It's a cool little spot (tiny, really) where you can grab some decent local fare for a very low price. Don't expect gourmet, but a good bit of contadino grub.

The new management at La Lanterna deserves compliments for providing good traditional food and pleasant service at unbelievably fair prices. Lunch for two (antipasti, secondi, contorni, acqua, vino e caffe') came to just €16. The locale itself is small and - not surprisingly - proving to be very popular. It may be a good idea to book a table!

We dined at this small restaurant after a relaxing visit to the Terme dei papi. Despite the certificate of the excellence from TA, we felt slightly uncomfortable as we were seated. The place was filled with hideous decorational ornaments and they were playing a HEAVY METAL MUSIC in the spaker the entire time. Even an Italian couple behind us said... More

Would highly recommend the "tagliata" in this tiny restaurant in Vetralla. It is not often in this area where people tend to cook their beef to death that the concept of "rare" comes across as such. The service was also warm and friendly. Compliments to our young waiter and host. The one drawback might have been the bill: 8 euros... More

Friends who live in Vetralla (Fulvio and Mary Jane) suggested we dine at La Lanterna so off we went. What a delightful evening. A truly local establishment, the owner's sons served us and she cooked. And oh, what a cook she is. Incredibly fresh and delicious pasta bolognese, salad, wine…just tasty, fresh, home Italian cooking. This is a small restaurant... More

We are eating at many wonderful places in Italy during our two-year work stint, but this may be the best of all. And at reasonable prices as well, makes it a worthwhile detour. We learned about it from a local, always a good sign. Its dining room is simple, but the favors that come from the kitchen are astounding. I... More
