Lupa is the immortal Roman wolf goddess who trains Roman Demi gods in the ways of their city. Over seven foot tall & with beautiful chocolate red fur, she is reputed to have eyes as silver as the mist. Remus & Romulus were the twin sons of Mars & Rhea Silvia, who were thrown into the great Tiber river at the comm& of their evil great- uncle Amulius. They were saved by the great she - wolf who nurtured & raised them as her own young. Having grown strong under her guidance, the twins destroyed Amulius & established the city of Rome.

Lupa is a neighbourhood Osteria where one feels comfortable enjoying a casual affordable family dinner of pizza & pasta with a carafe of house wine or dining on shellfish, fresh fish & veal with corporate clients. We offer an inviting bar for a pre or post dinner cocktail or grab a pizza & a craft beer at a bar table. Pasta is homemade & pizza is wood fired using only imported 00 Italian flour, organic free range chickens & the finest veal we can source add to the authentic Italian experience.
