    Very disappointed. LP used to be very good and friendly. Not anymore. Carpaccio was microscopic for $20. Service very poor. Ordered bread twice to complement carpaccio but it never came. Fish was decent but I will not go back.

    Made a reservation for bday with a special request to sit by a window, ended up seating us upstairs in the middle, even though there were available spaces on Tuesday night. No beers available listed on menu and most importantly ordered a recommend pasta dish which was not that great at all, couldn’t even finish it. Service also lacked, wanted to order wine with the pasta dish and the waiter was just nowhere to be found. We ended up throwing in the towel, paid the tab and went to another place. For a price and poor service definitely not worth it.

    What a find!! Delightfully small and would be perfect for a group party. One must allow a bit of time for a meal here because the food is not cooked until it is ordered. So that makes for a bit of a wait. However,the wait is worth it because the food is excellent and well seasoned. I had the mussels and they were well seasoned and delicious. My daughter had the shrimp and pasta and she gave it rave reviews. We also ride the house made doughnuts- small, warm and served with a chocolate sauce. Excellent.

    Waited 15 min at desk before acknowledgment. Good service took 2 hours. The forgot to make one of the apps and the waitress couldn’t care less. She was laughing about it when admitted and did nothing to rectify. Worst octopus I’ve ever had. No flavor. Cacio and Pepe was bland. Had such high hopes due to sister restaurant but beyond a disappointment.

    The food was delicious, we ordered the endive salad, spaghetti caccio and pepe, the branzino and the special fish of the day. Everything was cooked yo perfection. The only negative is that the table was way too small for 3 people in a very small space. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    This was our first time at Lupo Verde Osteria and not sure we will go again. The restaurant is very pretty, there is ample street parking and the staff could not have been nicer. We just thought the food was average at best. There was almost no flavor to our cacio e pepe and our frito misto was bland as was our pizza. We found we needed to add red pepper flakes and grated parmesan for any real flavor to the pizza and cacio e pepe. Wine selection was good however so there was that. I would definitely come back for a drink at the bar that looks cozy and inviting.

    I love Lupo Verde. They get it, for the most part. the only change to our lunch involved me ordering off the menu. I asked for the Italian sandwich, but asked if they could serve it without bread on lettuce, i.e., make it a salad. The chef put the ingredients from a sandwich, large slices of meat and cheese, on four pieces of lettuce on a plate, I know it was off-menu, but it seems like an opportunity for Lupo Verde to substantially increase their lunch menu by giving people who don’t want bread the choice of a good salad. Nonetheless, the restaurant is a great, affordable neighborhood restaurant.

    The restaurant is very nice. Great environment and service. I was disappointed about the frittura mista and the pizza. The calamari were not fresh and the pizza has not good mozzarella cheese. Just the pasta was very good. It was my birthday and I spent good time, but I will not coming back because my guests did not enjoy the food.

    We were celebrating our son’s birthday and I mentioned this in the notes section when I made the reservation on open table. We would have appreciated a small candle on a dessert that we ordered! It would have been a nice surprise for our son. The waitress did not even acknowledge our special occasion or ask if we were celebrating anything special. Why bother asking about the occasion upon reservation!!!!!

    I’ve come back multiple times for their Cacio e pepe but I went last night for dinner and service was awful. I assume they are under staffed. I saw the server twice, once to order and once to pay. She was very rushed when doing everything. She didn’t even confirm our order, my husband ordered the eggplant milanese and ended up getting a lasagna. We didn’t even bother complaining because the food took so long to come and we were so hungry! Even the Cacio e Pepe was a little off last night, the pasta was Al dente and yummy but lacked a little pepper flavor. The polpo is also a favorite of ours as well and it was a little over cooked and on the rubbery side. Thankfully the fried artichoke was delicious, but I’m unsure if this is a one off situation or will continue to happen.

    First time dining. Was disappointed based on all the 5 star reviews on OT. Restaurant was not busy, less than half the tables were occupied, but service was glacial. No bread was offered at start of ordering. After finishing our salad we were asked if there was anything else they could get us. We asked for bread. The bread was finally delivered as we were taking the last bites of our entree. It was 5 small pieces of focaccia that did not have much flavor, and by then we were not really looking to have bread having finished out meal. One diner ordered the Nerano pasta. It was not what we were expecting. It was essentially pasta in a cream sauce with grilled zucchini on top. The bolognese pasta was good, but nothing special for an Italian restaurant. We were hoping to have found a new neighborhood favorite, but at these prices we expect better service and more memorable food

    Excellent friendly and attentive service. Attractively decorated restaurant. Vegetarian bean salad was delicious. Pasta dish was disappointing - the pasta itself was only warm when served and seemed like it had been sitting around or merely warmed up. Wonderful fresh tasting panna cotta.

    Quality of foods and prep were on point. My Bolognese was a good but lacked some depth, was one facet of taste. Quality of the pasta was amazing and cooked perfectly. I wish they had left the pasta in the sauce a bit longer, at times some of the bites were a bit doughy. Tiramisu didn't disappoint, very light an delicate. Our waitress seemed inattentive at times, in her defense she was really busy and had a large section. We want to try the Cacio e Pepe so we will be back.

    We lunched outdoors on the front patio (covered) on a very pleasant August weekday afternoon, although construction across the street was a little noisy. We had the patio to ourselves for most of the time, so space was not a concern. Service was good, wait staff friendly and efficient. Our food (split a "house" salad and individual pizzas) enjoyable and ample. Price above average. Would certainly return.

    Although we live nearby, this was our very first visit and we could not have been more delighted! We started with some craft cocktails at the bar with another couple. The host and bar staff were incredibly personable and hospitable. We then climbed the circular stairs to the 2nd floor dining room where we found the most happy and fun waiter ever. He made many good recommendations for food and a bottle of Pinot about and a bottle of Alberino. The pasta and pizza were delicious and the appetizers were to die for. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking tasty Italian gourmet cuisine! Yummy-yum!!
