Lupa is the immortal Roman wolf goddess who trains Roman Demi gods in the ways of their city. Over seven foot tall & with beautiful chocolate red fur, she is reputed to have eyes as silver as the mist. Remus & Romulus were the twin sons of Mars & Rhea Silvia, who were thrown into the great Tiber river at the command of their evil great- uncle Amulius. They were saved by the great she - wolf who nurtured & raised them as her own young. Having grown strong under her guidance, the twins destroyed Amulius & established the city of Rome.
Lupa is a neighbourhood Osteria where one feels comfortable enjoying a casual affordable family dinner of pizza & pasta with a carafe of house wine or dining on shellfish, fresh fish & veal with corporate clients. We offer an inviting bar for a pre or post dinner cocktail or grab a pizza & a craft beer at a bar table. Pasta is homemade & pizza is wood fired using only imported Italian flour, organic free range chickens & the finest veal we can source add to the authentic Italian experience.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, who wants very good food & a pleasant atmosphere. Thank you for a great evening, the food was out of this world!
You get more than you spend in this restaurant. Very nice environment, great service, friendly crew. Awesome decor, general ambiance. I had the authentic, freshly made pasta & it was superb!
There are Italian restaurants & then there's Lupa. My all-time favorite restaurant!
I took my fiance for dinner & had a great experience at Lupa. The food came promptly & presentation of everything was excellent! The service was great & the staff were extremely knowledgeable.
We visited last Saturday, seated by friendly staff who were quick, efficient, & on top of things. The food was out very quickly, the dinner was great & we were well looked after with a smile. We will definitely be go back soon.
This was the first time my husband and I have visited this restaurant. Food is freshly prepared and the staff are warm and friendly. Good job guys, the menu is fabulous, keeping the food of perfect quality yet still very affordable.
