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.

Very nice dinner. Sat upstairs for first time in a couple of years. It is a nice room but if there is a loud table in the room, it can be overwhelmingly loud. Food was great as usual.

Home made pasta is the best and should be your first choice. With an array of specials this is the place for fantastic Italian originals. I spent time in Milan and the pasta here is second to none.

I think I had extremely high expectations of the food at this venue. I have had plenty of people rave about the food and I was excited to have a try at it! Being a vegetarian, I ordered the special beet salad and then the whole wheat pasta with red sauce and mix veggies. I have to say the salad was fantastic. Fresh and light. The pasta was nothing really amazing, but I also do not think I have had an amazing version of wheat pasta to rave about. Maybe a few other vegetarian opinions, and I would have a different opinion. hint hint .. you can do amazing things with eggplant, or a veggie lasagna!

Everyone else I was with --5 other people-- enjoyed the food and felt it was good, but I am not sure amazing.
What I will say was amazing was the SERVICE!! 5 * service for sure. Waiter was out of this world- Chris. He was super friendly but also took his job extremely serious. I would definitely go back to visit Chris or have a seat at the bar for a drink as the decor is beautiful!

Every time we come...business... pleasure.....just don't want to cook that night...
we are treated like family and the food never fails to wow us. Take the time to try
it if you have not had the chance yet. For those who have...we'll see you there!

Don't drink the tap water as it tastes awful! Too many "specials of the evening" to remember. Only one soup offered and did not sound appealing, so we split a salad which wasn't too pretty to look at when presented. Clams and linguini only served with small Italian clams, not fresh local ones, and no pieces of clam added to the pasta. Lobster pasta dish overpowered by red pepper flakes seasoning. Lobster used only the cheapest part of the lobster, no tail or claw meat detected. Would not order again, also portion too big could only eat less than half. Rabbit dish was the nicest presentation as it came in a little pot, but the bones were a little too much for the (elderly) diner to handle. Dessert was the best part. Diner enjoyed his tiramisu, and we split the raspberry sorbet with fresh berries. Not one of our best dining experiences.

It was our first visit to La Masseria. We ordered the shrimp, Calamari and scallop appetizer. Each was perfectly prepared and flavorful. Our entrees were excellent and our server was attentive even while handling a larger party on the lower floor of the restaurant. A great evening that we will be repeating in the near future.

Our waiter did not meet our expectations and what we come to expect at La Masseria. He was abrasive and did not know the menu. He actually grabbed the menu from my hand to look at it when I asked a question. He was not knowledgeable about the specials or the regular menu. Our first 3 entree choices were not available and we weren't informed in a timely way. He was not very attentive. The food was excellent as always .

My husband and I went for Valentine's Day dinner. Food was great as always and our server was wonderful and very kind. We were the only same-sex couple in the restaurant and usually we hardly notice that fact but it became apparent when the manager made his way to all of the 15 or so tables but ours. He stopped by each to ask how the evening was going, welcomed them to the restaurant and thanked them for being here, looked at our table and avoided coming over. We are both very friendly and lovable people but this avoidance hurt our feelings and while nothing could ruin our night together especially on a day when we celebrate our love, it was hurtful that we felt out of place and not welcome. Never thought that something as simple as that could leave such an impression on us:(

Always an excellent experience at La Masseria! Our family truly enjoyed all aspects from ambiance to service and especially the cuisine. All of our meals were delicious, but the overwhelming crowd favorites were the halibut special and the truffle-egg ravioli. We love it here and will be back very soon. Outstanding!

They offer a special that is Ravioli with an egg in the center that is hard to describe but incredibly delicious! Food is excellent and the service was just right. Can't go wrong if you're looking for a nice night out with friends, a date or to celebrate. Great ambiance. Nice bar area too.

I have wanted to visit the restaurant after hearing many great reviews. I was not disappointed. Having lived in Italy in the past , my standards of Italian food may be a little higher. But the food was great, the calamari was like I used to eat in Naples. Not greasy and overloaded with calories, but the real fritti! I will be back.

We have been coming to La Masseria since the beginning...here(RI) and in NYC.
Fantastic for business, casual and special occasions. We understand a new location in the Palm Beach(Fl) area has opened up, and will make it a point to stop by when in the area.
Overall....wonderful food, exceptional staff and hands on management!
