We’re new to the area and have walked by the restaurant several times; I finally made us reservations fir dinner and we were in awe the moment we walked in.

Our waiter was very enthusiastic about explaining all of the menu items to us and recommended some of his favorites. (We told him it was our first visit!)

Our charcuterie appetizer had some great surprises—the truffle cheese dipped in honey was amazing!—and the breads were a perfect complement.

For dinner we ordered the squid ink and lobster bucatini, cacio e pepe, gnocchi, and a full rack of lamb to share at the table. Everything was delicious! The lamb was cooked just right and the cacio e pepe was the clear favorite among the pasta dishes.

Dessert was chocolate gelato and the bomboloni. We were also served a complimentary round of limoncello...just like dining in Italy!

We loved the ambiance, the decor, and the music. The food and the service was top-notch. We’re already planning our next visit...we have absolutely fallen in love with Lupo Verde!

Decided on this restaurant because of the reviews. I had a reservation set up for 7pm. I arrived at 7:01pm and we didn’t get seated till 7:47pm . What was the point of having a reservation. What made it worse .. groups of 4 were being seated straight of the street. I thought I was being paranoid. But I ask the group and they said the just walked up and got seated.
When were were finally seated . No real apology. We went on to order our food . I ordered the mussels. They were small and clearly not fresh . I stop after a few . I than went on to order the pasta dish (which was good). Our server was all over the place, he would keep forgetting about us . I will prolly never come back to this restaurant. Such a bad experience for my bday . Kinda sad I wasted it there .

I arrived at the place with a reservation and they took time to give me the table. the attention was bad. I had to ask for things more than once and the waiter had many tables to attend to. I asked for a drink and they forgot.

Much of our bad experience was beyond the restaurants control. There was construction going on that was at a head banging level. But more importantly, two of us had the carbonara pasta and it was bland, undercooked, luke warm and dripping in uncooked egg yolk. It should be such a simple and joyous and completely satisfying dish and it was barely worth eating. But after a 45 minute wait for a patio table, we were starving and didn’t have the stamina to send it back. Our guests seemed to enjoy their vanilla pancakes and the frittata though. The service was cheerful and excellent. But all in all I wish I had not spent a nice Saturday lunch at Lupo Verde.

Great date night spot! We had a reservation for 6:15 pm on a Thursday and there was plenty of space on the patio. The service was impeccable at the beginning but as the restaurant filled up a bit more, it got just a tad bit slower. But the food was amazing and our server had great suggestions for the charcuterie board. We'll be back!

A favorite neighborhood spot. Great service, pretty patio, and delicious homemade Italian. They went out of our way to accommodate our group of six on the very popular patio. My only wish is that we were actually able to reserve for patio.

5 stars & as usual look forward to the next visit.

Reservations are only for inside. Outside is first come first served. In the pandemic this is backwards. Lupo should allow outside table reservations. Really.

We arrived and a table wasn’t available outside, we said inside would be fine for dining. We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation and it took the waiter 10 minutes to take our drink order. Then, drink order came out wrong. The food was meh, service was deplorable. I’ve been to Lupo Verde for brunch and enjoyed it, was disappointed and embarrassed as I chose this restaurant for my family expecting it to be quality.

Marvelous! A fantastic presentation of culinary delights. The deep fried artichoke was surprisingly elegant and a pleasant exposure to the meal. We enjoyed a perfectly cooked steak and the most delicate short rib beef wrapped raviolis. The service was spectacular and extremely prompt. Highly recommend!!
