The restaurant is lovely (if you can find the front door to get in). Our food was delicious, but the service was extremely slow; and the restaurant was hardly full. Perhaps the viewing of the Royal Wedding, the FA Soccer, and the Preakness got in the way. Also, our particular server was hardly attentive; it took me 15 minutes to get a wine list and then had to wait for him to finally come back to take my drink order. The wine came in small decanters of which half was poured into my glass. When he returned to pour the other half, he placed his hand over the top where the wine is poured and then poured into my glass. He was a very nice guy.....just not very well trained. I may try again; perhaps this was just a less than successful night.
Never disappoints - service to food always perfect
La Masseria is very attractive.... unfortunately the food is mediocre but priced like a fancy upscale Manhattan restaurant ($40+++ entrées!). Our “special” appetizer was bland and uninteresting - arugula with some shaved Parmesan topped with a grilled Portabello cap which was supposed to be warm but wasn’t. My pasta was overcooked and drowning in a heavy red sauce the tasted like it came straight from a can. My husband had linguini in white clam sauce - his pasta was also overcooked. We were disappointed... hopefully they will up their game (new chef?) and perhaps add some lighter items (veal scallopini?) to their rather heavy and very pricey menu.
The waiter spilled a drink on my husband and although he apologized, he never offered to take the drink off the bill or offer to pay for his dry cleaning. I ordered the egg plant app that was suppose to come with hand made fetticini but I never got it.
Branzino Livornese to die for. Zucchini sticks from heaven and the artichoke salad was otherworldly
Wonderful as Always!!!!
Dylan was the best server we’ve ever had. Anywhere.
He was so welcoming, attentive, funny and really knew the menu items.
We loved the zucchini fries and our entrees of veal chop and chicken Milanese. Bread was also delicious and plentiful.
We sat on a high top outside. Delightful.
I have eaten at La Masseria several times and was very satisfied but will have to say this was not a good experience. Marginal service, mix up on the food and OK entrée.
Love the ambience, the wine list and breathe of food offerings remind me of my days in Campania and campi Flegrei. A tad noisy within the dining area however otherwise as good as the other sites in NYC and RI !!
Food was fabulous. Waiter would rather have been someplace else. No very friendly or helpful. Supporting staff was very good.
Best Mahi mahi I ever had. Very good ambiance. A classy restaurant.
Good food. Seafood bolognese was creative. Staff was efficient and friendly
The service was soooo slow that dinner took over 3 hours!!
Great food and great service. Excellent wine menu.
I would suggest the outside dining. We sat inside this time and for the6 of us it was TOOO loud to carry on conversations outside of any person other than right nrxt to us1
Never disappointed at this authentic Italian eatery. They have an excellent wine list, with a wide variety of choices in all price ranges.
This was the 5th time there and the only poor experience I have had. Pasta came out raw for the 2 people who had order a pasta dish.
We had ordered $250 worth of wine/drinks so I tipped only 10% of the total bill which caused the waiter to argue with me over a poor tip and how upset he was.
Had a marvelous waiter.
Appetizers were disappointing! Ravioli were just OK. Rabbit and dessert were excellent
Always amazing experience!! Can not wait to go back! Family style service environment.
I enjoy the feel of this NYC restaurant and the attentiveness of the wait staff. Food is high quality and wine selection is superb.
The only knock is I do not like their policy of calling the day before the reservation to confirm it . If I didn’t wish to eat there I wouldn’t have made a reservation !! They leave a voice message stating if you don’t call back within the hour they will give your table away. That is bizarre and rather disrespectful to their customers. If the policy was justified other restaurants would adopt it. It’s very off-putting.
But that should not deter anyone from enjoying this welcome addition to the PBG scene.
Wonderful food and service. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food. Authentic Italian food. Very attentive wait staff.
One of the best if not the best italian restaurant in palm beach
Exceptional food, comparable to Manhattan quality, shoulders above anything else in the Gardens. Great wine list ... staff was 1st class...Bravo to the owner, Eddie Ricci
Been there many times. This time the portion of fegato was significantly smaller than usual.
Fabulous food, attentive waitstaff
While the food was good, the constant parade of different servers couldn't keep the orders straight among our table guests. One guest originally order club soda to drink, then changed the order from yet another server to sparkling water. They kept trying to refill her glass with club soda all night. I was presented with ravioli when I ordered veal. They eventually got it right. While the food was good, this place is especially expensive for Italian food. There are lots of alternative Italian places with just as good food for less money. This is my third time at La Masseria, and likely my last given the alternatives in the area.
Great food, great service!!!
Relaxed atmosphere with adequate food and service. You can get a decent meal at above average prices. Not a go but a backup restaurant.
I was disappointed in the original table that we to be seated at. It was the worst table in the restaurant. The last time we were there they tried to seat us at the same table. There many tables available and we were seated at a better location in the restaurant
Only issue was ate outside and people we smoking next to us. Unpleasant if you don’t enjoy cigarette smoke while dining.
Great service and very pleasant attentive staff!
Very average for an upscale restaurant. Nothing special to justify the higher prices. Side dishes cold. Martinis warm although poured into chilled glasses. Good service.
fire the waiter and hire the busboy- waiter never served the bottle of wine and had NO interest in serving us. food was excellent.
Was terrific meal appetizers wine all of it
Always great. It was our fifth visit at la Masseria and we have been never disappointed. As a European citizen we are very familiar with Italien cuisine. This is one of the best you can get here. Maybe in Milano or Roma you’ll find similar ones. Try antipasti and Pasta.....awesome. Last but not least.....perfect service.
Mike was the funniest most attentive waiter I've ever had. Food was fantastic. Get the veal parmesan.
Very mixed review from our guests, first time meal, and our experience this time. Beet salad was different presentation from previous visit; quality not same, taste was fine, not excellent. Our main courses were average, nothing spectacular. Service is always 5 stars. I will go back. Maybe just an off day in the kitchen.
