“Valentine's Day 2010 - Dave & Bev Hague from Sheffield”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2010

We went to this restaurant on Valentine's Day. We were a bit unsure what to expect after reading some of the other reviews. But i am pleased to say that the service, quality of food and atmosphere were excellent. There wasn't one thing we could complain about and would recommend this place to everyone. We will definitely return and next time take the kids as it is very much a family or couples restaurant.

“dissapointing 70 mile trip for a ruined wedding anniversery”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2009

We have been going to Il Lupo for years at lunchtime, always a perfect meal, last night i took my wife for our 27th wedding aniversery a70 mile round trip we waited 40 mins till we ordered our meal, for the main meal we both ordered steak rossini cooked medium the meals arrived so rare that when we cut into them our plates were swimming with blood my wife couldn't eat it, but i did order it medium really it was just seared, the waiter took my wifes meal away to cook it properly 20 mins later it came back i had by then finished my meal then they tried to charge us the full price for ruining our night, i refused to pay, the manager dissapeared , the waiter knocked £5 off the bill which i found insulting as each steak rossini was £20, i told him we would not be going again he just shrugged his shoulders so never again

“Great food, shame about the service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2008

I've been to Il Lupo many times over the last few years. Their pasta dishes and spaghetti bolognese are the best I've tasted (and I've been to Italy), and their meat dishes are cooked perfectly with a range of tasty sauces and served with the most delicious choice of vegetables. And I can't go to Il Lupo and not have their homemade tiramissu - it's delicious.

Situated in the lovely countryside town of Baslow, it's worth the drive to eat Italian food as good as this, providing they feel like having customers! On one of our last visits there, we happened to be the last couple in the restaurant at 10pm, on what was probably not a very busy night. Instead of valuing their remaining customers, our desserts were brought to the table before we had even finished the main course and they started to switch the lights out before it was even 10.30, resulting in us rushing our food and made to feel most unlwelcome.

How not to treat your customers.

So while I'm regularly tempted to return there to enjoy their food, that last experience has been somewhat offputting. The food may be fantastic and the surroundings cosy, but their customer service does leave a lot to be desired.
