What do people think of La Lanterna?

I went there once, about 10 years ago, and thought it was nothing special. Has anyone tried it more recently?

    This is the whole tri-state...do you mean the one in Ridgewood NJ??

    If you do...my best friends love the place and go there a lot. I have been there a couple of times. I've liked it but I agree with you nothing special. Never had a bad meal, but nothing that made me say "wow". It is small, friendly and comfortable...so that goes a long way as well. and can't beat the BYOB or in this case BYOW!!!

      That one sounds nice. I was actually wondering about the one in Yonkers?

        We tried it last summer--it's still nothing special. The patio is very nice though, and it was pleasant dining out there--restaurant.com has $25 off coupons for what it's worth.

          Funny: That's the reason I was considering going.

          How many La Lanterna's are there? I know the one in Nyack. Are they all owned by the same guy??
