Italian
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.

Everything was great - cocktails, appetizers, dinner and dessert. Great for pre-theater.

Overall, the restaurant was good for pre-theater dinner because of its proximity to many Broadway theaters. Food, service and ambiance was good but not great. The value was fair for the location. Soup was served barely warm. The restaurant is on two floors, neither of which has a restroom. The restrooms are in the basement making it difficult for those who are not able to easily negotiate stairs.

Lattanzi is my go-to restaurant when seeing a Broadway show. I love the ambiance and the service and food are always excellent.

I've gone to Lattanzi for years and love the food. The fried artichokes are some of the best in the city. But I've always gone during non theater hours. I've moved away from nyc, but brought my children back to see a Broadway play. So of course, I booked a pre theater dinner at Lattanzi. I was utterly and completely stunned by the rudeness of the service. After we sat at our table ignored for 20 minutes, I even had to get up to go find a waiter to place a drink and dinner order. Maybe this is life these days in nyc, especially pre theater? But it is a shame.

Lattanzi is just a wonderful Italian restaurant. The service and the food are always impeccable. We had the asparagus gnocchi and the veal piccata. Devine!!!!!

We picked this Italian restaurant on Restaurant Row because it has been operating for 36 years! It is a gem! Cozy and welcoming, and you can have a private conversation even though restaurant was full. We split an insalata mists and each of us had fish - sea bass and swordfish- yummy! We split a Napoleon for dessert- the waiter said they are famous all over NYC for Their Napoleons and we can see why. We ate pretheater and they handled the timing beautifully. Waiters were nice, and great Italian wine list! Bravo!

It was my daughters birthday and I reminded them and still not a mention at dessert. Also the waiter was robotic and not friendly. Will not go again.

My recent repeat visit to Lattanzi was as delightful as the prior ones. The ambiance was calming and the service attentive. As always, the house artichokes were delicious. My seafood special and my friend's pasta were wonderful. We will be back.

A family get together the before seeing Hamilton! It was also a several month late 80th birthday dinner for my dad. We arrived and were promptly taken care of with coat check and a nice round 8 top. Everything was great from the wine and appetizers to the espresso and creme brûlée. Thanks so much for a memorable evening with family.

A pre-theatre favorite of ours for over 10 years. Home-made gluten free pasta!! Outstanding. Where else do they recommend a bottle of wine and offer to bring you a substitute if you don't like it!!??!! Be sure to take the time to understand the specials; they are always wonderfully unique. And the Napoleon is the best you'll ever have.

The food was not very good. We ordered appetizers and entrees. They brought everything out at the same time. Had to tell them to bring back the entrees to keep them hot while we ate the appetizers. The food then certainly felt like it was reheated. No apologies by the staff.
Would not recommend this restaurant.

Very nice decor and lighting sets you the right mood . The table for 4 where we sat was more like a table for 2 which made it tight for wine , plates and bread basket. I was pushed up against the wall leaving me little wiggle room for my 6’ 1” frame . Overall food was nicely presented and delicious. The homemade Napoleon was 5 stars .

The food was fantastic!! The only reason I couldnt give this restaurant 5 stars was the wait time for 3 ppl WITH a reservation was too long. We were not seated utill an hour past our scheduled time. Half an hour would have been acceptable. Too many resevations were for the same time as us...5:30p...and mutiple groups were up at the front complaining of same. Sadly, the unpredictability of seating would be the only thing keeping us from returning...especially w/ my entire family of 6.

My husband and I dined at Lattanzi to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. The food was excellent and the service was excellent as well. The wait staff was very attentive and we were greeted by several very welcoming people as we entered the restaurant for dinner. Lattanzi is the type of restaurant that we would most likely go to only to celebrate a special occasion as it is quite expensive. I did notice some people sharing a meal which we would consider doing in the future to keep the cost down. In any event, we were happy we chose Lattanzi for our "milestone" anniversary celebration as it did meet and exceed our dining expectations.

A great restaurant for pre-theater dining, it is located toward the end of Restaurant Row. The restaurant is deceptive. What one would presume to be a moderately sized restaurant is actually quite large with several dining rooms. The food is innovative and very good. Best of all, the staff is prompt, attentive, and courteous, with the exception of the occasionally rough busboy. This a factory. It is friendly, but they do give you your meal and send you out the door in a rather quick fashion. You never will miss a curtain eating here!
