We have been going to this restaurant for over five years and it's still consistently good. Outstanding food and an eclectic wine list heavy towards Italian wines. If there is only one thing to pick on, it's the proximity of the small tables to each other. Other reviewers have commented on that as well. On a busy Saturday night, be... More

We started off with the mussels in caper-wine sauce. This was truly a delicious starter. The capers made this an exceptional dish. I'm making it another one of my favorite ways to saute mussels. It was followed by a cream of asparagus soup. Very tasty. And then an arugula salad with Marcona almond crumbles. I'd go back just for this... More

I have been for dinner once with friends, I am not that familiar with the entrees, but everyone I talk to, out of towners and locals, love the food. You are more likely to find me at the bar for happy hour! Would rather order several appetizers as opposed to one entree. But as I did research for this review,... More

Food was good but I didn't think it was quite worth the price. And the seating arrangement is too open. I felt like I was sitting with the table next ti me and in total public view of the street.

We have visited this restaurant twice and both times were great. They have one of the best gluten-free menus around! The only thing that would improve it would be gluten-free bread, but many restaurants don't realize how easy it would be to offer that as well. They offer pastas as well as lots of gf choices. And SO good! The... More

My wife and I returned back to Lupo Di Mare after a great meal about a year ago. We came on a Sunday night for the 3 courses for $19 special. For starters, I had the pumpkin soup and my wife had the kale salad. The starters were both very good. The disappointment came with the main course. We both... More

Fresh salads, interesting soups, great deals in the off season are all good reasons to visit. Half price pasta on Wednesdays. I can't wait to go back and try the chef's Sunday menu!

Ate here for the first time after wanting to try it for a few years. The food was EXCELLENT! Before we ordered, I was able to sample two red wines becuase I was having trouble deciding between the two wines I had never tasted before. They did this without me even asking. I started with an escarole salad that was... More

This was our first experience at Lupo Di Mare. I ordered Veal Meatballs & Pappardelle. There were 4 huge meatballs in a red sauce, roasted garlic, herbs, virgin oil. It was outstanding. We also ordered Grilled Artichokes (with sea salt, fresh herbs, lemon, virgin oil). While they were very good, we expected them to be warm instead of chilled. It... More

The Veal Meatballs & Pappardelle: with a sweet red sauce and roasted garlic is "to die for". It's the best dish in Rehoboth. They serve wonderful seafood and fish and the service is always outstanding.
