Lantana has the best food for the prices they offer. Their specials change daily and the core menu is extensive. The restaurant is cozy and the service is phenomenal. I never order chicken when dining out but their chicken piccata is unbelievable!

My husband and I go about once a week to The Lantana. The food is simple and excellent, the prices are fantastic, and the ambiance is cozy and warm. The waitresses are friendly and knowledgeable, and the wine list is extensive enough to please the average wine drinker, and pairs well with their dinners.

A must try! Consistently good food and service.

We frequently visit the Lantana Cafe because it is the best Italian restaurant in the Medford/Malden area. Though it is small, the ambiance is great with tin ceilings and warm red walls, candlelight and friendly staff. The food is excellent - I have never had a dish I didn't like. The spinach ravioli is especially good, as is the bruschetta. Great date restaurant!

I am always amazed at this place. I stumbled across it when I first moved to Davis Sq from Kansas. I was lost and looking for directions! They gave me excellent directions as well as the best calamari I've ever had. May not mean much from a girl who grew up land-locked with no fresh seafood in sight. But even after many nights at fancy restaurants in downtown Boston I always come back for the service, atmosphere and diverse menu. It's absolutely perfect for a first date or dinner with your best friends. Never mind that Hell's Angels have a tattoo parlor/gift shop down the street...don't let that discourage you. It's worth the danger!

We have just moved to the area and were sooo happy to find a wonderful brunch place! Great atmosphere, great food and very reasonable prices. Overall a fantastic find. Hoping to try the dinner menu soon, in fact, we may just have to go back there tonight!

Pros: Great find, food was terrific! Hidden gem.

Funky place and diverse menu. Everything -- from appetizers to pizza, dessert to wine, entrees to brunch -- is excellent! May need to make reservations for Friday and Saturday night. The place is small. For dinner, try any of the specials. For brunch, try the Lantana French toast.

My husband and I have visited Lantana Cafe on many occasions. We have always been impressed with the family service and how the waitstaff recognize us. Dinner always begins with delicious bread with fragrant spiced olive oil. Several of the appetizers are among my favorites, but the stuffed grape leaves are delicious and the grilled vegetable appetizer is nutritious, crisp, seasonal and perfectly seasoned.
On to the entrees! Don't bother with the run-of-the-mill American fair. Try the delicious mediterranean and italian dishes for a real treat. The chicken marsala has an unusually delicate maple-like quality to the seasoning and is my husband's favorite dish anywhere.
For dessert, try the tiramisu. It is top notch, light, not too sweet.
Also - the wine list is very reasonably priced.
