    We tried this cozy, attractive restaurant after a matinee recently and were very pleased with the food, the service as well as the ambiance. The waiters were attentive but not intrusive; we were able to enjoy our meal in a relaxed and warm atmosphere. Highly recommend for the quality of food and reasonable price.

    I loved the warm, rustic and yet still elegant atmosphere to Lattanzi. It was even better than it appeared online. The food was wonderful. Seafood appetizer was very fresh and delicious. Simple pasta dishes were delicious: Bucatini with smoked bacon tomato sauce was wonderful. Since we've only been there once, it's difficult to judge the service. Our waiter was not brimming with personality and did not check to see if we needed anything very often. Hard to get his attention. We would have to return again to truly judge the service but may hesitate to choose Lattanzi for a special occassion because of our first experience.

    Found this place because I could not (one again) get a reservation to my first choice, Becco at the pre-show time needed. This restaurant is 2 doors away and what a great find! Wonderful menu, great service and a much more pleasant experience. A relaxed environment with no one sitting on top of you or bumping into your chair. A wonderful menu, we opted to share a pasta as an appetizer and ordered salmon and swordfish. All dishes were perfectly cooked and ample food in each course. Our waiter was attentive and efficient. I will be returning next time as my first choice. Well done Lattanzi!!

    Such excellent service, first of all. Attentive and professional. Had a wonderful white bean soup, piping hot with the great bread. Had a veal (saltimbocca style with huge slices of porcini in a marsala sauce). It was delicious, but I must say as this was my first time having veal there, the meat itself was kind of thick, tough and "breaded". Had similar dishes twice in the last week elsewhere and both were tender pounded thin veal. Not sure if this was usual at Lattanzi or just an off experience.

    While visiting New York we caught the matinee performance of Motown the musical at the Lunt Fontaine and then headed over to an early supper at Lattanzi. Super convenient to the theatre district and we loved that the restaurant was broken up into smaller rooms so we could actually hear each other talk. Food and wine were good and the service was great. Prices seemed pretty average. Would definitely recommend to friends.

    Found this place on Yelp during a recent trip to The Big Apple. Excellent food! I had the best veal marsala I've ever eaten. My husband and I shared an order of the fried artichoke hearts as an appetizer. Yum! One suggestion to the chef: serve lemon butter for dipping. The service was great. Too bad we were too full for dessert--the offerings were tempting. Can't wait to go back on our next trip.

    We were a group of 10 and had a lovely dinner at Lattanzi after seeing Beautiful. There was a warm welcome, a perfect round table set against brick walls and surrounded by bottles of wine. Our group has a a few picky eaters and the menu had enough choices tp accomaodate everyone's taste. The food was very good, the service excellent, and we were left to eat, drink and laugh, with no one rushing us out the door. It was a perfect choice for us, and we were happy to find a good place on restaurant row to dine.

    The food was really good! The menu specified Jewish Italian which I had never experienced. The artichoke appetizer and piccata style fish were SOOO good. Also, our waiter was very charming. He took excellent care of us and did a very good job with the wine. The bottle we wanted wasn't available, so he gave us a more expensive bottle for the same price.

    Its rare that I emphasize ambiance in a Manhattan restaurant but Lattanzi just felt right for us. Round tables in a square space? Unusual since that configuration reduces the number of tables but greatly enhances the feeling of openness and comfort for the diners. The service was top notch. Even though our waiter had more than one too many tables to oversee, the others around including the maitre'd pitched in when he wasn't available. The food was fine, especially considering the reasonable prices, with classic preparations of Italian dishes, including enough food left over to take back for a substantial lunch the next day. With many competing restaurants around for Broadway show-bound diners, this was a great find.

    I met with an International business partner for lunch. I am from NJ and really have no idea where to meet anyone for lunch, in NYC, but I wanted an Italian restaurant with well prepared food where we could be left to discuss our work. I wanted a menu that was more than just pasta and a lot of sauce, with some meat and fish options. The reviews I read indicated that the people here were very accommodating. It really was perfect. The food was very good. The staff could see we were working and would occasionally check in to see if we wanted to order etc, but left us alone. It was quiet. It was charming with a rustic but elegant decor, and I was proud to have brought my guests to such a very lovely place.

    Lattanzi is one of the best choices on "Restaurant Row" for pre-theater dining. It's been there for years and has a loyal following. The Italian menu is sophisticated and interesting, with special dishes reflecting the Roman Jewish background of the owners.

    Famous for their Roman Jewish Artichoke appetizer - this caught my attention when researching restaurants in the theater district. Have eaten here twice. Second time was better, wonderful - but we must have liked it the first time since we did go back. They have a few different rooms. The 2nd time we were in a side room, a romantic corner in the back and it was lovely and we ate such wonderful food. The artichokes of course and grilled vegetables. The linguine with white clam sauce was so flavorful. A homemade napoleon for dessert topped it off. The glass of merlot the waiter recommended was delicious. The waiter I believe arrived from Italy that afternoon - he was wonderful. He recited the specials as if a poem. Loved it all.
