La Masseria Restaurant is inspired from ancient fortified farmhouses that in the Puglia Region of Italy are called “Masseria”. Executive Chef/Co-Owner, Pino Coladonato, grew up on a Farm in Puglia. He was forced to eat whatever was available but soon was tired of bean puree and decided to take matters into his own hands, creating new ways to use the same few ingredients. Now, with limitless ingredients to choose from, fava beans, chickpeas and lentils are still a core element in many of his entrees. Interior Designer Libby Langdon has created a warm, inviting dining atmosphere. Rustic and relaxed, with plenty of old world charm. Oversized iron sconces custom made from antique wrought iron gates punctuate the walls, and artful displays of antique farm tools mixed with various authentic Italian photographs all add to the farmhouse appeal. The 250-bottle wine list encompasses all regions of Italy with few of the best American and the rest of the world.

Went to this restaurant on a weak recommendation from a friend. It was almost directly across the street from the theatre where we had matinee tickets. We decided to give them a try. What a pleasant surprise when we got inside. There was a brief wait while a table was prepared so we sat at the bar area. The bartender... More

Visited this restaurant with my family. Its located 1 block from Times Square but still away from all the noice. The food felt genuinely italian and tasted excellent. The staff was really attentive and the interior cosy. Works well both for family dinner and for dates.

I took my 19yo daughter here for a mother-daughter trip. She has been living on university residence food for a while so she was due for a good meal. I decided to take her to La Masseria after a good experience on a previous trip. Was she in for a treat! She decided to have the 3-course meal, while I... More

We could have gone to any number of Italian Restaurants in NYC but this was highly recommended. Rightfully so , it was great service was prompt but we were allowed to relax and not be in a hurry. Food was top of the line and many choices. Would go back for sure t

In New York for business and to see some old friends. They suggested La Masseria which was close to my hotel. Casual décor and ambiance with great service and very good food. Several days later I had to make a last minute dinner reservation. Since I had a good experience several night before, decided to make a reservation here. Service... More

We recently visited New York for 5 days... Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant and it was literally a stones throw from our hotel.... The food was that good we ate here twice.... The food was the best Italian food we've had in many years... The complimentary bread basket had several different varieties, we ordered the tagliatelle bolognese which was... More

I picked the restaurant because of its Tripadvisor rating and the distance from my hotel. I was disappointed. I started with Burrata fresh mozzarella and tomatos - it was excellent. My main course was Orecchiette Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage, which was dull, boring, and little taste. I can't imagine that the chef ever tried this dish. The ricotta... More

Had lunch before a Broadway matinee. La Masseria has the best veal I have had in years. The veal literally melts in your mouth. Great location. Reasonable prices, and some of the best food you will get anywhere.
