Our service was impressive and involved Chef Ivan himself who left his kitchen to discuss our options and preferences. We sampled an astonishing range of Italian and Sardinian mezze platters which were fresh, colourful and delicious. I particularly enjoyed the wild boar pie/pasty, stew and...More

This is one of the best Italian restaurants on the Island, just up the road in the Old Quarter of town. Great service and really delicious food. Ivan is such a good host and an even better chef, well recommended.

La Lanterna is an intimate Italian restaurant, hidden away in the old quarter of St Peter Port next to the new market, serving authentic rustic specialities.The proprietor is Ivan Pellegrini. Ivan is a native Sardinian and his friendly staff echo the Sardinian spirit: generous, spontaneous, family centred and thoroughly Mediterranean.The menu includes nice stone-baked pizzas, pasta, risotto, fish and meat dishes cooked in the Sardinian style. The wine list is dominated by wine from the region and represents exceedingly good value for money.This is a restaurant to savour, as are the flavours that come from the food.
