The guys at La Laterna were lovely to invite me to their 1-year birthday party, and I couldn’t miss this as I love Italian food and it sounded fun.

I have been here several times but only ever done one review (you can view it here).

For me, up until last time, it was just so-so, and my last visit was nice. Don’t get me wrong, I am not sure why I felt this way but it was just how I felt so I was looking forward to going back and trying the food again.

Tonight we were told there would be food to sample, tapas style which was in keeping with the new menu and some cocktails plus music….this sounded like a fun night.

Inside is very cosy, it’s not the biggest restaurant but has a really nice atmosphere.

The Food

The food was served up in a buffet style which was perfect for tonight’s party, that way everyone could help themselves to what they wanted and how much

I was told tonight that here was changing their menu to be Italian Tapas, which I think is a good idea as its becoming a very popular trend.

They brought out round 1 of the food, so I headed up and took a little of everything.

Round 2

Round 3 & 4

Round 4

As you can see everyone tonight was spoiled, and very very well fed.

The food tonight some will be found on the new menu, and some were just for tonight. Due to this, I will tell you the ones I liked from the above.

I narrowed it down to my top 5 from tonight.

The first looked like a small calzone, and it basically was and the flavour was so so good!!! so good I had to have 3 🙂 Next was Arancini and WOW so so good again!! the flavours were perfect and again I was a little greedy and had 3 🙂

The pasta came out near the end and it was worth the wait, there were three types I only sampled two. One was a meatball pasta and one was a crab/prawn pasta, both the flavours were perfect and very very moreish.

Overall :

I am very impressed with everything tonight, and more so the food! The last few times I have been here I enjoyed the food but thought it was just ok…..tonight really changed my mind and can’t wait to come back to try more of the new menu.

I am very happy I got this invite and could be part of the celebration with everyone tonight, congratulations to everyone and thanks again 🙂

See you soon!!

Grazie mille
