La Lupa Ristorante & Pizzeria is the oldest and most well-loved Italian restaurant in Poole. It’s a family-run affair that has been in the game since 1978, and the quality of the food and the service has never, ever slipped. La Lupa is nestled in a wonderful little spot on The Poole Quay at The Old Mill, and there you’ll find traditionally made and authentic Italian pizza, fresh seafood dishes (this is the south coast), as well as main course options that will leave you glowing inside. This is not your run-of-the-mill Italian restaurant. Poole and even Bournemouth go crazy for La Lupa.
Booked in on New Years Eve with my wife and had a great time. Even though it was busy the waiters always had time to have a chat and laugh and the food was excellent. Will definitely go again when we're next down Poole.
One of our favourite restaurants with superb service and great food. Delicious scallops last night! Don’t miss this fantastic local restaurant
Professional but not too pushy. Food very nicely presented. Fish perfectly cooked. Generally very good experience. Would definitely repeat the visit and recommend La Lupa.
We received a wonderful welcome. Staff are excellent and the atmosphere jovial. We had a birthday meal and they made the birthday girl special. Highly recommended
Friendly staff from the moment we arrived. Food was excellent - We had calamari and stuffed mushrooms for starters, followed by calzone and parmigiana for mains. Beware- the portion sizes are huge! Reasonable prices and a good atmosphere made for a great evening.
It was a busy night in the restaurant with a very large party. Sadly this affected service, quality of food and pace that the food was served. At times we felt very rushed with starter and mains coming out too quickly to then being left for nearly an hour without drinks or an oppprtunity to ask for dessert menu. The food was ok but not on a par with a previous visit on a quieter night, will not be visiting again for a while.
Don't tell too many people, but it was great, been there quite a few times and each time they have different things on the 'specials' board. You really do need to book as they have large parties sometimes. Best Spaghetti in Poole.
Not been here for many years but what a good evening! Food was fabulous, great tasting and nicely presented and the staff were excellent and very attentive 😀 Go again? Most definitely. Not a busy evening but still plenty of atmosphere
This is a real Italian Restaurant unlike the plastic ones on every High Street. Excellent staff, good beer and wine, super food and we finished off with a superb zabaglione which you only ever find in a proper Italian Restaurant.
Great food, great service. Only downside was there was no specific children's menu (I am not suggesting chicken nuggets etc) though they happily did a half portion on request it would have helped if they had made this more clear.
