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.

Solid Choice in the Theater District

As a native New Yorker I am asked constantly for restaurant recommendations in Manhattan from friends visiting New York and the theater district specifically. I can now add La Masseria to the short list of places that I would recommend in this part of the city. Although the exterior is rather bland... read more

This restaurant is way over priced for average food and a waiter with an attitude. I had a business dinner here recently and I had asked the waiter to make sure to give me 2 checks (1 for food and 1 for alcohol). He said, no problem. Then when we were about to order, I reminded him that I will... More

We had a pre-theather dinner here this week that was delicious and we never felt rushed. The ambiance is Italian Farmhouse and charming. The wait staff is professional and well trained and could not have been nicer! We enjoyed a cold seafood appetizer as well as an Arugula salad (from the Restaurant Week menu). A pasta dish from the main... More

I made reservation in advance to celebrate my daughter's 15th b-day. We walk in front of the Restaurante several times, it was already dark and the name is over brown surface so it is difficult to see it. Once inside, the place is very casual, with very nice ambiance, the food is very, very good, our waiter was very polite,... More

We loved our dinner here! The food was great, a really nice wine list, excellent service, and a great farmhouse appeal. We will come back here again next time we are in NYC

We searched trip advisor and saw this had decent reviews so took the short walk to the restaurant. We did not book though did not struggle for a table. The greeter put us on table 44 which was far from the golden table. This table was right at the back of the restaurant up the stairs and next to a... More

Was looking forward to a great meal, given the glowing reviews that we read. And we really wanted a good meal, it being my husband's birthday. I had spent some time picking a place I thought we'd both really enjoy. But our experience sadly fell way short of our expectations. Although the service was good, the food was bland, the... More

was referred here by our concierge from the hotel. very nice atmosphere and service. we ordered the stuffed eggplant as an app, and the server recommended one order to share, and they were bang on. lots of it and it was delicious. our mains were also very good, although the daily risotto was a tad disappointed. highly recommend visiting here...

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.
