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.

We sat outside for dinner here after our matinee and watched the world go by. The restaurant was crowded, but the service was still great. We split a salad, which they divided in the kitchen for us. Then we both had the fettuccine bolognese... absolutely delicious handmade pasta! Add a little wine and presto -- a perfect meal on the... More

We had a simple dinner of pasta and wine. The pasta was outstanding. The waitstaff was also excellent. They were friendly and informative and efficient. They gave you just the right amount of attention. The atmosphere was lovely. They actually have a beautiful patio to for warm nights. We sat inside and it was lively yet serene. I highly recommend...

Wonderful service and fine food with gentle Italian touch. Highly recommended if you have the money...this is not the cheapest option.

I had a seafood meal consisting of 3 varieties of broiled fillet served over spinach and it was terrific. You have to order the fresh mozzarella from Italy ! Overall great place in the theater district with better quality food and service than most other establishments in the area. It was a bit noisy though.... Still worth it though!

Decided to try after seeing so many people here and checking previous reviews. Went for special anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. I had evening special of risotto with cuttlefish and shrimp. My husband could not make up his mind so the waiter proposed they prepare him a risotto with all mixed seafood. Both were large portions and tomato based... More

Service was exceptional. The wine steward steered us to a great 2008 Amaronne at a good price. Food was great. Pleasant relaxed atmosphere was great. We would eat here again. Probably the best meal of the entire four day trip.

My husband and I ate here based on Trip advisor reviews. We loved this restaurant. Our server, Joel, was knowledgable and friendly. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was great. We ate here before a show. They made sure we were finished in plenty of time to walk over to the theater. I can't say enough good things about this... More

We were there on a Sunday night and the restaurant was packed. Be sure you have a reservation. Pricey wine list. Food was excellent: perfectly cooked salmon with a delicate mustard sauce and the calve's liver with blueberry sauce was very good (despite how the combination of liver and blueberries may sound). Young waiter provided impeccable professional service. Restaurant is... More

The starter was nice and good, but the main with ''grandmother's '' sauce was way to heavy, the tiny glass of chardonnay i got suggested was not impressive and costed 11 USD. This is not the first time I come here and sometimes the food is really good and sometimes it's average. It's worth a try but be aware of... More
