Stopped for lunch after a tour and was very pleased with this family run business. Overlooking the sea and cruise ships the food was freshly cooked and delicious. Service was good even though there was a language barrier. Highly recommend.

The fish is nothing special, most of it frozen. The dishes are pretty small compared to their price. The organisation has some issues , one of our plate came with a 30 minutes delay. had high expectations for this but it was such a delusion.

Very fresh fish and seafood. The involtini made from swordfish was excellent. I also recommend the insalata siciliana.

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...More

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

We enjoyed a great 4 course dinner with huge antipasti platters and an entertaining trio of George George and George who got us all up dancing. Food was plentiful and tasty, and they catered for the GF friend and the vegetarian amongst us.
