    This is our fourth meal at Lattanzi and it was better than ever. We were in NYC to see "Beautiful" with our granddaughter and her boy friend and returned to Lattanzi. Everyone loved the dinner, the service and the ambiance. It was pre-theatre and due to the rain we were all late, but they held our table and everything worked out well.

    I really like the ambiance here for everything from pre-theater to late night dining. The seafood risotto and the ravioli con funghi are two standouts. Service is top notch. Friendly, professional and, efficient. Affordable wine list and a broad range of dishes and reasonable prices. In my view, one of the best Italian restaurants in the city.

    Wife and daughter went for Pre-Theatre dinner which we always to NYC this is always a place to go. This time the veal chop was thinner than it use to be and the food was just so so. Will give it one more time but it seems it has been slipping lately. Last time they seated my wife and when the daughter came in 5 mins later they seated her at a different section even though my wife had checked and daughter asked if she was here. They never connected the dots... No apologies either.

    Overall the restaurant was just ok. The ambiance was very nice and the service was very good, quick enough to enjoy a full meal before show time, without feeling rushed. However, the food was just so-so. We ordered they signature dish - artichokes cooked Jewish style, but was disappointed by it. And suggest others pass on it. For our main dishes we had Pollo Capriccioso (chicken with peppers and onions in a tomato sauce) and Branzino Oreganata, which were both very good. The best part was the tortufo for dessert, homemade and delicious.

    This was our first visit to Lattanzi, but it won't be our last. For a large restaurant, it was cozy because of the separate rooms. We were served in a non-rushed manner. The menu offers a wonderful selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Portions were perfect. They mention on the menu that portions are meant for one person. Right on the money. I don't like when restaurants literally just give you a taste for a serving, nor do I like when there is an over-abundance of food (wasteful and unnecessary). Like I said, the portions were perfectly sized. Will definitely keep Lattanzi in mind when in the theater district.

    2nd time here, first time was dinner pre theatre. This time lunch pre theatre. Really delicious but kind of surprised that lunch menu was essentially the same as the dinner menu. This means it's a fairly heavy lunch as well as pricey for lunch. Will certainly eat here again but more likely for dinner not lunch.

DH had chx milenese that came w/salad but he also ordered 1/2 order of pasta w.alfredo sauce, which I tasted too. It was very good. We shared a delicious nepolian (it was way to big for one person). Service was just right, not to sparse nor in your face would definated dine here again

    Our meal was fine, but nothing to write home about. Lattanzi is an old-fashioned Italian restaurant with homemade pastas and other familiar offerings. Nothing out of the ordinary, but no missteps, really. It's convenient to theaters which is the best reason to go there.

    My friends and I recently dined at Lattanzi restaurant with Open Table reservations. The hostess was welcoming and cordial. We were seated immediately and greeted by our wait service. We were offered our drinks and presented with the specials promptly. We ordered quickly as we had theater tickets and our appetizers and dinner arrived in a timely manner. I was very impressed with the wait service and the complete dining experience. The food was very good, freshly made and served hot.

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.

    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.
