Pre/post Theatre
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.

We liked the ambiance vibe and the menu prices were reasonable but the food was not so great. The meatballs were hard as a rock and the pizza took forever and when it finally arrived , it was terrible!

We live very close by and dine here quite often. We will go long stretches without going there because this is NYC after all. I do wish there was more variety but the food is always great.

My husband and I have had lunch here three times in the past three weeks and Andre will never acknowledge us. He seems to go right over to his regulars or see how diners are doing but aside from pouring wine for us he seems to avoid us for some reason. It’s not like are looking to converse, but his lack of acknowledgement is offensive.

Overall we enjoy this place. Lunch on weekend afternoons are noisy due to a lot of kids and it’s small, but we enjoy the food and the service.

The food is always delicious, the dishes are all out of best quality ingredients freshly prepared, and the presentation is very nice. The staff is extremely friendly efficient and supportive. A special thanks goes to Andrea the manager and the Italian server, (sorry I forgot the name). Excellent wine list! Every time we go is a great experience!

This is an outstanding place for dinner. Whether you are on a date or a business dinner, this place is awesome. Service is always impeccable and the food is over the top. Don't decide on your entree until you hear the specials.

My daughter and I arrived after the opera last evening. The show had been wonderful but the meal we had was disappointing.
My feeling was that we had arrived too late. My experience with this restaurant was far better than the meal we were served. I felt that we were served by the skeleton crew.

They used microwave to heat the soup of the day, so the plate was very hot and the soup still cold

We will be back again and again and with guests. The food and ambiance were perfect and the location couldn't be better for pre-theater (Broadway or Lincoln Center). Wine list is amazing. Kudos to our server Michele for his expertise on every single question we asked him.

Absolutely delicious food. Service excellent. Sound was loud, and overall a little costly for the value. But a very nice experience. I had orchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe, which was hot, spicy and vibrant. My boyfriend had chicken with mozzarella and prosciutto, also very yummy. Nice delicious wines too.

Nice dinner before going to Lincoln Center. Easy walk to Lincoln Centre. We both got pasta and it was excellent. Coffee was kinda ok. Thought it would be better for an Italian restaurant.

Food is great. Noise is not. We would go much more often if it were less noisy. We have to shout at each other to be heard, which, of course, adds to the general commotion.

Dinner was a wonderful experience. Friendly, professional service, delicious food, I would say outstanding. We had the veal cotoletta milanesse. The best EVER. I had the same in all NYC restaurants, but nobody compare with the tenderness, perfect cooking, just a dream

This is very good restaurant, it strikes a very hard to achieve balance, in that it has high end food and service in very casual environment. I always recommend it to people who are looking for someplace to eat in the nieghboorhood, I believe most patrons are people from the surrounding area, it’s got that vibe to it.

We were seated right away with a reservation and the food was fantastic! Definitely try the gnocchi in truffle sauce.

The downsides: noise level was extremely loud and we struggled to hear each other throughout the meal and our waiter offered no specials.

Overall, I thought it was a good!

We were lured to Masseria based on the strong reviews, but the entire experience was underwhelming for us. First, the food was overpriced, and not just for Hell’s Kitchen. I am happy to pay a lot for high-quality meals, but some of the entree prices here ($48 for a slightly above-average venison dish and $39 for a basic risotto) are absurd. Compounding the value proposition is the service, if it can be called that, that we received during our visit. We felt that our server was trying to rush us out of there for some reason, which is contrary to the warmth that we felt at several other Italian restaurants in NYC (or anywhere else, for that matter). There are many better Italian dining options all over NYC.
