Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first visit and won't be our last. Our children gave us gift certificates at Christmas and we said we'd use them to have our anniversary dinner at Lanterna Tuscan Bistro. We were quite pleased with the ambiance, service and above all the food. It may have been a bit pricy but well worth it. Our waiter Fredy and his assistant were very attentive to our wants and needs. They knew it was a special occasion for us and did all they could to see that all went well. We recommend the Lanterna highly and if you are in the Nyack, NY area plan on a visit. Great time Gang - Well done."

  • "Lanterna's always a very good and always enjoyable place for a nice dinner in Rockland. Service is always friendly and casual, the crowd is a nice mixture of neighborhood folks, young couples, etc.... and the food is VERY authentic northern Italian, never too spicy or too heavy. Save room for the tiramisu."

  • "The food and service were excellent. The restaurant is very quiet and we were seated very close to the 2 tables in the front window. The restaurant would have a warmer feel if there was quiet music. We felt like both couples next to us were listening to each other's conversations. Seated too close...not enough background noise."

  • "I was in the area on business with a colleague and looked online for a spot that offered more than the usual lunch fare. The Lanterna was a great choice. The staff was very friendly and provided excellent service. The squash ravioli was good; the wild boar ragu was excellent. A wedge salad to start and a dessert to finish up were plenty big enough to share and on par with the ragu. Overall a great lunch. If in the area again, I would certainly plan a return visit, maybe the next time for dinner."

  • "Really a delicious meal. The anti-pasta app was so yummy! All of our diners were great. The cheesecake was only so-so. The oy downside is if your table is not ready there is no where to wait. But we will definitely be going back!"

  • "Enjoyed a delicious meal Burrata special was creamy and delicious. Crab cake apps were good but arrived at the table cool. Lobster ravioli and seafood stew was equally fantastic. Table service was somewhat inattentive but pleasant."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Food was okay, but rather bland. This small restaurant was quiet and we were able to talk. While the immediate area of the restaurant appears safe, the area in general feels unsafe with questionable characters hanging around with apparently nothing to do. We felt unsafe and not likely to return soon."

  • "The food was excellent, the grilled pork chop was "steakhouse quality", the pasta was outstanding and the service was top notch... couldn't ask for a better dining experience..."
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "STORE FRONT RESTAURANT, VERY NARROW, HIGH CEILINGS, VERY NOISEY. HAVE LIQUOR LICENCE BUT NO BAR. ONE ANTIPASTO TO STAY AWAY FROM IS THE "CALAMARI ALLA GRIGLIA" IN ONE WORD "TASTELESS". THE OTHER DISHES WE HAD WERE GREAT AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM, THEY ARE: "CESTINO DI PARMIGIANO" A BASKET MADE OUT OF PARMIGIANO CHEESE FILLED WITH MIXED FILED GREENS (FANTASTIC)"TRIO DI PASTA" 3 SPECIALTY PASTAS W/3 CHEESES (DOUBLE FANTASTIC) AND FINALLY THE "BISTECCA TAGLIATA" GRILLED HANGER STEAK (BEST STEAK I'VE HAD IN A LONG LONG TIME). I'D GIVE IT ANOTHER SHOT, FOOD WAS WORTH THE TRIP FROM NEW JERSEY TO NYACK N.Y., EXCEPT FOR THE CALAMARI."

  • "My girlfriend and I had an absolutely great meal at Lanterna in Oct 2013. The wine list was small but very well done based on the selections. The menu offers incredible Tuscan food you just can't find anywhere else in Rockland. The head chef/owner makes a note to stop by and see how you're enjoying your meal; I watched him actively make his way around the room all night, making friendly small talk with the diners. It was great to see he takes such pride in his restaurant. The waite staff was very efficient, delivering bread almost instantaneously as we ran out, and were always there to offer assistance. Overall, fantastic experience and would recommend to anyone for date night (reasonably priced but not cheap) or special occasion."

  • "My husband and I have been here numerous and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent, with attention to seasonal availability and prepared to perfection. We have often made special requests, which Rossano has always done his best to provide us with-and we are always amazed at how well he presents these specialties. The wait staff is attentive without being overbearing; noise is at a minimum and the background music is just that-background, making conversation very easy. We have every intention of continuing to dine at this restaurant and to recommend it at every chance that we can."

  • "The food was fair at best. Actually quiteof bland. Lanterna has been far better in the past and seems like it has gone down hill."
