Food was excellent. Authentic Italian cuisine. Perfect wine pairing. They were also very attentive and careful about food allergies and intolerance. However they were pushy and were trying to get us out of the restaurant as fast as possible. Which is something I hate. It was also crowded and loud. I would go back for the food, it was amazing...

Quite simply, in NYC, we largely only do Italian food. So, Lupa as next on our list not because of its celebrity ownership but because we'd heard some good buzz. We started with some reasonably (for NYC) priced prosecco and the affetatti piccolo which was a wonderful starter of meats/cheese prepared right behind us in the little kitchen like area... More

Another Batali/Bastianich restaurant. Food was good but I wasn't wowed. It seemed like a safe menu and what I mean by that is, there was nothing crazy on the menu. Seemed to cater to a crowd of older folk who didn't really go outside the box. Space is tight so you can hear your neighboring diners conversations. I didn't feel... More

An anticipated second time at Lupa. Never again. Nice server, excellent wine recommendation, grade D food. The cook dumped the salt shaker in the carchofi appetizer and the pepper in the pasta pomodoro. The server was very gracious and brought another pasta, which was ok. The Carmel gelato had no taste. One bad meal is all it takes to go... More

We thought we were going to a different restaurant and then they had enough seats at the bar to fit us in. Delicious surprise. We started with the fried artichoke appetizers -- only get them if you LOVE homemade potato chips or you won't like it. I had the gnocchi-- wo the sausage. It was amazing! Perfect texture and flavoring.... More

This was my second visit to Lupa since May. The four of us were seated in the front of the restaurant this time which lacks the cosiness of the back room. The whole atmosphere in the front is frenetic. Started with marinated olives, spinach & warm pancetta salad, insalata di baccala (salted cod) and marinated sardines. All very good. As... More

We happened by this busy place after a movie at just the right time to get seated. It's a treat--Roman and Tuscan favorites with an original twist, excellent wines.

The 4 of us arrived hungry and ready to eat. 3 of us were ready to commit to the Roman Pasta Tasting Menu, but alas the management kindly requested the entire table's participation for the tastings menu. So we must return with only Roman Pasta devotees. We still did great. Our daughter had a drink that was a big hit-... More

My fiancé and I ate at Lupa last weekend and were really impressed. The service was excellent and the wine was delicious. Most importantly, the food was amazing! I would have to say the BEST Italian food in the City. Much credit to the chefs. We’ll definitely be back.

It is a small and intimate place. There is always a lot of activity and diners enjoying their eating experience. The food is excellent. We eat here every time we come to New York City and have not been disappointed yet. The tortufo is the best I have had.
