Giovanni Battista Lama (1673–1748) was an Italian painter of the Baroque period, active mainly in Naples. Along with Paolo de Matteis, he was pupil to the painters Luca Giordano. He painted historical canvases.

Note: He should not be confused with a fellow Neapolitan painter of the previous generation, Giovanni Bernardo Lama (1508–1579).
