Tried Lupa for the first time today, and what a pleasant surprise! Wonderful, typical Italian menu, quite a good wine list (with very well priced wines) and Prosecco on tap! Staff really friendly and helpful. Well worth a re-visit. Pity ,though, that they don't do breakfast.

It offers a reasonable menu covering pasta, pizza, salads, fish, lamb and veal. The wine list is comprehensive enough, just the usual lack of good wine by the glass - a Johannesburg challenge. I ordered 2 starters - the beef carpaccio was a meal in itself - very good except for lots of little blobs of what I considered to be sub-standard mayonnaise - it tasted much better without it. Also had the calamari which was unfortunately ice cold. Let it go as it was a hot day. Service was excellent but they do need to supply outside diners with fly repellent candles

My 4 year old was so impressed he had to thank me repeatedly. Despite ordering his own spaghetti he couldn't resist trying the Italian nacho's and eating half of my zuchinni fries (which are why I went back again as they are to die for - light and fluffy and yummy...). I also had the calamari for a 2nd time and it was incredible. Hubby had calzone but said it lacked flavour and was too small for his liking.

Had a late lunch and was really impressed. Unique, mouthwatering pizzas and delicious pastas on the menu. Italian beer also on offer.

Decided last minute to have a meal with a old friend who happened to be in Johannesburg. Service was exceptional to the point that we were inundated with management and the waiter checking if everything was ok. Food was exceptional. Veal with Mozzarella and parma Ham a must! Calamari starters were also great!!
