Visited this restaurant on two successive nights because the first night was so good. Great Caesar both nights. I had the same veal ravioli in a lemon butter with prosciutto both nights. First night fdish was amazing. Second night, very little lemon and temp was lukewarm. Restaurant was really busy second night with large parties so that may explain it.... More

Situated right on the front of the marina, Lanterna is an Italian restaurant with a broad menu - open for dinner service only. The staff are generally good - friendly and informative. The tables are nicely spaced - so you have both elbow room and a little bit of privacy. The restaurant can get very busy at weekends and on... More

After having tried many below average restaurants in Jaco finally I found Lanterna as a very good Italian restaurant probably the best in Costa Rica. Tuna carpaccio and homemade lasagna are a must. Sangria was also very good.

Totally not paid attention to, servers at other tables around us getting food and drinks to their tables but out server was too busy serving tables outside. We asked for our food to go, went back to hotel room and... More

Food was great, friends got the lasagna and the portion was huge. Husband ordered spaghetti with clams, but asked them to add octopus. They were extremely accommodating and friendly. A bit pricey for pasta, but it was a marina setting in Los Suenos. Would definitely try again if had the chance.

Lanterna is a perfectly situation amongst the Los Suenos marina village to watch the sport fishing boats return at the end of the day and watch the sunset at the same time. Their menu offered many dishes, but their Italian meals are delicious, especially the Tomato & Mozzarella Caprese salad and Lasagna. Magnifico !

The Marina area at Los Suenos is a great little village at the water's edge of a busy marina. The Lanterna restaurant, while Italian and we're close to the water and thinking seafood, was a great restaurant with great service. They had seafood options on the menu to be sure, but we were interested in the more traditional Italian offerings.... More

This was a great dinner experience at the marina. At first I was not expecting much then the waiter came over and soon I knew it was going to be great. The wine list isn't very long but has all expected options. I had the spaghetti Bolognese it was well seasoned and prepared. The lasagna had long slices of panchetta... More

This place is fantastic with a bunch of options for different eaters. While it is little expensive, it isn't nearly as pricey as the other places in this area.
