This is our once a month dining place. It was to our disappointment that the food went downhill. The steak ordered was over cooked. The new manager explained ‘the edges are usually more cooked’ like no one knew how to cook. He later on offered a rib eye but the quality is low. Even my 10 year old kid said the spaghetti was less tasty as before regardless they claimed the chef was the same.

This cozy little gem serves up haute yet unpretentious food. Great for a date.

We went to Lupo for our 10th Anniversary meal whilst visiting from England. I read a review of the restaurant months ago at home and decided this was the place to book for our special day, so we were looking forward to it very much. We simply loved our dining experience there. The menu was mouth-watering, so it was deliciously hard to choose, but nothing disappointed and we loved every mouthful and enjoyed some gorgeous wine as well. The service was exceptional. The welcome was comfortable and relaxing. Throughout they made us feel special without being over the top, and they gave us a gorgeous little cake with a candle alongside our desserts! The ambiance was busy, stylish and friendly. Just perfect.

The food was excellent as was the service. Unfortunately, the restaurant has absolutely no provisions for managing the noise level. Wood floors, open concept, no drapes or room dividers. On top of that we were seated next to a very loud table of six. When I complained there was no offer to move us. A very unpleasant dining experience.

Returned to Lupo after quite some time away. Service was excellent and our server knew the features very well. The upstairs room where we were seated was loud but it's a small room so that was expected. One person in our party was vegan and a pasta with vegan ingredients was suggested and enjoyed. Will be back, we shouldn't have stayed away so long.........

Lovely and cute atmosphere. Great ambiance and decor. Loved it! Highly recommended if you were to bring a date or celebrate a special occasion! We had their truffle fettuccini and shared some appies and wine. Soooo good. Must try.

Highly recommend for the food, atmosphere and ambiance. My wife waited a few minutes to be acknowledged until the lady who ended up being our server finally said hello and asked how she can be helped?? Well, we are here for a diner reservation...anyways, the only positive from her were her recommendations but outside of that she was unfriendly, abrupt and didn't represent the other attributes this restaurant exemplifies.

Quaint, charming house. Excellent service and food (beautiful octopus mosaic, perfect sable fish, delicious lemon semifreddo). So good that I was tempted to go back but, in a 3-night trip, I felt I should explore other options.

The restaurant is an old home that sits above the street. Service was outstanding from start to finish. Started with burrata, tomatoes, and truffles. Finished with pasta with truffles. Outstanding. Highly recommend

The black truffle pasta, linguine nero, tiramisu were great. The black truffle pasta was especially heaven. The lamb shank was a bit salty. Julie's service was impeccable and very attentive. My third time to Lupo. Will come again, and recommend to friends.

Lupo delivered an incredible dining experience for my husband and I. The food was excellent but it was the very attentive service that really was impressive. The staff created an amazingly seamless dining experience for us- and even gave us a delicious after dinner drink when they found out it was my husband’s birthday. I will definitely return and would highly recommend this restaurant for delicious Italian food.

Incredible rude and very noisy people seated at the table next to us. How the staff can accept this in a restaurant that is supposed to be quiet and classy, I don't understand. Profit comes before client comfort here...

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.
