About Us

Fresh speciality authentic Italian dishes made to order for you.

La Lanterna is a authentic Italian dining experience in the centre of the most popular streets of Edinburgh. In our restaurant you find the best quality real Italian dishes served exactly as they should be. Real food authentic Italian experience, home-made classics and friendly buzzing atmosphere. We may even surprise you with some Scottish twist on our special dishes.

We are very proud of the fact that a great deal of our business is from repeat customers. We are still welcoming people through the doors who have enjoyed eating at La Lanterna since we opened in 1983.

So why do so many people enjoy coming back to our little Italian Restaurant? Is it because we hand picks all of the vegetables that we use daily from our local supplier? Or is it because all of the food that we serve is cooked to perfection and to order?

If time allows and we have the ingredients in, our chefs will be happy to alter any recipe to your taste. We hope that it is our strong attention to detail and the authenticity of the food that we serve that gives us an edge on the other restaurants in Edinburgh.
