Food not fresh and waitress wasn't even able to open a bottle of wine. The squid was so gummy and the paste was not cooked, not even al dente. We had to leave in the middle of our dinner because we couldn't eat the food but they didn't make us pay for the main course which is why I would give the place a rate of 1/5. Very disappointed.

Visited this restaurant twice whilst on holiday. Really good, tasty food at good prices. Good portion sizes. Locals eat here as well. Like most other restaurants in Rome it does not open until 7.30pm.

Just visited this restaurant. When we arrived, it was 9:15 pm. A table was just clearing outside and we asked the female server if we could sit there. Her reply was that we should wait a moment. We waited for 10 minutes before I walked in to again ask if we could sit, as I assumed that we'd been forgotten, only to be told that they were closing. No hours were posted. I was very disappointed that we were left waiting for nothing!

The owner was very honest and open when we arrived a Sunday evening and his "stock level" was low.

He did prepare some very good pasta dishes and especially the lasagne was terrific!

I have eaten at La Lanterna on several occasions, and have never been disappointed, the food is fresh and tasty, and the service efficient and friendly. Great to be away from the hordes of tourists!
