    The food and service are fantastic. It definitely is a place you want to put on your favorite list. The food is always consistently excellent as well as the service. That comes from having the same chef, wait staff and Manager for many years. It is always a favorite of mine and my familiy's.

    We dine out quite often. The food was excellent at this restaurant, ambiance also very nice. The SERVICE was not great despite the fact that there were many waiters, bus boys and maitre d's coming back and forth to our table. The problem, which is very unacceptable, water was not refilled, bread basket was not refilled, olive oil was not refilled NOR were we asked if we would like more bread or olive oil. Very unprofessional for a restaurant of such rave reviews.

    The food was totally superb! The black squid pasta dish was too yummy! the artichoke appetizer was fantastic. I can't say anything but great about the food. The waiters however were under par. They didn't know the menu and gave us the wrong drinks. Then at the end when our check came we had the drinks from another table on our bill. When we brought the $65 over charge to the waiters attention he made us feel like it was out fault. The drinks did come off but if there were a better staff this should not have happened. I will return only because the food out weighed the bad staff.

    The food was truly mediocre, fine perhaps for tourists but not for New Yorkers. My wife and i ordered different types of fish; the fish that they served was exactly the same and absolutely tasteless. The decor was fine as was the service, but I certainly would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoyed good food.

    I simply depended on Open Table reviewers when I picked this restaurant. Not one I know who loves to dine out has been here. I say this is a hidden gem. The halibut special was oooh so good! So were the other orders. Service was satisfactory except the man who met us at the entrance by the receptionist"s desk was unsmiling and cold. (Am not sure if he is the manager, owner or maitre'd) He could use a smile or two! One great thing we appreciated was that although a busy place, they did not rush us, unlike other busy places who would obtrusively clean up your table and hand you the bill before you ask for it. My request for a bday candle on the dessert of my niece was unfortunately forgotten. Despite these 2 negatives, I would highly recommend the place to anyone looking for Italian cuisine in the Times Sq. area.

    Lattanzi never disappoints. It has a genteel atmosphere even though it is on Restaurant Row. The cuisine is reminiscent of Rome and the artichokes shouldn't be missed.

    My wife and I visit New York City about two or three times a year. We always try to find the time, at least one evening per visit, to dine at Lattanzi. We know that three things are consistent about this restaurant. The restaurant has a romantic atmosphere, the service is top notch, and the food is very good. We always recommend Lattanzi to friends and business associates traveling to the city.

    Everything about the restaurant from the food to the staff was excellent. There is a wide variety of food. My wife had the pasta primavera and I had the veal chop. Both were the best I can remember having in a restaurant. The rest of our party of eight felt the same about their food. The Martini was a good pour and there was a nice selection of beer. Would go back to there any time I was in New York City.

    The man that greeted us when we walked in was not friendly at all. Food could be better. Chicken was a little bland. Lobster was rubbery. Our waiter was very friendly and professional and the restaurant was very nice inside. When I'm paying $140 for lunch for 3 people I expected lunch to be better. I will return and give it another chance to see if it is better for me. It was recommended to me by a relative.

    Enjoyed the dinner on Sunday night. Some restaurants are closed on Sunday night or open only for Brunch, Lattanzi was open for dinner. The room is cosy and the tables are not too close together. The menu was varied and had many choices which were interesting. The tomato based lobster bisque was a standout. The Bronzino was delicious and presented in an interesting way. my husband ordered tartuffo, which was very good and different from the usual half scoop covered in a chocolate shell quartered. The table had real flowers and candles. Service was good but it did take a while for the bill.

    This is my favorite restaurant in NYC. The food is fantastic--expertly prepared and not overly complicated--letting great food speak for itself. The wait staff is amazing--I am only there once or twice a year and they remember me and treat me like a weekly customer. I can find a very nice bottle of wine on their list for $40. And I love the ambience--cozy quaint setting. Absolutely lovely.

    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.
