    We were very pleased with our dinner at La Lanterna, one of our best meals after 12 days touring Italy! We received free glasses of sparkling wine plus bruschetta upon arrival. The staff was friendly and efficient. The kids pizza and pasta were great. The pasta carbonara and grouper with potatoes were delicious. I recommend you take time to find this gem for yourself!

    Really nice restaurant for a mid to higher price range. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Most people are seated outside but have a look inside- there a portion of windowed floor where you can see the mosaic from the Roman baths that the restaurant was built over. The food is very good and presented well. Some dishes are quite rich though. Overall great meal.

    We last visited this restaurant 14 years ago, on previous to Sorrento. We were even more impressed than we were then. The food and the service were faultless and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Started with delicious, fresh minestrone soup. Offered two spoons to share without having to ask. Followed with steak (partner) and veal for me accompanied by freshly cooked fries. Delicious desserts to follow with the best coffee we’ve had since arriving in Sorrento and the meal enhanced with a glass of very acceptable red wine. Do go to this wonderful restaurant - you won’t be disappointed.

    Delicious food and nice atmosphere. However, we were surprised as we were ignored as 5 waiters were very focused only in a particular table. We don't know if they were celebrities, rich or someone that gives good tips, but waiters should also take care of the rest of customers. Anyway, food was very tasty

    Service was amazing; reservation was fantastic to have. Food was incredible - not one thing we didn’t love. Complimentary champagne starter and limoncello digestives were a welcoming touch!

    This restaurant in the city centre of Sorrento is also managed by the owner of the nearby l'Abate, but we were a bit disappointed: our wine picked from the list was not available, the primo 'caponata' had not much in common with the original caponata. Meals were good, but nothing spécial.

    Disappointing. Waiters only interested in getting as many people in to the restaurant as possible. Once they're in, service not welcoming or very responsive. Food very mediocre. Would not return.

    I love this restaurant,I've been many times & you never have a bad meal here. The best restaurant in Sorrento as far as I am conserved. We had free proseco when we got there & then complementary tomatoes in olive oil on . The meals were fantastic,the best pizza around done in a wood fired oven. My husband had spaghetti carbonara made the proper Italian way with eggs & not with cream (sacrilege!) Deserts were absolutely authenticly made. Afterward we were offered complementary limoncello. I would not hesitate to recommend this amazing restaurant. It was so good we're again tonight!
