We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time. The maître d’ was not available to be informed that we had arrived. Eventually he showed up and started seating some people. Eventually I got to tell him we were there for our 7:30 reservation. He then returned to seat the rest of my party and inform me, he would return to seat me. After I said that was my group, he seated us but never registered that we had a reservation. I finally was able to go back to speak to him when the crowd was seated. He said don’t worry he would take care of it. Of course he didn’t have my name and had no idea what reservation I had arrived for. Another gentleman was also at the seating area and asked me for my name and took care of acknowledging that I had arrived for my open table reservation. I thought the man was insulting in the way he handled my seating and subsequent attempt to register my reservation.

The rest of our experience was fine. The food service and ambience were as expected.

Very poor service. We felt rushed!
Pasta was good. Risotto with seafood was very poor, very little flavor even though I asked for cheese to sprinkle over it. Rice poorly done!
Salads were ok.
Will not go back.
Do not recommend.

The food was delicious. The service was almost too good in that we had waiters or busboys checking in with us constantly, almost too often. Lastly the manager wore his mask under his chin while moving around the restaurant, seating people etc. That was infuriating when literally all employees we saw were masked.

Eddie and team are simply the best! Never, ever disappoint. Food was top notch, as always. I have been dining at Lattanzi on business for years, but this was the first time I shared the experience with my wife and she loved it! There’s a reason Lattanzi has been around for decades. It’s the best dining experience in the city. Cheers to you all for another great evening.

I made a reservation for 345 pm on open table. I showed up for the reservation and it was chained shut. I tried to call and it went to voicemail. They said they'd call back within an hour. They never called. I can't say anything about the food, but anyone who runs a business this way can't really take care with much of anything. Which means, consumer beware.

We found Lattanzi recently and have brought our friends with us every time we go to the theater. Friendly and caring service and wonderful dishes at reasonable prices. Great bar as well. It is now our go to restaurant in the theater district.

Lattanzi is an italian restaurant that does it all!
the menu features a variety of items that you won't see on other menus - and the food is prepared and served wonderfully!
The location is perfect if you are seeing a broadway show - actually, Lattanzi is worth a trip and you can spend an evening there enjoying the delicious food and the attentive service-
Be sure to order anything on the menu that includes artichokes!
Don't miss the beautiful and delicious desserts!

The location, ambiance, and service were all excellent. I’m a red sauce person and theirs was ok but just wasn’t my preference. Their menu is mostly non-red sauce dishes so I’m guessing their specialties lay elsewhere. Regardless, the food was good and the service was excellent, so definitely 4+ stars and worth a visit if you’re near tue theatre district and looking for Italian food.

Service was a little slow. Wrong appetizer was served and needed to be corrected.. Two entrees were only lukewarm when served. No time for dessert because of an early Broadway show and slow service. Somewhat disappointing from a usually excellent restaurant.

Our go-to theater district Italian! Last night we were a party of 6 with a 7:00 PM reservation and waited on the sidewalk until 7:36 to be seated. Not great management, but I do understand how hard it is to tell a table of 6 customers to get out because you need the table.

Fortunately the place clears out for curtain time, so a 7:30 or 7:45 reservation might serve you better.

That said, always reliable, quiet, grown-up, and the food is delicious. LOVE this place.
