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. Oversize 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 250-bottle wine list encompasses all regions of Italy with few of the best American and the rest of the world.

The atmosphere and food were very good. However our party of 5 were seated at a round table in the center of one of the many dining room areas where the tables around us were close and tight and often being turned over and reconfigured by staff to accommodate the next reservation leading to waiters hurriedly and loudly carrying chairs over their heads and bumping into seated members of our party while they were dining. Surely there must be a better way to reconfigure tables without being so disruptive while other individuals are dining.

My wife and I have found La Masseria about four year's ago as we do frequent weekenders in Manhattan and stay at the Marriott Marquis Hotel. This restaurant has to be one of the top five best Italian restaurants in Manhattan. Always consistent and never disappoints in service and food. We really appreciate the fact that they opened another location in Palm Beach, FL where we own a Time Share, so obviously this is where we dine when we're in West Palm Beach, Fl. And again, they're always consistent and never disappoints in service and food at this location. A must try for anyone looking for great and fabulous authentic Italian cuisine.

I went to La Masseria for Valentines Day, and I found it to be over priced and underwhelming. The Fritto Misto del Marr appetizer was over priced at $25 and over cooked and rubbery. Our main courses both contained lobster which was also over cooked. My dish in particular was $40 for 6 small heart shaped ravioli. The drinks were pretty good, and the service was as well; however, for the price I expected the food to taste much better than it did.

Valentine’s Day celebration before going to Broadway to see Network. I appreciated the offer to check our coats. Very helpful. Although the restaurant was busy there were no delays at all. The water glasses were never empty, the cocktails were perfect and the service was wonderful. The chocolate covered strawberries were beautifully presented. I have already recommended La Masseria to my friends and people you just strike up conversation with.

The food was blend of the best of Italian favorites, each done expertly. Our fish was cooked to perfection, with a separate seasoned olive-oil based drizzle which added unique flavor. We dined in the main area which is comfortable, roomy, not too brightly lit. The chatter was a little noisy but subsided after 7:30pm when the theater-goers had left. The waitstaff was very professional, and helpful with our questions.

The restaurant was packed and had a great vibe. Staff greeted us and told us our table wasn’t ready yet; we ordered drinks at the bar and the table was ready in no time.
The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. Service was great and the food was delicious. We were here to get together with friends while we were all together in NYC but this is a great place for a pre-show meal, special occasion or just anytime you want a really top notch Italian meal.

I was surprised the pasta dish, which included broccoli rabe, was puréed. It was not as flavorful as I had expected. I would stick to keeping the broccoli rabe as is. Ambiance, wine and service were top notch!

Visited this lovely restaurant before catching a Saturday matinee (2pm) with my sister. The food was delicious. Try the stuffed mozzarella! You'll be glad you did. The lentil in olive oil, rosemary & garlic accompanied the bread and bread stick basket. Pasta (linguini with clams in white wine sauce and the cheese ravioli in a light tomato sauce) was very tasty! A happy birthday ice cream was served as a nice surprise. Thank to the waiters who sang to us in tune, too! Enjoy it! We did.

Nice lunch, but had to request restaurant week menu and I felt the servers attitude changed when I did. Sea bass was dry but potato leek soup was wonderful. My daughter loved her ravioli dish. Lemon sorbet was too syrupy and sweet.

La Massaria never fails. Excellent food and service. Tables for two are small and close. Many large tables for groups. Lunch was less noisy than our previous dinners. Get a balcony table for great viewing of most of the restaurant.

Our group of 6 had dinner at La Masseria during Restaurant Week. The special Restaurant Week menu featured a small selection of fairly tasty dishes; the portions were somewhat smaller than usual, consistent with the low price offered during Restaurant Week. The quality of each dish on the Restaurant Week menu was equal to what some in our party ordered off the regular full-price menu. The restaurant is very close to Broadway theaters.

A lovely pre-theater lunch. We took advantage of the Restaurant Week offerings, which were delicious. The ambiance was wonderful ... you'd never know you were in the middle of the busy theater district. The service was attentive, not at all rushed, and gave us plenty of time to enjoy our meal and get to the theater in plenty of time. I highly recommend a visit to this charming restaurant.
