The service was relaxed and accommodating. No ego here just helpful, pleasant and effective. Meal was exquisite comfort food. I often hesitate with celebrity operations but this one gets it all right.

Just like being in Italy, pasta is excellent. As a party of two, we ordered two pastas, and the restaurant split them for us, so we each could enjoy both. Fresh and delicious, just like in Italy. I HIGHLY recommend the ESCAROLE. A stand out....More

We go to NY once a year for plays and restaurants, and Lupa is always one of the restaurants. We have favorite dishes--we split the escarole salad, then share the saltimbocca and the cacio e pepe. And a glass of red wine each. An excellent...More

One of the best dining experiences I've had. Husband recommended and i wasn't disappointed. Everything from the charming staff to the wine recommendations and the food was off the chart. Can't think of a better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon when visiting NY.

This has been one of our favorites for years. I don’t think Mario is involved anymore and don’t he has in years. The food is solid and the variety is wide. We have never walked away disappointed.

Went to Lupa last night for dinner with a good friend. The meal, service, wine and atmosphere were excellent. Several Roman specialties on the menu that you don't necessarily find on most Italian restaurant menus (trippa alla Romana, Carciofi alla Giudia, etc). After sharing some...More

You either have a policy of not seating a party until everyone has arrived- or you don’t. But don’t tell me that you can’t seat my wife and I as we wait for our friends to arrive, and then give our table to another guy...More

I had high expectations of this 'celebrity' restaurant but left not quite overly satisfied. The service was punctual, unobtrusive and our server was well informed. Starters: Beets with stracciatella and hazelnut dressing and asparagus with a lemon vinaigrette dressing: good. Pasta courses: The gnocchi with...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
