Description: As Matt's first Italian concept, Lupo di Mare offers a fresh perspective on Italian cuisine incorporating local produce and freshly-caught seafood into creative Mediterranean dishes. From tastes like hand-pulled mozzarella and braised pork bolognese, to char-grilled octopus and sea bass with butternut squash risotto, our menu diverges from typical Italian fare while capturing traditional flavors. Vintage European films unfold on-screen in our comfortably intimate dining room, clad in simplistic, Italian-inspired decor. An unassuming staff will guide you through our comprehensive wine collection and unique cocktail list to ensure an exceptional experience. Located in elegant Hotel Rehoboth in downtown Rehoboth Beach, Lupo di Mare is just steps from boutique shopping and minutes from the boardwalk. Stop in and see why the locals rave about Lupo di Mare.

“Wonderful Wine Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Congratulations to Lupo di Mare for a super wine dinner on January 22, 2013. The wines, available in the USA only at Lupo di Mare, were perfectly paired with a bountiful feast. And, the food was excellent, especially the lamb. World Class! BRAVO.

“Best Italian in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I’ve eaten at Lupo di Mare four or five times over the past few years. I think it’s the best Italian restaurant in Rehoboth. The food is always excellent and the service is great. And, even though they always seem busy in season, they always seem to work us in quickly and never rush your meal.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

I've visited this restaurant multiple times 2 years in a row when staying at the Hotel Rehoboth. This is a great Italian restaurant with an extensive menu and the food has always exceeded expectations. Service is great, though our hostess was a little off the last two times we visited earlier in December. I highly recommend it. They do not accept reservations but the wait has always been reasonable.

“Not your Mom and Pop, red-sauce Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is a restaurant we wish we had tried sooner. The ambience is simple and surprisingly elegant but is still comfortable for the beach set. Their service is good and unexpectedly proper in a way would be fitting to a favored, city restaurant. What makes this such a good eatery is the menu. Their menu includes choices similar to those we've seen in italy along the coast, but more of them. Very well executed and interesting dishes made with fresh, local ingredients. This is a great place to go for a special evening, or that night you want to dress up just a little instead of chowing down in a shorts and flip flops.

“Pefect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Rehoboth upstairs - which we loved - and let me just say this is the perfect restaurant to compliment it. We actually dined here for our son's 3rd bday and he loved it too. No Chuck E Cheese's for him! Every bread, pasta, sauce, fish and cheese we tried was amazing. They do it right!
