This is a hidden gem! Looks a bit dark from the outside, but take the time to have a meal here! The marinara sauce is THE BEST! We have been going to this family-owned restaurant for nearly 2 years and have never had a bad meal. The staff is friendly and attentive and there is a good wine selection. The... More

This is an old fashioned family style restaurant. The gnocchi is fabulous as is the lobster ravioli.

Went here for dinner while in town on business based on the reviews. Although this was my second visit my first visit was many years ago so decided to go back since I couldn't recall my first visit. The bread was very thin and tasted store bought not home made, the minestrone soup was not overly tasty, spinach gnocchi was... More

We have been coming here since the sixties. The food, the service, the friendly feeling never disappoints. The family is very much involved with the day to day functioning of the restaurant. Cesare is very particular about the quality of his ingredients. I once saw him at our local produce market picking up a case of romaine. His salads are... More

At "Lupo's," virtually everything is homemade on the premises using the best chef-chosen ingredients, and with decades of knowledge and dedication to true regional Italian cooking. For instance, that basket of bread on your table is personally baked every day by the chef. Cesare ("Chez") is the owner/chef, and loves to pop out of the kitchen and walk the restaurant,... More

Great food, very much a family neighborhood restaurant. Owner is on premise, checking with patrons to measure satisfaction. I think this may be the most loaded Linguine Vignole (w/ Clams) I have EVER had. And it was delicious. Worth going to, Great Food, Great atmosphere, Great pricing.

Good reasonable Italian food and Salads/ soups are included with entree. The Italian house soup is delicious. Salads are fresh and they normally have a special on the menu which is unique. Beer and wine are reasonably priced and their is ample seating and good service.

This restaurant was recommended by a local while we were in town visiting. It's very unassuming and old school style Italian bistro-style. The food was fantastic!! Everything came out quickly and service was very courteous and attentive. I had calamari steaks that were out of this world. Would never think to order them, but waitress suggested it, and she was...
