What to order at Lupa

Going for the first time—just two of us for dinner. What should we order?

  1. Trout with roasted pears and radicchio. The date dessert. If it wasn't so noisy and was easier to get a reservation we might go more often.

    1. Bucatini. Yum. I would also go heavy on the antipasti. They're always delicious. Enjoy!

      1. I would not do the tripe, I found it ordinary. If they happen to have orichette sweet sausage and brochilli rabe as a special, get that. It was awesome.

        1. Don't order the hunk of pork shoulder with the weird rose petal glassato that looks like a turd on a plate.

          1. Head cheese (testa), tripe, octopus, gnocchi, amatriciana, saltimbocca, trout, duck(only on tuesday, I think), tartufo.

              rrems, how was your trout prepared? We had the trout with roasted pears and radicchio . . . so good.

                I can't recall, but I don't think it was with pears, just remember it being very good.
