Called in on the off chance

Parked at the bottom of town on business, on returning to the car we decided to eat out instead of going home, so we walked up to La Lupa, not been here for a couple years, we had not booked and there was no problem with finding us a table, the service and staff were first class, together with... read more

The Food was fab although we did get a burnt garlic pizza bread, which was quickly rectified but I think if they couldn't pre-slice in the kitchen it shouldn't have come out. Overall very impressed with the service and would go again. The peroni was good too. Very friendly and accommodating for our 5 week old.

Love this restaurant. Each time we visit Southampton we head straight for this fabulous restaurant. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and such a wide coice on the menu. We went for the two courses from the lunchtime menu. Hubby had garlic with mozzarella bread, the size of a pizza, followed by carbonarra. I had the butterfly prawns with... More

I only had a main of pasta and a pint of lemonade but was very pleased with the food and overall experience. I'd definitely return at a later date, perhaps with company, to really exerience what the... More

After a long drive fancied something filling, so Italian was the choice! Greeted quickly, we took the Venetian Pizza and a Wild Mushroom Risotto. Pizza was lovely, great dough! Risotto was good, not amazing, but it hit the spot! Would recommend to locals as its pretty good value and not a bad bite at all!

Went here with a group of friends. Most of us had no complaints but the three of us who ordered the Della Casa pizza were disappointed that the chef forgot the anchovies. We were offered a bowl of cold anchovies to add ourselves which did not appeal to me. Instead of ordering an alternative and watching all my friends eat... More

This place always has a nice vibe. Good menu and not badly priced. Staff were ok but not amazing, but I was there for the food and conversation with friends so can't say that impacted on me too much. Modern decor. One of the better italians in town and great that its not part of a big chain!

Good food, however waitress was changed for some reason, she had been fine and continued to serve at other tables by an older difficult to understand woman who had a strong accent. Told that 2 of the puddings were not available on our "child menu" (there were only 3 on the list as it was) one of them being strawberries... More
