A word from Lupa Trattoria
Situated in the congenial San Francisco neighborhood of Noe Valley, Lupa is a classic Italian trattoria with comfortable neighborhood charm, affordable prices, and destination-caliber cuisine. Using the best available local ingredients, Chef Stefano Coppola creates a seasonal menu featuring classic dishes from his home in Rome.

The menu is based on the Italian tradition of preparing food - combining simplicity with the best ingredients of the season, including quality olive oil, locally grown local vegetables and fruits, and seasonal specials of seafood, poultry, meat and game. Our bread and pastas - gnocchi, tagliatelli, parpardelle, linguini, tortelloni, and ravioli are homemade on premise.

In addition to the regular menu, our specials menu features different soups, antipasti, pastas, and main courses.

Beyond a passion for authentic Roman cuisine, our friendly Italian staff work from their hearts to make your visit comfortable and enjoyable.

  • "The place is cute and in a nice Noe Valley location. The food was good, but not great. I will not actively avoid this restaurant in the future, but I'm likely not going to return in the near future. The service was really great. Attentive and really nice."

  • "This was our second visit to Lupa and both visits were exquisite. Truly authentic Roman cuisine, at the very peak of quality and preparation. The wine list could use an update, but that did not get in the way of our magnificent two evenings. The waitstaff were attentive and lovely."

  • "I have been going to Lupa for a little over 2 years. I discovered this Gem when I was working in Noe Valley. I love all of their fish entrees. The salmon is to die for and recently I had the halibut, which was equally good. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the ambiance is nice yet laid back. I love this place! I just wish it were closer to my house."

  • "My family has been going to Lupa for years, and it's consistently great. It's a terrific little neighborhood spot with delicious food, great service, and a nice ambience. They don't try too hard to be trendy and they don't need to - they just deliver excellent quality each and every time. The lasagna is ridiculously good (traditional red meat sauce, not bechamel based). Go expecting a sweet neighborhood vibe and a cozy atmosphere. You won't be disappointed."

  • "I've walked by this place many times, but somehow the name just did not call out to me. Finally, did have dinner here & was so pleasantly surprised. Wonderful atmosphere, nice lighting, not too loud, great lasagna. Can't wait to go back and try other items..."
    Dined on 11/18/2013
  • "They lost me at the lasagna. I'm Italian. Everything was wonderful up to that point. Flavorful and complex. But the lasagna was something I'd expect in a cafeteria. Maybe it was just a bad night for it, but if not for that it would have been 5 stars across the board."

  • "I get to SF a half dozen times a year, and always eat here when I go. We were a party of 5; each of us had a different appetizer and a different entrée--all were wonderful. There is a very good Italian wine list with very reasonable prices. It is a neighborhood Italian restaurant, so you don't go for ambience. You go for good food, good service, and a good time out--it always delivers all three."

  • "I love going to Lupa! They are always so consistent in serving delicious meals time and time again. I love the duck and the raviolis are to die for. We will be back again!"

  • "When booking with this restaurant, do not let them seat you at one of thre three tables on the lower level. Service to those tables is awful."

  • "This place never disappoints. The food and service are always great, and the owner always stops by to make sure everything is perfect. We always try to fit in a meal when we are in the area."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Great ambiance and had a blast BUT service was just bleh, not rude or anything but considering it was a special occassion, the service was definitely NOT warm or inviting. Our waiter was "robotic'. Havind said that, the food was great and it had a cozy vibe. I would be willing to give it another shot. I had also requested a corner table and granted the manager was kind enough to give us a table in the middle so we wouldn't wait an extra few minutes, I would have much rather have had the corner table."
