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.

I have been to this restaurant many times and each time I had a wonderful experience. This last time on Easter Sunday we ventured out to our first dining experience within the restaurant due to the pandemic. It was the most pleasant experience we have had so far. The service was impeccable and the food extraordinary, as usual. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the hotel and theatre district by far. Because of the reduced turnout iy gave us a great deal of time to get to know our waiter and busman. It made our experience even more joyful on this special holiday.

Perfect Italian place. Wait staff was awesome. We started with home made Buffalo Mozzarella cheese and Prosciutto, a single portion was so big they split it for us. Followed with meatball appetizer. 2 huge meatballs full a flavor with lovely homemade red sauce with peeled tomatoes that was excellent. Followed by homemade pasta dinners. I asked for Carbonara (not on the menu but they made it and it was to die for). She had the most popular pasta called Bucatini Vecchio Roma which is homemade pasta with bacon onions cheese and a whole lot of LOVE mixed in. Simply incredible. Finished off with all 3 desserts. they were each awesome. Tiramisu, chocolate cake and ricotta cheese cake. Will come back again soon. Ate inside. Warm and full up to their 25% so get a reservation. two thumbs up. Great staff as well. photos of all we had so you can see how good it was

The staff could not have been more accommodating. I loved the food. It was too cold for my baby on the night We went that we cut our night short but the staff let us try different tables before we made that call. I was so happy with the service that I left a larger than normal tip.

This is the way to do outdoor dining! It was a freezing cold and rainy night and I felt like I was inside! Super warm and toasty and a great spot for outdoor dining in NYC! Also the fresh pasta was delicious! I will be retuning! Huge pasta portions and moderately priced!

The food, the atmosphere, and the staff were just awesome. We split our dinners and the staff prepared the food as shared before they brought it to our table. The pasta was yummiest and the burrata and prosciutto best I ever had. Fresh and creamy with the trimmings.

The food at this restaurant was amazing. Probably the best Italian food I have ever had (that’s saying a lot coming from someone who grew up in a huge Italian family.) Service wasn’t outstanding, but it wasn’t bad either. Would definitely go back.

La Masseria is an excellent Italian Restaurant that consistently delivers high quality food and service. Indoor dining follows Covid 19 protocols that include shields between tables and more than adequate distancing between tables.
The menu has many fine choices and there are good options for those who prefer fish.
Excellent deserts.

We were celebrating our 9yr anniversary and wanted to try out the Masseria family if restaurants. Our experience was amazing! From the moment we walked into the restaurant until our final bite of our dessert, La Masseria delivered from all angles!! The food was fantastic! Drinks were delicious! And the tiramisu was probably in my top 5 of bear ever tiramisus. Says a lot because I used to maitre d’ at a Michelin star restaurant in my day. So I would know quality and this was fabulous! Thanks to Omar (our captain) and his fellow colleagues for a wonderful celebratory dinner for our anniversary! We will be back!

The food was decent and the service was good. I was very disappointed with the artificially inflated bill. If you happen to eat here, check the bill carefully and be very vigilant of the specials. You maybe very surprised by what they charge you for them. Buyer beware. Disappointed.

Service was terrible. Saw our waiter maybe once other than when he took our order. They were not very conversational and often ignored us when we try to ask for help.

Waiter said to us "The service is pretty bad here". Server attended to other tables around us and only came over when beckoned. Food was overpriced for simple Italian meals. Fish of the day was undercooked

Me and my boyfriend wasn’t really impressed with their service. I got the eggplant cake, tasted ok but it would fill you up like you had an unhealthy food. Tomato in Insalata Caprese was not good at all. My boyfriend ordered Scialateilli Alla Sciliana but he couldn’t even eat it because the fettuccini was so think and poor quality. I had the Orata del Mediterranaeo but the fish crusted in a very unhealthy way and the texture of fish was so poor . They should improve all the items I mentioned in their menu or they will lose their customers

I had the most amazing dining experience at La Masseria. When I arrived, the host greeted me by name and made me feel so welcome. They have a lovely selection of outdoor tables, removed from the sidewalk. I started with the misticanza salad, which was generous in size and delicious. I then had the cavatelli with shrimp, which was amazing. And I finished with the apple crostina with ice cream, which was out of this world. The service was outstanding. One of the finest Italian eateries in NYC.
