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.

La Masseria
Theatre District Good Italian
La Masseria is conveniently located n the theatre district, and timely accommodates show-goers. The service is very pleasant and attentive. The dining room is pretty, BUT the tables are much, MUCH too close together with little space for waitstaff and patrons to maneuver, leading to a not quite comfortable dining experience. The food runs the gamut from delicious (the pasta with clam sauce was truly outstanding, al dente pasta cooked to perfection with tender clams prepared with a scrumptious white clam sauce) to very good (the gnocchi or grilled chicken with leeks) to mediocre at best ( the rabbit was not de-boned properly and was not tender and the veal Milanese was flavorless). The desserts and Cappuccinos were very good (ricotta cheese cake and chocolate cake were creamy, not too sweet and yummy). We like La Masseria, but they must remove a table or two as it borders on the uncomfortable.... and the pastas are too good, the room is too pretty, and the service is too attentive to spoil it all by being packed in like a rush hour subway car.

Have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed . The food is always fresh and so tasty. They have several specials and one is better than the other. Staff is always welcoming and accommodating they will alter the dish to suit your palet. Always a great experience

This place is a must for authentic Italian lovers. Was skeptical about a restaurant in the theater district, but luckily was not crowded with tourists. Make a reservation.

My brother recommended La Masseria for our pre- theatre lunch. I am so happy that I took his recommendation. From the service ( impeccable) to the food ( delicious) as well as the price ( perfect) I was not disappointed. Completely satisfied and will be returning!

This was our second time at La Masseria. The service and atmosphere are terrific. My wife ordered the lobster ravioli, which were great. I, however, ordered the crab risotto special which was bland, overpriced and disappointing. We would definitely go back, but I would stick to the regular menu next time.

Very pleasant lunch, although I wasn’t aware that the lunch special was $38.50,which seemed like a lot without being told ahead of time.
