Same As It Ever Was: Lampo Is Back

A friend calls it the biggest Charlottesville food news in years. Lampo is back.

When regulars dined at Lampo on March 14, 2020, they never imagined they’d have to wait more than 800 days for their next visit. After letting the days go by for more than two years, the next chance comes today, August 4, at 5 pm.

Much has changed since March 2020. Lampo went from no takeout to takeout only, and even opened a second location just for takeout. But, the plan for the original Lampo is: same as it ever was. Same menu. Same faces. Same food. Plus, they plan to reintroduce their practice of daily specials, allowing the kitchen to have some fun.

For now, Lampo will have limited hours: Thursday through Saturday, 5 pm – 12 am. Look for expanded hours soon. Meanwhile, the takeout location remains open Wednesday through Sunday from 11:30 am – 9 pm.
