We expected much more. Pasta was average, we’ve tried much better dishes in neighboring restaurants. The duck was decent.

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!!

Awesome good but incredibly rude host. Barking orders at customers and easing his voice for no reason. That experienced killed the place for me. I am not going to lay premium so someone disrespects me.

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.

We ate outside under the enclosed space because it was a nice evening but the interior is also lovely, old world romantic! Food and wine was delicious, lovely upscale menu (pricey) and I would definitely go back again, especially for a celebration.

Everything was terrific—-fine food and drink, very gracious service, lovely decor. Except the rock/rap music, which clashed terribly with the simpatico mellow Italian vibe of everything else.

We had a lovely experience. Luckily we were outdoors in the covered area because there was a flash storm during our meal. The waitstaff was exceptional in addressing our dietary restrictions. They were patient with us as a chatty group who kept forgetting to look at the menu. Drinks and food were equally delicious. I would absolutely go back!

Food was good. For unknown reasons, service was not good. Our waiter was friendly, but others did not seem to take an interest in the customers. We had to ask for bread for the table four times, over the course of twenty minutes.

Great restaurant. Outstanding food. Very good service. That said, it does feel like they are trying to rush people out after 1:30 which while is the rule, doesn’t feel so nice.
