The polenta al forno appetizer
The polenta al forno appetizer was amazing! Have dined here many times and food is always excellent, menu is extensive plus at least half a dozen specials. Service is courteous and attentive. Noise level tends to be high as the restaurant is small and tables are close together. Will continue to frequent this local gem.

This is the second time that I have attended Lanterna Tuscan Bistro and I have been thrilled both times. The food is outstanding. There are dietary restrictions available - gluten free and vegetarian options for people with sensitivities which was wonderful. I plan on bringing back some friends very soon. The only thing I can say is that it was pretty loud and difficult to have a romantic dinner with my hubby.

Lanterna Tuscan Bistro, Nyack
That kitchen rocks! The burratta app was so soft and luscious as was the prosciutto, tomato and roasted pepper that accompanied it. Homemade butternut squash ravioli in sage butter sauce was the kind of dish you don't want to end. Spaghettini with shrimp in garlic and oil, a simple dish but so perfectly balanced that it was elevated to something else. We literally couldn't eat another bite and refused dessert but the menu looked excellent.

Pretty darn outstanding authentic
Pretty darn outstanding authentic Italian food with good sized portions for all entrees. The Rack of Lamb and Salmon dishes were pretty amazing. The ravioli appetizer was special, wish there were more than 3 ravoili's thought

Great for a Date
I have diner here several times. What I like is that they will offer a prefix wine tasting menu. 3 courses with 4 wines paired.
The choice of food is great and wine even better. I have also went to the cooking classes which is always nice. The chef mixes in with the crowd and you can ask him some questions. Downtown Nyack is a great place and this restaurant is a gem.

Our party of 6 truly enjoyed their meals. I am the group's foodie with several trips to Italy and Italian American upbringing. I am a pasta snob and I have to say that my homemade pasta with duck ragout was as good as meals I enjoyed in Tuscany. The chocolate nocciolo dessert was outstanding and the check was very reasonable. A Nyack Icon continues to be consistently great.

We tried a variety of appetizers, including the ravioli sampler, the shrimp, the calamari and the salad. All were good. The pasta special which was a sampling of three pastas was excellent. Another special, the veal chop was also excellent. Everyone else had different pasta dishes and all were really good. The only dessert we tried was the tiramisu which was enough for two. Service was courteous and prompt even though it was a busy Friday night. We would definitely return

This was our second trip to
This was our second trip to Lanterna. It was a Monday and they offer Prix Fixe menus for lunch and dinner during the week. I opted for the Prix Fixe menu (3 courses) and had the beet and arugula salad which was delicious and quite big. The entrée was spaghetti with summer vegetables julienne style with a very light sauce. Delicious. Chocolate gelato for dessert.
My husband has the home-made crab cakes which were really good for an appetizer and the housemade lobster-stuffed ravioli. Everything was delicious. We will definitely go back.

We have dined many times at Lanterna and enjoyed the various delicious pasta dishes. This last visit, we decided to try something different and ordered the salmon. What a delicious surprise! Definitely on our favorite list.

Good Food / Cozy Place
Good food, several pasta options and good appetizers. The food reminds you of Tuscany. Casual setting, not stuffy.

Elegant and Delicious.
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.

Amazing Tuscan Cuisine
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.

FRANK & LUCILLE
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.

Great Meal, Exceptional Service !
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...

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.

A small but comfortable ambiance - food fresh and tasty --well-presented. Friendly service-good for casual meal without lots of noise.

Excellent quality and taste. Not over spiced. Very light. Mushroom ravioli was outstanding. Tiramisu was exceptional. Price Fix menu is a great value and the choices are varied. Service was impeccable.

Best meal in a long while!
We had read the very positive reviews, but were still surprised by how good each course was: Perfectly cooked, tasty but not overly spiced, interesting in a good way, and made with the freshest ingredients. This was our first time at Lanterna Tuscan Bistro, but certainly not our last.

Fine, Tuscan dining in Nyack
We dined at Lanterna Thanksgiving eve and our group of seven had a delightful dinner. As usual the pasta trio was well liked by all who had it, the service was impeccable, friendly, knowledgeable and well-paced.
