The menu is good, service was good, somewhat pricey.
Best waiter in town! Great food and service. Would go back in a heartbeat!
La Laterna is definitely a neighborhood gem. Tucked away on 25th Avenue in San Mateo. Decorated with lights and a cozy feeling walking in. This restaurant also has cute booths for a more romantic dinner atmosphere. The food is fabulous. The bread is terrible. They really do need to upgrade their bread. Everything was great. The service is good especially for a very busy New Years Eve. Definitely a recommend!
New Year's Eve dinner. Awesome. Visit many times during the year for a great dinner out
Pork entree was excellent. I ordered wine by glass - suggest waiter bring bottle and glass and allow customer see label - and pour wine at table rather than bring wine already poured.
We have dined here many times. This visit the food was good as always, but service was not as usual. We arrived for a Friday 7:30 reservation and were seated on time. The tables were all taken so they were very busy, but service was very slow. After waiting about twenty minutes to order every course arrived slowly. We had to ask for the first bread basket and never got water refills. We will come back, but will arrive before 6:00.
Delightful Italian graciousness, and excellent food. We'll be back!
La Lanterna is a true neighborhood gem. The servers a friendly and welcoming, and the food is always a delight.
very nice neighborhood restaurant. good value. excellent service by Vito our waiter. ran into friends entering and exiting so very comfortable feel. will return.
One of our consistent favorites! Pasta is always an excellent choice as are any of the entree ‘s. The wait staff was great and we had a great dinning experience. Our mom is very very picky and even she was happy!
