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 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.

    Food and service was outstanding again! Anthony was our server this time and he did a fantastic job. No rushing people out the door to stack another party into the slot. Food quality is excellent with appropriate sized portions. No leftovers for us though, cleaned the plates!

    We arrived 10 minutes before 5 which is when the restaurant opens we were told to wait outside which we did and had no problem doing . About 5 minutes later a couple walked in and were seated. Then a larger party walked in and they were seated too . This after our party of 3 was told to wait outside for 10 minutes. Needlessly to say I wasn’t to happy about that

    First time there and it did not disappoint. Our waiter Peter was great. He helped us with the menu and even offered to have something different from the list if we were looking for something else. The food was cooked perfectly and tasted great. When we arrived it was not busy, but when we left most tables were occupied. It is a very popular restaurant, so a reservation is a must. All staff were very friendly and we did not have an empty water glass. We will be back!

    I’ve dined at La Masseria numerous times, and it consistently proves itself as THE BEST Italian restaurant in Rhode Island. This last visit was particularly exceptional. Our server Peter was outstanding: very personable and attentive, he made a number of terrific recommendations. The starter cheese and salume board featured the best prosciutto we’ve ever had, sliced so thinly it was almost transparent and wonderfully moist and flavorful. On Peter’s recommendation, two of us went “off - menu”: my Veal Parmigiana was perfectly executed, and my daughter remarked that her Fettucini Alfredo was the beat she ever had. My wife’s Veal Ravioli (an item on the menu) was awesome. I can’t wait to dine again at La Massseria! Bravo!!

    As always the food was fantastic. Our server was patient and understanding as we were stressed about getting a flat tire on our way. He delivered our much-needed bottle of wine quickly and waited till we were organized with AAA before taking our orders. Sitting outside it was very nice. La Masseria is always a favorite and last nights service went above and beyond.

    Was very busy for a Monday night. Initial service took a little longer (we were told someone called out sick) but after orders were placed, there wasn't much wait. We ended up being the last table in the place, but even with the kitchen getting ready to close, the food was still spectacular!

    We’ve dined at this restaurant many times over the last 12 years. The food quality/ taste was not up to par. The veal parm was relatively bland and the chicken chunks were a bit overcooked/ dry. The arugula salad was disappointing and ingredients did not compliment each other. The prior recipe was more basic yet spot on. We ate at the bar and the bartenders delivered very good service. Much of the staff seems to have changed over as we understand the chef has. The experience overall was good but here’s the rub: Masseria today is as good as any restaurant on Main Street , but they were always better- much better.

    Been multiple times but this was the first, that was disappointing. I had the clams and linguine and it was blah, basically flavorless. My husband had the swordfish special it was okay. It was prepared with creamed spinach which was also meh. The service was great as it always is but we may take a break from la masseria for a bit.

    Busy Saturday night and the restaurant was full. Our server was clearly stressed and jumping around like an alcoholic at last call. We waited 10 minutes for the back waiter to deliver water. 15 minutes later our server rushed over and tried to hurriedly get us to order drinks even though we didn’t have menus. It went downhill from there. Nice restaurant, noisy ambiance but acceptable. Food was very well done and prepared. Would return to see if service was an anomaly.

    The food was superb. The young waiter kept interrupting our conversation and when a plate fell, he let me pick it up and didn't replace it. Ask for Peter if you can - he's a fantastic waiter. Noise level got a bit high.

    Most of the food was really delicious and beautifully prepared. Only one dish was not so good.... We thought the pasta con vongole (clams) was quite mediocre - not nearly enough clam flavor and hardly any olive oil so that the pasta was actually dry. The fish of the day was delicious, as were the salads. It is crazy expensive, but actually worth it as it is such a lovely place and almost everything was excellent.

    I’ve always love La Masseria but our meal this time was not terrific. I’m not sure what’s changed but the restaurant didn’t feel the same. Also, the prices seem to have really increased which I don’t mind if the food is great… but it wasn’t.
