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!

What a hip and happening place downtown. Service was exceptional as was the food. We started with their special pasta with a duck ragu followed by lamb chops with Brussels sprouts - fabulous. It was packed on a Tuesday night. Wine menu had a good selection... great night.

The food here is always good. You will get better service when the restaurant is not busy. On one busy night that we visited, the busboys were extra efficient in clearing our plates The waiter forgot that we still had wine in the bottle that was sitting on ice by the bar while our wine glasses were all empty.

Not my favorite Batali restaurant but it is good for lunch while visiting Soho. They have a good fix price menu for lunch. So if you are in a mood for a Italian then you should go.

Delicious al dente pasta. Had the pasta with the duck ragu. Wonderful. The thinly sliced prosciutto is not to miss. Great location in Soho. Casual, funky, crowded, energetic setting. Fits right in with the Soho vibe. Great service.

This is a cozy restaurant with a great vibe. We tried pasta tasting menu with wine pairing and it was amazing. It's a lot of food but so worth it.

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.
