Description: 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.

Ate here before the theater and had some amazing food. My wife and I started by splitting a salad with pistachios, avocado and cheese. Amazing. I had the bolognese for the main course. It was superb and more than I could eat. She had shrimp risotto, also excellent, and our friends had a gnocchi that was awesome. Not cheap but... More

I do not know how we have missed this place as I fell like we have had so many Italian meals in this neighborhood. Very tasty food, gracious genuine service, and loved sitting outdoors even in the rain! New favorite pre and post theatre find.

The restaurant is in a great location for pre theater or post theater dining. The food and atmosphere are exceptional! The pasta melted in ones mouth and the sauce was perfect. I will definitely return again and again.

Food was pretty good but not great. I've eaten in many Italian restaurants (in Italy and out with) and this was nice but we've had much better. The service was very very poor. We were seated outside and I noticed most of the other tables were speaking Italian. The waiter was all over these tables chatting away and we felt... More
