Servers and drinks were great. Waitress screamed boulabais was boring
Service was wonderful, as were the drinks. The burrata appetizer special was delicious, although the prosciutto was cut a little too thick. The gnocchi and chicken with fontina and spinach were perfect. I always recommend the ricotta cheesecake!
Grace was fantastic and accommodating.. food was good and staff very professional. Always worth the trip..
Simply the best place in RI!
The restaurant didn’t honor my reservations even after I called to make sure we could sit outside. It appears that their have regulars that the hostess and manager cater to. Since it was only my third time going I guess I wasn’t part of the in crowd. Our waiter was wonderful and all that was wrong with this restaurant was no reflection on him. Food was too expensive for the limited menu and portion size. I have had several of my friends and coworkers have the same sentiments about this restaurant.
Excellent everything!!!!! Food, service, drink menu and dessert!! All so good!!!! Can’t wait to go back
We enjoyed a special birthday celebration. The atmosphere was delightful. The service was excellent and the food was spectacular. Great evening!
Always A+ great food and service
The shrimp cocktail were huge and perfect, nice oysters and delicious snail salad. Steak tartare was very wet (I did not like it). The braised rabbit was delicious as usual. I ordered a pasta special with crabmeat… I needed a microscope to find any crab in it. It was tasty but not worth the special price.
Perfect place for a birthday dinner!! One of my favorite go-tos.
The evening started with the news all lobster, chicken, and ravioli dishes were unavailable. The evening ended with the wrong ticket charged to my debit card (50% too much), a second charge being added to my card (the correct charge), and "the hold will cycle off in a couple of days"... One of my go-to places that we will go back since the food is outstanding but Monday may not be the optimal day.
Have loved this restaurant and eaten here several times. This time the food was definitely not up to par. Pasta was dry, meat overcooked, portions small for the money. Disappointing!
It was obvious they were suffering from current short staffing issues, but our server was great even while running around covering too many tables.
Will return as hopefully this is a temporary blip!
Or two sets dishes were very bland. The gnocchi was recommended for its rich cheesy flavor but tasted like a flour and water sauce.
My husbands lobster pasta was very lack luster and the little lobster that was in it was chewy.
We will not be back as this is not the first bad experience.
Outstanding menu and great flavors. Service was not as good as expected. Actually, young man whom delivered our food was more impressive than server. He was hopping throughout the restaurant. Appetizers very pricy, and entrees not so bad. I will return.
Traveling through RI and we saw good reviews, so decided to give La Masseria a try. Easy to get a last-minute reservation. They have valet parking.
Seated and ordered some wine. Also ordered one of the appetizer specials (Burrata). Very good and likely made on-site, fresh. Bread delivered (Italian bread and focaccia). Both breads were fresh and tasty.
I ordered rigatoni with sausage, meatballs and braised shortribs; my wife ordered octopus and cuttlefish. Rigatoni dish was extremely hot, almost like it was in the microwave. I don't think it was though. Meatballs were small and somewhat dense. I didn't hate the dish, but didn't love it. I had higher expectations. Wife reports the octopus was good, but the dish was bland. No seasoning at all, it seemed. Just lacked flavor. She's never had cuttlefish before and didn't care for it, but that wasn't seasoned either.
Tiramisu for dessert was really great.
Great date night! Food is always exceptional along with the service. I’d highly recommend this restaurant as it never disappoints!! As for the review for the guy with the rude review who said he'd rather go to Chelo....that's where he belongs.
Always has been and will be the BEST. Manny, Jose, Gabby, are amazing
Catching up with family. Good food, good service, good conversation. Overall an enjoyable evening.
Excellent service and staff !!
Excellent food and service. Style was upscale as was the food and wine choices. Nice people and area. Noise was a bit much for a small place and the place was small in size. Great for a date night or small gathering. Would recommend but not for large gatherings.
Fantastic meal, fantastic service. Could of had some specials but still one of my favorite places to eat
My friend visiting from NC coast said her halibut was the best fish she’d ever eaten. So good.
We were upstairs and there were only a couple of guests so it was very quiet. I would imagine downstairs might’ve been a little noisier. Service was a little slow but we all know that restaurants don’t have the staff that they need right now. Food was delicious, our server was very personable.
My husband and I enjoyed an amazing anniversary dinner. The food and drinks were prepared perfectly and so flavorful. Our server Steven was attentive and courteous. We will definitely be back.
Buona l’atmosfera buono il cibo autentico italiano.
Wait staff on point and very Hospitable
Service - excellent
Calamari - not a fan
Tuna special - steak was overcooked, tartare was very good
salmon - very good
overall - recommend
Wonderful experience! Food and service was excellent.
Can't wait to return in the near future.
I feel like restaurants are rebounding post covid and LaMasseria is one of them. The squid combo appetizer was dry and small for $17.50. The meatballs were ok, decent size, but mine are better, and $20 for two? I had the flattened veal dish and it needed some kind of sauce to go with it. I got the french fries for the table as a side and thought they were Ore-ida frozen. My son had the veal chop and it looked raw to me and he inhaled it anyways. There was califlower and broccoli with his veal chop and they looked like they were frozen. My wife had the lobster pasta and she liked it. The waitress was ok but she was only there for two months. Why do they not have ice bucket for every table with bottles of wine? Does it make sense to be sharing ice buckets for a couple of tables? Not to me. Desert and cappuccino was good. This dinner was $300 without tip. Sorry, but I'd go to Chelos on airport road next time.
We ate outside. Food was fantastic. Great people watching.
We go there often. It is the best Italian restaurant in the area. Always have a great experience.
Always consistent . Food was excellent. The only criticism from this experience was our water glasses were never refilled after they initially were filled after being seated…was offered a drink upon being seated but never asked again if We wanted a refill or something else to drink.
Didn’t feel welcomed by the Maître d'hôtel, he seemed distracted even though we were early diners.
Faith, our server and the rest of the wait staff and the food all were excellent and well tipped.
The food has always been excellent! I've been a few times and the service is great!
Eric is an amazing waiter. Egg ravioli truffle special is to die for - super unique! Great Italian food.
It was an absolutely beautiful night and had reservations for inside. When we got there I asked if they could accommodate us outside. And sure enough they did! Beautiful night and food excellent and sitting outside in EG.
A wonderful dining experience. Great service from a very knowledgeable waiter. He knew the menu and made smart, accurate recommendations. The bottle Barolo (2013) was a perfectly accompanied our dinner. The restaurant is a bit noisy; but who cares when the food is this good? FIVE STARS!!!!
Food and service were wonderful. The ricotta cheese cake was delicious!
Food was very good. Service was excellent. Was not rushed which was nice given I was meeting a friend for dinner and many years of life to catch up on. This was most appreciated!
I wrote a letter to the owner no response. We were in a corner no A/C so it was like an oven in there. I asked my waiter about my dish and it came out not like he described and my chicken was a salt stick, I sent it back. No new food was offered or did any one come to ask me about it. My husband wanted bread sticks they said there were none, but the table next to us got them..hummmmmmmmmmm Two of the my party ordered risotto it was the portion size for a child and the was crunchy and under cooked. So overall bad night , great company and we went home and ate.
