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.

Perfectly fine and serviceable in a tricky dining neighborhood. That's the best I can say. Food was fine, if a bit pricey. Service was fine, not great. Nothing particularly special about it. Personally, I'd just as soon eat pasta at The Palm nearby, or the more casual Mercato relatively nearby.

Pre theatre lunch. Very attentive servers. My husband and I shared the fried calamari appy, complete w/scallops and shrimp it was yummy. We both had pasta entrees, homemade gnocchi and pasta with mixed veggies. Both were nice size portions and very good. Coffee was great but apple dessert was bland.

Sempre interessante come ristorante. Il risotto del giorno non e' piu' come anni fa (manca quello all"Amarone) ma le altre scelte sono tutte valide. Non male e ci torno ogni anno molto volentieri. Insomma, per essere a New York merita di visitarlo questo ristorante italiano.

Wonderful dinner with great food and the best service we have had in ages! Love the outdoor seating area, with the great evening weather, it was a perfect place to dine. We started with the steamed muscles and clams which were seasoned nicely, no overpowering spices so the flavor was perfect. For the main courses, we had the linguini with clams in a lite garlic sauce and spaghetti with crab and arugula. Both pastas were cooked perfectly, do not like overcooked pasta. Both sauces were seasoned well with the garlic sauce bringing out the flavor of the clams, and the crab and arugula melting in your mouth - highly recommend both dishes. Top it off with a great bottle of Italian wine from their nice offering. Danielle was very attentive while not interfering with our conversation! We will definitely dine here again in the future.

We ate lunch here on a Sunday. Nice selection of wines and menu items. All three courses were wonderful.
We wish we had come here the night we went to the theatre.

I have a very good experience at La Masseria for fine food (I appreciated very much the entree and Spaghetti with vongole) where I found excellent service (staff careful for every customer need) and , a very pleasant atmosphere. I surely come back here!
