Staff accommodated us as we arrived early. They made us feel welcomed and relaxed. We loved the place all cozy and warm. Our food was perfect and paired with a smooth red wine. We will definitely return and will share our experience with our friends!

Fantastic food!!! Expensive, but you get what you pay for most times. We went there because it was rated as one of Vancouver’s most romantic restaurants, but I would say that’s not how we felt. There was track lighting everywhere, quite bright. Dimming would have helped, but then maybe servers couldn’t see. It was way too bright to be romantic. No visible fireplace from where we sat. Great food as I said, but if you are looking for romantic, not good for that in my opinion.

Nice, cozy atmosphere. The food was great. Pasta dishes were really good especially the wild mushroom pasta. The lamb shank was a bit dry, but tasty.

We had an absolutely great dinner at Lupo. We are from out of town and were not familiar with the restaurant when we decided to go. The restaurant is set in a beautiful restored house and the service is exceptional. I had the romaine salad and the Nero pasta with lobster and shrimp. We would definitely return to this gem.

I came here for everyday dining with a friend. I love the setting and quiet atmosphere of this restaurant. The freshly baked focaccia was amazing. The rack of lamb was also very tender and juicy. The special black truffle fettuccine of the night however was more greasy than tasty...

We chose this restaurant because it's a 2-block walk from the QE Theatre, and it's Italian after all :). It's in a renovated heritage home, and the ambience was quiet and welcoming - we sat on the second floor in the front. There are good options for gluten-free people and the kitchen seems flexible. For example, they have a great gluten free pasta you can substitute for $4 - it's well worth it because the GF pasta has the taste and feel of being home-made - maybe it is? Try the wild mushroom taglieri. The bufala salad was gorgeous and tasty and the creme brulee was a wonderful finish. My partner told me the caesar salad was the "best he had ever had" and this man knows what he is talking about! Go there soon, or at least go there before or after a show at the QE - you will not be disappointed.

Lovely ambiance and we especially liked the two salads we ordered. Service was friendly and prompt. Pasta was fresh and delicious. Dessert was a bit disappointing but the coffee was nice.

We went for dinner to celebrate Valentines Day early. Although surrounded by skyscrapers, the restaurant is in a 2-story home. The staff was great, very knowledgeable. I had the veal, and I guess my wife did too, because it sure felt like she kept asking me for more! She had the lamb shank, which I also thought was amazing, but the veal stole the show. Tiramisu for dessert was the perfect ending. We will definitely return if we come back to Vancouver.

Birthday dinner for me—with my wife, son and cousin. Service and cuisine were superior. This restaurant has been great for many years, and it is better now than ever. Most notable this time was the excellence of the staff who made certain all was superb for us....and, the quality of the salmon and veal osso buco entrees was the very highest.

My friend and I came after work, there was no parking around so we had to walk over in the pouring rain. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the host and he offered to take our coats. He looked like he’s disgusted when he had to hold our wet coats...and when I told him my friend’s scarf was on the floor as he was sorting the coats out, he just said ‘oh, sorry’ and nope he didn’t sound sorry at all. They were discussing quietly on which table they should put us..and the way they did it was really weird imo.

The food was decent for its price. Foie gras was nice. Lamb rack was exactly medium rare. The duck was a little dry but still flavourful. But I couldn’t really enjoy the food because of the service was not so great. I‘ve never written negative comments about a restaurant before. But they really made me feel uncomfortable. Yes, Lupo was busy, but they rarely checked on us. We did not get our water refilled..not even once.

I’m just really disappointed especially when I read their online comments and they are like ‘Lupo has great & attentive service’..and comparing it to the service we received? Gasp.

Neither of us had been to Lupo before so we thought we would try it. Service was excellent, really appreciated our server. The food was very good. The only minor complaint was the line up for the washroom! Old house - old plumbing.
