Stopped after a Robben Island tour wondering how it would be given the location- apps, salads and wine. GREAT service, the Italian nachos and meatballs were fantastic. (Best Italian since we’ve been in Cape Town). Nice surprise!

Food:
Melanzane Parmigiana - starter portion to share. Strong parmesan. Just enough garlic. Aubergine cooked well. Fantastic! More please. R58.

Fettucini Alfredo - Good volume and flavour. R100

Porcini Panzerotti - The star of the show. Superb flavours and good volume. R130.

Americano con latte for two. R40 Each. (The decaf costs an extra R8.)

Service:
Staff are friendly although a little inexperienced. They try very hard and understand what is expected of them. This will stand them in good stead.

The Manager is friendly and approachable. Staff seem to enjoy him as well.

Ambience:
Nicely kitted out.
Quite busy on a Thursday evening.
Husband was happy with the Italian rossa beer.

We will definitely go back again.

I will pop in for that starter at lunch time.

We had lunch at Lupa Osteria yesterday & it was a great experience. We were a group of 4 adults and 3 children and everybody had a fantastic meal. We were given a complimentary limoncello when we sat down which is made by the restaurant and it was very tasty. Our waiter Joshua was attentive, friendly and professional. Wayne helped him & he was also very friendly & professional. All the staff were great. Marco and Michelle, the owners, were both at the restaurant and took time out to come and chat to us. 2 of our group (including me) had the tiger prawn pasta which was an incredible dish - one of the best pasta dishes I have had in Cape Town. The burger was very tasty as well as the pasta pesto. The children had the kids pasta and all of them finished their meals and said it was great. The bread sticks were a very nice touch and we ordered some more. There is a play area for children just outside the restaurant which is visible from the restaurant. The meal was very reasonably priced, including the wine. We will definitely be back.
