“Traditional Italian, as it should be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Fantastic food, traditional Italian the way it should be! The wine is lovely in the caraf's & the pizza is to die for. They are simple with fewer toppings & just PERFECT!

“Best pizza in Wollongong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

My husband and I are regulars at Lupa, and come here in preference to any other Italian restaurant in the Gong. Authentic thin-based pizza, with good quality toppings - not your standard take-away cheese-fest. Great salads with very, very fresh ingredients. BYO allowed. Unfortunately, the restaurant is extremely loud, to the point that we will often try to come in later, once the inevitable crowd of people start to leave. On the other hand, the place is always full, cheerful and efficient. Highly recommended, despite the noise.

“great pizzas, noisy restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The food here is amazing! unfortunately the service and atmosphere let the restaurant down the music plays too loudly sometimes or because the restaurant is cramped you cant hear the other people on your table. the service is decent but dont expect to be able to make bookings / order takeaway they rarely answer the phone. they wont accept bookings either unless you do a set menu. its licensed and serves decent wine in 1/4,1/2 and 1 litre carafs for a very good price. i recommend for pizzas the regina, the vegtarian, the diavola, the 4 stagiona and to finish the nutella calzone. you will not be dissapointed!!!!

“Traditional Italian Pizza at its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Ate here twice this week and a number of times in recent months.
Luca and the team have a simple formula.
Great fresh ingredients prepared and cooked to perfection.
We specially like fennel and radiccio salad, chorizio and mushroom starter, and all the pizza's are superb. Service is good and Luca and staff know how to look after you.
We love the food here.
Leanne and Paul.
