As good as we remembered

We ate here 10 years ago on our first trip to New York. It was outstanding but we've never been back. Until now! Lunch was fantastic. Great pasta, wonderful wine (thanks very much for the recommendations, Christine!) and dessert to die for (the Lupa tartufo). Plus stellar service. Will definitely... read more

There were four of us waiting to go to Terra blues around the corner and we were looking a bite to eat, what a great find in Lupa. The service was excellent choice of meal wide ranging and wines easy to pay for. One of the nicest pasta dishes I have eaten outside of Italy itself, beautiful home made breads... More

My husband has been wanting to take me here forever and we finally had the opportunity to go Friday night. The waiter was friendly and very helpful answering questions about how much and what to order. He recommended an excellent wine as well! I ordered the butternut squash with pommengrante and Shisho. It was a great combination...delicious and refreshing! The... More

Perfect in all aspects- atmosphere, masterfully prepared food without pretense, best ingredients, home made charcuterie. Tartuffo - made in many places, rarely they get it right, but they did here.

Had dinner last week. The salads, Octopus were very good. The best dish was the Saltimboca (highly recommend). The tartufo for desert was a nice way to wrap up the evening. Acoustics were not great, which makes it a better choice with friends than a business dinner.

We had the roman tasting menu. It consisted of a salad, 2 pasta dishes, braised ox tail, a cheese course, and desert. One of the pasta dishes in a creamy sauce with shallots and bacon blew my mind. The other pasta dish was just ok. I make a better ox tail myself. Service and wine were excellent. The company was... More

Every time we go to NYC we go to LUPA... this time it surpassed itself. The food was stunning ... embarrassingly so nice we ordered exactly the same on the 2nd visit. Great wine list. Delicious beetroot and pistachio salad.... mmmmm. Always busy so make sure you book.

We have eaten at Lupa several times. The space is crammed, but the food has always off set the space. We've had poor snobby service for the last time and will not go back and no longer recommend to our friends. There is no such thing as taking your time and enjoying your meal either as you must place your... 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.
