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.

Loved this restaurant and our server. When you see the maitre d checking glasses for spots you know there is pride in this place. The appetizer of melon, fresh figs and prosciutto was perfection. Likewise the risotto with cremini mushrooms and truffle oil.....perfectly executed. The veal Milanese with arugula and tomato also very good. Definitely would come back to this... More

My mushroom risotto with shaved truffles was the most flavorful I've ever had. We also really enjoyed their freshly made pasta. Would definitely go again.

This place was fabulous on its own and extremely convenient if your plans include a Broadway show. The service was top class and the food was even better! They have lots to offer and were very accommodating to any requests.

This was our third trip to La Masseria in as many years, and every time we were very pleased with the service and the food. Our granddaughter asked for something not on the menu, and the server quickly replied, "Yes, I can make that for you." No hassle, no "I've got to check with the kitchen." The service was very...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
