The food was amazing and the servers knowledgable and friendly and willing to answer questions and provide suggestions. Have the veal steak! It's amazing and the best focaccia bread ever. Everything is great

A friend, a resident of the Vancouver area, invited us to dinner and chose this restaurant, saying that she had heard very good reports. The reports were proven to be true. The food was very good, but it was exceeded by the service: friendly, helpful and accommodating. Neither my wife nor I were particularly hungry, having eaten a substantial lunch... More

The best lobster risotto I've ever had!!! We started with the octopus carpaccio and buratta cheese that was imported from Italy. We shared the lobster risotto, which was the best I've ever had! And we finished off with the lamb shank and the pasta with the rabbit. It was truly amazing food! Brad was our server and had impeccable service!... More

There are a few restaurants that I return to time and time again when I visit Vancouver. This is one of them. The food is always excellent and the service is too. Their pasta with truffles is always a favorite but everything has been spot on. The location is so intimate and romantic but they also have enough room for... More

We booked online at Lupo after reading about it on the top 100 restaurant list. What a treat! We started with caprese salad and meatballs with polenta. The caprese was made with the most gorgeous buccata-wonderfully creamy and delicious. We moved on to bucatini with a spicy meat sauce and ricotta gnocchi with sausage . Just lovely. Finished if with... More

Great little find, this restaurant is located in a what seems to be a former single family dwelling downtown Vancouver. The setting is nice, quaint, more romantic than most restaurants. The service is excellent and the food did not disappoint. Started with a caprese salad that was as beautiful as it was delicious, followed by a generous half order of... More

Lupo takes classic technique and uses it on NW ingredients like ling cod saltimbocca and lamb shank ossobuco as well as standards like chicken cacciatore, steak Fiorentina, and ribolita. I agree with the 4.5 star rating that Yelp has averaged out but that choice isn't available to me and in the end I came down on the 5 side. My... More

Have been trying a few new places recently, rather than going to the same old spots. Decided to make reservations and try Lupo. Good call.! It's a nice old house, with very friendly staff. We shared the starters. The Meatballs, and Favada Iberica, both were very good. We also had the Prosciutto platter, which was ok, this one could have... More

Outstanding service and above average food. My quail was a bit dry; however, everyone else's dish was outstanding. The fish was perfect. Our waiter was on top of things and his explanation of dishes was salivating! The wine prices in Canada take some getting use to so would recommend boning up on your Italian varietals to find a reasonable choice.... More
