The only disappointment of the meal was the pasta carbonara. While the presentation was lovely, and the flavors and ingredients were all there, the consistency of the egg was a bit too chunky and scrambled for my liking. It was hard to twirl the pasta given the thickness, and I prefer a runny yolk with more of a sauce-like texture. I look forward to trying some of the other pasta dishes on my next visit to Lupo Verde such as the maltagliati alla norma with ricotta, eggplant, and cherry tomato. In addition to the items we ordered, the menu also offers pizzas and other brunch options including an Italian french toast, crepes, and a classic steak and eggs. Finally, Lupo Verde's beverage director Francesco Amodeo has created five specialty cocktails to be enjoyed with the brunch items in addition to offering their full wine and beer list.
This past weekend was a fun time to be at Lupo Verde as they were showing the World Cup games on their televisions at both the downstairs and upstairs bars. It's a small restaurant, but the design and architecture is stunning, and the food quality is impressive. I can guarantee you'll find me at restaurant snacking on meat and cheese again very soon. Brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday between 10AM - 3PM.
