LUPA Osteria is a bustling Italian restaurant serving authentic food in a warm and inviting setting . Whether you want a delicious bowl of pasta on a random Tuesday, country fresh salad, wood-oven baked pizza or a big celebration dinner with friends, LUPA offers all this and more.

We pride ourselves in staying true to our Italian roots and in keeping traditional Roman cuisine alive. Each Lupa has a designated pasta making & drying room where our fresh pasta is hand-made daily. A wood fired pizza oven is used for truly authentic pizzas and for baking many other traditional dishes for that extra flavour and authenticity.

Our wines list is extensive and offers a great selection of local and imported wine, beer and spirits to accompany your food or have a beautiful cocktail at aperitivo hour!

Benvenuto!

    Decided to take a drive to Ballito, away from our Umhlanga Lupa that we always visit. Lupa in Ballito was disappointing. Lacks the ambience, food not exciting - same menu as others but food tastes and looks different. Waitress service mediocre. Will not be going back and wished we had gone next door after all.

    the service is quite mediocre, the waiters aren’t that friendly. I’ve been to lupa over 5 times because the food is great but everytime i’m there the service is just not up to standard. The waiters won’t come assist for long and when they do they just throw the food on the table.

    Although we live closer to Umhlanga, we prefer the Ballito branch, exellent service and the food never disappoints.
