We loved his place! My partner and I always like trying new restaurants and finding gems in the city. This is definitely one of those gems. It’s a cozy, adorable restaurant that’s perfect for any occasion. We were on a date but we’d love to bring our parents here for a family dinner. The food was delicious and the service was really great too. It’s a bit pricey but definitely worth the splurge!

This may be one of my favorite restaurants ever. The location is fantastic in Yaletown, in a quaint little old home on Hamilton street. The service was top notch and the food was unbelievable. You can not have a bad meal here. The flavor and attention to detail was impeccable. I would highly recommend making a reservation, ordering a bottle of wine and enjoy every bite.

we visit this lovely place once a year when we come to vancouver from seattle and every time is delightful. the food and service are both outstanding and we love the coziness of the space. we usually get to sit in the front window to enjoy our delicious meal that never disappoints. the menu staples as well as the seasonal specials have been wonderful! (the tagliarini and mushrooms with the nebbiolo are a must have)
thank you for an incredibly pleasant dining experience!

Our experience at Lupo was fantastic. Celebrated my wife's birthday at Lupo and it did not disappoint at all. The food was very tasty and delicious. There were several items on the menu that were available for vegetarians. The service was top notch. Will definitely be back to enjoy another great meal at Lupo.

Food quality was excellent. During our dinner the ambient noise level within this historic building was much too high. We had difficulty hearing each other even though we had a table for two at the upstairs window. Because of the high ambient sound, I would not recommend LUPO Restaurant for an anniversary or a date. Some waiters seemed rushed and pressured and reluctant to talk to their guests. Our main waitress/server was pleasant. In some ways I think LUPO is an expensive dining factory, however it does deliver excellent food flavours. I hesitate to recommend LUPO to a friend unless it were for a one time only experience of authentic Italian dishes.

Excellent meal with great service. The specials were fantastic, truffles pasta with an amazing veal chop (two separate dishes).
Mike was our server and he was great - not hovering but looking after all our needs.
Only drawback was a big party seated behind us and cackling incessantly - not the fault of the restaurant.
Will not hesitate to return the next time we’re in Vancouver.

We try to get to Lupo every time we go to Vancouver - haven’t been disappointed yet
Great Italian Restaurant
Very good wine list
We started with the Veal carpaccio for the second we shared the truffle fettuccine and had the elk for the main. Everything was perfect The waitress was very helpful and informative we had a great evening
I would recommend Lupo to everyone- especially if you enjoy Italian food

Went to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday before going to an event nearby. The waitress nicely asked us if we had anything after dinner and kept us on time for the event! She was also kind and the service was quick. The food was great and the portions were good too. Left the place happy and satisfied. Thank you!

Food was advertised as Italian, but serving style was more French. Portions were small and overpriced, but presentation was nice and flavour was good. Expect to spend around $200 a person if you want to have a full dinner. We had 4 courses and both left hungry - had to go for a McDonald's run after dinner.

The food at Lupo is quite tasty but not the best. The rabbit for my tagliatelle was overcooked and somewhat dry. The ambiance of Lupo has always been constrained by its architecture and that hasn't changed.
