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.

Very attractive and charming space. Very good food. Home made pasta in the bolognese with sausage, meat balls and short ribs. We split as an appetizer. Veal milanese with mozzarella split as main course. Portion was ample and tasty. Food is expensive, but not outragous. Wonderful service. Thoroughly enjoyable.

We often eat at La Masseria when we travel to NYC to see a show. This time, I was with three other friends for lunch before seeing Hadestown. La Masseria never disappoints - the cocktails are excellent, the wine list is great, and the food is beyond compare. Our waiter, Guiseppe, was delightful - friendly, helpful and super attentive. We have never been disappointed at La Masseria!

Overall our party of nine was delighted. I've been to La Masseria many time and alway had the Orrechette Barese Vecchia. All other dishes both appetizers and entrees were great. Only glitch was our waiter Eddie was a bit inattentive. We had to initiate most things. Menus, appetizers, ordering etc.

2nd visit in a month, both were pre-Broadway matinee, both for five people. Again, service was the primary issue, one person got the wrong meal, but due to time constraints, made no fuss. He liked what he had, BTW. Had one special diet person who had spoken to the chef in advance, and was satisfied with her meal. The food was very good, as it was on our first visit. They do a very fine job with seafood.

Overall it is a fine choice in the Theater District.

The restaurant can be crowded pre-theater, but we were dinning at 7:45pm so all theater goers had cleared out and we missed the hustle and bustle of that time. Our wine was great, salad of frissee was crisp, flavorful and fresh. We also ordered the fish special of the day, which we shared. More than enough for two as the portion was quite generous. Cooked to perfection over wonderfully sauteed spinach. By 9:30pm the restaurant started to fill again with post theater diners.

From the moment you walk in, you feel as you stepped into a building from Italy. The food was amazing and the ambiance was perfect. The staff were knowledgeable in the menu, excited about the ingredients, which make the food even better. Highly recommended by many New Yorkers. I am glad we took their advice.

A friend and I enjoyed a pre-theater lunch at La Masseria. The soft shell crabs were a special and we both enjoyed them in their meunière. We also shared a salad Masseria as our appetizer. We enjoyed the crusty bread and shared a wonderful tiramisu for dessert. It was a special and delicious meal!
