Even though the staff never has a personality and the prices are high, I enjoy the quietness of the restaurant and the food is tasty.

This was the 5th time I had been to Lattanzi's and this was the only time I left disappointed. But we all left feeling like our food was "meh." None of us are food snobs. But the lasagna was "runny" with mushy noodles and the veal masala was very tough. The real give away is that the food came out too fast. It's obvious that in their attempt to get everyone to the theatre quickly and move the tables that all the food is sitting around. Nothing fresh about it. We got the lasagna faster than we got a martini. Is there perhaps a way the waiter can ask "are you in a hurry?" If so, you get the food that's sitting under the lights. If not, then you get something that is a bit fresher.

Food was mediocre. Service was rushed. Did a bait and switch with bottle of wine. We chose a wine but they claimed they did not have it and recommended another one that was supposedly more than the first but would only charge the price of the original one. Lo and behold the one they brought was inferior to the one we chose in price and taste! We brought this to their attention and was not offered any compensation!

I like to read reviews before I choose where to eat and this had great comments all across the board. I loved my dining experience here. The staff was very warm and engaging. The food was so delicious I can not wait to return! We shared the Tonnarelli Cacio e Pepe which was amazing. They gave us an appetizer portion which was enough for the two of us to share. We also shared the Insalata Mista which was so fresh and also very good. Oh yeah, the drinks were great and we actually had them refill the breadbasket, forgot that. For our entrees, I had the Halibut Special which was worth every penny and my boyfriend had the Veal Piccata which he enjoyed. I like mine better but it was still good. For dessert, we had Crème Bruleè which we both really liked!! A very delightful meal!!

It was a whole lot of ok, which is not what I expected from a restaurant row place and the reviews I read. Food was bland and cold, waiters had little customer service. Disappointed

This is my "go-to" Italian restaurant in the theater district. I've never had a bad meal here, and the service is excellent. Nice setting, and on restaurant row.

Nice restaurant on the famous street, W46 st known as “Restaurant Row” because there are so many places to eat. This was our second visit there in a month. We like it because it is close to Port Authority Bus Terminal. The ambience is lovely decorated with photos of Italy. Good good, reasonable wine list (except for a Brunello di Montalcino which was $400!!), and attentive service.

This restaurant served the best meal I had from all the restaurants on West 46th Street. It was the special of the day - lamb Osso buco with risotto & mushrooms. Absolutely delicious. The waiters were fine and the ambience is lovely.

Delightful evening made special with attentive and personable service. Emir was fun and had great stories to share. The food was excellent and it was interesting to hear the origin of the restaurant. The artichokes are a must!

We were able to relax and take our time. The Waiter did not rush us. The tortellini dish was delicious and the perfect amount. The linguini w seafood didn’t have much flavor so that was the only disappointment. The service was great. We were impressed that we got our meal five minutes after placing the order. It was great bc we were going to a play.

Cocktails we ordered were good and though the wine we wanted to accompany dinner was not in stock the recommendation was excellent.
Our appetizers were good (tuna carpaccio & sautéed artichokes) though the artichokes were a tad dry and needed more olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and maybe a little more garlic.
Entrees were excellent (branzino & veal Marsala).
We were then pleasantly surprised to get some complimentary port which was a very nice touch before our cappuccino coffee, tea and superb panna cotta.
We would certainly return again when back in the area.

Wonderful, quaint cafe. Attentive & helpful staff. Delicious Italian food. The house Cabernet was excellent! Wish we’d have had more time to fully enjoy as we were on our way to a 7:00 musical.

This dining experience was a mixed bag for me. The food was very well prepared, but I found the menu to be somewhat overpriced for what was offered. The service and the ambiance were excellent.

It had been many years since we visited Lattanzi. We had a good experience then and wanted to try it again. We are so glad we did! We had a table in the back room where it was quiet. Service was speedy, but well-paced for pre-theater. Our waiter was excellent, sorry I can't remember his name. My special requests were handled with grace and my meal was perfect, as were the other three dinners at our table.
I can't wait to return and hope it won't take another 10 years.

We went to see a Broadway Play. We were 15 min. Late because the play ran longer than we anticipated, I called to let them know we were on our way; they gave our table away our choice was be put in a room where no one else was or give us a table for two which they made for four in a very tight space; we chose the spot with no people.

WeAbsolutely loved the dinner..and dessert ...Absolutely loved the Service...Absolutely loved the place.. but whoever is at the computer watching a “Game” should be more quiet!
We were the first table next to him and we knew each score he kept. “ Out Loud”!🙄 It was our “ First Date “ too. I requested a cozy Corner. Duh...Why?!!

Overall, a good place on restaurant row for a good meal. I’ve dined here for both business and family occasions and it always is a good experience. This most recent time, the only concern was that the table was a little crowded for the number in our party. Food and service were as good as in prior experiences.
