Description: Lupo Italian Kitchen on Rehoboth Avenue is where you can find fresh takes on Italian cuisine intermingled amongst coastal and regional offerings. Our produce is sourced locally and is mostly hand selected from the farms and markets dotted throughout the southern part of the state. Our menu consists of flavorful tasting items that welcome guests to try numerous exciting and exotic flavor combinations. Our fresh, line caught seafood is at the core of our companies philosophy and sits in abundance on our menu. Hand selected and crafted meat options resemble simple and delicious rustic fare. All of our delectable desserts are made in house with great care and attention. Our quaint sit down corner bar is similar in practice as we create tasty seasonal concoctions daily with every new batch of fruits and herbs that come in. A fully stocked wine shelf holds unique and acclaimed wine selections that eagerly await pairings.

“Best Italian in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

I’ve eaten at Lupo di Mare four or five times over the past few years. I think it’s the best Italian restaurant in Rehoboth. The food is always excellent and the service is great. And, even though they always seem busy in season, they always seem to work us in quickly and never rush your meal.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

I've visited this restaurant multiple times 2 years in a row when staying at the Hotel Rehoboth. This is a great Italian restaurant with an extensive menu and the food has always exceeded expectations. Service is great, though our hostess was a little off the last two times we visited earlier in December. I highly recommend it. They do not accept reservations but the wait has always been reasonable.

“Not your Mom and Pop, red-sauce Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

This is a restaurant we wish we had tried sooner. The ambience is simple and surprisingly elegant but is still comfortable for the beach set. Their service is good and unexpectedly proper in a way would be fitting to a favored, city restaurant. What makes this such a good eatery is the menu. Their menu includes choices similar to those we've seen in italy along the coast, but more of them. Very well executed and interesting dishes made with fresh, local ingredients. This is a great place to go for a special evening, or that night you want to dress up just a little instead of chowing down in a shorts and flip flops.

“Pefect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Rehoboth upstairs - which we loved - and let me just say this is the perfect restaurant to compliment it. We actually dined here for our son's 3rd bday and he loved it too. No Chuck E Cheese's for him! Every bread, pasta, sauce, fish and cheese we tried was amazing. They do it right!

“Favorite Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

The best Italian restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. Me and friends go at least twice a month. they take no reservations but we always get seated quickly. The sea bass and the steak is a consistent knock out.
