Loved it!! Husband is picky about his Italian food, and he concurs! Had the house made fettuccine with porcini and truffle...delicious! Shared a salad of shaved fennel and blood oranges which was very fresh and refreshing. Finished with tiramisu that was light satisfying. Waitstaff was cordial and attentive and quick! Will return next time we're in SF!

A group of 6 of us selected this restaurant for our New Year's Eve dinner. We were visiting from Seattle. We were pleasantly surprised with everything about Lupa Trattoria! The atmosphere was warm and friendly even how busy they were for the holiday. The service was fantastic -never did we feel rushed and they were super friendly. The menu was... More

We hadn't been back to Lupa Trattoria for a year, and are so glad we went back! You are greated by a welcoming fire at the entry (nice on a cold night), as well as the owner, who seats you, and checks on you during the meal. It is a small, unassuming place, always packed with people from the neighborhood.... More

I've been here a few times and always been impressed by the food - the pappardelle with lamb bolognese is possibly my daughter's favorite meal, and she is a very fussy eater. I'm a big fan of the tortelloni alla cardinale. The service is good, the wine list is reasonably priced, all in all a great neighborhood restaurant.

After my second time dining at Lupa Trattoria, I felt it was only right to share my positive review about this spot in Noe Valley with fellow foodies. Long-story-short, Lupa represents dining as it should be -- excellent food served by true professionals. From the owner greeting us as we arrived to the professionalism by the staff throughout the dining... More

Sometimes a bit heavy on the salt shaker, but always delicious. Fresh pastas, hearty meals, warm atmosphere. The bread and soup alone are worth visiting....but don't stop there because you'll miss out on so many delicious flavors. Wine list is decent. Game dishes are my favorites.

Lupa is my favorite Italian restaurant. Now that I am gluten free, I still crave their lamb meat sauce. On this past occasion they were able to accommodate me and put the lamb sauce on a nice bed of Asparagus. Not to say I didn't try a small bit of my friends Parpadelle (YUM). My girlfriend and I also shared... More

We have eaten and celebrated birthdays here many times and do not tire eating here. Our favorite is the pasta with mushrooms and lemon dessert.

My family of five spent one hour and fifteen minutes having dinner at Lupa trattoria. Apparently that was too long of a stay. We were asked to leave in a loud and rude manner. We spent over $400 and we were thrown out!! We told the manager we are not coming back, to which he replied " don't come back".... More

Located on 24th Street just north of Castro St, is this quaint, cosy and warm Italian restaurant. The Roman she-wolf nursing infants Romulus and Remus, fabled founders of the Eternal City, tell you that you're in for Roman style Italian. And so it is. The wait staff (Italian gents who've been living here some years) are all excellent and attentive.... More
