    Very impressed wit Chef - Owner attentiveness. Without my mentioning either he immediately noted an issue with my Chair, had is replaced, and when I dropped a Knife, also immediately had a replacement brought. All this while cooking from behind the bar. The food was very good and the staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. The Fried Artichoke Hearts we a great, non-battered, light version and came wit an outstanding Garlic Sauce for dipping.

    My husband's dinner was very, very good. Mine (lobster ravioli) was a bit oversauced and under-lobstered. Very nice atsmosphere and service was attentive but not overbearing.

    Nice local spot. Great staff that was very friendly and accommodating. Lots of great choices on the menu plus specials. I ordered the craprese salad; kitchen was out of Basil but substituted with a pesto sauce. Delicious! Great spot for dinner for 2, or a larger party.

    My husband and I picked this restaurant from the reviews. We were from out of town so we needed someplace near our restaurant. The service was not very good at all. We waiting about 15-20 minutes for a bottle of wine. My order was wrong and we did not have time to have it changed. I was trying to be good about the mistaken order and try it, but it really wasn't good at all. It was very disappointing meal.

    We enjoyed a fine meal, the salad was particularly good, the main meals better than in most neighborhood Italian restaurants. This was our first meal at Lantana Cafe -- we'll be back when next we get a craving for authentic Italian food. Anne P.S. The hostess and our waitress were both pleasant and professional -- just the right amount of attention during the meal. Anne

    I've been coming here for years, and haven't been dissapointed yet. I usually get the Fra Diavlo which is always delicious with just enough heat.

    Lantana Cafe was a great find. It's a smaller size Italian restaurant, but it was a great experience and the food was really good. They have a great wine menu and the setting of the whole place just gives you that relaxed and comfortable feel. My girlfriend and I loved it and will be returning in the future.

    A very good meal with great service. I ordered from the Specials. The onion soup was the best I ever had. My meal was the Veal chop. It looked great and tasted better. Excellent local spot that we will be back to.
