Had a good meal in Lampara, the chef even made an appearance but somewhere it was lost in translation, the head waiter was trying to control too many things and was flustered. Overall the experience wasn't as it should have been.

We visited La Lampara in 2015 and returned. Same great experience. Food was good. The waiter speaks no English (although the owner/chef did--he lived in the US for years). We will definitely go back if we return to Pizzo.

Family run in a decorated room with objects, paintings and murals representing traditional hunting swordfish and tuna. Intimate, pleasant and friendly, where the cuisine is very local with fresh seasonal fish and regional wines.
