Overcooked pasta, and it seemed like they were skimping on anything that was not a very inexpensive ingredient. It was also freezing and the heating mechanisms were not working well.

My husband & I were celebrating our anniversary. Our first time dining out this Winter and we wanted a special place that is consistently excellent. We sat outside and there was heating. The food & service was top notch, as well as finely made cocktails. We had a wonderful evening. Fine dining at it’s best. The restaurant took all safety measures, and even paying was no touch (use your smart phone).

Food was delicious. This is our 3rd time there and the food does not disappoint. There was a special of Gnocchi with Truffle and well....it was worth every penny.

Lupa exceeded my expectations. From the waitstaff asking if the music was too loud, to being served complimentary bites, to each dish tasting farm-to-table fresh. Simply divine!! Can’t wait to go back!! Portions are modest, so def recommend having at least two courses (app and primi or primi and secondi).

My husband and I found the perfect restaurant for an early V-day dinner. Thank you Indira for a wonderful wine suggestion. An upcoming sommelier who took the time to steer us to a wonderful value wine! The short rib ragu and cod kept us warm in the freezing temps!

Lupa had been on my to do list for a while now and I was not disappointed. Everyone who worked there was extremely helpful and hospitable. The foccacia they put on the table beforehand is lights out amazing. I was stuck on three different pastas to try and when I asked the waiter he didn't hesitate for a second to say the bucatini all' amatriciana. It was excellent. The pasta was cooked to perfection, the housemade guanciale was delicious and the deeply flavored sauce with chili flakes was outstanding. We also ordered the burrata was fresh and creamy and the marinated artichokes were tender and very very good.

Delicious food but it’s a shame we had to outdoor dine in 28 degree weather. Needs more lamps. Our amazing food got cold too fast but the staff was incredibly accommodating about reheating it. Highly recommend the prosciutto and buratta

Our visit was up and down, but I would still go back. Lovely, attentive staff. We got a corner table which was too far away from the heat lamp to feel it, I was uncomfortably cold the entire time- understand this is difficult in covid times, just wish a tiny little space heater might have been added for tables tucked away in the corner. The focaccia comes out right away for the table and is amazing. Wow, I wish we asked if we could have had a 2nd basket. Next, apps. He got the meatballs and liked them. I got the burrata, and almost loved it. The sea salt sprinkled around the edge was so aggressive it ruined the dish. Bites without salt were good. Bites with salt were painful. Next, entrees. I got the strozzapreti with short rib ragu. It was cooked well and tender, but the short rib didn't have much flavor. He got the lamb ragu which was on special. OH MY GOODNESS, why isn't this on the regular menu?? This was the best ragu I have ever had! The lamb was melt in your mouth tender, the dish slightly spicy. There was only 1 item on dessert and it was not appetizing so we passed. Drinks- expensive but worth it. My hot toddy was pricey, but it was warm, it was big, and it was strong. I never needed a second. I felt that drink. Thank you bartender.

Food was good and wine list impressive, albeit a bit overpriced. Service seemed well meaning but woefully untrained and unempowered. The service level was not adequate for the price points and quality of food. Hope it improves.

The customer service, execution on cuisine and attention to detail were top notch. Don't miss out on the burrata with sunchoke and sunflower seeds or the hedgehog mushroom pasta special. The star of dessert was the tartufo. I'm already looking forward to my next visit which won't come soon enough!
