Lacco Ameno is a town and "comune" situated in the northwest of the island of Ischia, in the Gulf of Naples off the west coast of Italy. The town has a population of around 4,600 inhabitants.

It is located at the feet of the Mount Epomeo, facing the sea. The name most likely derives from the Greek "lakkos", meaning "stone". The name "" was added to the official name in 1862.


Lacco Ameno is home to a 11th century church, built over a pre-existing Palaeo-Christian edifice. The Museum of Santa Restituta houses several prehistorical findings and Greek ceramics from the 8th-2nd centuries BC.
