My daughter and I were looking for a good Italian food restaurant and this one was a delightful find. We sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly and attentive. He gave some excellent recommendations. The food was amazing! You will not be disappointed.

Stopped here yesterday for lunch with friends. The food & atmosphere was very nice. We each had a different entrée & shared. All three were very good. It was on a quiet street & not very big, but the service & food were good.

There isnt really much else to say about Lupa. The service and food never fail to impress even the most culinarily eloquent. From the moment we sat down we were treated like true guests and they really cared. Be sure to have a reservation, because it gets busy.

Had a truly wonderful meal with friends, however I must admit listening to hard rock during my meal was a little odd. I felt like I was in a Bikers bar. Besides the atmosphere that was different, the food was amazing. Had the spinach salad and the special pasta of the day. It was truly delicious and loved the portions,... More

A bit overrated and not all that impressive. Best dish was the gnocchi. Um, if that was the best dish this place could offer, then I would suggest others to look elsewhere. Fish was bland and tasteless and the salad was a basic salad. I have had better salads at Chop't. It's expensive for mediocre food and mediocre ser

Located almost out of sight, you will have to look for the exact adress to find it, but it worth the effort. The food is served in professinal style, the service is friendly and efficient, and the recommended wine was great - all gave us a great lunch time. May be loudy when it is full - there is not...

If you love Italian food this is the place. Attentive, patient service, and food that you wish you could have every single day. We had the Roman Pasta Tasting. It was five of the most amazing dishes I have ever eaten. The pasta was fresh and perfectly al dente and you could taste the individual seasonings in the sauces. If... More

My boyfriend googled "best carbonara" and this place came up. And it was pretty good. It is much less creamy and more peppery than some other versions of the classic dish, but just as good. The meat was crunch and flavorful. I got the ricotta gnocchi with sausage and fennel. It was very very good. The texture of the gnocchi... More

Have eaten at Lupa a couple of times before and have always been very impressed. This time, not so much. I got the Saltimbocca which I normally love. However, it was overcooked. Too many other good restaurants in NYC so probably won't go back.

We have been to a lot of good restaurants in New York but Lupa surpassed all of them. We could only get a reservation for 6:00 o'clock on a Thursday night. When we got to the restaurant, it was already busy but the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Started with the marinated olives, (average) spinach and warm pancetta salad and... More
