Italian
La Masseria Restaurant is inspired from ancient fortified farmhouses that in the Puglia Region of Italy are called “Masseria”. Executive Chef/Co-Owner, Pino Coladonato, grew up on a Farm in Puglia. He was forced to eat whatever was available but soon was tired of bean puree and decided to take matters into his own hands, creating new ways to use the same few ingredients. Now, with limitless ingredients to choose from, fava beans, chickpeas and lentils are still a core element in many of his entrees. Interior Designer Libby Langdon has created a warm, inviting dining atmosphere. Rustic and relaxed, with plenty of old world charm. Oversized iron sconces custom made from antique wrought iron gates punctuate the walls, and artful displays of antique farm tools mixed with various authentic Italian photographs all add to the farmhouse appeal. The wine list encompasses all regions of Italy with few of the best American and the rest of the world.

    The food is absolutely top-notch. Just for the quality and thoughtfulness of food preparation and presentation, this may be the best Italian restaurant in Rhode Island (and that definitely is saying something in a state that prides itself for its Italian heritage). On the other hand, the service is not always great. The waiters have an unfortunate tendency both to dramatic grandiosity and to wasting time, especially with large groups, by engaging in familiar chit-chat. Some people like that. I don't. It drives me batty watching my waiter engaged in a five-minute conversation with a table of eight while I'm waiting to ask for dessert menus and the check at my table for two. Restaurants with good service teach their waitstaff to keep it quick and simple to meet the needs of all customers.

    Went in with high expectations but in the end was underwhelmed. Service was very professional. Food however was unremarkable generally. Italian dining field is crowded with many fine choices and this restaurant did not distinguish itself, especially at these prices. Good but certainly not great.

    The ambiance was very special. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Our waiter, Nick, was exceptional in every way and added to having a very pleasant experience. He is a major asset to La Masseria. We will definitely visit again when we return to Rhode Island.

    Captese salad was interesting but cheese wasn’t as fresh as it could have been Veal chop was excellent. But fish was disappointing. It was supposed to be halibut but didn’t taste like it. Fish was tough and dry. Not flakey.

    Terrible service. Between twenty and thirty minute wait between first and second courses with no attention from our waiter. Had to request a water refill twice. Old-school place with very mechanical service, food is decent to good, but pricey for Rhode Island and the overall experience does not justify the cost. We've been there previously but will not return.

    La Masseria exceeded my expectations. The menu is extensive and provides a lot of options for all dietary needs. We ordered the meatballs for an appetizer and the red sauce reminded me of my grandfather’s sauce he made when I was growing up - brought me right back. Our entrees were both veal - my husband got the veal special, I got the veal Milanese -and they were both out of this world. We were both super impressed by the wine list. It has everything you could think of in there! It took us about 8 years of living in RI to try it out and we absolutely will be back.

    We had dinner last evening at La Masseria. We had been there year ago as COVID was just lifting. Service was a bit iffy then but that was then and this is now. Luis, our waiter, was superb. The food arrived on a timely basis and was excellent. His wine recommendation was spot on. The only issue we had is that the noise level where we sat was a bit more than "energetic". Not a large issue and, of course, dependent on your "neighbors" at nearby tables. All in all excellent and good fun.
