We've been to New York three times and eaten at Lupa twice. It's a great Italian although quite 'cosy' but then that's New York! Top tip - ask for a table at the back. The service was great and the food really good too. I would definitely recommend it if you're looking to taste traditional Roman food where the menu... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years and I rate it highly. The food is classic, fresh, creative and absolutely delicious. On my most recent visit I had a simple pasta that was cooked and flavored perfectly and the side vegetables and salads were perfect. The one and only draw back on my last visit was that our... More

Had a great dinner there on a Saturday night, chef's Roman tasting menu with wine pairing. Truly awesome, felt like I was back in Rome! Wines were excellent. Had very good Oso bucco, pasta carbonara. Will return.

I have to start off saying that my expectations weren't great because I was expecting this place to be popular based on the owner's name. I wasn't convinced there was a great need for quality because of that reason alone. Both of us ended up being impressed from beginning to end. The atmosphere was very pleasant, attractive, and inviting. Seating... More

This felt like a find. Away from the glitzy, pricey steakbars this little backstreet Italian, with it's red brick inner walls and cosy candlelighting, was all it had been recommended to be. Saying this LUPA is clearly well known and well liked. We tried to book a table over New Year's time and the best we could manage was 9pm.... More

Our NYC family heard about this place, all good. We were very impressed with the service and the food. Seafood taco appetizer was wonderful. could have made them dinner. The chef's special was my favorite. They certainly know how to cook seafood. Nice for a special dinner since it is a little costly.

Went there because of the hype and Batali name... Convenient location if you are in Soho and nice cozy ambiance. Food was ok not great. My mixed salad was drenched in lemon and salt.... My main course, pasta with mussels and jalapeños was full of butter and had a weird lemon flavor... My date's spinach salad with pancetta was ok...... More

It's always great to stumble, unplanned on a great lunch spot - especially on a first freezing day in NYC. Lupa ticked all the boxes for a winter warming, classic neighbourhood modern Italian. We ate a good beet salad, a reasonable prawn and pepper salad, but it was the pastas that won the day. A fully flavour loaded and perfectly... More

I had the popes hat pasta with sage butter. Beet salad with shrimp was a bit ordinary Bloke had pasta with spicy tomato and bacon - he loved it Little tiny carafes of wine served here called carafinas Service was perfect. Understated charm and natural ease. A bit surprising was the down to earth family vibe in the joint.

Always wanted to try a batali place. Went pretty early- 5 on a Monday. The place is intimate- small but cute. Friendly staff and yummy food. Got the chicken and garlic pasta- yummy. The Romano salad is great with a light citrus dressing. Nice place to get a bite to eat
