La Lupa opened in Stalybridge at the end of 2008. Patrons Renato and Giuseppe hail originally from Italy's Campagna region but Giuseppe lived and worked in Rome as a chef where most of his influences are from and indeed so is the name (La Lupa di Roma is the she-wolf who according to legend suckled Romulus and Remus and is the mascot of the City of Rome). He has worked in Manchester for the last 40 years while Renato ran Firenze Restaurant in Glossop for 12 years where Giuseppe was chef for a time. It's an all-Italian menu with everything cooked freshly to order with a choice between the a la carte and the weekly-changing specials board. If there is something that you fancy which is not on the menu, Giuseppe will be happy to cook it for you. House specialities include Sea bass Alla Lupa, the vegetarian Penne Siciliana and Costolette di Maiale, spare pork ribs in a tasty and unique Italian sauce. The wine list is all Italian and the atmosphere warm and inviting, just as you would expect from a family-run Italian.
