As Matt's first Italian concept, Lupo di Mare offers a fresh perspective on Italian cuisine incorporating local produce and freshly-caught seafood into creative Mediterranean dishes. From tastes like hand-pulled mozzarella and braised pork bolognese, to char-grilled octopus and sea bass with butternut squash risotto, our menu diverges from typical Italian fare while capturing traditional flavors. Vintage European films unfold on-screen in our comfortably intimate dining room, clad in simplistic, Italian-inspired decor. An unassuming staff will guide you through our comprehensive wine collection and unique cocktail list to ensure an exceptional experience. Located in elegant Hotel Rehoboth in downtown Rehoboth Beach, Lupo di Mare is just steps from boutique shopping and minutes from the boardwalk. Stop in and see why the locals rave about Lupo di Mare.

This was our first visit to Lupo and what a delightful surprise ! A generous Italian wine list and tasteful small plates for appetizers . Special pasta dishes with great flavors . Service is excellent and the pricing is fair . Number one Italian restaurant in RB !

I know this review is redundant, but I just can't say enough good things about Lupo de Mare. My only complaint is that I love a couple of their items and if I only get there once on a trip, I have to have those items. They were closed 2 nights during our visit so we only got there once... More

Inviting restaurant in Rehoboth. Solid restaurant in RB always good service and food. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Flash fried calamari is supreme as are the shaved brussel sprouts, both appetizers. Cheese ravioli and wild mushroom linguini are both magnificant. My wife loves the spagetti with clams with garlic and chili. The New York strip is also a fabulous dish... More

We have been to Lupo many times and most of the time it's pretty good but not this time. Had the Sunday special, soup was good and hot. But it ended there, I had the 'porchetta' or so the menu said, it was a slab of fat with no taste, the husband had the spaghetti with mussels which was much... More

Stayed at Hotel Rehoboth the weekend of (02/20) and the first evening was very cold out so instead of walking or driving to find a restaurant we tried Lupo di Mare right inside the Hotel Rehoboth. Our dinner was excellent and the had a very good wine list. Staff was friendly and the service was good. John G. Huntington NY

When an italian restaurant has no options besides spaghetti size pasta it makes you wonder. Bread very enriched and not crispy. Don't order the brussel sprout salad...dry..tasteless.

We've visited this restaurant many times, New Years Eve was just great, only waited for a table 15 minutes, food & service was just great. We will go again and again.
