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.

Relaxed atmosphere with attentive service and very nicely prepared food. I had cheese ravioli with shaved truffles and an octopus and pear salad. Two people one drink and a dessert $156.

I could not believe I have been living only two blocks away and never noticed this restaurant before. The front of the building is under construction and the entrance is obscured by the scaffolding. I have to say one of the best Italian restaurants I have been in NY. The food and service are great as many other restaurants in the city. What makes it stands out is the deco and spacious table setting which is rare in the midtown.

Better than average Italian food, at slightly higher than average prices. Worth it for the excellent quality of the ingredients (tomatoes, mozzarella, orata, all great) and the finesse of the execution.

We visited Massaria dei Vini after seeing My Fair Lady at Lincoln Center. We were worried that arriving at 10:15 pm might make our visit less than enjoyable. On the contrary, our service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. We often eat at La Masseria on 48th Street and found this experience every bit as delightful.

Took my mom for birthday celebration. It’s a very nice environment with very good quality Italian food. A bit pricey but I think it’s worth for the celebration.

The food was excellent and our out of town guests were impressed. But the staff was hovering and clearing food before we were finished. We felt rushed and were interrupted nearly a dozen times for insignificant reasons. It became annoying and we couldn’t enjoy ourselves the way we should have been able to.

I took a customer and his family here ,along with mine over Christmas vacation- we all loved the food and service so much that we had to return on our summer trip. I had their version of zuppe de pesce - which i have to say was the best I have ever had. Pork Chop was the best my son has tasted - along with the Duck Breast. Excellent wine menu and service that is 2nd to none ! Love this place .

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were so glad they did. We had a marvelous evening with great food. Our server, Luca, was personable, friendly yet professional and quite knowledgeable about wine. We had a lovely, leisurely dinner and never felt rushed. The restaurant was loud but thankfully it was from conversation and not intrusive music.
Definitely will return on next NYC.

We returned to the same excellent experience. The staff, front and back, are ultra professional AND nice. The commitment to true Italian ingredients and thoughtful preparation makes the food sing. The daily specials are almost as wide as the main menu, which IMHO means fresh daily ingredients. The wine list is wonderful to mine. Many great values with many more luxury options.

This is a multi dimensional restaurant. Pre/Post theatre, special occasion, or just friends getting together. It all works.

The only critique would be noise level. The background audio playlist is superb. The space acoustics make it too loud.

We are fans!!

Autentico: the octopus salad was like the proverbial postcard greeting: Wish you were here. Spaghetti con vongole (Manila clams) was a novel riff on tradition. And, while my wife enjoyed her branzino, I was underwhelmed by lackluster flavor of the rabbit. They have a wine list with hidden gems and servers who know their stuff.

Extremely and unpleasantly noisy at dinnertime. Could not have conversation. Of 2 dishes, the artichole salad was delicious but the eggplant rollatine was a very small portion and okay but nothing special. Overall, the food was not worth the high prices. The coffee shop at the corner has equal quality food for much less money.

This was the first time we brought these friends to dine at Masseria dei Vini and they enjoyed the meal immensely. Our only complaint was the noise level made conversation difficult.

Before I made reservation I looked at menu on line. The prices in the restaurant were at least 50% higher than they show online. Definitely not worth it. In addition the dish I ordered was supposed to come with ratattouille. Without telling me that they did not have it they substituted plain spinach. Not very satisfactory at all - ..........
wine was good.
