After having the worst pizza ever on this blog in Sorrento at Divina Sorrento (link below) we walked through the charming streets in search of a real pizza that we could enjoy.  After leaving two almost whole pizzas on the table at the last place we were hungry and a bit nervous about trying another place.  I saw La Lanterna tucked away in a small alley.  There was a young man out front showing the menu.  I asked him if they had good pizza that we could get pretty fast.  He waved me in and said they had great pizza and our order would be very fast.  We entered on this day with light rain to find waiters dressed in suits.  Everyone smiling and welcoming us to the restaurant.  We took a table outside under an umbrella and the menus came quickly.  Our waiter was professional and polite.  This is an upscale restaurant that serves more than just pizza.  Everything coming out of the kitchen looked great.  Saw a lot of plates of very fresh mussels and pastas.  Would love to have time to sample many menu items here but we were pressed for time.  I ordered the Margherita Pizza (6 Euro) for our table.  The guy out front was spot on when he told us our pizza would be fast.  That Margherita Pizza was on our table in minutes and the restaurant was busy during the peak lunch period.  We were a bit tentative about trying the pizza after our experience at Divina Sorrento but I took a slice and bit in.  Yahoo....I thought.  This is good pizza.  Perfectly cooked crust and you could taste each ingredient as they blended together in perfect pizza harmony.  We devoured our pie and only wished we had more time to enjoy another one at La Lanterna.  Enjoyed the atmosphere, service and pizza here.  This place is a winner!  Click link below to read about the "loser" of Sorrento Pizza.
