I've been going to Lupa for many years and each time is a special meal....their pasta is outstanding! The only problem is that it is so popular that it's always crowded, but if you get reservations, you'll love it. The carbonara is to die for and the pork shoulder ragu with rigatoni was wonderful. We started with a delicious baby... More

An absolutely great evening filled with great dining, great social vibe, superb wine list, expert staff, and most especially, great friends! The pasta entrees are the best we have ever enjoyed! They are unique and expertly prepared and presented. The wine list is special and they serve half size bottles as well as full bottles, makes for a great wine... More

Lots of Mario Batali pasta (ample portions), good daily specials, fun wine list( with a knowledgeable sommelier) and the the right size dessert portion. Spaghetti Carbonara was cooked perfectly, the pork shoulder in red sauce was fall off the bone tender .... The star of the night was the heirloom tomato bruschetta! Perfect tomatoes with capers and shaved Parmesan cheese.... More

This restaurant was my absolute fave in NYC. You will not find a celebrity restaurant (Mario Batali) with better food or atmosphere than this!! The price for a prefix menu was under $50 per person for a 5 course to die for traditional Italian menu! They had another prefix menu that was about $60 per person, but that was still... More

I used to love this restaurant back in my eating meat days. I came here today and asked for pasta with tomato sauce and got the most tasteless pasta. And thats after I already returned one with olive oil. When u come to Lupa u expect to get something special, even if its a simple dish. Wont come again...

We ate at Lupa on a Friday night and had a very solid meal. We really wanted the pasta tasting menu for two of us at our table of four but the waiter regurgitated restaurant policy that the whole table had to order the tasting menu. When we asked if we had come in as a table of two and... More

This Roman Trattoria has never failed to impress each time I've been there. The pastas are particularly impressive especially the cacio e pepe, the agnalotti and the buccatini all'Amatriciana. The cartuccio is another good choice but you really can't go wrong with anything you order. It is very hard to get in so make reservations or put your name down... More

We always make a point of going to Lupa every time that we are in NYC. The cozy atmosphere, terrific service and the fantastic food is the reason we keep coming back to this little gem. This time we had the pasta tasting menu. Each course offered something different and it allows you to try several of the pastas that... More

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.
