Now in the 30th year, this "winning" Restaurant Row Italian is renowned for its "Roman style specialties". (Don't miss "those fried artichokes"), "gracious services" and "after the theater" crowd departs for a more relaxed meal.

My daughter and I were here for dinner after seeing a cabaret show at Don't Tell Mama, which is on the same block. We were about 15 minutes late for our dinner reservation, but were seated promptly and without an issue. The food is very good. My daughter had lamb chops and I had the pasta rolled with ricotta and spinach. We shared artichokes for an appetizer. The server, however, was not as attentive as I would have liked.

We topped it off with an authentic dessert and cappuccino. Don’t hesitate, you will not be disappointed.

Everything seemed to click perfectly. From arrival, to timing of drunk at the bar to amount of time to being seated to the overall experience of sitting for dinner. The staff was attentive, but also knew when to just let us be. The food was great and we had additive twists to each plate that didn’t take away from our main meal. Always enjoy our time here and look forward to coming back.

We went because we had tickets for a show for my son's birthday. Unfortunately, the food was not very good. The salads were fresh and nice, perhaps the best part of the meal. But the famed artichokes were soggy. The branzino was pale and mushy and came with baby carrots. The salmon was tasty but again the accompaniments were vegetables that you would expect from a steam table. The gnocchi were ok - not great, not terrible. The tartufo lacked a chocolate shell and the napoleon lacked sufficient filling .The service was good and we did make it to the show on time. But at these prices you can eat much better Italian food in NYC.

A lovely dinner with great service, but we were very disappointed that at 6pm on a Saturday night they had run out of artichokes. Considering it's what they're most known for, it was quite a surprise.

Nice place with great food. Unfortunately, our waiter Ermir was a total snob. We were visiting NYC and had friends recommend this restaurant. From the moment we arrived, our waiter treated us like we somehow did not belong in this restaurant. He gave us a menu that did not have the entree our friends recommended. When I asked him about the entree, he acted disgusted and brought us another menu. He called it the “richer” menu insinuating we couldn’t afford items from this menu. I can assure you we can. After he took our order, he never came back to check and see if the food was prepared the way we ordered. He also never came back to ask if we wanted anything else to drink. We didn’t even consider ordering dessert because we’d had enough of our waiter’s attitude.

I was very happy with the service and especially the low noise level which allowed us to communicate easily without yelling. We ordered one appetizer to share and had 2 main dishes, 1 dessert hichnwe shared and cappuccino along with two glasses of wine. Overall I think the prices were reasonable considering what many New York City restaurants charge. I did not feel rushed which was much appreciated and I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We went before theater and had dinner at 5:15 in order to make a 7 o'clock show and it was perfect timing.

We ate here twice during our brief stay in NYC. Both nights we were going to a Broadway show, and this place was very convenient and efficient. This is not a big pasta-fest Italian restaurant, and we were happy to be served protein and vegetable dishes. The veal marsala is especially delicious: tender and smothered with tasty mushrooms. The tiramisu for dessert was also a treat.

We were celebrating our anniversary, so we wanted the dinner to be special. We shared the mushroom ravioli to start, and it was ok but not notable. I ordered the sea scallops which turned out to be only two medium sized scallops. I considered the serving to be skimpy, but the flavor was exquisite. My husband ordered Bronzino which had good flavor and was well cooked, but it was ultimately rather bland.
My biggest disappointment was the unfriendly service. The hostess was as warm and friendly as she could be, but, unfortunately, that ended at the door. I thought that possibly it was only our waiter, but then I overheard an older man ask a different waiter if he could help him get a taxi. After a significant pause, the waiter agreed to see what he could do. Surely that wasn't the first time that the restaurant has had that request from a patron, and they weren't particularly busy at the time.

I have been going to Lattanzi's for 30 years and the quality of the food and the staff is excellent. I would rate them no. 1 Italian restaurant in the midtown area. Good for lunches and dinners with a good wine list. Prices are reasonable for the area. The manager has been there for most, if not all, of the 30 years that I have been going there. It doesn't get better than this.
