Yummy food. Tight seating arrangements but to be expected in a good Italian restaurant in this neighborhood. Pepe e cacio was delicious. Pesto was as well. Had 3 appetizers. All were delicious. Very enjoyable & yummy dinner.

Made reservations exactly 30 days before for our first time eating at Lupa. Our party of 5 was seated at a table the only fit 3 adults. The first waiter that we had did not tell us about the specials. Once water and wine glasses were added to the table, we had to ask to be moved so that our plates would fit. Waiter didn’t even acknowledge how uncomfortable we were. Once moved to a new table with a new waiter, we learned there were actually specials that evening. Too late, since we have already placed our order with the previous waiter. The food was good but don’t believe we will be back.

The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. There were 6 of us to celebrate a birthday/father’s day. We had a little of everything. We shared 4 starters - the prosciutto with buffala mozzarella, the chicken liver crostini, the frito misto and the special sweetbreads. The prosciutto and crostini were the stars. 4 of our group had different pastas which they all loved, 1 had oxtail and 1 had duck. The duck was incredible and there was so much of it, everyone had some. Would highly recommend for a special dinner where budget is not a problem!

Worst service I’ve ever experienced! We waited 45 minutes for a drink and right after we ordered a drink they brought us the check. They didn’t even ask if we wanted to order food (which we did as we were there for dinner). The hostess (especially her) and wait staff were so mean. Felt like they just didn’t even want us in the restaurant.

The food is excellent. The service was excellent. The outside seating was like eating in storage unit. Dingy, musty Very disappointing.
I love the food but next time will not eat in the storage unit that they call outside dining

this visit was a disappointment. took my family for graduation as this used to be one my favorite restaurants. the waiter didn't know the menu. one pasta dish was served boiling hot the other one cold. It is sad to see how the good standard that the batali franchise used to have have is no longer there.

They seemed to forget we were there and waited well past our reservation while other couples showed up and were sat. Once seated it was about another 25 minutes until anyone spoke to us. Food itself was excellent except broccoli rabe which was too salty and inedible. Servers were nice overall and past amazing. Just felt bad to be forgotten.

Food and service was amazing! Visiting from California and would definitely go back.

Only odd thing was when we arrived, we were told they needed to prepare our table - the restaurant was empty and all tables were set. They brought us to our table they had been preparing and there was an iced coffee and a laptop on the table 🤷🏻‍♀️ Other than that - everything was perfect.

We had a wonderful lunch with attentive service. The food was excellent! We had prosciutto with burrata, octopus, crispy duck, and the spaghetti with truffles and grana Padano. They even had a delicious gluten free pasta! The wine and gelato were delicious too. We’ll be back.

Funny story,… originally we were apprehensive about Lupa, for silly reasons. WHAT A HIDDEN GEM
Everything from the hostess, the waiter, and the ambiance was great and comfortable. All other patrons seemed to be enjoying themselves as well.

Highly recommend!!

We were disappointed with our lunch. We both had the crudo to start. It was large chunks of raw fish rather than thin slices which is what we were expecting. So the acid in the dressing did not permeate the inside. My partner had the branzino as his entre which was the only good dish. I had the saltimbocca. It was unrecognizable from what I expected. Usually its a cutlet or two topped with fresh sage leaves and prosciutto. This was a very thin dried out piece of something that was reminiscent of eating beef jerky. Very strange. It was hot outside and so was the inside of the restaurant. Service was fine.

The food is great, truly outstanding. The service, however was lacking and the hostess was perhaps the most rude person I've ever encountered in that position. It seemed very clear the hostess was not happy we were there, and even went so far to put us at the worst table in the restaurant despite there being many open tables. If I did not know better I believe this person saw I had booked through OpenTable and made sure to 'put us in the corner'. Truly a shame because the food is really very good.
