Still my pre-theater go-to, not that I wouldn’t go for any other occasion. Spectacular food, charmingly served. It’s a restaurant experience that’s disappearing from NYC: expensive without being pretentious.

food and ambience were great. loved the flat bread with olive oil they bring to table. the bronzini oreganata was very good as well as teh fettucini bolognese. tiramisu for dessert was good also. the only thing that went wrong was that my husband's cappucino came out late and it was room temperature. my husband thought the service was a bit abrupt but i reminded him this is a theatre district restaurant and they are mindful of people going to shows. otherwise it was a perfect night!

It was our first time at Lattanzi. We decided to check it out before seeing Moulin Rouge (the location is perfect). Absolutely outstanding food. The Risotto Alla Milanese is a must. The service was fantastic as well. The wait staff were so attentive to our table and our glasses were never empty. Will definitely go again

I’ve been to a lot of great Italian restaurants - Lattanzi has no wow factor. Food was ok. Service is ok. I expect more.

Pleasant, quiet restaurant with soft, appropriate background music and a nice menu and prompt, attentive service. All food was tasty and presented well. Wine chosen was not available and the recommended substitute was not the best. Prices border on steep, especially for desserts.

I went for a restaurant week everything tasted delicious but it was not $60 worth of food. The wine was also $15 a glass. Amazing service though

Amazing dinner at Lattanzi. First of all, the restaurant is so charming and cozy - feels like you're taking a step back in time. I started with the lentil soup - which was delicious. I then had the branzino oregana - fantastic. I finished with the Napoleon pastry, which was out of this world. The service was outstanding. And even though it was a cold and quiet January night, there were a few celebs dining there - which made it all the more fun. I look forward to returning soon.

Beautiful restaurant in an awesome location. Very romantic!
Our appetizer and entree's were superb. My lasagna was so fresh that it melted in my mouth.
This incredible food however ended there. We were both disappointed with the dessert. I had their twist on a cannoli which was two small hardened cannoli shells that crumbled upon cutting. Within them was a tasteless cheese filling. My wife ordered the Tiramisu which was more like a custard cake.
We were saddened as had it not been for the dessert, this would have resulted in a 5 star review.

So delicious! That signature artichoke…. although a tad greasy (which may have added to the great flavor and crispy edges) was out of this world… The special lasagna was light and creamy. Yes, I said light when describing a lasagna dish! Amelio, the owner/ manager was so welcoming.. I will be returning ASAP I can assure you.

Made a reservation for after a 2 pm show. My family gave a recommendation. The staff was attentive from the start, gave suggestions, the pace of service was very good. We had pasta meals which were served hot and very tasty. Had the home made chocolate ice cream. Fabulous. Never felt rushed.pricing was appropriate. Close to theatre and hotel on a frigid day. Plan to go back!

The tables are far apart and you can have a conversation without raising your voice.
The entire table had seafood appetizers and entrees. Food was fresh, flavorful with ample portions. Desserts were also great. Service was attentive.

Excellent, attentive service. Food was basic, simple, Italian fare, but nothing special. Did not like that I could taste the powdered beef bouillon used in the sauce for the Portabella mushroom ravioli.
