Lupa Osteria Midstream
It all started in March 2013. Founders Guy Cluver and Chris Black opened the first Lupa Osteria with General Manager Andre du Plessis in the small town of Hillcrest.
The Lupa in Hillcrest was a great success, so we decided to expand to Westville and Durban North. Once the third store was open and running, we joined The Famous Brands group in pursuit of further growth. At the end of 2016 we finally reached Johannesburg and opened up Lupa in Design Quarter, Fourways. In 2017 we opened another two stores in KZN, one in Ballito and one in Umhlanga. The next store due to open will be in Midstream Estate, this will be the 2nd in Gauteng and the 7th in the country. Further expansion for 2018 includes the first store in Cape Town and another in Bedfordview.
Lupa is a neighbourhood Osteria, where one feels comfortable enjoying a casual, affordable family dinner – this could include pizza and pasta with a carafe of house wine or shellfish, fresh fish and veal with corporate clients. We offer an inviting bar for a pre or post dinner cocktail or grab a pizza and a craft beer at a bar table. Pasta is homemade and pizza is wood fired using only imported Italian flour. Organic free range chickens and the finest veal we can source, will all add to an authentic Italian experience that we offer.
