Super service, great value. I've been here a number of times -- including several visits with large groups -- and the staff has always been SUPERB. They are attentive, friendly, and have made great wine recommendations to some of my fussier wine-drinking companions. The food is delicious -- I remember a particularly tasty ravioli. Also, the atmosphere is laid back and friendly and I can always get a table. It's not obnoxiously packed with people.
We went there after the wonderful write up on the chronicle and we coludn't agree more.The food was eccellent and so was the frendly service.
we will be back for sure.
Charming.... but average. The restaurant is hit and miss. Some pasta dishes like the papardelle with lamb are amazing. Rich, robust, perfectly al dente. But then others are oversauced. In the 4 visits i've been to the restaurant, the service always seemed harried and in the weeds.. even on a monday night. The interior is ordinary. Nothing spectacular on the wine list. I'd rate this as average.
The service was excellent, a nice place to eat and a great value. My mother in law comes in from San Mateo just to eat there.
They make her anything she wants and treats everyone like family.
Great place at affordable price.
What a welcome addition to the Noe Valley/Castro/Mission area - an authentic Roman-style restaurant that has a relaxed atmosphere and is affordable. Service has been friendly and the quality of food has been consistently top notch. This has been one of the closest things I have found in the Bay Area to the trattorias in Rome. Not stuffy, not nouvelle, just a real taste of Rome. (I can even practice my Italian with the waiters). It has become a weekly regular for my family.
My favorite dishes that I have tried: Bucatini All' Amatraciana, Insalata di Finnochi, Cioppino. For desert the Tiramisu or the white chocolate and lemon tart - unbelievably light, even if you have over indulged in the home made bread.
Favorite SF Italian!. We have become regulars at Lupa and are always impressed by the high quality and freshness of ingredients as well as authenticity of the dishes. Service is always very friendly and helpful. Nice casual charm and decent prices for the value!
Cozy little restaurant. The veal was excellent. The wait staff was prompt and knowledgeable, if a little rough around the edges. If you're lucky, you can sit by the fire near the front door.
Lupa is rad!. I've eaten at Lupa a few times now and everytime I go there, I've come out feeling happy, full, and satisfied. Not only is the service prompt and friendly, the food is classically great! The gnocchi is to die for and so are their desserts (especially their panna cotta)! I highly recommend this intimate neighborhood Italian gem to all who want a great meal with friendly service and reasonable prices!!
EXCELLENT. What can I say? We had a great experience all around. Service? Attentive! Hospitality? Warm! Food? Excellent! There were four of us, so we had a little of everything - actually a lot. Tortelloni and gnocchi were great. Lasagna was the best I've had. Entrees were all cooked to perfection. Desserts were very good.
No Customer Service Management. Experience started well -- good antipasta and soup/salad. Main course took a very long time -- 40 minutes from time of order. Cooks seemed overwhelmed with three or four larger (6 - 9 people) parties. Our party was only two. I think they lost our order, but wouldn't confess it. When we finally received the entres, the nightly fish special (Sole) was mangled up into about a dozen pieces. We asked the chef and waiter if that food presentation was acceptable to them. The chef confessed it was not their normal way of doing things. A short while later, the chef came over to our table and asked us to leave right away and that dinner was complimentary. This place should be out of business!
