Wonderfully tasty Italian food, reasonable prices and superb service. I've had a number of lunches in La Lupa over the past couple of months with family and work colleagues. Praised by all - meat eaters and vegetarians.

When planning our low key wedding we decided against a reception and instead looked for a pre - ceremony lunch. We visited Lupa and Sami the manager showed us several menu options. We picked their standard group menu but there was a more 'weddingy' one including drinks if wanted. Any queries leading up to the day were quickly answered and... More

Visited on here on a quiet Friday lunchtime. It's a nicely kept dining room and the menu has a nice range. It's particularly interesting that the specials menu is a fish specials menu, it took some effort not to go for something from this. I settled on the pork tenderloin from the a La carte menu. This was a surprisingly... More

Restaurant was quiet so initially worried that locals avoided it for a reason but we had great service and food was excellent. The grilled seabass and prawn linguine was fantastic. Recommended

Six of us for supper. Mixed review. Food excellent, service appalling. This really is a case of "front of house" letting the "kitchen" down" The waiting staff, all smart and attractive, really didn't want to know. I can honestly say this is the worst service i have ever encountered. A shame as the food, cooking and quality of ingredients were... More

Visited with family for an evening meal. Had a couple of starters to share and a main each. All the food was fantastic, very tasty and very well cooked. Service was great too. I'm sure we will be going there again in the future.

Thank Richard C
