    I use to come to this place and it was great, but its really gone downhill. The place needs to be cleaned, and some basic repairs need to be done (stickers on the booth upholstery to cover tears?). The food was terrible. We got the carbonara, which tasted more like butter sauce; no sign of cheese or egg. The spaghetti and meatball had a red sauce that was watery and flavorless. Even the wine that used to make me think of this place as a wine bar, was down to just a few basics. Not good. I won't be back until I hear that its gone through a major overhaul on the space and the food.

    What a disappointment having been there so many times years before. Food is atrocious with some items not available due to no customers attending. Basically meat balls were just warmed up with no taste. Entrees were acceptable. Poor wine list. Staff are friendly but overall it is not recommended. We will not be returning.

    Took off a favorite plate from the menu yet it’s not updated on their website or this app either. The waiter said he’ll check if they would still make it which I appreciated it but they said no. I ordered the bolognese and then the server said they didn’t have the correct pasta but can still make it. So I just ordered the basic spaghetti and meatballs. Overall not even worth coming here, back in 2021 it was such a great experience now I know why this restaurant has a low rating. Not worth eating here or the price for the basic dishes.

    Worst experience ever! We ordered a pizza for our kid : marguerita: we told them we want half with tomato sauce and half with tomate sauce and cheese… we got a pizza with cheese ( no tomate sauce) like dough and cheese, we told the waitress no we said half no cheese and half with cheese… they made another pizza half with nothing and half with cheese, we were like : where is the tomato sauce??!! They said we dont make pizza with tomato sauce?? WTF, why you are mentioning the ingredient pomodoro on the menu???!!! We were really upset , my kid had to wait for an hour without eating, and we left !!! DO NOT GO THERE!! It is overpriced and the food was so so

    We’ve eaten at Il Lupino a few times but this was not a good visit. Being vegan, we had been accommodated with the chef preparing a pasta dish for our needs. No vegan pasta. Waiter brings out appetizers with cheese on them even though we told him no cheese. Not a positive experience but it may have just been a bad night for the restaurant.

    We had a reservation to sit inside & were promptly seated. While walking to the table, we commented to each other that it was warm but figured it was because we just came in from outside. We sat, ordered wine and while waiting, said it was still hot. We asked our server if they could turn on the air conditioner and she said no because the window was open! We canceled the wine order and walked out.

    Food was average at best. I had the margherita pizza and my husband had the spaghetti and meatball. Mine was okay, nothing spectacular. His needed more sauce and the singular large meatball was mushy and rubbery once he cut into it. Wouldn’t recommend.
