This place was just ok. My carbonara was so salty as to be almost inedible (and I know well that Italian food is generally oversalted, but this was in a whole separate category of salty). One reviewer mentioned that locals get preferred treatment. I sort of expect this, and it doesn't generally bother me. However, at one point in the evening, three regulars were eating their pasta course while everyone else in the restaurant - all of whom arrived after the regulars - had no food in front of them for about 20 minutes. It was actually a bit funny; then all the pasta arrived all at once. Prices were a bit higher than some other similar places, but that in itself wouldn't have bothered me if I could have finished the carbonara and if the kitchen/service wasn't so chaotic. Again, nice servers; they just need some organization. So, overall, not terribly impressed.

More expensive than Orso 80 down the road, and the service is certainly not great. Very slow service, they are more interested in having a chat among themselves, than serve. The restaurant was filled with mostly tourist though, so therefore the elevated prices, and the indifferent service. The food was nice though.

My wife and I visited the Lagana 2 years ago when staying at the Hotel Adriano
Our concierge Giovanni again re made a booking for us and we again enjoyed excellent hospitality, food, wine and Italian atmosphere with fantastic staff and extremely high quality of food

Once found this restaurant is never forgotten nor were we from two years ago

This is a very well priced and exceptional quality restaurant you will always return to as did we

We ate here after stumbling across it on our way home. There was a queue (even at 10pm) so we waited 30 minutes for a table. Several tables of 'locals' were seated before us and clearly got preferential treatment once seated. Whilst I understand and respect that locals are the backbone of their business, we really did feel that the visitors were second best. The food was good but the wait was long and we had to ask several times for the wine and then the account. I'm sure there is better in the area
