We had an early pre-show reservation on a Wednesday, so crowd was probably lighter than other times. Had a great table in the room adjacent to the bar (would recommend this room over the main room where you enter - less traffic and tables farther apart). Waiters were attentive and the food/wine was excellent. Would definitely return.

We went for a pre theater lunch. The ambiance is quiet and tasteful. Service friendly and efficient. The food was perfect and our bottle of wine just right.

Ambience was fantastic.
Food was not.
I booked this place online assuming it would have homemade, fresh pasta and ingredients.
It turned out to be the total opposite.
My dad ordered the cavatelli and I had the linguini with seafood, both disappointing.
My sister had the spaghetti with bolognese which turned out to be the best meal of the three. However, she first ordered the lasagna special, which ten minutes after ordering we were informed it was already sold out. We had an 8pm reservation.
Presentation was sloppy as well.
I ordered the house special artichokes. They were greasy and thrown haphazardly on the plate.
Really disappointing.
Would not recommend and would not return.

We spent the day walking the city and were really looking forward to a good relaxing meal. Immediately we felt judged as tourists. None of the staff was very friendly. We ordered appetizers, dinner, and dessert and were in and out of the restaurant in 30 min! I guess maybe they are used to serving food quickly for the theater goers, but I honestly did not feel welcome in this restaurant. Will definitely not go back or recommend.

A simple but good quality stop if you need a reservation in the Theatre District . Ask especially for the Jewish menu, and on either menu order the artichokes Jewish.

This place has been around forever and consistently delicious. The service is always on point and like they are ninjas who don't bother you. My only complaint which has never kept me from returning is that I find their chairs a bit uncomfortable. But like with fashion comfort is secondary to good taste ;-)

Average Italian in theatre’s restaurant row. Not bad, nothing wrong - just nothing stood out. We knew that going in - wanted a not-too-tourist-trappy meal before a show and Don Giovanni’s was booked up a week in advance at our time slot. Picked this place because the pre-theatre menu had many choices, which was a good selling point. Setting very nice, staff pleasant and attentive - food average. It was ok for a meal of convenience.

Four of us did a late post-theater supper here and even though we only had some appetizers, desserts and drinks instead of a huge meal the service was great and we all pledge to come here again. Everything we had was beautifully prepared and the space is lovely and well appointed with nice linens and everything. The artichokes were a highlight as was the cheesecake, light and fluffy and gently sweet. Perfect with the grappa we ordered as well.

We come here often before a matinee on Broadway. Lattanzi is consistently good. They always offer a pre-fixe 3 course lunch for a very reasonable price. It is a gem among all the other restaurants on Broadway lunch row (46th Street). Great service, very clean, excellent menu choices.

Food is generally good. Have eaten there many times. This was a HUGH disappointing meal. Service was mediocre, portions shrunk, overall a non enjoyable evening il. I will not return. Spoke to the owner and he couldn’t care less. Meals in the future will be without us!

I saw that there was a special menu that had sole listed. I asked the waiter if the sole would be available. He said yes. I asked if it could have the mushroom sauce that was on the scampi which was on the regular menu. He checked with the kitchen and said yes. I was with 3 other diners. Their food came out and I waited and additional 7 or 8 minutes for mine to come out. When it did it was the branzino and leeks which was a regular item on the menu. When I brought it to the waiters attention, he apologized and took it away. 10 minutes later he brings it back the same dish, but has taken the leeks off and replaced them with mushrooms with the same branzino I had sent back. I brought it to his attention again. He said that I was used to dover sole and this is their sole. It is filet of sole. I was insulted because, "filet" is not a type of sole. It is a cut, meaning cut off the bone. You could have a filet of salmon or a salmon steak depending on how it is cut. Dover sole or rex sole are types of sole, not filet. It the fish was definitely branzino. I was expecting him to remove it from the check, but he didn't and I won't be back.

We have had many quiet lunches here and less crowded dinners. Lattanzi had always been very accommodating for special diets. This Saturday night was too crowded, too noisy and the kitchen too busy to grant a need or two. .- Everyone loved their entree though! Will return, but maybe not for a Saturday night pre theater.

We ate at Lattanzi before going to see Moulin Rouge. Location was great as was food and service at the restaurant. The food, service and ambiance make this a great restaurant for dinner before one of the shows nearby. We will come here again when we are visiting NYC.
