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.

    My girlfriend’s birthday. The servers were very kind and helpful and patient! The food was so fresh and it came out so quickly since we didn’t get any antipasti. They mistakenly tossed our leftovers and because of that they made us a meal to-go of the dish they tossed. We greatly appreciated their kindness with that situation. Would definitely go back for another occasion.

    Enjoyed a wonderful lunch at La Masseria. It’s our favorite in the theater district. Arrived at 12:15. Seated immediately. It was restaurant week, so much husband had their 3 course special menu for 45 dollars! Started with burrata, then a great chicken dish and tiramisu for dessert. I had a ravioli dish for my entree. We also had two great glasses of wine. Total bill was like 120 dollars. So worth it! They serve you quickly so you can make your matinee if you’re seeing a show. Great restaurant! Will return soon!

    We booked late evening after a broadway show based on reviews however on first impression the staff seemed like they couldn’t be bothered with anyone. We were told abruptly “we don’t do options” when we asked if mashed potatoes could be substituted with fries instead. We worked around this by asking for no mashed potatoes and a side of fries instead (this must have been too much of a logical solution for the waiter to propose) or he just simply couldn’t be bothered as he could be seen leaving the restaurant with his bag 5 minutes later (clearly it was the end of his shift) The food was bland and all of the wait staff were clock watching. Extremely disappointing!

    very good bolognese sauce, but pasta a little overcooked. Dessert apple pie was an apple puff, not quite the same. Overall very good but the prices are overrated, 30$ the plate of pasta without taxes, 16$ the chocolate cake.... And they take a 20% tip by themselves and at the end ask for an additional tip...

    First the good. Staff was welcoming, friendly and efficient. However,food came out very quickly which made us think that perhaps it was precooked and then reheated. Certainly not cooked to order. Tables were squeezed together and tables for two were extremely small to the point where you could not fit bread plates and dinner plates at the same time . Very loud because so many people jammed into small space. If you want a fast , overpriced meal in order to make it on time to the theater , this is the place to go, Would not return.

Great food, elegant decor and friendly staff. Look forward to dining here again the next time I’m in Manhattan.

    We dined here because we were staying nearby. The service was perfect. Nicely paced between courses. The outdoor patio was quiet and lovely even though it’s not far from the buzz of Times Square. Loved the Branzino. They also very nicely and surprisingly sang a hearty, happy birthday to my daughter which was really sweet. We had a very nice time.

    Turned out to have a restaurant week offering. Three of us opted for that. Mozzarella in appetizer was tasteless rubber. Pea soup good. Salad good. Chicken breast main course tasteless. Pasta main course (thick fettuccine) good. Sorbet/berry dessert and tiramisu good. First ordered salmon but was asked how I wanted it cooked / medium rare???Maybe for tuna but I want my fish to be cooked through. Switched order to chicken. Lovely space, good drinks. Would like to go back but no reason to serve the poor quality mozzarella in a high end well thought of NYC Italian restaurant.

    Went to La Masseria for summer restaurant week. Beautiful inside with perfect service. The appetizer and meal were healthy, well prepared and very fresh and tasty. The meal was not heavy at all for an Italian restaurant . Loved the colorful salads that were a cut above ordinary restaurant salads. The ingredients were outstanding.
