How about a ramp for people with mobility issues? Realize you are in a house, but you will lose a lot of people on cold days, when they cannot sit outside.

Service was great, attentive and friendly. For the appetizer we had the charcuterie, burrata, and meatballs which all were fantastic. Entrees were average at best, and our dishes were all lukewarm or cold which was disappointing.

We enjoyed our dinner at Lupo Verde Osteria. The food was delicious, as were the wine and cocktails. Our server was good, however dessert took an unusally long time to come out, and we learned (after waiting close to 30 minutes) that the desserts we ordered were actually not available. The substitutes were still tasty, though, so not the end of the world. Would recommend the eggplant parm and any of the pasta dishes--they don't disappoint.

Our dine-in experience to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary was wonderful. The food was so delicious and you know that it's cooked with fresh ingredients. Maya and Marina were very kind and accommodating to our requests. We will surely go back and invite friends too! Thank you Lupo Verde!!!

Although I rated the noise level as energetic, nearly all of it came from a table of five women who were drinking and shrieking at every joke. The food was excellent, and the service outstanding. We have been to some restaurants recently where poor swervice has been blamed on short staffing. Here all of the staff cooperated so that patrons had someone come when needed, while the maitre d' kept tabs on everything. Certainly a place to go back to.

The eggplant parmesan was the best I have ever had--perfect combination well-fried eggplant with just the right amount of sauce and cheese, served with a small side of spaghetti--I hope it becomes a staple on the menu!

It seems they’ve changed wait staff in the few months or maybe they were just off that night. No orders were wrong or forgotten but drinks and refills or water/non alcoholic did take some time.

Having dined here before we knew just about everything we wanted to order. However maybe since we did we weren’t told any specials etc. I was convinced our server was a back server or supporting server since they never even told us their name or welcome in etc.

However, the food and ambience cannot be beat. We will be back. Service can be polished up a bit to truly elevate the experience.

Very slow service even tho the restaurant was not crowded. But our server was very helpful in finding us a suitable and moderately priced wine.
Specifics about food : excellent salads can’t go wrong with arugula. And wonderful desserts. Classic tiramisu, first rate gelatos and a bombolino That could have served more than one. In fact, all servings were very ample. What was disappointing were grotto misto. Overcooked and not hot and crisp.

We had a nice dinner here last night, very tasty. We would go back The hostess/manger, Katerena, was great, called ahead of time to improve the reservation we found on open table.

The menu on Open Table, upon which we based our decision, both for tastes and cost, was substantially different from the menus presented at the restaurant. The cost were more when in the restaurant.

The accoustics in the front room upstairs need much improvement, we were a table of six and could not hear across the table, the adjacent table was having a good time.

When asked for recommendations, the server did not hesitate to suggest the most expensive items.

But my main negative issue was the other manager, a gentleman, that as 18 or so people, 3 tables, were enjoying the end of dinner, ASKED all to leave so he could sent the staff home. Very bizarre
