La Masseria RI
Great food, but priceyFood was very good, but quantities small. Fried zucchini appetizer was excellent. Service was fantastic. Pasta dishes were very good with homemade pasta. Prices very high on non pastas dishes. Great food, but not a great value for the money.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn to TuscanyLovely atmosphere. Great Stuffed Mozzarella, Filet of Sole and Chocolate Mousse. Must return to try other dishes. Friendly, attentive service. Will definitely return.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery satisfiedWe had a very good meal and bought a gift certificate for our friends as well. The food was top quality as well as the presentation. We had the first course of antipasto meats and cheeses,all top quality. My husband had the risotto which was very creative and unusual. He appreciated the the effort with the special effort of the chef with both flavor and texture. I had the special sole entree which was delicious and served with potato and green beans. We had the tasty gelato fro dessert to end a perfect meal.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the 2nd time we wentThis was the 2nd time we went and it is fantastic.Food was excellent and the service was great!!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelish!Wonderful Italian food, best we've had south of the North End & Federal Hill. Warm & friendly service. Cozy & small venue. Really enjoyed our time at La Masseria.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWell prepared food with prompt,Well prepared food with prompt, hospitable service. Reasonably priced.Delicious pasta.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible service, great foodI've been to La Masseria a few times. It is our "go to" place in East Greenwich. The atmosphere is country northern Italian. In an industry noted for turn-over, La Masseria keeps its staff. We've had the same waiter a couple times now. He's remarkably proficient at what he does. Gracious but not hovering.
Food is outstanding in a northern Italian manner. No frou-frou here.
If you're looking for a quieter meal, I recommend seating upstairs as the downstairs has an energetic bar scene.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and service.Wonderful food and service. Be prepared to pay, but worth every penny!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Rhode Island's finestWe are very spoiled in RI with great restaurants of all kinds, but especially Italian. La Masseria has just incredible food each time I go and the special cheese selections they have on a daily basis makes it very exciting especially the Baratta Cheese! The pastas are outstanding and seafood and fish selections are tremendous. I often take business associates from out of town here and they always want to come back for the meatball appetizer, which they say is there favorite meatball ever or the amazing steaks and veal chops. You will always have a great dinning experience along with world class service.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingNever a bad meal. Service is tops and staff is knowledgeable of wine and food
Only complaint? Always cold whether upstairs or down. Gals bring a sweater
Noise level is high. When a table of 4 is between a table of 8 one side and 9 on
The other, tough to hear our own conversation.
Still will be our go to place for a great meal.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific little place!Three of us arrived at 5:00pm on a Saturday for dinner. We had made reservations (strongly recommended) and were seated immediately. The service (and especially our waiter, Matt) were fast and yet when we requested some time between choosing the entrees while having our appetizers we were left alone to enjoy the delicious starters until after the dishes were cleared and Matt arrived to take our orders.
Superb meal. I recommend the rabbit that has been slow cooked in a lovely tomato gravy (not thick at all but oh so tasty). The menu has something for everybody and we had no complaints at all. We have already made plans to return.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice!We have been to La Masseria several times and have always enjoyed ourselves. On this visit, my wife and I were there with our 2 adult sons to celebrate Mothers Day. We had an excellent window table upstairs. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food was wonderful and we enjoyed some very nice wine. The prices there are always reasonable for the quality of food and service received.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch, but duped by waiter.We've been here twice, and the food is great... simple yet elegant, and always well-executed and consistent. We had lunch on Mother's Day, and while the food was up to par, we got duped by the waiter. We ordered an appetizer and made it clear we'd be splitting it... we were served two of the same dishes, and when we inquired why we recieved two appetizers, the server explained that what he gave us was the full order in two separate plates. When we received the bill, we noticed we charged for two appetizers...the server, when questioned, said that our portion was what is served for two people, and that the way the item is presented on the menu is misleading. He didn't offer to take the extra order off the tab, and we didn't press the issue.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Northern Italian RestaurantLa Masseria consistently produced the best and most creative Northern Italian-style in Rhode Island, better than anything Providence has to offer, and on a par with NYC & Boston venues. Perhaps it is because the original La Masseria is a NYC site that gave it its start, but now it has its own identity.
Service is crisp and attentive, and food delivery seems to even pick up speed when it is busiest. Relatively expensive, yes, but well worth it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian Flair FoodThe meal we had at this restaurant was delicious and creative. I didn't really like the upstairs room but our waiter made up for it. He was fun and prompt. Remember.... "TIP" means to insure promptness and he did.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat EveningFood was excellent. Service was even better. They had some unique items, some I'd never seen before. Appetizer selection was really good and there was a nice selection of desserts.
