La Lupa

La Lupa Restaurant Poole


For a real taste of Italy, a visit to La Lupa Ristorante & Pizzeria is a must! 

This authentic, family run Italian restaurant is positioned in an historic Poole Quay mill and is the oldest Italian restaurant in Poole, serving great, quality food since 1978.  

Located in a prime position on Poole Quay, slightly set back from the main busy tourist area, the ambience is a cosy, traditional setting offering a first class service from friendly, attentive staff. 

The menu is extensive, offering a hearty portion of all the traditional Italian favourites such as freshly prepared pizza and pasta dishes.  This is complemented by daily seafood options which have been locally sourced and delivered daily. Make sure you leave room for some dessert, as the menu is too good to resist!

Families are made to feel welcome at the restaurant, with anything on the menu available in a smaller portion. La Lupa can cater for private evenings, group bookings with friends or larger events & special occasions with seating for 140 and free to hire.

Awarded a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence, there is every reason to go and see what everyone is talking about……
