Lupo Italian Kitchen on Rehoboth Avenue is where you can find fresh takes on Italian cuisine intermingled amongst coastal and regional offerings. Our produce is sourced locally and is mostly hand selected from the farms and markets dotted throughout the southern part of the state. Our menu consists of flavorful tasting items that welcome guests to try numerous exciting and exotic flavor combinations. Our fresh, line caught seafood is at the core of our companies philosophy and sits in abundance on our menu. Hand selected and crafted meat options resemble simple and delicious rustic fare. All of our delectable desserts are made in house with great care and attention. Our quaint sit down corner bar is similar in practice as we create tasty seasonal concoctions daily with every new batch of fruits and herbs that come in. A fully stocked wine shelf holds unique and acclaimed wine selections that eagerly await pairings.

Always good. Great service. Changed menu to offer new unique dishes. Fresh pasta. little pricey. Would like to see more traditional dishes and plain Italian bread.

Somewhat disappointing. Special sangria with citrus fruit came without the fruit...they said they ran out of fruit. The soft shell crabs were delicious as was the arugula salad. But the pasta and eggplant dishes were at best mediocre. The service was excellent, our waitress was positive and upbeat and the restaurant was clean and had a good feeling to it.

After a late lunch we were looking for a light dinner...which is almost always a trade down in quality...but not at Lupo! Great atmosphere, excellent food and service. Our waiter made us comfortable ordering items to share. The pizza with peppers,eggplant,ricotta,balsamic vinegar was thin crust,6 small pieces, and excellent. The Caesar salad had a faint taste of anchovy...perfect. My husband... More

My wife and I chanced upon this gem of a restaurant simply because a parking spot became available near it. (Finding parking on a summer evening in Rehoboth Beach is a challenge.) We entered Lupo through the Mediterranean yellow Hotel Rehoboth to find smiling greeters, friendly wait staff, a clean and airy decor of off-white walls and large framed photographs,... More

This is one of many restaurants created by the late Matt Haley. Known for his seafood restaurants, Lupo is a gem in the heart of Rehoboth Beach's crowded field of fine dining wannabes. Located in the Rehoboth Hotel, the restaurant is elegant with a staff that is up to the challenge. The Chicken Parmesan is lightly breaded and crispy, covered... More

The food was unbelievable! We had the beet salad, eggplant parmesan, pasta with italian sausage (homemade pasta), chocolate tart and lemon sorbet. Crust on Eggplant was crunchy. Maybe it was a polenta crust? Beet salad had crushed pistacios and blue cheese. I chose their least expensive red for the wine and was blown away. I regret not going back the... More

Greetings! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us! You selected your menu choices wisely I see, that beet salad will alter anyone's opinion of the root vegetable I promise! The crust on the eggplant is actually cornmeal for some added texture (but don't tell anyone!). I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself, we look forward to... More

What a find, so we went twice this weekend and a couple next to us drives a hundred miles every few weeks to eat at Lupo. A young, enthusiastic staff and a diverse menu with some real stars.

We found that Lupo had interesting Italian food at fair prices. We've had Brussels sprout salad before, and we're not sure the version served here with black truffles is our favorite, it was certainly an interesting dish. Other apps we tried such as the veal meatballs and calamari were quite good. Main dishes of Chicken Parm, and Soft Shell Crabs... More

Well decorated and easily accessible for guests of Hotel Rehoboth. The restaurant is very pretty and chic. Poor beer selection with nothing available on draft however the wine selection was much better with the majority being Italian. The service was lacking. However where the service was lacking quality of the food made up for it. I don't know that I... More
