Lanterna Ristorante

33 Queen Street, SCARBOROUGH, YO11 1HQ

1 rosettes

It has been honoured by Italian newspaper La Stampa as 'the English temple of Italian cuisine', which seems an extraordinary accolade for an unassuming, albeit heartily convivial, place in Scarborough, but then Lanterna has been here for nigh on 40 years. Its present chef-patron, the tireless Giorgio Alessio, has been here since 1997, and undertook a major redecoration of the place in 2013, bringing in warm contrasting colour-schemes of reds and oranges, and sunny yellow and sky-blue, in the two dining rooms. The menu continues to fly the flag for simple, well-handled Italian cooking of the classic school: carpaccio in olive oil and shaved parmesan; venison ravioli with egg and spinach; porcini risotto; fresh fish and lobster; veal in marsala cream; and the likes of baked pears in Barbera syrup, or copybook zabaglione, to finish. The winter season sees white truffles shaved over everything from pasta dishes and risottos to fillet steak.
