An Italian Restaurant Designed for You

While growing up and traveling through Europe, Wolfgang Zweiner found his passion for authentic Italian dining. Sampling all the country had to offer during his time there, his dream became to open an Italian restaurant of his own, and in 2010, that dream came true with Il Lupino Trattoria—affectionately titled after the nickname “little wolf,” which Wolfgang garnered for his ravenous appetite while in Italy.

Our luxurious dining room features lush leather banquettes and dark maple accents, all complemented with fine white linen.
