Feel like a local New Yorker

My husband and I used to live in New York and were here for annual New York fix. Dining at Lupa really makes us feel at home. We started with an amazing cocktail combining bourbon, citrus and cucumber. It was very refreshing. The escarole salad and 18 month prosciutto sliced on the berkel (makes... read more

New York restaurant titans Mario Batali and Joseph Bastianich have created a casual, fun and exquisite spot for those who like their Italian Roman style. A varied wine list--prices range from reasonable to towering--a casual atmosphere, and fantastic pastas, meat and fish make for a memorable. The place is noisy, crowded and full of good cheer.

Service is warm and funny. Terrific food and wine. We started with salumi, toast spreads, and moved onto pasta and fish (selecting the specials of the evening). Desserts were very good; specifically the spicy fruit and mazcapone.

delicious late night dining. Looking for a gourmet meal but every place is closed? Lupa stays open late. Italian to the bone. Great specials. Squid ink pasta was devine.

Started with Spinach & Warm Pancetta Salad (great) and Prosciutto (great if you’ve never had, fine if you have). Continued with Bavette Cacio e Pepe (Fantastic), Ricotta Gnocchi with Sausage & Fennel (good gnocchi, just OK overall) and Bucatini All'Amatriciana (really good). Finished with Saltimbocca (fantastic) and Market Fish (bass) with Pea & Cipollini (really good). The wine list is,... More

We had a mid-week lunch with friends, who, like us, were in New York from France. Our friends are frequent visitors to both NYC and Lupa and love both. We could see why. We started with a selection of cold meats which included some delicious tongue. My pasta and red snapper were cooked perfectly. The service was efficient and warm.... More

This restaurant has some of the best Italian fare you might come across. The service, presentation, variety, creativity and multitude of flavors put this place at a very high level. I was referred to the restaurant by Chef Tim Love. He was right. It was amazing. If you have to wait... it is worth it.

We have eaten in several of Batali's restaurants and Lupa lived up to our expectations. We had booked a reservation for 7:00pm and although we arrived early, the staff were accomodating and welcoming seating us at a nice table for two along the wall in the middle of the restaurant. Lupa serves one of the best G&T's in a city... More

Had the carbonara pasta, so far best I've ever had in the US/Canada - Italy takes the #1. Also went back for the Branzino whole fish when we went back a second time on our recent NY trip. Mario Batali restaurant are among my favs.

this is the third, and likely the last time, i will go to this restaurant. we were squished in the back even though we had a reservation, the table next to us was so close that i got the nudge every time the waiter needed to serve them. our waiter was ok, but he asked a fellow waiter how much...

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.
