Just happened to be in the theater district and found Lattanzi. The outdoor dinning was fabulous. With the social distancing, my wife and I felt very safe, all personal were masked and for the first time in a while we could enjoy a really great dinner.

Great experience, outside dining looks really cute (real table cloths, nice set up), it’s a great spot for a date and/or birthday celebration (my case 😊). Food is amazing, and tiramisu is mind blowing! Definitely recommend

Lattanzi always exceeds expectations. My friend and I were celebrating her birthday and we had the most amazing time. Their outdoor dining was as special as their indoor dining has always been. Lattanzi's staff is always friendly amazing and special. And they made this evening as special. The food is as always to die for !! Thank you Lattanzi!!

Extremely romantic place for a first date - incredible LGBT+ neighborhood! :) The waiters were extremely attentive and the food was brought out in a very orderly fashion. We had a candle and fresh flowers at every table. The ambience on the terrace was great. Day or night, I would recommend!

I loved the food.
I so enjoy the fried artichokes.
While I ordered the fish soup/stew My husband ordered the snapper with raisins and pine nuts
The waiter brought my husband a dish that was not what he ordered ( the fish with fennel which my husband dislikes)
I called over the waiter to gently tell him it was not what was ordered and he tried to tell me the dish was something it was not
Eventually it was relaxed and the correct dish was delivered
We ordered a vegetable that never arrived but there was enough food and it was not missed
It appeared that there was more than sufficient staff but it was difficult to get the attention of the waitstaff.
Food was wonderful; service not so much.

I took my daughter here and she placed an order and when it came out she was very upset because she thought it was something else and the waiter graciously took it away and replaced it with something she liked. (All her fault for ordering that)The staff was so kind and professional and of course the food was outstanding. I had the Lamb shank and daughter had the mushroom ravioli. I would come back in a heartbeat! Great place and in the Theatre district !

It was a while since I dined at Lattanzi and it was just like I remembered it. Amazing. The grilled artichoke is the best as is the bucatini. The service was fantastic. Eddie the GM is a gem!!

We randomly made reservations to meet friends for dinner in a central location for both couples. The ambiance was lovely and comfortable with adequate space between tables. The menu was good although we thought the pasta dishes were a bit overpriced.
Appetizers and desserts were good as well.

Wonderful experience, the place is much larger than it looks from the outside. The entrance is a step down from the sidewalk to a medium sized dining room, if you don’t feel comfortable there you can request to sit in the garden or in the upper level.
The menu was reasonably priced and everything organized in their own categories, Fish, chicken, meat, (veal and beef, no pork). The specials were varied appetizers, entries and all sounded good. The service was friendly and efficient.
