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.
Superb as ever , we have been going there since 1978 , but I had not been for a year or so. Little changes which is nice just consistently good food and service.
Another wonderful meal with great pasta and a delicious cheesecake to follow. You always get a very warm welcome here. There are always some delicious specials available, especially fish dishes. Don’t miss this restaurant!
The staff were very friendly and the food was fantastic. A great place for a romantic dinner with the place being so cozy. Would recommend.
As ever a wonderful meal with great service. The food is always of a really high standard, freshly cooked and delicious. The atmosphere is always great thanks to the very friendly staff.
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.
It is always special eating here as the food and service are wonderful. Last night I had the most delicious sardines I have had for years. They really make an effort and one customer was seranaded for his birthday. Don’t miss this restaurant
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.
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.
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.
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
