Lupino Italian bistro is the real deal. If their uncanny ability to provide exceptional service in such a relaxed atmosphere isn't enough to hook you in, there is also the exceptional food from the small menu focused on Italian favourites.
Try the eggplant parmigiana, the risotto or the margherita pizza. The gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce is a hedonistic delight, as is the osso bucco.
Stop in for hearty portions, handmade pastas and breads, and a warm and inviting atmosphere at the top end of the city.
