I have lived in Shrewsbury about 25 years and I have tried most restaurants in town. Tonight we stumbled across La Lanterna for the first time .... and it was amazing!
Such an authentic feeling to the place, and the food was delicious!
On top of that everything was very reasonably priced and the service was excellent!
I can’t praise it enough - we will be back very soon!

Eight of us visited the restaurant on Saturday night after booking a month or so ago. We all loved it. The food was delicious, the wine was flowing and the service was perfect.

It's a tiny place and with 8 of us turning up we may have been a little noisy for such a small place (sorry about that) but we were very well looked after.

We'll be back if they'll have us on the next visit to Shrewsbury!

La Laterna is a real find in Shrewsbury! What a fantastic surprise to find authentic Italian food here. The place is small, but the food is excellent, and the staff is fantastic. Highly recommend going out of your way to go here if you're in the area!

Funny little venue and great italian food. The service was good. Only downside is the serving and eating area is a bit dusty - the kitchen has a good hygiene rating though. Good value lunch.
