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.

I took to my Wife for Lupo for our Anniversary, I asked several times about making reservations. I was told only they only take them for parties of 8 or more. We sit down and my wife asks if we can sit to the table to our right...the waiter says oh no that table is reserved. Two minutes later a... More

Food here was a bit disappointing. We were looking for some good pizza - at the Beach. Not here. We had Margarita Pizza w/ salads. The salads were salty - not sure if it was the dressing or the cheese. The pizza was served - barely warm. It was a huge disappointment w/ crust that tasted like it had been... More

Lupo (which was previously Lupo Di Mar) used to be our favorite Rehoboth restaurant. Previously, they served fresh and innovative takes on Italian classics, e.g. Pork Bolognese, escarole salad. Now, the food is mediocre at best and the service is lacking. We were there twice in June. First time we had the new Bolognese - which is just a meat... More

Having visited Rehoboth Beach on many occasions, we had somehow overlooked this gem of a restaurant located on the first floor of the Hotel Rehoboth but we will be returning! The room is not large but the place is welcoming. After drinks at the tiny corner bar we were shown to our table where we shared an enjoyable dining experience.... More

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
