Nice little italian

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

First time we have visited Lupa. Went for the Valentines night special and we're not disappointed. The menu was limited but what we had was very enjoyable. The staff were very pleasant even though they were obviously very busy. The complimentary box of chocolates was a nice touch to finish off a very nice meal. We now intend to visit... More

Very busy night, great atmosphere and good service. Food was o.k as they had to serve a lot of people and the staff where freindly. After dinner although on a small area when the tables where moved back great fun was had with the Xmas Disco.

We arrived to a pretty full restaurant without a booking and sat at the bar while we waited for our table. Meanwhile, we sipped a very good house red. Once at our table we both chose the veal in a mushroom and creamy sauce. The service was good and soon we were enjoying our meals. We followed up with a... More

We went to Lupa for my friends birthday upon my recommendation as I had eaten there before and was very impressed with the food and value. There were 4 couples and it seems that each time we all get together, at least one of us will have a poor experience with the food. As Lupa was a recommendation of mine... More

I came here last night with some work colleagues. We were offered drinks at the bar while waiting for people to turn up. The place was warm and had a fairly modern feel to it. The food was spot on! Portions were definitely enough. Mozzarella garlic pizza for starter made me half full already. But salmon spaghetti was to die... More

Popped into Lupa for a quick lunch with my daughter and found it very clean and staff very attentive. Food was fantastic. If you like pizzas the Italian way this is the place. My daughter who is very hard to please was delighted and it was too much for her in the end. To top it all with drinks it... More

I visited Lupa with my friend a week ago. Restaurant is well designed, service was efficient and professional. We went for a 2 course meal, which was offered on first page. I ordered mussels for starter and salmon for the main. Food was just delicious! Overall service and kitchen impressed me a lot, making my experience very satisfying. I would... More
