This is one of the best Italian restaurants on the Island, just up the road in the Old Quarter of town. Great service and really delicious food. Ivan is such a good host and an even better chef, well recommended.

Not much to rave about in terms of the location or decor .. but if good pizzas with an unpretentious, reasonably priced wine list are what you're looking for you won't go far wrong. A two person operation on the night we went.. owner/ chef...More

La Lanterna is an intimate Italian restaurant, hidden away in the old quarter of St Peter Port next to the new market, serving authentic rustic specialities.The proprietor is Ivan Pellegrini. Ivan is a native Sardinian and his friendly staff echo the Sardinian spirit: generous, spontaneous, family centred and thoroughly Mediterranean.The menu includes nice stone-baked pizzas, pasta, risotto, fish and meat dishes cooked in the Sardinian style. The wine list is dominated by wine from the region and represents exceedingly good value for money.This is a restaurant to savour, as are the flavours that come from the food.
