Were greeted by a friendly and happy manager who was more than happy to accommodate and there was less than a 10 minute wait before we were seated which was a surprise as we were expecting longer than that! The staff were so friendly and chatty and... More

My wife and I had different pasta dishes. Both meals were plentiful and very enjoyable. The table for two was very small and there was not much room for plates and glasses. That said, I would go again but ask for a bigger table.

We both ordered pasta,... More

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.
