A neighborhood gem. Both the food and wine were very good and reasonably priced. Her party also felt we received attentive and courteous service. When asked, our waitress gave very good recommendations for wine pairings with their dishes.

Pasta was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The wine list is good, but the upcharge was significantly higher than I would have expected. The Chef's Table is nice because away from everywhere else and so only the noise from the kitchen. This was perfect to have a good conversation during dinner and has a nice ambiance to it.

We prefer this location to the mothership on 14th Street. The food is always excellent (the carciofi are even better than they are in Rome), the service low-key and the atmosphere is relaxing, dark and hospitable. This would be your ideal local restaurant if local restaurants served heart-breakingly good Italian dishes. I could imagine the cacio e pepe as my last meal.

Unfortunately this was such a different experience from my previous visit.
My husband and I each started with a nice glass of wine and were served stale bread to go with it.
I had an excellent Lupo salad but my husband said his caesar style salad was just so-so.
My husband had the branzino and once again said it was just so-so.
I had the short rib ravioli and it was just plain not good. It was served only lukewarm and the ravioli were hard- not al dente but hard. Very disappointing.
Probably will not go back.

Lupo Verde Osteria is a real Italian restaurant and the dishes have an Italian taste. You can eat Prosciutto di Parma, Carciofi alla Giuda or Ravioli del Plin together an excellent wine Roero Arneis of Vietti. The personnel is very kind and polite. For sure this is one of the best restaurant in DC.

An outstanding meal from start to finish. We had squash blossoms with pesto and Heirloom tomatoes with Burrata to start, followed by divine braised short rib agnolotti in a butter sage sauce and finally a delicious tiramisu. Truly wonderful meal.

Good food but some of the description on the menu did not match the plate given (watercress was replaced by mixed greens and classic sauce for fried artichoke replaced with green sauce) - could have used another waiter on staff so when dealing with high noise level we could have had a better service experience.

We love Lupo Verde .. it’s our neighborhood go to... Food is always fantastic and our picky eater son can always find something that he likes. My husband got the whole fish special .. they debone and serve tableside.. I got the chicken. You may say to yourself.. why would you get chicken at an Italian restaurant... because it’s crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside with a wonderful sauce that is light and not too much...our son got the spaghetti pomodoro with burrata and cherry tomatoes... he loved it.. the meat and cheese tray is a family favorite so we always get that too.. it’s a cozy restaurant with friendly service and really good food.. what’s not to love!!!

Very disappointing experience. Ordered one of the "homemade" pastas as that is reportedly a specialty: aglio e olio. Pasta was so salty it was difficult to taste anything else. Though service overall was good, with rapid refills of water (essential in my case given high salt content of pasta), would not return.

This is a lovely, friendly neighborhood gem. The staff is very friendly. We even met the chef, who came from the back to meet and welcome guests.
Everything was fresh and delicious. The homemade pasta was light and full of flavor.
We hope to return again and again.

Interesting and yummy antipasti. The artichokes are a favourite. We’ve always had very attentive, but not too attentive, service. But it’s a little too pricey. Try it for lunch first. Same or very, very similar menu.

I cannot say enough good things about Lupo Verde. I’ve been here twice now, and everything is fantastic. Even something as simple as cacio e pepe is worth a special trip. You can’t make it like this at home! The servers were very friendly and checked on our table personally many times, spending time talking with us about Italy, music, the food, anything. What a great experience. Highly recommend.
