“As Italian as you can get!”
Reviewed 16 June 2010

My wife and I have been fortunate to be able to travel to the Santa Margherita/Portofino area each of the last seven years. Our favorite restaurant and there are surely enough to chose from, is Ristorante "A Lampara". Don't be confused with the two different spellings. It seems to go by both "A" and "La". Their business card says "A Lampara" so I'm sticking with that. But, get past the spelling and make your way just one short block off of the sea front to Via Maragliano 33 and the well selected and well prepared home cooking will be your reward. We have enjoyed both lunch as well as dinner there and upon returning home often talk about how their comfort food is the very best that we have found on the Italian Med.

“A much recommended restaurant by many hotels in the area.”
Reviewed 30 June 2008

The hotel that we stayed out recommended this restaurant for the first night that we arrived. They told us it was the only restaurant they recommended because none of their guests ever told them they had a bad meal. We had to take a late reservation (9:30 PM) because they were full but that was a Saturday night. It isn't a bad idea to make reservations anytime, especially if you want to eat between 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM.

The seafood dishes at this restaurant were great but I thought their pasta dishes were fantastic. Most of the places that we dined at in this area have great house white wines that were very good. We each had a primi patti, a secondi dish, a liter of house wine and one espesso with Sambuca. The bill came to about 60 euros. This is a very small place, only about 10 tables which makes it a nice cozy place to dine.
