Having wandered Lincoln looking for a good place for dinner we decided to try La Lupa di Roma. All went well until the food arrived. My linguini with shrimp in tomato sauce arrived wtih 3 giant whole shrimp, heads, tails and shells intact. I asked the waiter if he could have the kitchen shell the shrimp which took 3 waiters to understand what I wanted. When it came back the dish tasted as though anchovy juice had been poured through it - it was so pungent , disgusting and strong it was inedible. My partner had the gnocchi which we were assured was one of their best dishes. The gnocchi varied from undercooked and floury to quite hard. No one checked on us throughout the meal. When they came to clear I very nicely and apologetically let them know I couldn't eat the dish. They had conniptions and called over the owner who - get this - TOOK MY FORK AND ATE OFF MY PLATE!! She then yelled at me saying it was my fault as I had sprinkled parmesan cheese on the dish! She eventually stormed off from the table, not offering another dish nor an apology, slammed the check down and stormed off again. None of the waiters would even look at us after that let alone speak to us. We even walked the check to the waiter rather than leave cash on the table and he bade us farewell with a prize winning scowl. There are too many great places to eat on South Beach to bother with this one. The food was horrible and the attitude of the owner was just plain rude.
Pros: Nice outdoor setting
Cons: Food, service, attitude of owner stinks
