What a wonderful place to have our last meal in Copenhagen. This place was recommended by the gentleman we rented our apartment from. It was a bit out of the way but in a great way. We dined on the early side to accommodate my in-laws (who were paying for dinner tonight!). There were already a couple of tables taken... More

Had dinner here with a group of colleagues. We had the tasting menu. The food was excellent and so was the wine. Very friendly service. Would highly recommend

I have been coming to La Lanterna for the last 10 years or so, both for pleasure and with business associates, and I have yet to be disappointed. The standard is high, the dishes are 100% authentic Italian just the way we all like them, and the service from Michele and his wife is unfailingly warm, hospitable and efficient. The... More

I went here with my partner purely on tripadvisor recommendations and was not disappointed. It was probably one of the best meals I have ever had in Copenhagen. Excellent service with amazingly good food...highly recommended.

A little bit of the beaten track you will find this hidden gem! If you know what to look for - La Lanterna is a 10-15 min walk from Vesterbro, 5-7 min from the Falconer Center. La Lanterna is a family-runned restaurant, small with great atmosphere. The owner and waiter gave us great service. We was recommended todays-menu and it... More

After success with a TripAdvisor recommended restaurant in Brussels when we arrived in Copenhagen we again sought out TripAdvisor recommendations - and we are glad we did! This restaurant is wonderful. Superb food, we had the carpaccio to share as a starter and then I had the duo of fish, salmon and sole, and my wife had the risotto special... More

Visited this charming family restaurant recently and was surprised at how delicious the food was - all three courses we had were of a high standard. I recommend the wine Ronchendone Rosso 2012 - we literally savoured each drop! The service was efficient and effective. I would go again.

This is without a doubt one of my favorite restaurants in Copenhagen. The best service in town, and also the food is absolutely wonderful. We enjoy coming here every time we go. Thank you for La Lanterna, you should really go there!

Very nice place, nice decor, good quality table linen and glasses: years of care have been taken over these things and it shows. Had the best scallops I've ever eaten for starter. Then a proper al dente risotto - this was a bit salty but nice nonetheless. For main it was monkfish, again very nice but it was served with... More

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
