La Masseria RI
Date night with the Mrs. always a great time - Manny is a great host
My husband and I had an early (5pm) dinner on the second floor of La Masseria on January 9, 2021. Valet was quick, seated immediately, service was wonderful and the food was outstanding. The atmosphere is lovely as well - rustic and warm. Impressive wine list and amount of specials for dinner.
With everything that is going on right now I was not expecting to be seated on top of another table. So close that we could not get up from our table at the same time.
Waited for 25 minutes before getting drinks. Only one waiter upstairs, Matradee not friendly at all. Ordered two apps, only received one bc the server was too busy waiting on other people to hear what we wanted.
Top notch taste and ingredient combinations. Everything was absolutely delicious, from the appetizers to the desserts. We were upstairs in a cozy corner. We could hear each other perfectly but could not hear anyone else’s conversation.
NYE always a fantastic evening here. Jose and Manny and their team are outstanding. Best meal in the state right here.
Great food & great service! Will definitely be back
New Year’s Eve my husband and I had a great dinner. Food was delicious, service was excellent. Really enjoyed our dinner.
One of the best restaurants we have been in RI! Everything was spot on!
La Massaria is a fantastic restaurant with fine dishes, service and cocktails. My only complaint on this visit was that my wife and I were seated between a family with 2 typically chatty young children and a noisy party of 8. In normal times we probably wouldn't have had an issue with that, though in these Covid times that makes for a distracted and not-very-intimate experience. Perhaps management can come up with a system for keeping one part of the restaurant quiet (only parties of two upstairs on weekends and holidays, for one possibility)...
The food and service are always outstanding at this restaurant. I love the rustic atmosphere and charm. I have NEVER had a bad meal here and it remains my favorite place to eat!
Service was outstanding. Food was perfect. Great Christmas Eve dinner. Thank you.
We always enjoyed going to La Masseria but have noticed a decline in the food quality and management. One of the reasons we would go on a weekly basis was because the service and environment were
We were happy to support La Masseria during the two week pause here in RI. It was a little depressing to be the only people in the restaurant on a Saturday night but the food distracted us from that. We had the meatballs as an appetizer, chicken parm and pasta vecchia for dinner. They have great gluten free options and even made the vecchia sauce completely gluten friendly.
We Love La Masseria. Every time the food is amazing, the service is wonderful, and Jose is so welcoming and attentive.
Great place that is never disappointing.
This is the best joint in the state. Fresh delicious dishes, amazing wine and the entire team led by Jose does a wonderful job making everyone feel like family. Try the Veal Scaloppini w Black truffle simply amazing. Lets support them for take out when the new retail hours take effect during COVID. Thank you team La Massareia, Marc.
An old world Italian atmosphere with wonderful food and attentive service. Jimmy(the bartender) is also “old school” and makes the absolute best cosmopolitan in town.
We had reservations for 7:30 and no one even took our drink order until 8:15. My husband was so annoyed, he went up to the hostess . Once he did that, they tried to make up for it but then the service seemed pushy. Don’t think we would go back.
We felt extremely rushed. Server took more care to EG wealthy regulars. Food was cold and meatballs were dry. Will never go back. For what we paid I’d expect a much better dining experience.
Awesome food consistent every time we go. Perfect Covid protocol.
Food was just ok not slot of flavor on duck dish pasta overdone
Always a great time here. Service is top notch, food is great. Lots of options beyond the standard menu with their extensive list of daily specials. One of my favorite spots in RI.
Our experience at La Masseria was perfect! We enjoyed great food , had some delicious wine and finished our evening with yummy desserts and espresso. The entire experience was truly amazing because of our server. She was well mannered, knowledgeable and professional. We will be back! Thank you :)
La Masseria is phenomenal. Best Italian food in Rhode Island. All the food is excellent and the service is second to none. Every dish was delicious
As usual amazing. You can’t beat this atmosphere, friendly service and amazing food. Manny and Jose run this
place to a “T”. Thank you !
Always excellent. We have the same waiter every time I forget his name, he is fantastic.
Great night Great service great dinner and awesome Martinis
We always go to LaMass for friends birthday dinners! The employees are so attentive and the food is absolutely phenomenal.
This was a birthday dinner for my son and his wife. They absolutely loved their experience. Everything from the staff to the food was wonderful. They are visiting from Arizona and got the true Rhode Island hospitality!!
Literally AMAZING. Soooo delicious.
The homemade pasta was excellent. We will definitely be going back!
Main street stroll, tables outside --made for a very festive and fun evening! Food was delicious as always. Especially enjoyed the pistachio, artichoke and avocado salad.
Prompt seating, cozy atmosphere, interesting cocktails, large list of fine wines at all price levels, great menu and a long list of irresistible specials both appetizers and entrees, an attentive and knowledgeable waitstaff assures a memorable evening.
Called restaurant to confirm they had outdoor heaters. When I arrived not one heater was working - every one of them was out of fuel. Manager whined that he would have to go get more propane. We froze while it took him an hour to get heat on. It took 30 minutes for the waiter to take our drink order (and I had to ask). Food was meh and way over priced. ($40 for Veal Milanese I could have made better at home). My friend and I lingered over drinks, apps, dinner, and dessert as we hadn't seen each other in ages. Even with sub-par food and service (which we did not complain about but should have) we left a 20% tip. As we were leaving the manager had the nerve to chastise us for staying too long (!!). We never saw anyone waiting and there was zero communication about there being any kind of time limit for outdoor tables. If we had been in any way aware that we were holding up a party we would have absolutely not have lingered. This place used to be a gem. I'll never go back.
Great food exceptional service I’ve been there numerous times and never a bad meal!
We ate outside in front of the restaurant which can be noisy on Main Street. Veal was a bit chewy but good. Hubby’s eggplant and pasta was delicious. Our server was very attentive. The food was good but not extraordinary considering the prices.
Friday night ate upstairs inside. Tables very spaced - outside eating available with heaters but it was a very cool evening. Specials were plentiful and we chose two. Started with grilled cuttle fish and octopus on a bed of rabes.Tender, flavorful just excellent! Had Sole with a Asian Cole slaw. Swordfish with a grilled scallops with sautéed veggies with roasted potatoes. Best meal we’ve had since the reopening of local restaurants. Prices are moderate to high however its quality food and preparation. Would absolutely recommend and will go back.
Our server was great but extremely slow process. We were there an hour after only drinks and apps and still weren’t asked to place order for dinner. Place was extremely loud even at 5:30 early in the evening. Food was terrible! Not at all what we expected for Italian. Calamari was extremely bland and way over priced. Mozzarella special was just as terrible. We ended up asking for the check after our apps and going elsewhere. Sadly we will not be returning. Want good Italian check out Cafe Assisi in Wrentham MA!
Excellent food and service...if you appreciate excellent Italian food, this is well worth an evening.be award that there is no longer a luncheon menu although the web site indicates that there is...felt very comfortable with Covid precautions and I am a nurse..,
