A word from La Masseria
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. Oversized 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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We have been dining at La Masseria for years and have NEVER been disappointed. This last visit I was accompanied by three girlfriends who were so impressed with the service and the desire of our waiter to get everything just right. Upon making the reservation, the restaurant actually called to confirm the time and made a note that we were to be at the theatre for a matinee. My friends took cards on the way out...they'll be back!"

  • "Have been going for years and the food is consistently excellent. As is the service, ambiance, overall experience. The specials are numerous every night! They are accommodating about sharing and even often split the salad or app for you. Out of town guests really appreciate the authenticity as do I."

Everything about La Masseria is fabulous; the delectable food that you will dream about for a week afterwards, the wonderful and attentive waitstaff, the hostess, the wine list etc. We've been to La Masseria about ten times now and we always look forward to our next trip there. A wonderful place!"

  • "This was my first time at this restaurant, I went there after reading some great reviews about the food. The ambiance was great, great service and friendly people! Everything that we have ordered was amazing, great taste, a real Italian food!!! I certainly will return to the restaurant on my next trip to NYC and would suggest the place to all my friends!"

  • "We were excited to try this restaurant after choosing it based on great TripAdvisor reviews. And those great reviews didn't disappoint! The restaurant was beautiful, almost like stepping into a restaurant in Italy. Our table was perched overlooking the outside patio and in our opinion, the best table in the house for summer weather. Our server, Juan Paolo, was related to the owner, and also appeared to have stepped right out of Italy. He was a pro---the perfect blend of efficient and helpful, and made our experience extra special. The food was wonderful, and our only lament was that we weren't able to try more dishes on the menu! We were there for LUNCH, and would love to return for dinner--surely the ambience would seem even more magical."

  • "I was dining alone while in NYC on business. Although I had reservations, they gave me the option to sit at the bar which I decided to do. I was delighted by Alina the bartender who helped me order everything from my drink, the appetizer and the main course. The food was so fresh and amazing! I had the green bean, avocado, lobster, cherry tomato salad in a light lemon dressing and it was awesome. I had a chicken dish that was a special for the evening and it too was awesome. I had the best cup of cappuccino ever here and what made my meal even more pleasant was having Alina the bartender to chat with. I will return later in August when I'm back in the city and will go on a Monday night! Everything was fresh, delicious and lovely!"

  • "This was a very pleasant and authentic Italian restaurant. The pastas was cooked perfectly. The service was excellent and they had a great wine list. This was a very nice dinner for a family, a couple, or a business meal. Highly recommend it. The restaurant was very busy but we arrived 10 minutes late for out reservation and the table was waiting for us. The waiter was very good and pleasant as well."

  • "I had eaten at this restaurant last summer and had really forgotten about it. We just picked an Italian restaurant off of Open Table because we decided last minute to head to the city, get tickets to a show and have dinner with friends. The guys picked the restaurant and immediately upon my arrival I remebered being there and how terrific the food was. Did not disappoint. Will definetly keep this restaurant on my radar for now on."

  • "This was our 2nd visit to La Masseria and we could not have been more happy with the selection. Our server was OUTSTANDING! He was very knowledgeable, courteous, allowed us to eat at our leisure, and made appetizer and entree recommendations based upon our questions that were delicious and spot on. The food was impeccably prepared and in just the right portion. I would STRONGLY recommend the restaurant AND that you put your dining pleasure in the hands of the knowledgeable waitstaff....you will not be sorry!"

  • "Picked her for restaurant week dinner with friends due to its great reviews. However, the food was average. Although the waiter said the mozzarella was fresh, it tasted old. The salad tasted bland with hardly any dressing. My friend did like her gnocchi. The ambience was nice. Tables around us were quiet. You don't need to shout to hear across the table nor could you hear the next table's conversation which i appreciated."

  • "Our first time at this beautiful restaurant…selected it for after theater…perfect choice. It was restaurant week in NYC….found the RW menu limiting so we ordered from the regular menu. The food was excellent! I ordered salmon and my doing partners ordered various pastas and we all thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The restaurant is large but beautiful….cozy ambiance with stucco walls, high ceilings, nice mood. There was a large outside doing area if that is your preference….we found the interior more inviting for this particular evening. We would definitely return to this wonderful westside restaurant."
