Lupo is our go-to spot for special occasions and will be for years to come. This place never disappoints in service, food quality, or experience. Every single staff member should be given high praise for their consistency. The server tonight remembered us from over 6 months ago when we were last here! Makes the experience that much better. Well done Lupo!

Everything was delicious but I highly recommend both the Focaccia side and the Fois Gras appetiser. My only regret was not trying out one of their delicious looking desserts because the appetisers and pasta dish made me too full.

The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We were a trio of friends getting together with lots to talk about and the atmosphere was very congenial and seating accommodated easy conversation. We were off to a concert after and they were able to get us on our way with plenty of time. We had the special appetizer and pasta dish of the day and both were superb!

Scene: Quaint heritage house renovated to be a restaurant. A long flight of stairs takes you to the front door, so make note. Modern décor/interior juxtaposed with heritage feel. Calm, but energized ambiance - date suitable, but still family friendly enough for well behaved young children.

Food: Up to high standards as always ( 3 for 3 visits). No free bread before the meal, so you are warned. If you want bread, you need to order it ($4/$6). The menu is divided into Antipasti, Primi and Secondi, but they don't actually expect you to order all 3. What they call Primi are pasta dishes, and Secondi are meat based dishes. I like to order the burrata antipasti if they have it, and anything with truffle in it for my main. Good selection of dessert - they have something for almost everyone (I don't like chocolate and am mildly lactose intolerant).

Service: Professional and courteous. Courses are spaced out, i.e. take a while to come out, so don't come if you are in a hurry. Dinner here is to be savoured, enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Allow 2 hours as a bare minimum. 2.5 hours is comfortable. If you are also having drinks, 3 hours.

This place is now a mainstay as a fancy go-to for birthdays, Mother's/Father's Day, etc.

Lupo never disappoints, and the combo of fresh ingredients and a great chef always produces a wonderful dinner. By far, one of the top 3 Italian restaurants in Vancouver.

We arrived to serving staff who'd hoisted in the fact we were attending a show later in the evening. Our server was attentive, provided great advice about ordering so that we would be on time, and ensured we had fun, had enough time to enjoy the delicious food, and left in plenty of time for the show.

Service was impeccable. Melanie was very knowledgeable and personable. Great suggestions and we never had to ask for anything twice. Food was beyond amazing! I had the Roasted Local Quail with gnocchi. Melt in your mouth and a perfect balance of flavor - truffle flavor was prominent without being overbearing. My husband had the halibut and prawns and was equally satisfied. Suggestion for the focaccia bread and the featured starter was on point!

Erratic Service with some food items not served as per the servers intial table-side description. we had to ask before it was changed to match the original description (Jumbo prawns were substituted with regular shrimp).
Service was a tad on the slow side...

Excellent service in a refreshingly spacious yet cozy environment with a modest noise level. Food quality was very great, presentation excellent, servings healthy but not excessive. Fairly expensive but then you get what you pay for...
We were off to a concert and were obliged with well timed but not rushed and very friendly service! Highly recommended for a special evening!!

We were fortunate to dine on the main floor as a previous evening we were upstairs and it was very noisy. One hard surface bouncing off another hard surface. In every other aspect the restaurant is a gem.

Lovely room, but VERY LOUD. Would be quite romantic if you were (already) hard of hearing.
Food was good to very good. (although I ordered lamb medium-rare and it was quite rare indeed - portion was large, so I just ate around it). Service excellent, even though the place was packed.

Lupo never disappoints!
The food is reliably good here, with nicely crafted specials and great attention to detail.
Service is professional and friendly, and at Lupo they don't try and rush you out the door in two hours or less.
