Description: La Lanterna is an intimate Italian restaurant, hidden away in the old quarter of St Peter Port next to the new market, serving authentic rustic specialities.The proprietor is Ivan Pellegrini. Ivan is a native Sardinian and his friendly staff echo the Sardinian spirit: generous, spontaneous, family centred and thoroughly Mediterranean.The menu includes nice stone-baked pizzas, pasta, risotto, fish and meat dishes cooked in the Sardinian style. The wine list is dominated by wine from the region and represents exceedingly good value for money.This is a restaurant to savour, as are the flavours that come from the food.

Great menu and good selection of wines. Staff attentive and excellent service. We ate fish which was superbly fresh and well cooked.

Tucked away just off Mill Street with a neon sign advertising pizzas but this is no ordinary pizzeria. A warm welcome and then you have an exciting choice from the menu with several unusual dishes. I had culurgiones (like mini Cornish pasties) but with a potato and cheese filling which were delicious and the best zabaione ever. The house red was very good. Much recommended.

I held a birthday celebration for 22 people at La Lanterna last month. The whole evening was fantastic; the food, the wine and the staff were excellent. We all had a very good time and Ivan's food was up to his usual delicious standard, Thank you so much for helping to make my birthday so special. Julie

Our service was impressive and involved Chef Ivan himself who left his kitchen to discuss our options and preferences. We sampled an astonishing range of Italian and Sardinian mezze platters which were fresh, colourful and delicious.
I particularly enjoyed the wild boar pie/pasty, stew and pizza.
The restaurant was comfortable and atmospheric and the wine selection delightful.
If I absolutely had to offer constructive criticism?
A little less salt in the dishes would have suited me better, but I should have said so at the outset.
