We wanted to try this restaurant since we live in the area and we had a gift card. We had never been there. I'm pretty sure we won't return. Although the service couldn't have been better, the food had some issues. My husband & I both ordered lunch specials. Mine was a saffron risotta with... read more

Oh boy, what can I say. It is like being married to the best chef! Anytime I need to be pampered in a elegant way, with mouthwatering rustic food, I come here. With my very busy schedule, I try to go at least every month. They are always packed, so a lot of time I end up at the bar.... More

What a wonderful restaurant! When we first arrived I thought it was more of a pub type but was pleasantly surprised when brought into the dining part. The menu was varied with most anything you could want . Our server Keith was extremely knowledgable and helped with some great suggestions right down to dessert. A very lovely place to have... More

The food at La Masseria is so fresh and mouthwatering it feels as though the chef has made every bite just for you. The servers are excellent, so combined with the food it's a 5-star experience you'd find in any big city right in our small town. I've only had pasta dishes but they were all amazing...very rich but among... More

I ordered one of the day specials, spagetti with rock lobster and a light tomato sauce. it was all way over cooked. the lobster was barely edible and the spagetti was mush. in fairness i did complain and they didnt charge me for it.

My husband and I steered clear of this local restaurant for awhile because we heard it was pricey. Recently I have been twice each for lunch and for dinner and enjoyed the meals thoroughly. The lunch service was impeccable, the evening service fair. The atmosphere was lively, and the food usually was done to perfection. Yes, the prices are indeed... More

Nice wine list and large bar. Poorly lit and noisy. We had 8:00 pm reservations and we still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. The menu is very pricey and the food, fair at best! After listing the evening specials, the server told us three (we wanted) were gone. So why mention them when telling us the specials.... More

Service was very good. Food was average compared to other Italian restaurants in the State, but overpriced. Probably will not return.

Dined here with friends for the first time. I ordered the rabbit since it's something you don't find in every Italian restaurant. When I ordered "coniglio" (rabbit), the waiter didn't know what I was talking about and I read him the description of the dish in English. If the name of the dish is in Italian, shouldn't the wait staff... More

We more or less picked La Masseria at random while strolling Main Street on a Friday night. We were glad we did. The lobster and pasta entree was delicious. The salads were large and interesting. The wine was decent. I do not feel that the prices were unreasonable. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. If the number of specials available... More
