We stayed 10 days in Sorrento this year and we are always looking out for a nice restaurant with great food. With La Lanterna you get both with a menu that is reasonably priced. Looking forward to returning later this year 😁😁😁

Stumbled upon this fantastic restaurant in busy old town. We got very well greeted and seated. Food was so amazing, especially the lobster ravioli, that we had to come back several times during our one week in Sorrento :)

The food was wonderful and the house wine was very good. It's amazing that all restaurants serve their house wine and we were never disappointed. I believe we has pizza this day. Very different than the horrible pizza we usually get in the states. Whatever happened to good pizza in the U.S.

This restaurant was recommended, but we had a disappointing experience. We went one evening when it was busy. We waited a while to be served. Then when the food arrived was average and expensive for what we ate. The most disappointing part was the waiters completely lacked any hospitality. We would not recommend this restaurant as there are many very... More

Great location tucked back from the main shopping lane. Diovola pizza and caprese salad were delicious! There is a €2 cover charge but it's still a great restaurant with lovely staff who were on hand but not intrusive. Definitely recommended!

We visisted this place at the end of October, as the weather was still nice, we had a table of 4 outside. The service was very good, the waiter looked after us, we never had to ask for anything. We had plenty of bread and small bruschetta to share at no charge.The cannelloni weere cooked just right, and the sauce... More

The clerk where we bought our tours recommended it. We ate there twice. the waiters asked what we were in the mood for and made some excellent suggestions based on that. I had a few dishes that I would not have considered ordering. They were delicious. Lots of smiles and good vibes from the customers and staff.

I was here for a family meal while in Sorrento, we walked in, 7 of us without a booking and the staff quickly rearranged a table for us. We were given complimentary pizza bread to start which was a nice touch. The food was excellent and flavoursome with everyone at the table enjoying their meal, a wide range of dishes... More

Wife and I popped in for lunch while tooling around Sorrento. I got the zuppa di pesce and she got fried calamari. The fried calamari was just ok. The zuppa di pesce was AWESOME. Service was great. They tolerated my so-so Italian (we live in Napoli) and the limoncello and a little marzipana block came on the house at the... More

We were looking for a nice Italian restaurant as we walk along the shops in Sorrento and we found it in La Lanterna. The food was wonderful and plentiful and the service was excellent. A knowledge of Italian would be useful but most of the waiters could speak English. The wine list was great with a large selection of vintages... More
