We stopped by for a quick snack and a glass of wine after a long hike and with just 25 minutes before our boat left. The guy who took our order was great when we explained we were in a rush, and he had the food and wine on our table in minutes. The focaccia was delicious with ham, cheese,... More

Nice comfortable, a quick stop over for a coffee break. It's got a nice view to the lake but also busy with tourist movement. Not a bad place for a quick coffee.

We visited Bar Lamia on several occasions during our week long stay in Portovenere. Very friendly and efficient staff. Enjoyed the local beer from La Spezia - Birrificio del Golfo.

We had a great ice cream here. Definitely recommend dark chocolate, nuts or forest fruits flavors. Also the price was reasonable, only 2€ for two flavors.

Bar Lamia was just steps away from our hotel Grand Portovenere, so conveniently it became our favorite spot for Gelato. We seldom missed a day or evening and were always welcomed back with a smile. You can order at the window to go or sit down comfortably at the table in the front. We did both:) Popular spot, great gelato... More

Piadina excellent (wrap usually hot with various fillings - we sample smoked ham and gorgonzola), lots of people stop in for early evening cocktails after the tourist crush has left. Fully recommend their cocktails You might struggle for a table at lunchtime or when the boats dock as it is immediately in front of the walk to the boat departure... More

We stopped off here after a wader around the streets of Portovenere as it was the only place we could find with a table empty for four people. After spotting huge dishes of ice-cream being delivered to the people at the next table, we ordered ice-cream to accompany our glass of local vino...and were very glad we did as it... More

Great place to meet friends and spend some time nice and quite looking the people strolling on the promenade. If you are a connoisseur of spirits and wine this is your "Home" one of the best selection of single malts and fine cognac.
