Lupo Italian Kitchen Cranks Out Lots of Pasta


Lupo Italian Kitchen in downtown Rehoboth Beach recently put into production a pasta machine that can make more than 10 pounds of homemade pasta an hour.

To highlight Parks’ new menu, Lupo will extend the popular Wednesday Night Half Priced Pasta Night throughout the summer season.
