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.

An extremely pleasant environment and a pretty dining room. The food is not bad - but nothing distinguished nor particularly memorable... and the prices are not low...

I've only eaten here once so I hesitate to give five stars, but everything on our table was absolutely delicious, a little unusual in a homey way (like tender lentils in olive oil to accompany the excellent bread basket), and accompanied by prompt, professional, knowledgeable and caring service. My lamb was perfectly medium rare, tender and rich in flavor. No one wanted to share so I cannot evaluate any dishes other than my own. My beet and mushroom salad was sumptuous and stood up to my pinot noir. My delice a limone (sp) was tart and creamy and absolutely luscious. The best lemon dessert I've ever had, hands down.

The Masseria is just a great restaurant with fine Italian cuisine. The service was superb and the food just great: true Italian cuisine with very carefully crafted dishes. The wine list is very high quality. The attention level of service was in line with expected excellence. Very highly recommended for very demanding customers.

Ate here prior to a performance at Lincoln Center in an attempt to move beyond the close by LC restaurants that we frequent. The high cost of just OK food doesn’t make this a destination restaurant.

The attention to detail and service was excellent! The waiter made excellent suggestions and so happy we took his recommendations. The food was so delicious. My only complaint was the very loud, very large table behind us which made carrying on a conversation difficult. They were celebrating the same as we were, so I can’t blame the restaurant. Would go back in a heartbeat!

What a find! Walked from the Essex house on a rainy night(about 10 minutes), and we were rewarded with delicious food in a beautiful restaurant. The decor is upscale but all feels authentically Italian, from the food to the waitstaff. Service was fantastic. The cuisine and many of the wines are from Puglia, all amazing. More pricey than a casual bistro, but the prices seem appropriate for all that you experience. Will definitely be back.

Masseria dei Vini is a glorious little slice of Italy on 9th Avenue. I highly recommend it and the truffle pizza is a MUST.

Excellent service. We came in fairly late in the evening but we never felt rushed. Food was delicious - the fried zucchini appetizer and the ricotta cheesecake were amazing

Frequent diner. Love the service and ambiance. A little disappointed this time with the Branzino and side of brussel sprouts. I felt the topping to the fish was too small and the sprouts were over done

Service a little uneven. Intrusive at times (stopping by repeatedly when trying to maintain conversation) and then a little absent at others. Food solid though not inspired. Overpriced a tad for what it was.

Pricey food and loud ambience interrupted an otherwise enjoyable meal at Masseria dei Vini. $14 for a salad with just 4 or 5 leaves of lettuce left me annoyed, and this probably impaired the rest of my experience. The atmosphere is so loud that we couldn't hear each other speaking at a table of 5. The string beans with tomato were delicious; the squid ink pasta was fine but not memorable. The desserts were fair. Not my favorite restaurant by a long shot. But reliably decent.

I have always enjoyed this restaurant, especially when Carlo was the host. Since then things have not been as special. The major complaint/question I have is “why does this elegant Italian restaurant serve mashed potatoes on every dish.”Surely some imaginative Italian chef can think of something more fitting.

Food and service was quite good. The noise level in the restaurant, however, is way too loud. Almost impossible to have a intimate conversation for two let alone for a table with more than two individuals.
