A wonderful evening shared with friends amongst a great and lively dinner party atmosphere, with delicious, tasty authentic Sicilian cuisine prepared by a native Italian chef.

This lovely Italian restaurant is off the beat and track in Mill Street in the old town of St Peter Port but is well worth a visit. We were made to feel so welcome and the service was amazing as was the food. What is...More

Trip Advisor reviews way off about this place and have no idea why it’s so highly ranked. Basically a grubby cafe ambience, disinterested staff and pasta portions ludicrously small. Plus the usual Guernsey vibe which is anti teenagers dining with parents just in case you...More

La Lanterna is an intimate Italian restaurant, hidden away in the old quarter of St Peter Port next to the new market, serving authentic rustic specialities.The proprietor is Ivan Pellegrini. Ivan is a native Sardinian and his friendly staff echo the Sardinian spirit: generous, spontaneous, family centred and thoroughly Mediterranean.The menu includes nice stone-baked pizzas, pasta, risotto, fish and meat dishes cooked in the Sardinian style. The wine list is dominated by wine from the region and represents exceedingly good value for money.This is a restaurant to savour, as are the flavours that come from the food.
