La Lupa is a long established restaurant in the centre of Southampton, I last came in for a Christmas do some years ago and it was interesting to revisit it after some years. The interior is more chic and moden than I remember and the toilets are clean and of a high standard. We dropped in for a spot of... More

Went for a works Christmas lunch and ordered the pate for starter (yummy), steak (even more yummy) and chips and actually can't remember what the desert was. Anyway - the steak was mind blowing, melt in the mouth stuff but unfortunately the chips were very definitely not cooked...Damn! Service was great and the restaurant is lovely inside.

About 20 of us visited the restaurant for our Christmas lunch. This review is based on myself alone. Firstly, the staff looked bored and miserable 99% of the time which doesn't put one in the festive spirit. I had arranged prior decisions about food with dietary requirements, all of which were forgotten leaving members of our group without food for... More

We asked for larger than normal T Bone steaks, they ordered in 12x 20oz steaks and then cooked them to perfection, absolutely fantastic customer service and amazing steaks. With out a doubt the best we have had in the Southampton area.

We booked out Xmas party here because of the good reviews, however as soon as I walked in I wanted to leave I was expecting a nice warm atmosphere instead I was greeted with bright lights and a hell of a lot of rowdy noise! I couldn't speak to anyone as too much shouting and screaming from the table behind... More

Hi Thank you for taking the time to review our Restaurant. We are a small, independent family run business and always welcome feedback. With regards to the food, everything is freshly prepared on site and I can assure you the carrots and potatoes were not from a frozen packet - our vegetables are bought in everyday from a local supplier....
