Italian
La Masseria Restaurant is inspired from ancient fortified farmhouses that in the Puglia Region of Italy are called “Masseria”. Executive Chef/Co-Owner, Pino Coladonato, grew up on a Farm in Puglia. He was forced to eat whatever was available but soon was tired of bean puree and decided to take matters into his own hands, creating new ways to use the same few ingredients. Now, with limitless ingredients to choose from, fava beans, chickpeas and lentils are still a core element in many of his entrees. Interior Designer Libby Langdon has created a warm, inviting dining atmosphere. Rustic and relaxed, with plenty of old world charm. Oversize iron sconces custom made from antique wrought iron gates punctuate the walls, and artful displays of antique farm tools mixed with various authentic Italian photographs all add to the farmhouse appeal. The 250-bottle wine list encompasses all regions of Italy with few of the best American and the rest of the world.

    Excellent food and service. The halibut was flavorful and the mozzarella appetizer was very good. The pasta bolognese was excellent too. Good bread. The only complaint was the music being piped in had an obnoxious euro beat and didn’t suit the feel of a farmhouse in Italy. The prices were also rather expensive. $44 for the halibut seemed really too much etc.

    Delicious food! Fantastic service! Pasta dishes were served with perfect amount of sauce (not dry), charcuterie type foods were fresh & of high quality. Highly recommend the Guidoalberto Toscana red wine, Schiaffoni Al Ravi’ Di Tracchiole, chocolate almond flour cake, tiramisu. True Italian experience.

    I recommend La Masseria for its location (to the Longacre Theater!) and for its comfort and low noise level. I do not recommend the food! Some friends (at 2 other tables) found the food "okay"; my companion had a nice looking whole artichoke with parmesan and pistachios, but my "risotto" was abominable. A true disgrace to the name "risotto." When I inquired if there was time enough, pre-theater, for a risotto I was assured yes, "we have our way to do it." Risotto MUST be made to order! I was served a humongous mound –– a virtual mountain rising well above the bowl –– of white stuff. Not a kernel of rice to be detected. Just white mush, totally cold and tasteless. It might as well have been leftover mashed potatoes. The staff is not Italian; neither was my dish.

    We got there after a Broadway show, almost lost our reservation, but they were nice enough to let us dine with a limited menu, due to the time. Still, we had a great family time, great service and food was delicious. We truly appreciate the effort and understanding. Have a great holiday season! 🎄🎄❤️❤️

    Has always been a great spot for before and after seeing a show. The food this time was superb, however our particular waiter was very arrogant which was a turn off. Will still continue to frequent this wonderful place, however we will ask for another server next time.

    Perhaps the kitchen staff were in rush because of how much the restaurant was packed but our linguine vongole and rabbit were not fully done. The appetizers were excellent though. The service was good although we had to ask for bread and later for milk for coffee. One thing we noticed is the hostess who looked grimmer than a rain cloud in a thunderstorm. Given that hers is the first face one sees upon entering the restaurant, I wasn't sure whether to offer her my shoulder or my business card. This is our second visit to La Masseria and we definitely prefer their other location.

    We arrived for our 10:45 reservation and were immediately seated and given a wine list and water. Then our waiter disappeared. We asked the host if we had a server and if so could he find him as we sat for 15 minutes without anyone asking to take our drink order. When the host found our server in the kitchen and sent him to our table he had such a bad attitude we decided to leave. We explained our feelings to the host. We have dined many times at the restaurant and this is our first disappointing experience.

    We always dine at La Masseria when we visit the city. It’s consistently good. We were there on Saturday for lunch. There were 4 of us. We started with the burrata special and friend zucchini appetizers. Plenty for four people. We then had three pasta dishes and the veal piccata. Finished with a chocolate almond cake. They also had a reasonable wine list. We had a delicious bottle of Chianti. The restaurant isn’t cheap. The bill was 280 dollars before tip. I was just a little surprised at price of the burrata appetizer, which was 38 dollars. They should mention that when reciting the specials. But it was delicious. The service was wonderful, as they know most people that are eating there are going to a Broadway show, so they know to move the meal along. All in all, another great experience. Will be back!
