They have a pretty tight outdoor space for pandemic seating with a lot of activity going on around it; however, the food and the service were excellent. I have a lot of Italian food in NYC and this was really one of the best meals I have had.
Lupa is always at the top of their game. They have quickly adapted to the new environment. Service, food and ambiance are great.
Despite the good food and service, the outdoor tables are definitely not 6 ft apart. Still a nice visit though.
Enjoyed our first outdoor dinner at Lupa. I felt very safe and comfortable, and we were even protected when it started to rain. The service was excellent and efficient. The prosecco and Aglianico by the glass were excellent. The food was very good, a delicious caprese and marinated baby artichokes. My wife had fried calamari with fennel and artichokes. It seemed that the vegetables had been fried separately, and they were great (I'm a veggie). The pasta pomodoro was good, although just a bit too al dente for me.
Amazing pastas - get the bucatini. Service was good as well but they rushed us a bit which dampened the mood
Food was characteristically bad. 2 or our 3 pasta dishes were poor. One had to be sent back.
Loved the outdoor dining at Luna. As always, food, service and ambiance perfect.
Had a great time. Food was delicious but would have loved a few more vegetarian options with fresh Pasta.
Very good menu with options for everyone. The gemelli with sausage and stinging nettle pesto was exceptional. A little disappointed as it didn’t seem like they made their own pasta
The pastas at Lupa are outstanding. They are very accommodating should you want to share amongst your party. My Aperol Spritz was one of the best I've had. We will definitely be back.
Did not feel safe with the density of their tables.
Lupa had been one of our favorite places to eat. The food seems to have changed substantially. First the wrong order was submitted and we had to wait a long time for the right order. Finally, when our main courses came they were too raw and so salty we had to send them back which we never want to do. They only cooked it longer and sent the same plate out which was too salty to eat. We also could not get the attention of our waitress so we could ask for water.
Bummer. We use to love it
Lupa is one of my favorite resteaurabrs. But the ldd
Amazing amazing food I love it and will come back for sure
Absolutely loved Sunday brunch here!!
Awesome. Great server, great pasta, great wine, romantic street seating - even with Covid, it was a blast. I highly recommend. Note that this is a very PASTA centric restaurant. The idea here is simple, purist, al dente pasta. If you want big dishes an Bucca di Beppo style, that's not what this is. It's a neighborhood gem and classy.
Bring a date, the parents, or maybe a longtime friend. Awesome spot.
Always so good. Even after 20 years!
Greatly exceeded my expectations. The food took just a tad long but well worth the wait! You can see the care that they put into the food and in each plate individually. I would highly recommend this place if you like wine and gnocchi. This place will not let you down.
For the first time in many many years, having visited at least 50 times, I had a very disappointing evening at Lupa while celebrating my son's birthday. Food, and service were both subpar and not in keeping with what I have come to expect from Lupa.
Terrific pasta, an excellent Italian wine list, and professional and warm service extending even to the bus people.
Really a delicious kitchen but be careful if you order pasta with chanterelles. They’ll serve you oyster mushrooms and neither apologize Nor offer a discount unless you insist. And then they’ll be churlish about it.
Food and wine were excellent. Service was not. We were there a good 45 minutes and no waiter. Asked several times and finally got someone. I ate there previously and service was good. But when you bring guest and have 5 bottles of wine you expect decent service
The menu choices for someone who wants healthier options is practically non existent. All of the menu items, are buried in sauce or fried. I ordered a crispy fish; I spoke to the waiter about this entree in detail, however it was not clear to me that it was it batter fried. Not only was it fried, there was more batter covering than there was fish; HUGELY disappointing - - especially for the money. I have eaten at Lupa several times and I have always enjoyed my meal. This time, I got the impression new chef/new menu - not impressed!! Finally, the music was too loud; had to talk over it. Ridiculous!
My daughter and I had a great dinner at Lupa. Everything we ate was delicious. We each started with an Aperol Spritz, and then the sommelier recommended a perfect flinty, mineral-y white. We shared everything - artichoke hearts, broccolini, amazing fluke crudo (don't miss that!), cacio e pepe, and a hearty special lamb pasta. We couldn't pass up the tartufo for dessert, and ate all of the cheesecake, even though we didn't mean to! Hospitality at Lupa is warm and welcoming, and the noise level is comfortable for conversation.
I have been eating here for almost 20 years. We moved to California 12 years ago but Lupa is always a must when we return to NYC. I was so disappointed this time. My favorite dish (Ricotta Gnocci with Sausage & Fennel) was different this time. Cream was added and the sausage was not longer visible. The Saltimbocca was dry. The Braciola special was also dry. Sadly after 20 years, I may have to remove this restaurant from my "must list".
great restaraunt with delicious food and very fast service!
Very good dining experience. Good food and excellent service at a comfortable table for the four of us.
Staff was helpful and knowledgeable but food was a little underwhelming especially for the price. Atmosphere was loud and the heat of the room had us stepping outside for air to cool off
Lupa is always the best, and Victoria is the best waitress
Cacio e pepe is so good!!!!!!!! Great wine list too
if you order pasta (I chose the “pasta tasting” menu!) recommend it to be hot. Lukewarm pasta spoils the whole experience. Italian pasta should not just be “al dente”: you should see the smoke from your plate!
Superb food and exceptional attentive service in a ‘Friday night’ atmosphere- festive, fun. Great appetizers, perfect pasta dishes, and superb wine choices by sommelier. Our favorite spot in Washington Square area.
Absolutely loved this place. Every bite was delicious. Trendy but not at all pretentious. Attentive and friendly service, great wine. Will be back!
Truffle tasing menu was phenominal. The lamb was equally as good. One of the best meals in NYC I’ve ever had.
Great food, very friendly staff!
Lupa is always on point and one of our favorites. Their pastas are all perfectly prepared and full of flavor. Some favorites are the tripe appetizer, any pesto they are making, and the veal saltimboca.
Great service and excellent food cozy and professional at the same time
The food and service were very-good to excellent but our table, near the front door, was constantly disturbed by those waiting for tables, even to the point where people were knocking in to us, crowding our space and making it nearly impossible at times to have a conversation. The staff did nothing to remedy the situation, which definitely took away from our overall experience. What made this even more disappointing is that we had a reservation and having eaten at Lupa in the past, we had recommended the restaurant to the guests we had brought to the restaurant.
The food was as wonderful as it’s always been.
this is favorite place for pasta. there is always a special item but we keep going back to
our usual.....buccatini l'mericiana...... its the best. the staff is friendly and helpful. its a nice lively atmosphere. really fun at the bar, too.
