La Lanterna di Genova is one of Chiang Mai's most overlooked Italian restaurants. Located right off Taphae Gate, a few steps into the so-called Sunday Market street, it's a cozy little Italian with some great food. What I like most about this place is the pasta vongole (pasta with clams), which is the best in the entire city, as well as the thin and nice pizza crust. I had exactly the same dish, spaghetti vongole in formerly Pum Pui (now closed) and in Why Not, and definitely Genova wins: the taste is delicate with natural ingredients, well balanced.
Unlike some other Italians, where the sauce can be very rich or they add Knorr / Maggi in the food, Genova offers natural home made food.
The pasta isn't really al dente, which I like, but the taste is good.
The kitchen can be a bit slow, but it's worth the wait.
