I have no idea how many times i have been to this Italian restaurant. Never disappointed me with the thin and crispy pizza and the seafood salad. The restaurant run by an Italian man with a very nice and friendly Thai wife. The pizza here is one of the best in the town. I love the seafood salad here. The... More

This place has always been a good option for us if we want a long, lazy lunch when in Town as it is open all day. The pizzas have never disappointed us and the pasta dishes are ample and tasty . The service is good and the owner very friendly. A great place for people-watching on a lazy or rainy... More

Good pizza, a nice big size - big enough for a hungry person or two to share if not too hungry. On the expensive side for eating in chiang Mai but all Italians seemed the same price so you get what you pay for. So lovely to have some cheese! Staff were ok, attentive enough and were smiley. Nothing spectacular... More

in short : pizzas are pretty good. not spectacular but good (thin crunchy pizzas like the ones you find in Rome, definitely not a neapolitan pizza) location is average... you will quickly forget it. basic place without a soul. clean and very centrally located service is debatable. we waited more than 30 minutes and other people even more... too much,...

We are an Italian couple, we travel a lot and I must say this was one of the best pizza we had abroad, and absolutely in my top 10 including Italy. It's just perfect. Quality, ingredients, variety, taste. Also, very easy to digest. Recommended And Forza Sampdoria!

As all Italians, after a week without eating Italian food we look for it! We found this place, which is not the most beautiful in town, but serves a good pizza, with mozzarella imported directly from Italy. Ingredients are good, pizza is cooked in a wooden oven, so those are all good reason to go there and have a pizza!

Stumbled upon la lanterna and very glad that we did. Delicious pizzas, friendly service. Pizza had an authentically Italian style thin crust and tomato sauce was delicious. Toppings were delicious. Well made pizzas. No need to say more!

What a delightful dinner we got. Even if the set up is a bit old fashioned and dull, the food was excellent. A thin crust pizza which can satisfy any kind of pizza afficionado and a bresaola carpaccio with roquette and parmiggiano which was divine. A really good place to visit with authentic italian food. Thanks

We've been going here since they first opened and it keeps getting better. Nothing extravagant; just refined Italian cooking with excellent ingredients. their gnocchi with gorgonzola cream sauce is absolute perfection - light as a cloud and smooth as silk. Food like this is not cheap, because the helpings are large and the ingredients are first class, but the prices... More

Great little place! I'm Italian from Nee York and just love this place. Authentic recipes, comfortable atmosphere and reasonable prices. Great for a family gathering or to go on a date. You can never go wrong with this place and the owners are wonderful people. I will always go back!!!
