Excellent service by Moe.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerOur dinner at Lupo was excellent. Lived up to expectations. Really nice sitting at a table in the front at the window.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMtoo busy?the three of us were sharing appertizers (we had 6) and we asked the server to distribute the pasta for us. He kept saying 'I'll be right back", 'Give me a minute' and we ending up splitting the pasta ourselves.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMstill our favouriteLupo has been our favourite restaurant for many years, but the dinner we had tonight may have been the best ever. The specials that were offered tonight were fantastic: burrata, vitello tonnato, taglierini with dungenous crab leg meat, and almond tart with strawberries and sabayon. I hope Lupo puts these on their regular menu so we can have them again.
As always, the staff at Lupo were top rate. They are naturally friendly, enthusiastic about the food, and prompt, but never rushed.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten, dairy and soy allergiesIf you are in Vancouver and you are worried about your allergies being taken care of..Lupo is your spot. My husband is Italian and loves good food ..he's especially picky about Italian since he thinks his Mom (and I) are the best cooks. He loved his dishes and I was delighted with mine. I loved our waiter, Chris. He was pleasant and truley took the time to concern himself with my allergies. We had a slight snafu but, he was kind and caring about that as well. I would highly recommend it..6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Find!My husband and I were visiting for a weekend, looking for a good meal with good wine and a non-touristy location. Lupo was all that and more!
- Ambiance: Absolutely adorable -- set in an old home, very cozy with impressive lighting and artwork.
- Food: Exquisite. We had the lobster bisque (soooo rich and delicious!), a burrata appetizer, the short ribs ravioli special, the risotto nero, and a refreshing strawberry dessert.
- Wine: An impressive selection and knowledge of each option.
- Service: Outstanding -- we were greeted and seated by a lovely young man (I assumed he was the owner), who helped us with our wine and checked in throughout the meal. Our waiter was delightful and knowledgeable, too.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMwe were celebrating a birthday,we were celebrating a birthday, not a moment was out of place, service of the very highest order, food impeccable in its precision and imagination, an atmosphere of warm and radiant conviviality, it doesn't get much better, run, don't walk to Lupo6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGet a pasta dish.

The first great experience, being greeted by our waiter Moe with a complimentary sparkling wine to kick off our anniversary celebration. Moe is an exceptional server and went above and beyond our expectations. Every plate was rich in flavor and textures that made us crave for more. The attention to detail in the presentation of our meals was a work of art. Our compliments to the chef for the care and attention he takes to each of these dishes. The final highlight of the night was the complimentary ice wine to complete out night. Lupo is the ultimate food experience. Made our anniversary celebration an experience we won't forget.
