Great but not favorite Roman spot in NYC.

Ever since going to Rome, every time I travel, I seek out Roman restaurants to recreate the feeling I had when eating on side streets in Trestevere. I head read online that if I wanted authentic Roman cuisine to visit Lupa. I went around 6pm after a business meeting and was able to grab a seat at... read 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.

My wife and I have been going to Lupa since they opened in the 1990s. We just came back for a fresh visit and are glad to report the food is as good as ever. We each had the Caccio e Pepe to start followed by some octopus and saltimbocca to share. It's possible that the the food here is... More

The knowledgeable wait staff guided us through the pasta offerings so that our party of four ordered just the right amount of pastas that did not disappoint. The bartenders were most familiar with the selection of Amaros available.

I started my meal off with the cuttlefish appetizer (see my photo), $16, which I enjoyed. It had a lot of different flavors and textures in it. If you have never had it, it is similar in texture only to squid. My main course was a BIG disappointment. I had the Quail ($25), one of my favorite dishes elsewhere. Unlike... More

We tried Lupa based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and our waitress was delightful. We arrived at 6:15 for dinner on a Monday night without a reservation but were seated immediately at a great table for two by the window. We would definitely return.

Not our first trip for dinner. Excellent wine selection. Food favorites include the olives, prosciutto de parma, Bavette Cacio e Pepe, and the Sabato. Pass on the sweet corn capellacci, just OK. Food is simply excellent. Every time. Space is tight, but it's New York City. Love the front room. Service started out just OK. Knowledgeable, yes, snotty and disinterested... More

it was our second visit at Lupa, we go at this restaurant as a annual happening .The food ,the service was like always perfect. Our waiter was Diego a Gentlemen. The only "bemol" we would say is the choice of music maybe too heavy and stong, but other than that amazing experience. Thank you

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.
