The service and meal was excellent, complemented by Massimo's choice of wines. We went with six friends for Sunday lunch. I never leave Lanterna Blu feeling hungry. After lunch, Massimo will play the Grand Piano in the lounge.

Again and again this restaurant out performs. The mozzarella du buffala divine. Cherry tomatoes sweet, gently dusted with olive oil. The swordfish flaky and light. The fried calamari crunchy and slight salty with the tangy zest of lemon. I just have to come back more....More

The food is super fresh, well seasoned and in perfect balance. Massimo is the best host you can wish and the girls give you a smile at all moments. Go there and get the true Italian feeling.
