Lunch with hubby

Popped into Lupa for quick lunch with my husband. It's been a while since we've been and they have added new items to the lunch menu, so more choice for the same reasonable price. Service was great and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Thoroughly enjoyed hour. Food was great.

This was our first visit to Southampton and we stumbled upon Lupa by chance after walking the streets looking for a decent looking place to eat. They had a lovely selection of fresh fish specials that day and two of our party decided to eat these. The portion size was great along with the quality, absolutely authentic and delicious! The...

Clean lines decor, music was a bit loud (not in tune either). The staff appeared a bit unhappy but efficient. Food was as expected for a Mediterranean venue.

Its always good and always fresh, they switch the menu around a lot as well. One time I had pan fried partridge another time veal in Palma ham but its usually... More

Booked a table of ten for my hubbies birthday having always had such a lovely meal before. This time however we were left disappointed, the staff to ages to come to take our orders and despite it being only 8pm had already run out of a few of the dishes. My husbands starter failed to arrive which meant that he... More

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 the...

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
