Great food. Good drinks. Nice quaint place, Some of the tables are very awkward in their space.

Absolutely love the ambiance and experience I enjoy when I dine at Lupo Verde. The setting is beautiful, and everything that comes to the table is delicious.

Second time dining at Lupo Verde, first time was during brunch-service was extremely slow but gave them the benefit of the doubt, the restaurant gets very busy during brunch. This time was for a birthday dinner. We had a 9:15 reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Once we were sat it took another 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive. After waiting another 40, our waitress informed us that she had lost our ticket and took our order for a second time. We finally got our dinner at 10:50 pm. To the waitresses credit she did bring the manager over who comped our pasta which was nice, but a 9:15 dinner turned into a whole night affair. We finally left the restaurant at 11:30 pm. Would not recommend-so many other places to get good Italian in the city.

The wait staff was nice and good. The high chairs are not comfortable and it was either too hot or too cold all night from door.. the brussle sprouts would have been good if they weren't fried as with the mushrooms on the polenta and the artichokes.... it's heavy and sits like a brick in the belly...a bad chef shortcut....otherwise the food was pretty good.

Most fun we’ve had in a long time. Pasta is homemade and melts in your mouth and before that we inhaled the fennel/orange salad. Wine, shots, coffee and bombolone later, full and happy!!!! Grazie per tutto!

Fun lively place with good Italian food. Not your typical Italian fare. Cozy but not cramped. Outside dining too

Food was too salty. I have no idea why his place is popular. I would not return. I started with the artichokes. Inedibly salty. The delicious looking bread was also too salt. The top is literally covered in salt. I had the butternut squash pasta. Not cooked enough

The server was very accommodating and tried to make me happy and didn’t charge for the artichokes. It certainly wasn’t his fault the food is bad

The waiter was extremely unwelcoming and was rushing us out of the door. I made this reservation a week in advance. They should have been prepared to have us there over an hour. I really used to enjoy this place and love the food. I chose this place for my birthday and made a note about it in advance. They completely forgot and when reminded the server seemed extremely annoyed. Used to love this place but now I will never eat here again.

Thanks for the horrible service!

A romantic atmosphere with memorable dishes; we had a cheeseboard for appetizers, cacio e pepe and cappellacci for entrees, and tiramisu for dessert. Food was excellent and in ideal portion sizes, service was optimally attentive.

The homemade pasta is to die for. So delicious! I've had both the gnocchi and squid ink pasta and both were phenomenal. Nice atmosphere to boot. Highly recommend!

We love Lupo Verde , the food and the ambiance. The only thing is that we had a reservation at 8 pm and they could only seat us until 8:45. And by that time we were extremely hungry and slightly drunk from all the drinks we ordered while we waited...

I came with my date for the dinner and everything was great Except the portion of food!IT WAS FOR 3-YEAR-OLD KIDSSSSS! I suggested the place and when we saw food I was SO EMBARRASSED BEFORE MY MAN!!!! the price and portion of food did not match AT ALL. I WAS DUMMY AND ORDER CHEESE AND MEAT TRAIT AND I WISH DID NOT! IT WAS FEW SLICES THAT BARELY FULL OUR EMPTY TOMMY AFTER DINNER. With the money we paid we could have great food in other places not left this place hungry!!! NEVER EVER RECOMMEND YOU! SORRYYY!

We had to wait 20 minutes for our table although we had a reservation. Except for that, the food and service was great.
