Pre/post Theatre
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.

Everything was amazing and the staff so helpful. We had a mix up of reservation, which was my fault, but they got us a table anyway. I had a vegan pasta dish that was great. Will definitely come back!

The food was AMAZING. I had the penne pasta with bacon and mozzarella cheese in a cream tomato sauce. Everything about this dish was fabulous. I also had the ricotta cheesecake which was phenomenal. Overall I was extremely impressed by the food. The service was also excellent. From the moment we stepped in we felt very welcomed. Would highly recommend

50th birthday dinner in NYC with a friend. Service was amazing and the food was delicious although portion size was huge! Sadly sat at side by the heating which cannot be changed by restaurant so overheated and was really uncomfortable and had to stand outside to try and call down! Such a shame because then I wanted to leave sooner than I would because of temperature. Otherwise great place for dinner!

I was very disappointed in the seafood-it was not fresh at all-red snapper and shrimp.

Felt like we were rushed to turn over the table. Food is very good. My family is in the food business and we are from The Foggia region and thought we would give it a try. Too quick to try to get me out the door to get my endorsement.

We enjoyed our dinner at La Masseria very much. The food was very good and the service was attentive. I had mentioned that we had theater tickets, and they made sure that we were served our meals promptly so that we did not feel rushed and got out in enough time to walk to the theater. Our only complaint was that the person who was busing our table asked us about four times, before we were even served our entree, if we were done with the bread basket. Were they short on bread baskets?

Always a wonderful place to meet friends. The staff is so genuine and friendly. And the food is always terrific. the Orreciette with Broccoli Rabe and Veal Milanese are standouts. Watch out for the "Happy Birthday" singing waitstaff...they are a complete Broadway chorus rolled into one song!

We had a good meal, though the prices were rather high - even for NYC. The burrata salad special was very good, but the cost for a salad was obscene. We enjoyed our entrees and found them well prepared. The wine selection was good and our waiter very attentive. I’d go back, but probably stay away from specials. Stick with the pasta dishes, which were well prepared.

Amazing service, delicious/authentic Italian food - would highly recommend! The front entrance was a bit hectic with people checking-in/waiting to be seated and the bar is located near the front as well which created some traffic, so best to have a reservation to be sat quickly and avoid the wait!

They gave us the worst table in the house near the back, next to a door with strong draft from the ventilation system.

Great restaurant and great food. However, in the middle of the dinning room it was impossible to speak with my wife and we were seated next to each other.

Luckily they accepted us to move to a table closer to the edge of the room.

The ONLY place to eat truly fine Italian food in the Theatre district but I go often anytime I am near midtown! The pasta sauces are insanely good. Pasta always cooked to perfection. I just can’t order anything there but pasta- not because it’s not wonderful it’s because I must eat what I consider some of the best pasta places in this entire city of excellent Italian food!!!!!!
I won’t tell u what pasta dishes to order ALL are amazing!!!!

We highly recommend La Masseria. The service was excellent, accommodating our early arrival and then on pace for a wonderful meal experience. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their meals, which started with appetizers, main course specials of the day and ending with dessert. The wine selection from the bartender while we waited for our guests was so good we bought another bottle for the table. A great experience in a convenient location.
