Very expensive food in comparison to the average quality...wine incredibly expensive. Rice was cold and fish was swimming in the oil. Even pizza was similar to a frozen one. Hope it was a single event but i won't try it again...

This may not be the most well-reviewed restaurant in Riomaggiore, but my family of four ate at several eateries in the village, and we felt that this was the best one. We enjoyed pasta with pesto, arugula salads, pizza and local seafood. Everything was delicious, and I would absolutely return.

Had a wonderful meal and drinks with some girlfriends on my last night in Riomaggiore. Chef and staff did the perfect job of making sure we enjoyed every bite! Definitely going back and would recommend to friends and family!

We enjoyed the prix fixe menu one evening during our stay in Riomaggiore. It included a choice of 3 mains and either an appetizer or dessert for 22 €. Portions were large so we shared one appetizer and one dessert. The food was delicious, especially enjoyed the seafood risotto (which was loaded with seafood) and the tiramisu was the best... More

We popped in to this place to get out of the rain in Riomaggiore. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise. We started with the Bresaola and a bottle of the house Chianti which was very nice. My husband and I each had a pasta dish and both were delicious. We noticed a lot of beautiful seafood dishes being... More

We heard great reviews of La Lampara, so for our last dinner in CT, we traveled from our place in Vernazza to Riomaggiore to dine at this restaurant. It was a bit disappointing at first because when my wife wants to order the tuna entree she was told they had run out of tuna, so she had to settle for... More

The sign outside said A/C and that bought us in, though I had read several great reviews beforehand. The service was friendly and perfect. The restaurant is in the upper part of town, hanging over the street so people watching is fun. The food was SO good. I had an arugula salad and we shared a pesto pizza that was... More
