This much-hyped trattorria sure packs ‘em in. The frenetic pace—of the staff, the bar, the adjacent table just off your elbow—are further aggravated by a solid layer of techno. Knowledgeable staff brings fantastic wines from a manageable list, but overall the food proves uneven. An orecchiette with greens and sausage packs a rich, spicy punch, but the ricotta gnocchi can be overcooked. A silky smooth panna cotta is worth the visit, while both the saltimbocca and pork shoulder can be heavy handed. Is Lupa resting on it’s laurels a bit early?
