i have enjoyed this special pasta dish from newyork to Rome....and no-one does it as well as Lupa.. this congenial restaurant is difficult to get in....but they have lots of tables for 'walk-ins'. we ofter sit at the bar and eat there. the staff is super friendly and there is a little outdoor dining area in summer.

Went back to Lupa for a nice evening dinner. Was considering tasting menu but decided ala carte. I had striped bass and partner had pasta. The pasta was magnificent but the fish was good but not spectacular. I would go back just for the spinach salad and tartufo. And next time I will stick to pasta.

The long list of pastas available at lunch and dinner are different than any you've had at a non-Batali restaurant. Pasta with short ribs was outstanding--as was the bacala salad appetizer (I've been searching for that classic for years in New York restaurants). Also a great value is the daily special (I had the oxtail stew--also not something you see... More

Server was nice. Sommelier was helpful and accommodating. Food was less than great. In fact, my skate was awful. Overall? Over-hyped. I cannot recommend.

This would have gotten 5 stars but the hostess messed up several reservations and we were left waiting for 20 minutes. It can be a bit loud, but it's worth braving. The wine list is excellent and the food is terrific. Staff is very friendly. I had the casarecce with short rib ragu and my husband had the lamb mezzaluna.... More

The food was lovely. I went for a simple pomodoro pasta and a pollo alla diavola. The girl got 2 pasta dishes: cacio e pepe and short rib ragu. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Hence the 5*. The only thing we were disappointed with was the 30 minute wait even though we had a reservation. This seemed to... More

I've never been here before but I must say Lupa lived up to my expectations! Though busy and crowded, the service was excellent and the food was delicious! The wine list is quite extensive and our meal was accompanied by a delicious Nebiolo.

We were wandering around Soho and had made reservations for Lupa for lunch. This restaurant is cosy, which is another word for small and the tables are quite close together. We are a couple and were unfortunately placed in a high traffic area with waiters constantly walking by. We asked to be moved and could not be accommodated. Service was... More

Enjoyed a late meal on a Tuesday last month. As on a previous visit, it's a busy restaurant with great food! Everything from Primi to Dolce was wonderful. I can't wait until I'm in NYC again so I can eat here again.

A fantastic restaurant with great food, I very much enjoyed the escarole salad, prosciutto, Bavette cacio e Pepe pasta, and an amazing olive oil cake with peaches and sesame gelato (must have!). My only complaint is getting reservations at a reasonable time, but then again the restaurant is that popular!

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.
