Reservations at Lupa?
Do you need to make reservations at Lupa the same way as at Babbo, one month in advance, or is it easier?
It's the same but they seem to hold a lot more tables for walk-ins. They are also better about reminding people of this when they call. I have never waited more than 45 minutes for a table there and they do serve the full menu at the bar. Enjoy!
I've only been to Lupa once, for lunch, but my wife and I walked in two weeks ago on a Saturday without reservations. We were told it would be about a 45 minute wait. We went to kill time with a walk around the neighborhood, and were told to check back in 20 minutes. So we did just that and the table was ready for us. It may be a bit more difficult at dinner, perhaps? The food was great by the way.
I've made reservations for weekend lunches the day before or just a couple of hours ahead of time w/o a problem.
I was just told to show up early as a walk-in when I tried to make reservations for 3 weeks out. I'll probably just go for lunch instead.
i've been able to make day-of dinner reservations several times for early (6.30/7) weeknight meals.
