A nice little locally owned restaurant. Authentically prepared meals, diverse selection of dishes on the menu. Friendly attentive wait staff. A must try. Outside dining on those warm San Mateo nights. Lovely atmosphere.

Pros: Location-price

The best house made tortelloni I've ever had! We get take out from La Lanterna since we work near by. The antipasti is very good and so are the salads.

I came to La Lanterna with a group of girlfriends for a nice dinner out on the town last weekend. We were so impressed with the service and the quality of the food. It seems that so many places are slacking on the small things- not here!

We heard really great things about La Lanterna on Citysearch so we booked a birthday dinner there. They accommodated our group of 18 in the back room so the privacy was appreciated. However, perhaps because we were out of sight, the

Pros: Really fresh food, really nice staff, not dark and overcrowded

I have been here a few times: with my husband for a romantic dinner, with my friends for a mom's night out, and with extended family for a birthday dinner. I enjoyed it immensely all three times. We have some picky eaters in my mom's club, but the menu please us all. I have had the Gnocchi di Frommagia and it is wonderful! The minestrone is also quite nice.

We have been several times. We love the appetizer and the mangers. They are so nice, seat us promptly and always recommend a great bottle of wine. Customer service is excellent and we have enjoyed our food every time. I've had the risotto

Pros: Food, Service, Atmospher

I don't know if my view is skewed because I dined here on a slow Wednesday night, but I still paid full price so I would expect the best. The minestrone soup was tasteless, it had cabbage in it??? and no beans. I ordered a seafood
