Excellent!

My husband and I were here for Valentines Day at 4pm. It was nice to find a restaurant that was serving their full menu on that night. We were seated right away and yes, crowded and small tables, and your neighbors are practically sitting with you. After awhile though, you really don't notice... read more

Went for Restaurant Week lunch. The portions were skimpy, but the food was very tasty and nicely prepared. We'll try again for dinner on an ordinary week.

My party recently visited Lupa. I loved the cozy atmosphere. I had read a review that said it gets crowded and be prepared to be jostled. This was true but it didn’t bother us too much initially. Our server was terrific, friendly and professional. The Sommelier was outstanding and spent a long time with us answering whatever questions we had.... More

Mario Batali is a very interesting chef to keep an eye on him. I knew him through Eataly, but just discovered that he also has independent restaurants in Manhattan. We shared the artichokes as app, preposterous. As an entree, a spaghetti carbonara. It could be better but it wasn't crummy. The pinot noir by the glass was common, Italian. The... More

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
