We called on a Saturday and were told no reservations were available but they could seat us if we were willing to wait at the bar. When we arrived the wait was 45 minutes for a table or 10 minutes if we were willing to sit at the bar which we did. Beer and wine choices were very limited (no... More

Had a three-course weekday lunch with a friend. The famed cacio e pepe was great, if not a little bit too peppery for my taste. Tartufo was very filling. We had a reservation and table was ready when we got there. A super nice hostess stored my big shopping bags during my meal. Excellent food for the price and lovely... More

On a recommendation of a friend we gave this place a try. It was wonderful! Cute atmosphere. Would make a great date night place. Food was superb. The focaccia bread was good, and they kept it refilled. Husband had rabbit and I had pasta with ragu sauce. I would recommend

Lupa continually impresses. I have now been over ten times and its one of my NYC favorites. With a great wine list and excellent menu along with a cozy atmosphere you can't go wrong. From the fresh sliced meats as a starter to the tasty pastas and main courses, I have never had a bad meal. Some of my favorites... More

We make a point of eating at Lupa every time we are in New York. The menu is very focused on Roman cuisine, in particular. All of the wines are Italian. Every dish I've ever had there has been well seasoned and extremely flavorful. Nothing is bland. The menu has a lot of variety, from interesting salads and vegetable side... More

This is a great find. For such a high profile restaurant it's really a whole in the wall restaurant. Very small, very well run, wonderful food. The waiters and bar tenders are all great. They serve a generous glass of wine with a great wine list, and serve up a amazing pasta. I've walked by this restaurant several times and... More

This cute little restaurant between Bleecker and Houston just blocks from Washington Square Park shows off the Mario Batali Italian flavors very well. The escarole salad lacked the bite I prefer in escarole but otherwise it was delicious and plenty for two of us to share. The bucatini alla amatriciana had plenty of the pig jowl guanciale and just the... More

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

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.
