Food was just ok. What a terrible experience overall. Our waiter literally quarreled with our busboy which ruined the entire mood and vibe of the dinner. No one apologized. We spoke to the manager and she could care less. Very unpleasant evening.

Do NOT eat at this place. It was the worst restaurant experience in a decade for me: the food took 75 minutes to arrive from the time we ordered, and when it did two of the four dishes were wrong. We had flown from out of town in the morning to celebrate my birthday that evening and we were tired and hungry. When we asked them to correct our order and bring the right plates rapidly because we were starving they said the could not do that. The staff were not only incompetent but also rude. I repeat: do NOT eat there unless you expect to wait an enormous amount of time, get food you didn’t ordered and be treated in a disrespectful fashion.

Food is good, service very slow! Why in an empty restaurant were we seated next to a loud table of six?

Food is delicious! One of my favorite restaurants from years ago, still yummy! Everyone enjoyed their meal-
Cornish hen special/ spinach & peach salad/ short rib ragu pasta/cod.
So accommodating, we asked at the beginning if we could get individual checks-no problem! Service was excellent-asked how everything was
(We asked for too much spec which tasted too salty, they made another salad in a minute without being asked!)
We all (8) will return again & again &……

Lupa is our go-to celebration restaurant. We've eaten here dozens of times. As in the past, the food was excellent. We sat outside, so felt somewhat comfortable regarding COVID despite the closed-in outdoor seating area. However, it was extremely distressing that (other than the man busing tables) not a single employee of the restaurant wore a mask--whether indoors or outdoors. We arrived and went to the indoor hostess table: 3 women stood shoulder to shoulder greeting us, all unmasked. A server walked by, unmasked, through the dining room to the kitchen. I scanned the room and saw an unmasked bartender and 2 other unmasked servers. Throughout the course of dinner, servers came up to our table -- less than a foot away (never mind social distancing) -- none of whom wore masks.

The entrees were good, but everything was a bit salty. Server was nice, but after taking our order, never appeared again except to give us our bill. He never even asked if we wanted to drink anything so we had water. The busboys were more attentive. Food was average--certainly a lot better to be had in NYC.

Oxtail was a huge piece of bone with little meat. Pastas are pretty good but are not fresh pasta. Good but not as good as they used to be. Friendly staff.

We booked month in advance fir a special dinner on the patio. We arrived and the hostess was beyond rude rude rude. The patio was not outside dinning but rather closed in and not ventilated and beyond hot. We asked to move tables twice and she waved us off like flies. We’ve been dining there every year for 20 years when we visit nyc and will NEVER return. Worst service ever!!!

Appetizer good, secondi good. Main dish was the grilled octopus. Accompanying potatoes were cold; like out the refrigerator cold. Was told after sending back to kitchen, to have it return still cold... that's how they make it. Took it home to reheat everything and enjoy.

Excellent bucatini amarticiana and Cacio e Pepe pasta. Had the roast potatoes, mushrooms, and greens on the side. Potatoes and mushrooms I’d order again, the greens I would skip as they were sour and bland.
My wife and I felt comfortable sitting in the outdoor structure with an air purifier and open doors.

We always have eaten at Lupa on Sundays when visiting NYC from CA. Unfortunately a lot of our favorites were gone from the menu & we all found our food to be quite salty.
I think they're doing the best they can post Covid, But unfortunately it just wasn't the same

Great pasta, would love it if they had a Pinot Grigio or Riesling by the glass! The wine portion seemed a bit large for just one person! I would go back if they adjusted their wine menu so that they gave a normal glass and had more of a single glass portion. Don't mistake me, the pasta and food was delicious but without alcohol, I wouldn't give the restaurant higher than a 4 and def would not go back. Not really sure why they offer the larger portions of alcohol!

7:15 dinner reservation. We started with apps and pastas. When we wanted to add more food, we were told the kitchen was closed. Seemed odd-wasn’t like we had a late reservation. Wished our waitress would have told us that upfront. The food we did eat was outstanding!
