This was my 3rd time at Lupo and once again, was thrilled with the service, friendliness of our server, knowledge, and professionalism. The food is top notch, never a disappointment. Every detail is precise. We'll keep coming back.

Excellent Italian dinner here for our first visit. All our entrées were excellent and the Burrata we shared for a starter was outstanding. Didn't even know about this place before but stumpled onto it while searching online. Will definitely visit again next time we are in Vancouver.

An Italian restaurant with cosy atmosphere. Excellent service by an Italian server called Salvatore, he was courteous to recommend us what to eat and being very friendly and patient. Food served quick at right temperature. Food tasted good. Restroom is kept like 5 star hotel standard.

Lupo is one of our favorite restaurants in Vancouver. The pasta is made in house and excellent. We especially love the fettucine with chicken, truffles, and cream. The veal and the lamb are delicious, with wonderful sauces. The specials are creative and everything is beautifully presented. We like the fact that it is a house divided into smaller rooms which keeps the noise level down. We always have at least two meals here when we are in Vancouver.

Service was excellent and the burrata appetizer was very good however my cannelloni was cold. This restaurant can be very hit and miss. If they worked on their consistency they would be a 5 Star.

Hidden Gem! The Octopus Mosaic is a wonderful dish, and the Cannoli is very authentic felt like I was in Italy. Loved it!

Been to Lupo many times. Usually a solid 7.5/10. This time was about a 5. Very frustrated that the online menu never matches the actual menu. This time no risotto at all was on the menu. Found the service was slow, rarely seeing our waitress. Took 5-7 min to be greeted at our table and get drinks. “Ice”water was room temp. Took 15 min to actually pay. Braised short rib was good. The “special” citrus crab pasta was almost inedible. Wasn’t the best dining experience for our anniversary.

Charming restaurant with interesting dishes. All options were tasty but a little heavy handed with the salt. Warm, friendly and attentive service overall. At the moment they asked for my order, the gal was called away by another and upon her return, they just ran out of the only thing I wanted. I could understand except the table that arrived and seated 10 minutes after us was eating the very item I craved!

A most enjoyable meal! Our waitress Lenka was the greatest! All the food came hot, delicious and was beautifully presented! The Barata Cheese was excellent. We had the Halibut and Short ribs as entrees, shared the fresh crab ravioli, Barata cheese and fresh focaccia bread and ended the evening with their famous Tiramisu and Mango/white chocolate ice cream desserts!

Can't wait to go back.

Also good luck with your new baby Lenka!

Terrible and overrated . We went on the strength of ratings. Ossetia Bucco was dry and had no flavor. Veal chop the same. Special pasta with morels had no flavor. Would not go back! New chef?

Three women a bit cranky from too much travel just looking for a good meal. What a wonderful surprise... food sublime and good service to boot. We enjoyed the octopus salad, pasta, good wine and dessert and left delighted,refreshed and satisfied.
Lupo is a gem, well worth a visit.

I have wanted to go to Lupo for many years but somehow I never made it there. We just went for my son’s birthday and it was amazing. The service was impeccable, the food was fantastic, and we loved the feel of the restaurant. I would not hesitate to recommend Lupo as a top restaurant in Vancouver!!

I have worked as a waiter in a very good classic French restaurant. I am a tough customer to please. I enjoy dinning out, but very few restaurants hit on all of the the big three. Food, service and Atmosphere. On that Friday Lupo hit on all three. Malory our server was perfect. The price is on the higher side but well worth it. It was relaxed, service was impeccable, but invisible. Food was excellent. I will be back.
