We had seen mention of this restaurant in a guidebook or two, as well as the good reviews on trip advisor so decided to book up for when we were in NYC. I'm so glad we did! This restaurant is in a lovely area, and easy to reach by public transport. The restaurant was heaving, even on a week night... More

Lupa may have a high end pedigree (Batali, Ladner, Bastianich) but it is essentially a neighborhood joint. That is not a slight. This homey and comfortable place (except that it’s always packed) serves delicious and expertly prepared Roman comfort food. What could be better than their Bucatini alla Amatriciana? I have eaten this dish all over Rome and this stands... More

My fiance and I ate at Lupa recently for dinner. We arrived without a reservation and waited about 30 mins for a table. This was fine, as we enjoyed a few drinks at the bar in the meantime. The hostess was lovely, and checked our coats for us. It's an adorable Italian restaurant, dimly lit and cosy. We were seated... More

I have been to Lupa several times and the food is always very good. The service is excellent until you get to dessert. Then it seems to lag a bit. The place however is noisy and they pack you in like sardines. We had to get up everytime the table next to us wanted to get up. There was no... More

This is my second visit to Lupa, I had the Bucatini Amatriciana for the second time as well and it is beyond description other than delectable! The pasta I've ever had. Our table was very close to our neighbour (about four inches separating them) and they talked louder than us so it was a little distracting. Overall, a nice cozy... More

Had to meet our daughter mid-way between our homes. She has friends that work at NYU and suggested Lupa. The three of us our Italian citizens and felt the food was authentic and enjoyable.

We ate here mid February arriving just after 10pm and had a delicious meal. The gnocchi was the best I've eaten and my husband rated his saltimbocca also highly. Unfortunately they turned off the coffee machine so we weren't able to linger but the blizzard was on its way in that night due after midnight so presume everyone was keen... More

We had dinner at this charming eatery this weekend. Really loved the food and service here. My husband who is Italian said it was the best carbonara sauce he's had in the city! All I know is I devoured everything. The service was just charming and very welcoming.

Lupa is nice but the tables in the back are right on top of each other. The meal started with ice cold bread but that was really the only negative about the food. The apple and warm pancetta salad was delicious and big enough to share. The squash and parsnip pasta was delicious, The fish of the day was ok,... More
