It's a lovely restaurant on Restaurant row in the theater distract so very convenient- the menu is good- but the food has an off taste probably from odors in their refrigerator- they need to fix that - very off putting.

What a wonderful place. My husband and I go every year and we are never disappointed. The owners are involved and so nice. The food is simple but flavorful and the wine is outstanding. If you want a taste of Italy in New York this is the place

The food was average, we definitely weren’t impressed. The noodles were over cooked and the presentation was sloppy. Service was terrible!! My wife and I were there approximately 45 mins because the waiter asked us to leave. He said they needed the table, however as we were leaving no one was waiting and some tables were empty. We were more than happy to leave because we felt unwelcome. We will never go back there!!!

Slow on service....did not pay attention to time even though I mentioned our 1pm curtain call for the matinee....sever had an issue with his credit card machine and took forever to tell us....he indicated to me that he does this all the time so it was my fault no his and not all personable about it....I know it was his problem because shortly after we used the card at the theater and they had no issue....we made our seats with 5 minutes to spare....would not recommend this place to anyone......very unhappy

We have eaten here many times. Perhaps they overbooked. It saddens me to say it was not a good night. Poor service, food not great, cramped and noisy. I would still recommend because everyone has a bad night once in a while.

They do a great job with pre-theater. Seafood salad, veal and striped bass specials were outstanding. Excellent pacing too. We didn’t feel rushed through our meal but finished in plenty of time before 8:00 curtain

First time at Lattanzi and it will not be our last. Food was awesome and the restaurant exuded a nice, intimate atmosphere. It was a most enjoyable dinner. Is the special occasion inquiry a standard with all Open Table reservations? Nothing was mentioned by restaurant so why ask the question in the reservation process?

Charming atmosphere, nicely spaced tables and wonderful service do not make up for the very run of the mill food nor the astronomical prices. At half price, this is still not a place I would return to (especially with Becco right next door.) I would try it again only if they completely overhauled the kitchen staff and cut prices.

My favorite theater district restaurant -- roman artichokes, veal milanese and strawberry zablaglione. Great wine too -- Italian. it feels like old NY -- sit in the back room as it is quiet and spacious. Service is great.

This was our first visit to Lattanzi in many years. On a scale of 5.0 being tops, I would rate the food as 4.5. The carciofi alla Giudea and the risotto all Milanese were outstanding; the braised lamb shank and the tiramisu were good. We really appreciated the an impressive variety of very good wines available by the glass. The service was excellent and the noise level was comfortable.
