Better than any restaurant ever tried in London, at the lowest price ever paid! Higly recommended if you are after a proper taste of Italy!

Being situated on the seafront just outside the most visited part of Port Venere, this restaurant is ideal for a quiet lunch. Pizzas are excellent , crisp bases and a wide range of toppings. Prices reasonable for the location.

The mixed seafood pasta is the best I have ever had. It was served on a large plate that my husband and I divided. I was skeptical about eating octopus but it was my favorite food while in Italy. Even though it is not customary to serve parmesan in Italy, they had a small dish available. If I ever return... More

Harbourside terrace enhances this friendly locanda serving sea food, pizzas and much else. Lovely vermentino wine served by the glass. English-speaking staff (tolerant of basic Italian - as long as you try). with bags of local knowledge and happy - if not run off their feet - to help. Some rooms have a small terrace overlooking the sea front. Good... More

Nice terrace, OK service. Had a few drinks in there for a rest. The price was correct, but when ordered the coffees my gf really had like a finger. We didnt mind because we were quite tired, we ll try their kitchen next time

While other more 'classy' looking restaurants in Porto Venere were booked out for lunch today, we settled for this small establishment a little way from the throngs. It was worthwhile! The mixed fried fish was actually mixed fried seafood - delicious! A little more pricy for our food and drinks than we had expected, but then it is a very... More

La Lucciola is a rather casual but extremely well kept and superbly ran restaurant. Stefano and Roberto offer an amazing journey through a fantastically well executed regional cucine that starts with the surprise upon arrival of a freshly cooked "schiacciata". No matter what you order Roberto cooks it to perfections and Stefano serves it with a smile and with a... More

We arrived at 9 ordered at 9:15. The trofie were all gone, so we were offered linguine pasta but it's not home made. The set menu is good value pity it's only for a minimum of two people (which it doesn't mention in the menu) and the selection of three starters that comes with the menu is blind so you... More

Didn't actually eat in - but had take away for 2 nights and the pizza is very good. Lovely beer while waiting !! Parma ham and Cream cheese pizza the best. Busy and under pressure but staff good. They should cut the pizza - that's all! Otherwise very good.

This is a great family run little gem in Portovenere. If you are in the mood for something casual but of quality at a very affordable price La Lucciola is the place to go. The service is great as the location.
