Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having lived in Italy and been on holidays there. Eating pizza in Australia is terrible. Until you go to this place, simply the best and other than everyone speaking English you would think you are in Italy. I’ve edited this post as it is now...absolutely terribleMore

Omg! New owners do not know what they are doing. My lasagne came out 20 minutes before my salad and chips. My family got their meals 30 minutes later. The middle of the lasagne was cold, chips were undercooked and Parmers looked like reheated chicken...with half melted cheese. Bitterly disappointed a I loved this restaurant. I’ll never return.More

We were treated appallingly by a male staff member he was incredibly arrogant and rude to us ladies and there were 5 of us. We were told we can no longer bring our own wine. We ordered the so called Yarra Valley Rose from the...menu but when it came to our table it had a dodgy label on it. It tasted like cheap watered down clean skin rose. The waitress told us the winery was having trouble with their labels to start with but then said oh actually no we cant get that wine. So she was unsure what we were drinking but we had to pay $26 for a bottle of crap. The pizzas were stingy with hardly any topping. We will never ever be back and such a shame as we are all local. Crappy Crappy service.More

Waiter was argumentative about temperature of wine. Gnocchi Napoli with buffalo cheese rather tasteless and poorly presented in rather small quantity. Our friend received an almost cold platter of gnocchi. Pizza was okay. On previous occasions we had a much better experience ; perhaps result...of new staff.More

We heard about La Lupa on a local page and subsequent reviews from friends and family. The venue has a great authentic vibe and you can smell the woodfire pizza a mile away. The restaurant was very dark though.... When we walked in, we weren't...greeted, we had to go to the front to ask where we would be seated. Staff were attentive and we were in an out within an hour and a half. We ordered the garlic & cheese foccacia to start, veal saltimbocca & gnocchi 4 cheese for main, creme brulee & cannoli for mains. We also ordered a couple of the kids meals. I couldn't fault my meal and really enjoyed everything - as did the kids. However, with the veal - they don't/hadn't removed the toothpicks holding everything together during the cooking process. They were so well hidden, my husband almost chocked! 🤦‍♀️ He did say his main was lacking flavor and seasoning, he also wasn't to wrapped up in all the chocolate powder all over the cannoli. We would definitely go back for pizza as a family.More

Have been fans of La Lupa Romana for years. The closest to Italian food that I've had outside of Italy! I have never had a bad experience there, regardless of dining in or ordering take away. Our latest experience saw us with a Rustica pizza,...which is off an older menu, but they obliged anyway. On top of that, the ragu was also amazing. Worth a visit.More

Food was good, but not much atmosphere. Felt like we were intruding on their family gathering. Service a bit lack lustre. Will try again maybe caught them omn a bad night.

Being a Sunday evening it was not as crowded as it was the last time we were here. The service and food were excellent as usual. The pizzas were authentic Italian and the bruschetta was delicious. Well worth the visit to a truely Italian joint...in the outer east if you are ever in this part of the city.More

Probably the nicest pizza I’ve ever had! Delicious pizza and garlic bread. BYO wine only - very busy little restaurant with a great atmosphere so make sure u book a table. Having said that I called on the day and they were very accommodating and...able to fit us in at short notice. I’m looking forward to going back again to try their pasta and tiramisu 😉More

We love coming here as a lot of locals do. By far the best wood fire pizza and quality pasta dishes for miles. Italians run the place, the food is great and the menu has imported Italian drinks. Looking forward to my next pizza already

Whilst the place was busy and had a good atmosphere, I found my meal was quite tasteless and dry. Others with me also had just an OK response to their meals. The the service was good, however our friend could not believe that the cook...advised the waiter that he could not have spaghetti as the pasta for the Tagliatelle A Ragu ! (I understand for it to be "genuine" its requires tagliatelle, but surely the customer has the right to select their preferences?)More

Go here regularly as it is local. Genuine Italian style pizza from the wood fire oven and amazing pastas. Great local beers on tap too. Best to reserve a table though especially on weekends. Can get very busy for good reason.

This restaurant always seems to be busy, which is usually a good indication of a quality venue. We made a booking the previous night and they were able to just squeeze us in (quite literally, our table was placed right at the payment counter!). The...staff were very friendly and the service was fast, despite the fact that all the tables were taken & there was a steady stream of takeaway customers. I ordered the salumi pizza. It was quite possibly the best pizza I have ever eaten & I have eaten a LOT of pizza in my time! I make my own salami & I have my own wood fired oven at home, but I have never made anything as good as this! Highly recommended.More
