About Masseria dei Vini
Masseria dei Vini (Masseria of Wines) is the new venture brought to you from the La Masseria Team.
Restauranteur Pino Coladonato, Peppe Iuele and Enzo Ruggiero have teamed up again with Interior Designer Libby Langdon, bringing you a modern update version of "Masseria". In the region of Puglia, in South Italy, Masseria were Fortified Farmhouses, and many of them now have been transformed into Restaurants or Hotels.
Executive Chef Pino Coladonato, native of Rutigliano (Bari), has created a menu that blends traditional with modern without overpowering one or the other.
The Menu features typical dishes from Puglia, such as "Crudo", the Italian word for "Raw", made with fish and shellfish, a lot of fresh homemade pastas and Ravioli.
The menu also offers Gourmet Pizza Neapolitan style.
The Restaurant offers an extensive wine by the glass program and a large selection of wine bottles, mainly from Italy, but without ignoring the rest of the world.

Masseria dei Vini Ratings and Reviews
My wife works in the neighborhood and has eaten here on several occasions and recommend we have dinner before our show. The moment we walked through the door we were greeted by warm smiles and a genuine “buono serra”.
We were shown to our table and introduced to our waiter who was excellent, professional and friendly throughout the evening.
The service and the meal were excellent in every way. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem!
We have been to many Italian restaurant and being Italian from Italy we know what good food is all about. Overall the food is above average for Italian NYC restaurant. We love the wine list with several notable wines such Solaia, Tignanello etc. Service was good and courteous and not pushing the table for another seating which is always a plus in NYC.
Great job at managing this restaurant.
The rather young host was not welcoming and rather supercilious in seating us, resulting in our lowering our usually very good review to just good. We are angry enough at his treatment of us that we may very well not go back, even though we have previously gone there a number of times.
Food was good, since the pasta was home made we all enjoyed the freshness. The price was fair. The wine selection was terrific and priced accordingly. Our waiter recommended a great bottle and all loved it - especially the price point. The only draw back for us was the appetizers. Not to appetizing and WAY WAY WAY over priced. Example - meatballs - we asked how big and how many for $25, waiter said - 2 very large and showed size with hands enough for 4 people. . SO not larger than a golf ball - waste of money.
We made a 2:45pm reservation so we were pressured to order and eat quickly. We understand that the staff would want to change shifts and close out, and we rushed ourselves to finish quickly but would have preferred they don't accept 2:45pm reservations at all if it means we have to sacrifice an otherwise enjoyable atmosphere.
We enjoyed our meal at Masseria dei Vini. The room was very 'energetic' which made some conversation difficult but the delicious food and service made up for it. Marco, our server, made great suggestions when asked and was able to help us sample more offerings by splitting portions. The wines were perfect for our meal and the timing wasn't rushed. The homemade pastas were interesting, light as a feather and delicious. We look forward to returning.
I chose this due to its location near Lincoln Center, as we were coming after a show. The food was fabulous, but the service was even better than that! The "crispiest" staff I have ever seen!! Extremely professional!! Will definitely recommend and hope to enjoy again.
Really enjoyed our evening at Masseria dei Vini... beautiful restaurant with outstanding cuisine. The restaurant staff was very welcoming ..we were seated right on time for our 7:30 reservation... As we walked to our table I mentioned to the manager that it was my friends birthday and he assured me he would let the waiter know... he did and they brought a wonderful dessert and sang Happy Birthday... all in all it was a lovely evening of good food, wine and service enjoyed by three friends. I would definitely return.
Food has been great at this restaurant in the past, and with one exception was great this time as well. Sadly, despite our reservation at 6:15p, we were kept standing in the entryway until 6:50. I thought it might have been nice if we were at least offered a drink, but we were offered only a very perfunctory apology. Additionally, my dining companion disliked his dish and barely touched it. We are always reluctant to complain, so we didn't --- but we hoped the waiter would notice and ask if there were a problem, but he did not.
I took a customer of mine and his family (2 childern- 16 & 10) the waiters treated them like everyone else- the service was excellent - the food was outstanding ! I love zuppa de pesce - they had a mixed seafood and pasta dish that was the best i have ever had . My wife had Halibut- she said was also outstanding. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food .I will definitely go back the next time i am in NYC !
It didn’t start out well. We waited almost 35 minutes for our table to be ready, even though we had a reservation. If I were going to be late, I would have called the restaurant. They could have easily called the upcoming reservations to ask if we could push things back a bit. We were not the only parties crowding the entry. If we were 35 minutes late, they would have given away our table. After about 15 minutes, we asked the bartender for water. They were provided with a testy smirk. No offers of a round of drinks for our patience from any of the very junior-looking and overwhelmed front-of-house staff. Once we were seated, our servers were terrific. Unfortunately, my salmon tartare starter was frozen in the middle. I had to let it thaw. All three Items in my fish/seafood grill were over-cooked. Sautéed spinach was delicious. The Puy lentils served with the bread were a really nice touch. The other diners had no complaints about the food and my husband raved about his orecchiette. Overall, a frustrating and underwhelming experience. With so many good spots in Hell’s Kitchen, I can’t see giving them a second chance.
The food at Masseria dei Vini is truly excellent. The fried cod appetizer (baccala) was delicious and had the taste of Christmas. Great salad. My wife had the very good triangular ravioli. And I had an excellent whole branzino that waitstaff filleted to my order. Wait staff was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. So why only three stars and no recommendation? This was, at least on this evening (Christmas Eve), the loudest restaurant we have ever visited. The noise level was beyond loud to the point of ear-splitting. This level of noise significantly detracted from what should have been a great experience on a special occasion for us. It appears that this restaurant caters to locals and not so much to visitors. The Owner/Maitre D' paid lots of attention to many tables, but did not bother to stop by our table even once. And, while we made our reservation (on Open Table) many weeks ago, we were given one of the least desirable tables in the house, next to a very loud family gathering of 16. So, despite the excellent food and service by the waitstaff, our experience was a disappointment. There are too many good restaurants in New York. So, we are unlikely to return, and cannot recommend to other visitors.
Food was average, artichoke and pistachio salad had shells in the dish and far to many nuts to the point of over powering dish. Filet Mignon was delivered under cooked and not as requested had to be re-fired. Overall a lackluster event. Not terrible, service was fine, but not memorable in any way.
The restaurant was very noisy overall. They seated my son and I at a table close to the bathroom which was unappealing and unfortunately, left us to be forgotten in terms of service (had to ask three times for the check at the end). The burrata and tomato special was very good but we asked to share one order as we were not starved and it looked like they split two orders for us. When I asked if it was two orders, our server said no but when we got the bill, it was for $36 which we were clearly being charged for "2" .... This was annoying and a bit deceitful. The rest of dinner was pretty ordinary. Very expensive for what it was worth. We came here since it is close to my son's apartment but we both will not come back again.
Good food. Excellent service from our entry & throughout the meal. All of the staff was personable, friendly and knowledgeable. We went before a Jazz at Lincoln Center concert as it’s half a block away. They had us out in plenty of time without feeling rushed.
Definitely recommend this restaurant.
