First Look: Lupo Verde

By Mitch Lee Payusan

Plaudits: None

With permitting issues and all other obstacles safely out of the way (fingers crossed), the rustic Italian spot is now set to open Monday, serving wood-fired pizzas, housemade pastas and breads, whole roasted fish and small plates crafted by executive chef Orlando Amaro and chef de cuisine Domenico Apollaro.
