The old town of Sperlonga was built on a promontory for protection. La Lanterna is situated on the lower part of Sperlonga on the beach. As others have said it has a terrace which affords beautiful views not only of the old town but along coast to the Circeo at Terracina. The food was good without being fantastic and the... More

We saw this place shortly after getting to Sperlonga. It was 3pm we thought it could have been closed. But luckily the kitchen was still open. It was a weekday of May, so the restaurant was almost empty. What brought us there was the incredible terrace they have literally on the beach. They have 20 tables on the terrace so... More

We went here because the place looked fine and had a great terrace with an amazing view. The food however was a dissapointment. The best dish served were the fries, one of us got the wrong dish. The prices were quite high in comparison to the quality and quantity of the food. There was not that much to eat and... More

We have enjoyed several excellent meals at La Lanterna and would definitely go again. A good place for a leisurely meal overlooking the beach and views of Terracina, Monte Circeo. The service is more likely to be slower later in the evening so an early dinner is good. We have always enjoyed the fish and seafood dishes. The deserts can... More

We went there for dinner, quality was alright ,but nothing more and as it is quite exepensive , I wouldnt recommend going, good thing is the waterfront location and you could see the sunset, but considering the poor service and the mediocre food, it is not worth it

We stumbled across this place when looking for dinner one night and fell in love with it. I had a fantastic swordfish pasta along with a delightful traditional Italian lemon cake for dessert. With a bottle of wine on the side, this was a perfect meal. Our second meal was equally good on our final night in Sperlonga. All credit... More

After travelling through Italy for 2 weeks, we were a bit over pizzas and pastas, so we tried this restaurant last night and were so happy. We had local fish, calamari, and king prawns. Beautiful fresh seafood, washed down with local wine. Reasonably priced and highly recommended :D

We ate at this restaurant on Tuesday 29 September 2015 during a visit to Sperlonga. The service was good and the fish dishes we had were very tasty and freshly cooked to order. Not a wide choice on the menu but enough for us, the wine was also very good as was the dessert. At around €60 for the two... More

We are in Sperlonga again, and this restaurant was one of our favourites last time, but it has gone down in our estimation. The food was good, when it eventually arrived. We did not want "the full Italian bit" - anti pasti, primi, secondi, dolce and coffee, but only two courses and some wine. The restaurant was not particularly busy,... More
