The location appears quaint, the reviews generally appealing, but we ate our worst meal in Sicily on our first evening of vacation at this restaurant. My daughter's so-called frutti di mare salad was a mountain of octopus and nothing else. The pasta dishes were way too salty. My shrimp salad was topped with so much mayonnaise-ketchup dressing that it was... More

Pizza advertised at lunch, but no pizza. Fed 7 people with 3 appetizers for 110 euro. Ravioli was great, caprese delicious and bruschetta was perfect. Swordfish lunch ok, spaghetti bolognese was tasty. Views of the med are the best.

This place was very quiet for lunch whilst other places were booked out. They didn't seem very organised for lunch as they were still setting the place at 12.30pm and lots on the menu was unavailable. Pasta with ragu and meat dishes were of good quality whilst entrees of carpaccio and grilled sheep cheese were average. Service was fine but... More

We ate lunch here on a hot day and were pleased to find that even with the doors open the restaurant was still pleasantly cool. the portions served are very generous and you might consider sharing a dish if you only want a light meal. the quality of the "antipasti" is excellent. The only jarring note is that they apply... More

La Lanterna was warm and inviting on a Nov. night. Everything we ordered was delicious and served in a friendly, unpretentious manner.

La Lanterna is set on a side street off the main road. Look for the Pharmacy and you are moments away from the restaurant. The outdoor seating was very picturesque and comfortable.The food is of the highest quality. We were a table of four and most of us had the fish dishes. Very fresh and cooked to perfection. The service... More

Castelbuono has several good restaurants to choose from, but La Lanterna was recommended to us by someone local. We weren't disappointed. They have a huge a la carte menu to choose from - but I suggest you try the Antipasti Rustico, followed by their local pork and mushroom dish (a regional speciality). Please note, you'll need to speak Italian though,... More
