Will definitely be coming back and work our way through the menu
Currently in it's 50th year, this is a rather wonderful Italian restaurant. From the friendly and welcoming staff, relaxed atmosphere to the excellent food, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Would happily go there again.
Amazing food. Very tasty and good portion of quantity for the price. You should book in advance though. The staff were friendly and helpful. It’s so happening place.Recommended dishesPanna Cotta, Risotto Frutti Di Mare, Tiramisu
Great authentic experience. The staff was very friendly and the food was just perfect. The lobster and crab ravioli did not disappoint. Just loved the ambiance and true Italian feeling in Glasgow.Food: 5/5
Absolutely amazing. Fantastic portion size to price and with a great taste that puts others to shame. Located downstairs, the area is decorated nicely and the staff are all very nice. The respect and handwork into the ingredients and food can be tasted in the end dish. For two it was about £30 per with a main each and a dessert to share. The spaghetti genovese and tiramisu are quite lovely. Reserve a table now!
This is a delightful Italian restaurant. Beautiful, bright but cosy decor with very welcoming and friendly staff. Was busy for mid afternoon on a Tuesday 7 December, which made a great atmosphere, and the service was very good. Food from the festive menu was absolutely delicious. A wee hidden gem.
Had superb service from the staff. For starters, we ordered the appletini which was delicious, their homemade focaccia bread and garlic butter langoustines. The langoustines were really fresh and yummy, and the bread was soft yet crunchy light crust. For the mains, we ordered the rack of lamb which was done perfectly medium and was one of the most tender pieces of meat I’ve ever had. And also the seafood pasta which was very generous with the seafood and was done really well too. We finished off the dinner with a tiramisu to share which was refreshingly light. Overall, a fantastic dining experience, would come back again to try their other dishes!
Italian cuisine wouldn't be my first choice normally but La Lanterna may have given me a newfound appreciation for it! A reservation is recommended but we were lucky enough to snag a table on a weekday. Set in the basement of an unassuming street near the station, one must press the buzzer for entry. The staff are friendly and we were sat in good time. Skipping straight to mains, I ordered a salmon & king prawn fettuccine. I'll let my picture do the talking. Look at those prawns! I can understand why LL has received recognition as Scotland's best Italian restaurant! The pasta was divine; I'm going to be seeking out copycat dishes until I can make a trip to Glasgow again. At £16.95, it was a fair price for the quality of food and beautiful decor.
