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 food was good although the selection of food selection.A was limited, as usual , for Restaurant Week.I was pleasantly surprised that a dessert was included for the price of the meal.
Waiters were friendly and helpful although service was a bit slow.
Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our meal.

Had no issues - the food was good. Portions were small for an Italian restaurant. They don’t offer a discount for parking despite what the website says. Location was great.

Disappointing.
We went because of many positive reviews. Food was ok, but nothing out of the ordinary. I had the special (fettuccine with porcini mushrooms and shrimp). It was bland and contained like 5 shrimp and 5 mushrooms. My friends food was also not as good as expected. Service was incredibly slow. Server brought the wrong order, forgot about our drinks. He seemed overwhelmed with inside and outside tables. They need more help. I would not come back here. Unfortunately I do not recommend.

Food was really good! Restaurant week deal made it good value. Drinks were a little overpriced, but some of the best cocktails I’ve tried in the city. Really nice servers and great service. Right near Times Square, but noise level really wasn’t bad even sitting outside.

Met my girlfriend for dinner here. Service was excellent and very attentive. Food was delicious, we had the fried calamari and shrimp, the burrata special with smoked prosciutto. Then i had a stuffed veal chop special for my entree and my gf had fettucine with eggplant and mozzarella. Very good. Dessert was good as well, would highly recommend!

By far one of our favorite restaurants in the Times Square area. The flavors are incredible. I can never pass on the gnocchi and this time they were even better than the last time I remember them. The sauce was perfection. We also had the fettuccine with the lobster and it was a culinary delight! Everything here is done with great care and served with love. The service is amazing. This was our first time trying of the goat cheese cheesecake. It was outstanding! Hands down my favorite dessert and I can't wait to come back and have it again.

We had an early reservation before a show, so it was pretty quiet when we first arrived. As time went by, the restaurant got busy, but the noise level was still just fine. We had a couple of nice cocktails. We had the eggplant cakes for appetizer - they were good. I had the Orecciette - it was good, not exciting. Service was excellent.

Great birthday celebration. We chose to eat inside bc of the humidity. We had Scialatielli alla Siciliana (Homemade short cut thick fettuccini pasta with eggplant, tomato sauce & fresh mozzarella cheese) and
Agnolotti Piemontesi (Homemade large Veal & Parmesan cheese
tortellini with wild mushrooms sauce)…
Both delicious…. plus a “birthday” ricotta cheesecake. Good waiter service and expected meal prices for NYC.

Hands down the best restaurant in all of Times Square. Everything on the menu is fresh and delicious. The decor is rustic and cozy. The service is top notch. All around just an excellent dining experience. Can't wait for our next Broadway show so we can dine at La Masseria again!!

I didn't know this restaurant at all but they were SO accommodating and friendly. We had a show to catch and they made it so easy as of course we were late! we only wish we had more time to savor the atmosphere with an apertif after dinner and more time to savor the fantastic preparation of the delicious food that was served to us. I would absolutely recommend this little gem to anyone visiting NYC.

I am so bummed to say this ... but had been so excited for La Masseria and we were really disappointed. I've tried to "score" a reservation here a few times in the past, and never could. Then, Springsteen on Broadway, and totally surprised we got a reservation at La Masseria (duh! Of course we could get in - Broadway isn't "open" yet!!). Had heard the food was just incredible, and ... nope. The ambience and the staff were amazing. Place was maybe half full (but it was early). Perhaps we just ordered the wrong things, and we certainly had super high expectations. As a starter, the fried calamari / shrimp was ok not fantastic. A little bit undercooked and the calamari was a bit chewy (the red marinara sauce alongside WAS delicious). We had the ribeye w fries and the sliced pork chop w/ truffles. Ribeye was tough/chewy and not super flavorful which was such a disappointment (and we order it all the time elsewhere, ie DelFrisco's, so we know what a great ribeye is). Fries were flat-out terrible not even worth eating. Pork chop was pretty good -- but again we were expecting GREAT. Maybe we should have ordered the pasta but we were all trying to go light on the carbs. Again let me rave about the staff and service (extremely attentive!!), the ambience, the location. We may go back to give it another chance, just because there must be a reason everyone raves about it, and perhaps it was just an off night ... BUT we also felt for that price it should have been wonderful. It was pricey.
