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.

We popped in for a quick lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. We ended up ordering an appetizer, champagne and pasta. We lingered and visited. It was fantastic! Delicious food and great ambiance. We will definitely go back.

We ate here last year on our Spring Break trip and it was amazing! This year, however, was beyond disappointing. The gnocchi was truffle based instead of tomato based which gave it a bitter taste and the caprese salad was also changed...not for the better. My husband’s pasta was dry. Too many good restaurants in NYC to go here again.

Food was very authentic Italian. Wait staff knowledgeable and helpful. The fact that they spoke Italian as well made me feel back at home in Italy.

We had a wonderful dinner with terrific service. We were late due to our show running longer than expected, and it was no problem. Have been here before and will return!

this place is fantastic. Great service,professional but unobtrusive. The food was beyond wonderful. The salad was perfectly dresses with fresh ingredients. The pasta was lighter than air and so delicious this may be my new fave place. Alas the desserts looked wonderful but we had theatre tickets and could not try any. I will be back tho' for all these reasons.

Always a terrific experience. Great food and attentive service. If you can, go between 7:30 and 9:30 while everyone else is at the theater. It turns into a quiet neighborhood gem

Extremely efficient service. As per our request, both the salad and main course plates were divided between 2 of us in the kitchen- more than enough food (and very tasty). A little noisy, but a good experience overall.

I highly recommend this fabulous restaurant! We went pre-theatre and absolutely loved everything about our dining experience.
The buratta appetizer was sufficient to share between 4 people & we also had the carpaccio. The rib eye steaks were done to perfection and the vegetarian in our group had the prawns. Also amazing.
P.S. I also recommend the play we saw which was right across the street - Diana. David Bryan (Bon Jovi key board player and song writer for the musical Diana, wAs at the table next yo us with his family and friends for the opening night of previews)

The food was amazing. Wait staff was well versed and extremely accommodating in explaining the specials. Our experience was outstanding. We were served lunch and not rushed out. We had plenty of time to make our 2:00 play perform Highly recommend this lovely place and will be back soon
