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.

Polite staff, great for breakfast or a quick bite at lunch. Conveniently placed at the beginning of the "tourist strip"

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.

I always spend part of my summer in Portovenere and I love Lamia's ice creams, especially when topped with Panna (optional). I think quality is simply outstanding and sizes are very generous and inexpensive if the ice cream is taken as take away and eaten while having a short walk. I don't disagree about the the fact that service is... More

Do you want a "real Martini" and not a vermouth Martini? This is the place Vincenzo and the brother Massimo will take care of any your "drinking" necessities with an incredible knowledgment and at a very reasonable price.
