Have been holidaying in the Pizzo area for the last seven years and with so much choice have never actually been to La Lampara before. What a mistake easily one of the best fish restaurants in the area, a big statement considering the amount of fish restaurants on this coast. Everything cooked to perfection ( try the tuna ) and...

Best meal in Pizzo by far. Had a wonderful octopus salad followed by linguine frutti di mare and some grilled swordfish. Wonderful service. Make sure you make a reservation - even if your hotel calls right before.

We decided to stop in Pizzo because Tropea was a little too far, we are so glad we did. The chef was gracious enough to talk with us and share with us the menu and how they were cooked. His passion for cooking was obvious. He made us a mix of fish to start which was a perfect selection of... More

I've been dining at "La Lampara" twice in a week. First time, as guest of some friends of mine, was pretty good, even if the grilled fish selection wasn't with big prawns as expected, but with normal shrimps. By the way, the service was fast, because there were only two tables dining. One of my friends took tuna with Tropean... More

Food is fresh seafood, caught that day. The dishes and service were excellent, and the price was very reasonable as well. Thanks so much Joe and Paolo!
