A genuine unpretentious local restaurant, serving good local food.
Staff attentive and knowledgeable. They helped us select a wine that we thoroughly enjoyed and quickly resolved an issue with one of our dishes without fuss.

Alghero is full of tourist restaurants in the historic centre but La Lanterna is well worth the 10 min walk. Clearly popular with the locals the short menu has an interesting selection plus a range of pizzas.

The mussel and clam starter was one of the best I've had and seafood ravioli was unbelievable! Salt baked snails are an acquired taste but I thoroughly enjoyed them.

After nearly 2 weeks of good Sardinian food it was great to have such a fantastic meal on our final evening surrounded by locals and tourists all clearly enjoying the food and atmosphere.

We returned to this consistently excellent, local restaurant in a residential area of Alghero to find it was as full as it always has been - with locals! the food is superb, using excellent local and tasty ingredients and well sized to leave you full without being completely bloated. The fish is very good, and the pasta and pizza - it's always hard to choose what to have and they do great deserts too!

The place is really buzzy, full of families, friends, couples - all sorts! The service is personal, with English understood and spoken pretty well and advice given freely on what is good to eat. The menu is as seasonal as you'd expect.

Very good food and service, and less expensive than in the "tourist area". Exelent pizza selection. Opens at 19.00.

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of Agriturismo Vessus. He told us that this was where the locals of Alghero ate and he wasn't wrong, we were the only foreigners in the place.

When we arrived, the welcome was very friendly and the staff were very attentive. As soon as the locals started arriving and the restaurant filled up, we were forgotten about completely!! The service was possibly the worst that I have experienced in any restaurant we have ever been to! This resulted in us finally walking out! Such a shame as the food was very good.
