A word from Massa' Italian Kitchen & Bar
Massa' Italian Kitchen & Bar is brought to life by father and son team, Pasquale and Francesco Coli. In business together for more than a decade, they open Massa' as their second venture. Pasquale serves as Massa' consulting chef and brings his expertise of the Italian cuisine to life through a classic menu. Massa' features a variety of Italian dishes on its menu.

The name of the restaurant, Massa', short for masseria, is an old-world country farmhouse on an estate often found in Puglia, where Pasquale and Francesco were born. The restaurant was completely renovated for a "farmhouse" ambiance with a planked vaulted ceiling, floor to ceiling stone fireplace and wood floors. The wood throughout is reclaimed wood over 100 years old sourced from barn houses in New England adding to the authentic, rustic feel.

    We went with the our 2 children and had a great experience. The food was very good and the service excellent. The atmosphere was very cosy with the fire place and high wood ceilings. There was some live music which the kids enjoyed a lot. We recommend a desert the fried dough with Nutella. An absolute Must Have !!!

    The food is absolutely delicious. While the layout of the restaurant is very interesting, multiple floors in a loft type environment, getting a "comfortable" table is difficult-unless you are a regular.

    We had loved their previous restaurant, "La Villetta" in Larchmont. The menu was very similar, but the food and service have fallen. We had been away for a few years and were excited to hear that these owners had opened up Massa. It ended up being very disappointing.

    We love their rack of lamb, and sometimes it is not on the menu. But when ask if they can prepare it for us, somehow they always find a delicious rack of lamb, accompanied by potato and a sautéed vegetable. Wonderful place for us to eat a wonderful meal.

    The Host was all over us the entire time. We knew he was trying to be attentive, but it was overbearing. Also, he was drenched in aftershave. The food was ordinary, but expensive. For two people, we had one salad to split, a fish dish and chicken Marsala, a vodka and a wine. With tax and tip, it came to $98, for a meal that was no better, and in some ways worse, than a local Italian family restaurant, which would have cost, perhaps, $50.

    Dined here at least half a dozen times. Food still superb but menu is in transition and website does not reflect current offerings. Wine list also transitioning and it took a personal trip to the wine cellar "Cantina" to find a great Barolo. Service was very spotty with at least 4 different folks caring for our table, with very long pauses between courses. Perhaps they were understaffed that evening .

    Last time my wife got this dish and she wouldn't share a bite. And I can see why since I ordered it myself this time. Wonderful. The Chianti, only $42 went perfectly with the dish. We started with the pulpo which is always great. All this builds my anticipation for Massa's new endeavor coming up soon I hope, their fish restaurant in Mamaroneck. I cannot wait.

    Had great expectations for this one; thoroughly disappointed. Should have known something was up when one of my dining companions and myself ordered mojitos. After a small wait, we were told that the bar didn't have any mint and therefore the drink wasn't available. That should have been a clue that the restaurant/kitchen was unorganized. Appetizer--soft shell crabs over salad. The crabs weren't fresh--overbreaded and fried to a crisp. Result--no flavor and very little meat left. Warned that could be "spicy". Like spicy--this was overkill. Main dish-eggplant parmesan. It was horrible. This was basically eggplant cubes with cooked cheese used as a sauce. This is not how this dish is customary made and it was just bad. Tasteless.

    At some point during the evening, music (I think live) began from upstairs at a volume that made any further conversation with my dining companion impossible. Since I normally only go out to dinner with people I like, I do want to be able to talk to them. That can't happen at Massa's except very early in the evening before the music starts. Too bad, too, because the food was good.

    We had an outstanding Father's Day brunch. The food and service were perfect (the service was a bit too much because we were the only people in the restaurant). The eggs Benedict are a must-have. My only compliant (and the reason for four stars vs. five) was that Open Table allowed us to make a reservation before the restaurant opened :-/ We're not sure whether this was Massa's faux pas or OT's...

    This was the second time we were at Massa'. The first was quite late in the evening and we had the place almost all to ourselves. This time we had an 8:30 reservation but asked if we could come earlier and we were readily accommodated for a 7:30 arrival. Given the earlier hour the restaurant was much busier and the noise level was quite high. As on our previous visit the food was excellent. The escargot with mushrooms was very tasty, although the roasted beet salad did not have much of a roasted taste to it. The Atlantic salmon with shrimp (only one), mussels and clams was very tasty as was the chicken special. The tiramisu dessert could have had a bit more zing.

    First visit to Massa. Very pretty restaurant, and menu had some unusual choices, like braised wild boar, and we had high hopes. Alas, it was not to be. One of the bronzino filets had a definite fish smell, salads were very heavy on dressing, and no one in our party of 4 was very happy. No sparkling water at this Italian restaurant because "the truck broke down." Deserts were good. A "deconstructed cannoli" was innovative and great for sharing. Staff is very friendly and welcoming, so one wants this restaurant to work, but it needs some strong management fast.

    Scarsdale happens to be a great meeting place for people getting together from NJ,NY, and CT. The ambience at Massa is excellent and a group who has travelled to get together can linger over food and drink. However, the menu differs from what is described online, the wait staff described the appetizers and entrees available incorrectly and there did not seem to be any way to order anything with slightly different preparations. So a great meeting place, but not really for foodies.

    Maybe I should have realized that on a holiday, it gives restaurants the right to rip people off by forcing them to eat from a prix fix menu. It starts with an offer of a glass of champagne and then that was retracted because that was only for the brunch menu. Ordered a steak for dinner at $60 per person and was served 6 slices of steak and not a full steak at 8 to 10 ounces. Very disappointed in the cost and the value we received that night.

    Food was very good. We had buratta, calamari and tuna apps. Gnocci, carbonara pasta and linguni w clams dinners. Canoli and molten chocolate cake desserts were very good. Service was lacking from the start. There were several empty tables but we had to wait (aft 9pm), it looked as though the hostess and everyone was moving very slow or busy with everything but service. It also seemed too long before we were served our cocktails (but our water was poured right away). Bread also came out late and the basket seemed to be thrown together with small cut up pieces (odd), our second basket came out better. Maybe they were busy earlier and just tired(?).
