The server realized that we were bothered by noisy group so they moved us to a quieter table on different floor. The appetizers are stunning, grilled octopus and foie gras are must to try. The mushroom taglierini is packed with texture and flavour. The agnolotti is so tasty and the sauce is luscious. The prime rib was pefectly cooked with such complex sauce. We also appreciate some extra that we get to celebrate birthday. We’ll definitely go back there soon

Our server (we didn't get her name) was attentive but not overbearing. She made us feel very welcome and looked-after, and her little anniversary touch at the end of meal topped off a delightful dining experience. We would certainly dine here again. By the way, try the ravioli. I actually had seconds. It was that good.

We were sandwiched between two big party groups. Could barely talk at first! However, after a big part group left, we were able to hold normal conversation without having to talk very loud! I can see that the front end of room with smaller tables would be better for parties of three or four!

Today, Lupo served a special seasonal dish of spot prawns (for the first time that I’ve been aware of). I love spot prawns and I’ve eaten them many times before, but this was the best they have ever tasted. They were juicy and perfectly blended with garlic. As always, the staff at Lupo made my wife and me feel like we were the most important people at Lupo. Our dinner was perfect!

Tried the Pinot Nero red wine and it was very smooth and fantastic. The romain Cesar salad, wagyu beef carpaccio and lamb was superb! Definitely would return, our waiter Matt was very attentive and made really great recommendations.

We always have the burrata appetizer which never disappoints. My husband had the pasta special with a tomato sauce and sausage. I tasted it and wished I had ordered it. I ordered the veal chop special which did not disappoint. So tender and juicy. Topped off with the Grand Marnier cheesecake which was the dessert special. Again a winner. Thank you Lupo for always making a special evening memorable and delectable. See you soon

And we loved all the food - meatballs, salad etc. The service was good but not spectacular, it took a really long time to clear our dishes and in fact all our main plates were still there when we left, despite our dessert being served as well. The waiter also told us that he preferred we order our appetizer and main together, even though we wanted to still decide on mains but wanted to get started on nibbling. He just was a bit rigid. But super attentive and very very nice . I think they were just super busy. All in all, I would come here again and again. Absolutely loved the ambiance, the wine list and the food!

I had my wife's birthday dinner, I ordered quite bit of dishes for two people. Two appetizers, one pasta, two mains and two deserts. It was very filling, and the waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. I and my wife want to go back for simple pasta dinner soon.

Before finishing the food on our plate, the server was already taking it away. We initially ordered one salad to share, then were convinced to share another one, plus were offered focaccia bread that did not end up being free of charge. This is too bad as we were really looking forward to dining here. The quality of the food tasted good, but the pasta was very heavy.
