Such a nice and cozy spot! The staff is so friendly and welcoming, we all felt really comfortable there. The food was superb and cooked perfectly. I had the lamb chops which were so juicy and tasty! My friend had the seafood spaghetti which was also delicious and had such a unique sauce in it. We also tried the carrot soup which wa surprisingly really nice and creamy and very good. Everything was amazing! Would recommend!

The best classic Italian food in the city. Not touristy. Real local charm aboumds. The pasta are fresh, hand made, and perfectly cooked. The sauces are rich and complex. The service is as good as the food. This place is always in my top 5 favorite restaurants. If Michelin is listening, they deserve a star.

Outstanding neighborhood Italian restaurant. Excellent taste, service and ambiance. Never a bad meal. Pasta is first rate. Nightly specials. Very user friendly. Compared with all SF restaurants including the three star group I would place Lupa Trattoria in the top 5%.

Good food and warm, if slightly loud, ambiance.

Friend got too stoned, greened out and passed out on the bench outside. Bench was comfortable 5/5, would recommend to pass out on.

Good neighborhood feel/small intimate space. Food was well prepared and tasty. It’s on the pricey side but what isn’t these days in SF? Big drawback was our waiter with a rather dour attitude - it kind of took the shine off an otherwise pleasant dining experience.

Super rude manager with an attitude I've never experienced before in a restaurant. Even with a reservation, they let you wait for at least 30min to get a table since they overbook!

The food was really good! Even the Cesar salad flavor was good! I got the duck breast that ‘‘twas cooked to order. My date got then fish. Generous portion and not dry. We shared the bucatini which I loved! Moore’s cooked to perfection. Dessert was a nice ending to a really enjoyable meal!

Food was just so so. I think mostly of the opinions saying how extraordinary is the pasta, are exaggerating. We order pasta and our opinion is not too good. Making pasta with Prego and parmesan cheese in home it will leave you more satisfied.

I can't go back to Lupa's enough. The food is great, and the wait staff is fantastic! The staff is polite, accommodating and attentive to your every need. They make their own bread, and it is delicious! My guest raved about the Papadelle pasta with Italian sausage. The Alaskan halibut was done perfect for me. It is definitely 5 star quality in every way!

We had a very nice meal at Lupa. We recently returned from two weeks in Italy, so we have some idea what real Italian food is supposed to taste like, and Lupa fit the bill. Only complaint is the tables are jammed very close together and the noise level was pretty high, but the food and service were both top-notch.

Nice neighborhood restaurant serving Roman food. Cozy spot ideal for catching up with friends, as it is easy to have a conversation there without the loud background noise too common at many SF restaurants. Good wine list. Would go back.
