27th Anniversary dinner. Matt was our server. We received a friendly welcome. Matt answered all our questions about the menu. He was knowledgeable and attentive. First visit to the restaurant and won’t be our last. Presentation of each course was beautiful and the food was delicious! Highly recommend!

Great restaurant with amazing food! The pasta is very very good! Our server was great and really nice. The lady who brought the machine to check us out was unnecessarily snarky with me. I was under the impression that they gave a dessert for celebrations: our anniversary. Turns out they don’t, but I could’ve done without the attitude. But on that note, I think considering the cost of the restaurant, it wouldn’t kill the business to offer something of their choosing for special occasions.

This is a long time successful restaurant in Vancouver. Have dined here before years ago and this time it didn’t disappoint. Everything was prepared perfectly and the selection of wines to accompany were spot on. Can’t go wrong with eating here!!

I didn't find the hostess very friendly or welcoming, she didn't offer to take our coats, unless they don't have coat check. The server wasn't overly friendly either, but he did the basics, and he was pleasant. The burrata was delicious, and tomatoes were the sweetest I have ever tasted! The focaccia bread was warm and tasty, almost like a mini pizza with cheese, zucchini, and tomatoes! The Fettuccini with chicken, prosciutto, and peas was a light, fresh dish, very good. The cannelloni with chicken was good, and appreciated they subbed tomato sauce upon request. The almond cake with pear sorbet was a great way to cap off a meal, very fluffy, moist, and not overly sweet. I appreciated the birthday candle on the dessert, as I mentioned I was celebrating. Overall a great meal, just wish the staff were more hospitable.

One of the few places serving Alba truffle dishes. Good selection of authentic Italian dishes for every taste and palate. Excellent service. Can get a bit noisy because of intimate atmosphere. One of the best Italians in the city.

We had a wonderful birthday evening at Lupo. Moe our server was outstanding, extremely attentive without hovering. He gave recommendations and made a joke it was our lucky night when the corkscrew broke off in the cork while trying to open our wine. And to that extent he brought us a couple of extra glasses of wine at the end of the night so we could enjoy the quiet after the obnoxious table beside us left. Frankly they were the only reason why our night wasn't a "full" 5-star night. They were rude and loud, but fortunately left before we did.
Each course was delicious. My husband and I had 3 courses, so 6 different plates total and each was delicious. It's rare that we are both impressed with all courses.
As for Covid - protocol the restaurant was clean, the tables were spaced out, I saw no tables with more than 4 people, employees wore masks, when people left the tables and chairs were all cleaned. I did not feel unsafe.

Service was relatively good. Server was speaking too fast and with the noise around and his mask we barely caught up.
I sent them a note when I reserved for a special occasion request, and they totally forgot it

We had dinner very early on Saturday, we started with our regular martini that came just the way I like it,very cold, 3 olives. My husband and I usually like to sit and catch up with our first drink, the waiter was very respectful of our request to wait until we had a first drink before ordering.
We usually order bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, our server suggested another wine in the same price range, I always appreciate a suggestion to try something new and it did not disappoint. I now can go to a new isle at the liquor store.
We ordered all usual and tried some of the specials offered that evening, I can say we enjoyed every morsel, the food came hot, and delicious. My husband and I agreed that this was one of the better meals we have had in a long time, it hard to complain about perfect, we will be back.

The food from start to finish was so good. I rather enjoyed the Lamb Shank and the Fois gras. My husband ordered the Beef Rib Raviolli and the Mussels and thought they tasted amazing.
The severs were attentive and very kind. And the ambiance was rather romantic.
We are going back as often as possible.
