Lovely, will come back

Perfect in all aspects- atmosphere, masterfully prepared food without pretense, best ingredients, home made charcuterie. Tartuffo - made in many places, rarely they get it right, but they did here.

Had dinner last week. The salads, Octopus were very good. The best dish was the Saltimboca (highly recommend). The tartufo for desert was a nice way to wrap up the evening. Acoustics were not great, which makes it a better choice with friends than a business dinner.

We had the roman tasting menu. It consisted of a salad, 2 pasta dishes, braised ox tail, a cheese course, and desert. One of the pasta dishes in a creamy sauce with shallots and bacon blew my mind. The other pasta dish was just ok. I make a better ox tail myself. Service and wine were excellent. The company was... More

Every time we go to NYC we go to LUPA... this time it surpassed itself. The food was stunning ... embarrassingly so nice we ordered exactly the same on the 2nd visit. Great wine list. Delicious beetroot and pistachio salad.... mmmmm. Always busy so make sure you book.

We have eaten at Lupa several times. The space is crammed, but the food has always off set the space. We've had poor snobby service for the last time and will not go back and no longer recommend to our friends. There is no such thing as taking your time and enjoying your meal either as you must place your... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to try a new Italian restaurant in Greenwich Village and after reading previous reviews on Tripadvisor and Google, we chose this one and I'm glad we did! We made a reservation on a Saturday for 3:30 but we ended up arriving early. However, the hostess seated us right away. I was nervous because I read... More

Went to Lupa for an anniversary celebration at lunch. Had reservations & were surprised to be taken from the cheery, light-filled room at the front of the restaurant to the dark room at the back of the house. When my eyes adjusted to the dim lighting it was fine, but the tables are so close to each other, you're literally... More

I have been eating here since it opened -- could it be a decade ago? Friendly greeters, cheerfully try and find you a table if you're a walk in. I recommend making a reservation but if the weather is miserable, try it. Pasta specials are outstanding and are not skimpy...I was hungary but still had a third of the duck... More

Made reservations at Lupa on the recommendation of a friend. We were in the city for an overnight stay and while our hotel was in midtown, we decide the trip to the village would be worth it. Now it was one of the coldest nights of the year and we made a wrong turn out of the Subway, so by... More

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.
