Was in VCR with my son, who was going for surgery the next day and discovered Lupo across the street from our hotel. We wanted some place close, with a quiet atmosphere as we wanted to have a conversation and hear each other. We sat in the enclosed front porch which was somewhat intimate and not overly crowded. Chris, was... More

Checked Trip Advisor for the best restaurant near us - up popped Lupo, which surprisingly was just steps away from our hotel. From the first moment we walked in the door the service is top notch. We arrived about 6:30 on a Sunday night, without a reservation and with our fingers crossed. They managed to squeeze us in without any... More

I would guess that like many locals, I had long thought of Lupo as a dull, institutional Italian spot that had been around for years and had failed to change with the times. I could not have been more wrong. Earlier this year, a friend invited us to a private birthday party, set in the restaurant`s tiny but beautiful wine... More

Lupo gave us the "front room" (a converted porch on the front of the house that is the restaurant) for a group of 12. The space worked perfectly, and the food was simply excellent, despite having a limited group menu. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a group dinner. The restaurant is in an old home, so the space... More

...are both a must in terms of appetizers. Most of the entrees are also good. I normally get the truffle pasta with chicken and peas.

I'm a regular. I've never had a food item here I didn't like. Great wine list too. Ask the manager for wine suggestions.

Took my wife for our last night in Vancouver and i can say it gave us a great farewell. The restaurant is small and intimate. The service staff are very friendly and attentive. We ordered the meatballs as the appertizer and it was great. 4 meatballs nice and fresh on a bed of polenta. Just the right size not to... More

This place is a delight tucked away in a quiet street away from all the hustle. The staff are always welcoming and the ambience relaxed. Great wine list and the food is always superior. The fact it hasn't dipped in our estimations over 6 years shows definite standards. In fact our third meal was probably the best so far. We... More

This is a great place - and we just fell on it due to reviews on TripAdvisor! It is located in a downtown area, very residential. In fact it is in an old home that has been restored and preserved beautifully. We had great service, a wonderful meal, and service was very good. We tried a special for the evening... More

Well, I hadn't been to Lupo for a very long time. And it sure has changed since it used to be Villa de Lupo! Still has that great (and I mean really really good!) Italian food but wasn't crazy about the new decor (very "upscale" minimalist). Gone was the cozy restaurant I once visited replaced by a somewhat retro 60's... More
