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 food is delicious and authentic (GNOCCHI AL CINGHIALE, TORTELLONI ALLA CARDINALE, SALTIMBOCCA ALLA ROMANA, seafood pasta) the service is always great, and they always accommodate us whether we arrive earlier than the reservation time, or without a reservation. Great Noe Valley option for delicious Italian food in a relaxed atmosphere."

  • "This restaurant exceeded my expectations. Pastas are homemade and sauces are delicious. We had the fettucine with mushrooms and pappardelle with lamb ragu. Both were superb. Cute little neighborhood restaurant that is family-friendly. We will definitely be back. "

  • "We were the first people there and we asked for water when we sat down. We were ignored until our waiter came over and brought water and a loaf of BURNT bread with a flavorless plate of olive oil. I ordered an app of pears with mascarpone cheese wrapped in prosciutto The pears were from a can! I found dried, dead stems of parsley in the salad which was dressed in the same tasteless olive oil. My main was gnocchi with "wild boar" ragu and my husband had the special seafood pasta. The gnocchi was so heavy you could build a cabin. The ragu was salty, I could not taste wild boar. Hubby's dish was over cooked shrimp and calamari that was frozen and old. Our waiter asked how everything was and hubby told him. The waiter made a disgusted face!"

  • "We are a book club of four women who live between Stanford and Marin. So we meet in the City and this time was my pick and I picked this little neighborhood gem. It was perfect. Food was excellent but not over the top. Service was attentive. The place was packed solid for dinner but somehow the noise level was never bad. We really enjoyed our book club there. Thank you, Lupa Trattoria!"

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."

They don't try too hard to be trendy and they don't need to - they just deliver excellent quality each and every time.
