Diner Reviews
  • "We were promptly seated and within seconds a person appeared with water. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. the food was excellent and was of reasonable size (not too large or small). The pasta tasted like it was advertised (home made). Only small criticism- The lemongelo was a bit overpriced."

  • "Stopped here for lunch before the theatre and had an excellent meal. Everyone in our party of 5 ordered something different and all were delicious! Service was very attentive without being annoying. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "I think this place is great especially for theater goers. I took clients to dinner here, food was good not mind blowing but good. Price seemed reasonable to me. Atmosphere was nice. I would definitely come back for another shot at it. I would not get the linguine again however I would try another dish. Attentive and kind staff. Overall a win in my book."

  • "Italian restaurants in NY City have a tough job standing out, but Lattanzi does, both for the quality of its food and the variety of menu offerings. It has much of the same fare as others, but supplements that with an unusual Roman Jewish menu comprising dishes we've never seen at similar restaurants. The Carciofl Alla Giudia, artichokes sauteed with garlic and olive oil, was memorable. And the seafood entrees we ordered also were excellent. Add the cordial but professional wait service and classy, but not stuffy ambiance, and the result is a restaurant you'll probably want to go back to more than once. Just sorry we didn't find it sooner."

  • "I was disappointed at this restaurant. The food was good but the service was non-existent. They completely ignored me and catered to a man who knew the owner sitting at the table next to me. Bad service. I wouldn't recommend this place or go back here again. It's an old world type restaurant."

  • "Lattazni used to be a gem on restaurant row. Now it just coasts. Attention to the details, refilling glasses. Not hiding the bottle of white wine in an ice bucket in the next room. If you are going to charge $45+ for a veal chop it should be a sizable veal chop (beware chef's discretion for temperature will get you something between medium and medium well - not the expected rare to medium rare) who overlooks veal? It's become a tourist trap."

  • "We were half way through our appetizers when the server showed up with our main course. We refused to be served until we had finished our appetizers. When the waiter came over and we explained what had happened, he graciously offered us a round of drinks when we told him we didn't want anything at that time, he then offered us some desserts. Our main course was served correctly, at which time I ordered one additional drink. I will say the food was excellent. Upon finishing our main course, we ordered one dessert to share. Going over the check I found that neither a drink or dessert had been complementary as promised. Either one would of been satisfactory. People who wait tables should not have short memories. good food, poor service."

We had excellent wine and a delicious dinner. We would glad go back and in fact we did four nights later. Highly recommend this resturant."

  • "The service, food and ambiance are all perfect to celebrate an important occasion. You are made to feel special and so far never disappointed with the food. Back room has the feel being in Italy under the grape vines. If you are going to see a show, they will get you out in time without making the experience feel rushed."

  • "The wait staff was great and the food was delicious! My fellow diners loved the sea bass, and the veal piccata melted in my mouth! High raves too for the artichoke soup!"

  • "I've been to Lattanzi about 6 times in the past 10 years. Even considering that it is a theater-district restaurant, dependent on tourist business, the food has always been quite good. This time, with the exception of the very good Jewish artichokes, our food was stunningly mediocre. My meat-filled pasta was dry. Not enough tomato sauce to moisten it. Not much taste. The green lasagna one of my daughters' had was bland and not very good. Mushroom ravioli -- meh. Desserts tasted commercially sweet, with the exception of the creme brulee, which was dreadful. It came out warm, with the sugar crust melted to mush. When I asked a busboy to replace it he brought it back microwaved warmer still. Sad, as it's a lovely place with good service."

  • "My family loves Lattanzi. It was recommended to us at our hotel a few years ago and we will continue to return there whenever we are in NYC. It is the perfect location for before or after shows and the food is excellent. They have a great menu, attentive staff, and delicious food. We especially enjoyed the desserts this year - some of the best we have had in NYC!"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We have been going to Lattanzi for longer than I can to mention. Whether there for brunch, dinner or pre-theater, the food and service is consistently excellent. Always a "go back to" and always recommended to friends."

  • "The service was so quick that it was hard to believe that the food was freshly made. However, it was very fresh and exquisite. The pastas were homemade with the freshest ingredients, finest sauces, and unbelievably delicious. For appetizers, we had the pasta bolognese and the rolled pasta with spinach and ricotta. For our main course we had branzino oreganato and veal marsala. Both superb! The veal was so thin and tender. This place exceeded my expectations."

  • "Decor, Service, Food was great, except we were one of two tables in the whole restaurant. It made for a very surprising and awkward lunch time in the beginning; hopefully it's more busy during the evening. Definitely come here with someone you're comfortable with. keep in mind there is also a sidewalk/patio seating area. We saw it afterwards and wished we had sat there."

  • "Have been eating at Lattanzi since the 1990's and have always had a terrific meal there. It's my go-to after theatre restaurant (after a 7 p.m. curtain). Everyone I've brought there over the years has loved it as well. The wine list is varied and the food is excellent--the Jewish artichokes and the chicken cacciatore are my favorites. Can't say enough good things about the place."
