Patio Lantern has the best hands down donair pizza in Truro, NS. I enjoy all their food but I love their donair pizza. We get pizza here usually every week.

We have been in Truro for 3 days (from Alberta) and have eaten the donairs two days in a row now - fantastic home made donair meat - and my husband is very fussy when it comes to donairs!!

We go here all the time, the food is great!! The local owner is especially nice and you can tell he actually appreciates your business. Even when they are really busy he goes out of his way to say thanks for coming in. I've had almost everything on the menu, it's all delicious. The portions are all huge as well.

This is the third time I've arrived after 30 minutes and had to wait 30 more for my food. I even asked the lady today 'will that be an hour' and she said 'no, 30 minutes'. Never again. Your inspection reports for some reason cannot be seen on the Department of Agriculture's website which makes me question the validity of... More

We came to Patio Lantern for supper on a Thursday night. We arrived at 8pm and were treated with hostility from the beginning - I guess 8pm is too late to dine in a restaurant? The server was agitated and took our orders and left. A lot of time passed before we were brought our water and all our food... More

I love ordering out at The Patio Lantern! We live close by, so it is a very convenient location to order from. I really love their garlic fingers, BBQ chicken pizza, potato skins, and veggie max pizza. Last night I tried a veggie oven sub for the first time, and it was amazing; loaded with fresh veggies and pineapple too!... More

We get take out from here quite often. Always good, fresh & hot. Donairs are a favorite. The 10 piece fish & chips feeds our family of 6 & 1/2 for $30 easy. Batter is a bit thick, but always fresh and flavorful. Our family has been getting pizza here for years.

Visiting the area from another province and staying in Truro area. Randomly stopped at the Patio Lantern and ate in. Absolutely the best pizza ever eaten anywhere = delicious (we had BBQ Chicken). The garlic finger appetizer was delicious and the home made donair sauce was awesome. Staff were friendly and polite. We arrived late, the waitress was going off... More
