Reviewed 20 July 2017

We visited La Lanterna twice. The first time the food was excellent but the second visit it was not the same. More people the second time, maybe that had something to do with the quality.
They have some special Sicilian food we didn´t see anywhere else in Giardini and overall La Lanterna is a nice place to have dinner. A very hot day/evening is perfect since it´s located by the sea a little bit outside Giardini (on the pier). We will eat there again!

Almost sat in the sea. Plenty of waiting staff. Very good food at reasonable prices. Ate here 4 times in total - one waiter speaks very good English

Very unfriendly staff. Staff gave us the feeling he does not want us to order anything!?! We left before ordering the food. I have not done that ever before

The service was so bad we left after ordering only the water. The waiter did not even make an effort to be friendly and had a super mean attitude.

Don't go
