We got to the restaurant about 6:10. After a long wait, appetizers finally came out. Our dinner didn’t arrive until 7:30 after we inquired a number of times as to why it was taking so long. I asked for pasta with only olive oil and asparagus. I specifically said no pepper, but my pasta which was supposed to be very plain came with red pepper flakes on it. Thankfully I noticed it before eating the pasta with the red pepper flakes as my throat can close from pepper.

We have eaten a number of times at Lattanzi before and never had an issue. However after this experience I will not choose to go back.

I would suggest that some place on their website or outside their entrance or even on the menu that they say they do not take cash, only credit cards. I think that is a polite thing to mention for out of town customers. Otherwise, the food was outstanding! The atmosphere was fun, but very loud. Busy place. We were there on a Saturday night, so very crowded but managed to get a 7:30 reservation.

We were lucky enough to have the table outside - which made us feel like we had the restaurant to ourselves. The food and service were both amazing!

Food was fine. Service was poor. Our order was obviously forgotten. Nobody apologized or attended to us unless we flagged someone down. We are not tourists. We will not be returning nor recommending.

The food just wasn’t very good. Veal piccata was alright, but a veal Milanese special was not good at all. Their Napoleon for dessert was delicious. Our server was excellent, but the food was just not up to par.

Lattanzi isn’t a treat. We had a pasta appetizer that was perfect. My veal dish tender with a great red sauce. My wife’s branzino grilled to her liking. Great location but worth traveling to.

Food was excellent.
Waiter not so much. Throughout the evening, he maintained a slightly condescending attitude towards our party. He was visibly perturbed when not all of us ordered alcohol.
When the bill was presented, he had the audacity to tell us the tipping guidelines recommended! It is no business of his how much we choose to tip! Plus, we are not idiots.
We paid in cash & when he took the check away, he opened the folder right away as if to make sure we tipped “appropriately”.
We left 20% ONLY because we knew that the tips are distributed amongst the bussers and we didn’t want to penalize them.
We WILL not go back, delicious food or not.

The food was just okay, the prices a little high, although I guess that's expected on restaurant row in NYC. We've had better for less in that neighborhood.

Classic and exceptional Italian restaurant in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen next door to Broadway. Service is classically astute and food is classic with homemade pastas, fresh fish options and a nice wine list. Great for intimate dates, business dinners or family affairs!

Reservations at 5pm before a 7pm theater show- worked out perfectly with location and timing. So happy to have real homemade pasta and delicious food in a regular restaurant instead of some touristy, gimmicky chain. Wonderful food and wonderful service! Will definitely come again and recommend to friends and family.
