Great Italian Experience

Loved the intimate setting, our server was Italian and really helpful and attentive. The food was incredible. Freshly prepared and the menu is always changing which shows they are at least paying to attention to seasonal ingredients and trends. Drinks were great and desert was also a win!

Lupa was hands down, altogether wonderful. We couldn't decide on the menu so our waiter took note of what we were possibly deciding on and built our party of 6 a fabulous spread from the beginning to end. The cocktails were divine. The wine list was impressive. Can't say enough about this place. Great for a group, or small romantic... More

Outstanding in every respect: food, service, wine list, ambience. Stinging nettle fettucini with veal ragu was sensational, enough to share as a starter for two. Grilled octopus and pork chop mains were tremendous. I'd put this up there with some of the best meals I've enjoyed in Locanda Locatelli in London and visits to Sicily, Naples and Rome. Other diners... More

food was just OK, service was rushed, food was overpriced . not sure how Lupa got good reviews, I didn't just fall off a turnip truck and would not recommend it to anyone, and wouldn't go back.

Came here for dinner with friends and had a table outside on an amazing evening in NYC. The food was good, but not as spectacular as I had expected. We had the red snapper and spaghetti carbonara. Of course, this place is pretty pricey.

Lupa has become one of our lunch staples every time we come come to NYC, which is several times a year. This is another restaurant that I could right volumes about but I am opting to summarize, based on a multitude of visits here. What you can always count on... 1. A warm ambience 2. Rock and/or Reggae music and... More

We made reservations at Lupa due to the fact that it was near the Blue Man Group and that it was run by Mario Batali. The food, service, and atmosphere was all very, very good. The server helped us translate the menu and even had the kitchen make something simple for our 10 year old. Previous diners had said to... More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal Saturday night for my girlfriends birthday. We each had a plate of pasta, spaghetti pomodoro and orecchiette with oxtail ragu and the food was superb. Pasta cooked al dente infused with the sauces they were finished in. For dessert, we enjoyed the orange and fennel panna cotta and two glasses of Prosecco. Everything was great at... More

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.
