Good but not Great

Maybe my expectations were too high because I had heard so much about this restaurant on Thompson St. in the Village or maybe because I'm such a big Molto fan. It was a hot summer day and we didn't have reservations. My wife and I were pleased that we could just walk in and get a table. The staff... read more

Excellent menu and food, pleasant ambiance. Bartender/server Samantha was excellent at her job. The place is not huge. Definitely get a reservation.

We came here for lunch during Restaurant Week. We both had the three course menu which was especially for this occasion. Our waitress was personable and efficient without "hovering." We enjoyed the atmosphere. It wasn't noisy since we were there in the mid-afternoon. I am definitely keeping this on my list for our next trip to New York City;.

I have been here many times, with friends, and on business. whenever I am going to NY this is an absolute must. As the dishes change with seasons I could not suggest anything as everything they serve is fantastic. Once you go you will always want to go back. One of my top 5 restaurants in the world.

Lupa is one of our favorite places to be to when we are in New York....as always, excellent! We love the hand-made pastas and the delectable use of herbs. Great place. Our kids have always been foodies and very well behaved in restaurants, but Lupa is slightly dark and crowded and may not be the best place for families with... More

Ate here the other night with my mother, sister and teenage daughter on a visit to NYC. My sister had been here before and raved about it. It did not disappoint. The place is so cozy with lots of votive candles all over the place. It was a full house even on a Monday night and there was lots of... More

I have been going to Lupa for over 10 years and it always is a great dining experience. They have a great variety of pastas, fish and meat dishes, the vegetables are always tasty and I would recommend getting tartufo for dessert.

There's something about the casual ambiance at Lupa that pulls me into a great mood ---- but underlying that is outstanding service, and the always --- yes always! good food. Now I have to admit, I usually stop at the pasta level because after you've had it, you crave it. The ricotta gnocchi are good at Esca, excellent really, but... More

Small and intimate with a great atmosphere with a robust wine menu and great drink selections. Handmade pastas are all delicious. Show off and bring a date there.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
