Little gem in Pizzo! The owner Barolo (spelling?) spoke perfect English and came out of the kitchen to speak with us. Simple food done excellently! He paired the freshest tuna with garden fresh arugula and a balsamic reduction that was mouth watering! Their menu changes every couple of days giving you the farm and sea to table experience! Vino paired nicely with the food and really set it off!

We went here on the recommendation of our hotel and we're definitely not disappointed. The food was fantastic, from the antipasti to share, to the gnocchi with shrimp and ham to the grilled fish, all delicious. The wine was good too. We went with the owner, Joe's recommendation, which made the evening easy and we would definitely go back.

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and what we had to eat was certainly very nice with good wine. The whole evening and experience was very confusing however. On arrival our table was ready, and before having sat down we were presented with a tray of fresh fish, but no conversation about what these might be, how they related to a menu or in deed what was on the special board on the other side of the restaurant. We eventually suggested we might like some tuna and some duly appeared, but that was it. I eventually asked if we had any more food coming and was told there wasn't so I suggested we might like some pasta, and then ran through several options until I hit on one that met with what was available. I think a previous reviewers words "lost in translation" might work here, and it was a shame, because the bafflement and game of 'guess the menu' spoiled what could have been a fabulous meal in a fabulous part of the world.

The resturant is a cozy cellar-vault, all italian setting, with many of the Pizzo inhabitants as regular guests. La Lampara is run by a California, USA brought up italian chef who returned to Pizzo with his parents when he was in his teens. The food is exeptional. Try the somked tuna as a starter and follow the recommendations of the chef or the waiters (all family) for the daily catches.
