We had reservations for another day, but were in the area on an early Saturday afternoon and decided to go in at the last minute half expecting them to be completely booked. But no, they led us to a nice table and we were welcomed like family. Not only was service impeccable, but food was delicious as well.

Small restaurant so you will need reservations. No real dress code at lunch. We had a great time. The short rib ragu was the big favorite. We had the tuna appetizer and a few others which were all really good, the pastas were fantastic. Our mains were not as impressive but they were ok. I would say order pasta and... More

We were looking forward to this Battali/Bastianich restaurant but it was disappointing. Both my son and my pasta were not even al dente - they were crunchy. The wait staff were great but the food was not.

This less discussed Batali spot has been my fave for years. Has been a while since my return, but they did not disappoint. We went with several apps and shared pastas. The Crispy Blue Point Oysters w/ Black Walnuts and Lardo were other worldly and the Pork Belly Tortelloni was something special. Pair the meal with a Sicilian red from... More

My daughter picked this restaurant, and I must say what a fabulous choice. The server was very attentive, the atmosphere was calming. The food, oh the food, was absolutely delicious. We had insalata di Bacala, head on gulf shrimp with salsa verde and heirloom tomatoes bruschetta with parmiggiano. Absolutely delicious. Awesome way to end our little girls night out. It... More

The Lupa has become a hit and miss with us and most recently a miss. The food was not great -- the pasta was cold when it arrived. WTH? The salad should have been served with pignolias but all pignolias were now subbed with walnuts. The dressings were not adjusted for this flavor dis-enhancement. Rock music in a classic Italian...

Great meal, with fabulous scotta ditta. Small place just north of Houston, very loud, so hard to converse with your dining partner(s).

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.
