Just misses 5 stars

I hate NOT giving this place 5 stars. The only reason I didn't was that some of the food, like the plain lasagna was only very good-- not spectacular. (The desserts, and the liquor coffee, on the other hand, WERE spectacular.)

The service was incredibly good. So attentive I felt like I was in a hospital on life-support! Are you okay? Can I make you more comfortable? The manager came over several times, and treated us to something very sweet at the end of the meal. (I'm talkin' drinks here. Don't get any ideas!)

There are more nooks and crannies in this place than on a Thomas's English. We sat in the back garden. There's also a funky upstairs and an intimate, low-light downstairs.

I'll be back here, probably more than once. Too bad I can't give it 4 1/2 stars. --Eat Club is a roving group of NYC gluttons

A Downtown treasure

I adore this caffe'. Nothing spells a perfect NY Saturday to me more than being able to sit at La Lanterna with a book and a cappuccino. Perfect location, wonderful light...if only they could get a handle on the dishwashing noises....

Cute Garden Italian Restaurant

Romantic and cozy. I really like their dessert here. Great tiramisu and flavorful gelato. Entrees were good too; I got the prociutto pizza and my bf got their pesto lasagna and both were yummy. The funny thing is there is a lady reading tarot card right next to us. IT is kind of eccentric.

Beautiful outdoor garden in the back btw for those seeking dining in the green.

great REAL italian pizza for low prices, with a lovely garden to sit in the back. don't miss this place b.c there are lots of other italian restaurants that will charge twice or more for the same thing.

Maybe if you are masochistic...

What made this place unique? The worst service in five boroughs... want your waiter to treat you like your most crazy ex used to? Try out La Lanterna. Like snarky answers to simple questions? Would you like to be denied a napkin or a glass of water? This is your place.

Extremely Over-Rated

After reading all of the reviews for La Lanterna Caffe, I expected this place to be the perfect Valentine's Day dinner spot; boy was I wrong. I can certainly deal with the slow, absolutely flat and disinterested service on a holiday evening, but the food was shockingly bad. I've had better lasagna come out of a microwave in comparison to what was plopped in front of us. The cheeses they used were completely separated, and it was obvious that they were just re-cooking giant batches of lasagna being carted in every five minutes by surly kitchen staff who seemed to take some glee in allowing the door to the outside SLAM constantly. The lasagna was truly awful, all of the cheese solids were clumped up into a disgusting mass and all of the oils had COMPLETELY separated. If eating not just over-cooked, but poorly reheated lasagna with enough separated oil to make you think you were eating grease soup sounds good, be sure to go to La Lanterna Caffe for their Valentine's Day lasagna dinner.
