Love was most certainly in the air this February at La Lanterna! Not only was our special 3 course Valentine's Menu devised for one day only, but we enjoyed a month of fantastic competitions to give back to YOU - our wonderful customers. From Valentine's menus to chauffeur-driven Mercedes, here's what we were up to celebrating the season of romance...
We kicked off the month competition of the season, courtesy of yours truly and Stanelydrive Chauffeur Services. That's right, we offered one lucky winner and their partner of choice a Valentine's Day experience sure to send sparks flying. The grand prize included this butterflies inducing line-up:
• Pick-up & drop-off in a chauffeur-driven S Class Mercedes-Benz.
• Mini bottles of Lanson champagne, chocolates (plus a red rose!) during the drive to La Lanterna.
• A three-course Valentine's Day meal for two at La Lanterna on 14th February.
• 'Glasgow by night' tour by car on the journey home.
To enter, you simply had to like the La Lanterna and Stanelydrive Facebook pages, and comment with who you would share this special prize with.
You entered in your droves, with over 250 of you vying for your chance to win. Alas, there could only be one winner on this occasion, and we were delighted to announce that the very lucky Leanna Mccormack from Glasgow was grand WINNER! She and her husband David were picked up Valentine's Day and brought to La Lanterna for an evening of wining and dining.
Not to mention, we only JUST managed to convince Luca to get out of the car beforehand so Stanelydrive's chauffeur could go and collect the happy couple...
The giveaways didn't halt there either. Every guests that walked through our doors on February 14th was greated with the below, our photo wall of love!
We asked you all not to be shy and step up to have your Valentine's Day photo captured and added to our wall. What's more, every diner who had their photo taken, had the chance to win a meal for two. We posted the final love wall masterpiece to our Facebook page, and asked everyone featured on it to tag themselves in the final photo:
Once again, you rose the challenge, with most of the evening's guests flocking to Facebook to tag themsevles and their significant other. The lucky twosome? The lovely Ivy and James from Glasgow, who were so excited to win, they wanted to rush back to La Lanterna and enjoy their complimentary meal right away! We were so happy to welcome them back at the weekend for round two, where they enjoyed another Italian feast.
Thank you to everyone who entered both our competitions and blew us away with your lovely stories and romantic quips. To those who missed out, never fear! We can guarantee you we'll have future competitions coming your way.
