La Masseria is one-of-a-kind dining experience with locations in the heart of Manhattan and East Greenwich, Rhode Island — and their newest opening, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

The inspiration for La Masseria comes from ancient farmhouses or "Masserias" of Southern Italy. The cornerstone of the restaurant is capturing Puglia’s cuisine and bringing it to South Florida and thus capturing the region's simple, classic dishes while utilizing the freshest natural ingredients harvested from land and sea.

We've been to La Masseria several times and it is usually exceptional. Last Friday was hopefully a rare stumble. All 4 of us decided to order from the Flavor Palm Beach menu and we decided to add the suggested wine pairings chosen by their Sommelier. This should have been an easy, smooth experience. The food was excellent as usual but the wine service was a struggle for us. We couldn't get across to the waiter we wanted their choices to pair with our food selections. The wines were shown on the menu so we thought this was easy but apparently not. He kept asking about it, we kept trying new ways to explain.

Then we asked that the first wine selection be served early so we could talk before the first course. Instead, the first course arrived immediately and we had ask 2 other servers to find our waiter and get our wine! This was followed by more discussion about wine for 2nd course, and again the food came out very quickly. We definitely had a sense of being rushed.

Also the wines were brought out in individual small carafes instead of poured in a wine glass which made for a very crowded table as some of us hadn't finished the first carafe when the second one came out with the super fast food.
It was just weird. I guess we'll try to avoid weekend dining from now on.

The food at this restaurant is fabulous. I commend the kitchen! The table service while friendly, polite and solicitous is amateurish for this price point. This is our second time trying this restaurant with the same opinion. Most notable is placing entrees while appetizer plates were not only still on the table, but still being enjoyed.

We decided to try out the Flavor Palm Beach menu at La Masseria and we were quite impressed. It was our first time in to the restaurant and we will be back. The food, the ambiance, the knowledge of the servers were all something to write home about, even for my boyfriend who works for an Italian company and travels there frequently. The stuffed branzino was melt-in-your mouth delicious and the stuffed mozzarella was unlike anything I’d experienced before. We will be back and and have already recommended it to friends. Thank you for a great experience.

I usually don’t write reviews but have eaten here a number of times with groups as small as 2 or larger 10 and always great. Just like restaurants I have enjoyed in Italy. I appreciate the consistency as many places can be hit or miss.

As frequently is the case, the service was terrible. The waiter clearly didn't have time to wait on us. It took 20 minutes to get a drink, 40 minutes to ask if we wanted to order. It wasn't even easy to get the check. They had music (which was good) that was too loud and intrusive. The food was good but not great. I had a totally tasteless Ceasar salad, with stale bread as croutons.
I have found the service to be consistantly inattentive and will not be rushing back.

Third time I’ve been there and this was the last time
Pasta was undercooked, bus staff kept rushing us offering us dessert menus as they were clearing salad plates
I had an elbow put in my face multiple times by the wait staff who couldn’t walk around the table to do something, instead they reached across my face and space.
This once great restaurant needs some serious etiquette training for their Sunday night staff
They have lost their edge as one of the best Italian restaurants in PBG

I haven’t had such a spectacular meal in a while. The salads were fresh; the meat the octopus with cattle fish was a work of art. The salmon perfectly cooked; the pasta dishes just like nonnie used to make

excellent northern italian cuisine...large selection of both appetizers and entrees...including great pastas...Their happy hour is quite good as well although they could use more than the bar to accomodate parties of four...I was originally told by someone that it was expensive and portions were small. But that is not the case the portions are quite generous and there is plenty to eat..Nice wines at good prices as well...I would absolutely reccomend it
