Excellent Italian Food with Great Wine

Lupa is one of my favorite of Mario Battali's restaurants. There are lots of creative dishes, including excellent pasta. As with Otto, another Battali restaurant, the antipasti are particularly excellent, especially the vegetable dishes. I'm a big fan of Amari (bitter Italian herbal liqueurs), and... read more

Went there for 3 hours waiting for a reservation we had at another restaurant, so we had a couple bottles of wine and some Hors d"oeuvres which were Delicious and every order from the tables near us that were being delivered almost made us cancel our other reservations to eat there, but we didn't, but promised to return another night....

We visited New York for a weekend trip, and wanted to try Mario Batali's pasta. We made a reservation for 9pm or so, but got hungry earlier. We were able to sit at the community table pretty quickly despite how crowded the place was and our early arrival. We split the pasta tasting menu, which was amazing. Note: there are... More

Italian restaurant with emphasis on Roman specialities such as artichokes, excellent pastas. Front room with bar can be noisy. Go to back room if you want less noise. Mario battali

I try places during NY restaurant week(s) regularly.... And occasionally a place deserves a great review. Lupa is one of those places. The place : adorable. The staff: friendly and attentive. The food: delish! Restaurant Week brought me in. Everything else will bring me back!

Not a bastianich fan by any means, but the food was great! Incredibly good chicken, great octopus, and perfect pasta. Definitely a place worth going. Great but expensive selection of wines too. I'll come back very often.

Went here as the third wheel for dinner with a couple. I had the Pollo alla Diavola, crisp chicken skin with a nice spice, recommend that for spicy chicken lovers. Warm Spinach salad was great, all and all a great time and highly recommend.

We went to Lupa for lunch during NY Restaurant Week, which meant a $25 fixed price menu. Each of us ordered different things, and everything was delicious! A ricotta sformato came with a tangy sauce and barely cooked tiny beet slices. A chicken diavola was a chicken leg cooked like duck confit lain on top of a bed of barley... More

My husband and I were excited to go back to Lupa. I made 9:15pm reservations since nothing else was available earlier; we were seated just a little after. Our waitress was nice but can tell she wasn't happy when we were still deciding what we wanted to order for appetizers. After a table of 6 came to join she tended... 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.
