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.

We had a great experience. The special that night was a sausage mushroom truffle dish that was one of the tastiest dishes I ever had. The cheese and meat board was good too.

So I had the Salmon at you restaurant and although it tasted a little salty I still ate most of it. I did get sick around 12 am that evening and can only think of the salmon as the cause as I had nothing else that could have made me so sick.
My friend was nice enough to call the next day and alert you of the issue but unfortunately for me never got a follow up call of any sort.
We also waited a very long time to be able to order dessert, and when a say a long time I mean that. My friends and I like to chat but kept waiting for someone to come upstairs and no one was around.
Finally got some attention but we had another long wait to get our bill.
I wouldn’t go back and would not recommend it to anyone!

Great italian with a great wine selection.

Stuffed mozzarella appetizer was delicious. Although wish I had gotten the artichoke and pistachio salad when I saw the table next to us get it.

Red wine and sangria were delightful

Although we are living in very trying times with the coronavirus! La Masseria does not disappoint with its La Famiglia welcome! The food is always perfect the service impeccable and the specials are not to be missed. If you haven’t tried it, you should. Our absolute Rhode Island favorite.

This would have been a clear 5 star in all categories however... the management is clearly not taking COVID phase 2 seriously. No mask on the manager, very lax with customers just walking in unmasked... We could tell Jose was trying but, the other manager did not even fake it.

While the food and the atmosphere was very good, the waiter was more interested in getting his work done than relating to the customers. This would be understandable if the place had been packed, but it was half empty. Instead of explaining the specials, he sounded like a machine gun. Very impersonal like a fast food joint.

It was a beautiful restaurant on Valentine's Day, packed but we didn't have to wait long (we had a reservation, though). The food was absolutely incredible. I had one of the specials - a Dover Sole filet with a meuniere sauce, and it was amazing. My date had the chicken filet with leeks and it was even better than my choice - seasoned absolutely perfectly. We had a lovely night and the waiter gave me a rose on the way out the door. Perfect for date night. I had only two complaints: (1) while the regular menu had prices listed, the specials menu did not. I ordered the Dover Sole special thinking it would be comparable in price (my date's chicken entree was about $22) and was shocked when the bill came, as my entree was nearly $50. I wish I had some warning about that. (2) I got a decaf latte and my date got espresso, as after-dinner drinks. Both of our coffees tasted burnt. They were really terrible. However, everything else was great, and the service was wonderful. I still give it five stars.

Been there before and it was great. Went on Valentines Day for dinner. The lobster bisque tasted very fishy. Didn’t finish it. Ordered the veal chop at the recommendation of a friend. It was very tough. Didn’t finish that either. $100 later I wasn’t happy. Maybe they had an off night because it was so busy but the waiter had to notice not much was eaten and never said a word

I made a last minute 5PM reservation on Valentine's Day, so maybe I should have expected what happened. We were literally the second couple there with forty empty tables around us, some with wonderful views and privacy. We were led to the top of the stairs and shown OUR table, two feet from the cold stairwell, which was a horrible location for traffic and ambiance. We refused the table and stood there for 5 minutes until the hostess came back and offered the table NEXT to the first. What can you do when you are trying to have a couples night out? I certainly wasn't going to ruin my wife's night. Of course, being early, our food was out by 5:30 and we were gone by shortly after 6 with half the room still empty. Very disappointing experience caused by the Maitr'e D. Does using OpenTable put you on the dog list?

Absolutely loved La Masseria. We went for an early dinner on a Sunday as the lunch crowd was thinning out. Delicious options ordered by all in our party, with everyone enjoying their selection. We will be returning and highly recommend the restaurant.
