I hosted a birthday party for 34 people at Lupa Osteria in Westville on 25/8/18. I cannot praise this restaurant enough. The venue was beautifully set out to accommodate our group, and it felt private although the rest of the place was packed. Three waiters attended to us and did their work excellently. We were given a menu offering choice of six main courses and three desserts. Starters were antipasto platters placed at intervals along the tables. Everyone raved about the food, with a guest who is a chef saying it was the best steak he had ever eaten. This is my favourite restaurant in Durban, and they will always be my choice, whether it is a meal for a friend and I, or for a large party. Well done Leon and Colleen.

We had a business dinner here and were located in one of the wine cellars which is a must. The menu selection caters for all tastes. I had a steak which was Devine and the wine we selected was superb

Have you tried the whole baked camembert? This is now our family's favourite. It is wrapped in "real" parma ham, caramelised onions and is served with toasted bruschetta. There is really no need to write any more, because Lupa, Westville's food is always amazing.
We love the Sophie Bear Pizza as well as the Con Pollo Pasta and we shared both, so as to get the best of Lupa's favourites.
We ended off with a chocolate o' decadent (how ever you spell it). If there is going to be chocolate pud in heaven, I hope that is waiting for me. You will not be the same after you have tried it.
The owner and his wife are attentive to customers' needs and always provide the best dining experience for their customers. They handle all queries and make every customer feel important.
They are are knowledgeable and friendly. We have gained so much knowledge from their amazing meals.
The people at the table next to us were having the cheese wheel.... another one to think about next time.
We also watch the footy there and are glad that the REDS are winning.
We will also watch the rugby there .....so whichever sport you watch, be sure that your dining experience will be happy and memorable.
Thanks for the lovely food.......
