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.

Top marks for italian fare

I enjoyed this really flavourful food on their terrace on a beautiful summer day. The menu selection + daily specials offer a varied choice and they have a good wine list. Service is good.

We had a great experience at La Masseria. We were greeted promptly & warmly. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu & specials. Pasta was cooked just right and the different sauces were incredible. They very easily accomodated one of our party with food alergies. The wine was impeccable. We would definitely go again.

We went here after receiving a recommendation and reading the reviews, but we were not impressed with the food. Our pasta was overcooked and the bacon, onion and wine sauce was poorly seasoned. The restaurant is comfortable and nicely appointed, but the staff exudes an arrogance which the mediocre food we were served does not merit.

I went there with my family on July 11th for dinner on a recent trip to NYC, given the good reviews, however we were let down by the food. Saggy pasta, I order the lobster linguini, small bits of lobster with a tomato sauce which was average at best. Maybe my expectations were to high, the other dishes ordered, were... More

I have been here twice before a Broadway matinee. The food is delicious. There is no need to look for a better Italian restaurant. In my opinion, this is it! The burrata mozzarella appetizer for 2 is amazing served over proscuitto and tomato. The fettuccine bolognese is excellent. The sorbets are made in house and are delicious. The other desserts...

I liked the possibility of eating outside, between a matinée and an evening show, close to both theaters I went to that day. Fresh trufles, grated at your table. Savory branzino. Lack of sweet white wines by the glass, though.

We had a lovely dinner at La Masseria after seeing a show at the Water Kerr theatre. We sat outside on this summer evening as all tables inside were booked. It was very pleasant in the shade. In fact when I went inside to use the ladies I thought the inside was a bit noisy. Outside it was quieter and... More

We ate a wonderful supper here after seeing Wicked on Broadway. The restaurant was very crowded on the Sunday evening we were there. It is also rather noisy but is beautifully decorated. You feel like you are in a small town in Italy. The food was very good but felt it was a bit overpriced. However location location, location...

Found this place by surprise after going to show in the area. The food and service were one of the best in NY. Grilled artichokes and scallops were amazing, as was the pounded veal chop. My wife and I had a great night and will definitely be back again!

Booked a reservation at La Masseria based on reviews and close proximity to hotel. Arrived with my 2 children, ages 7 and 12, and was apprehensive at first about dining there. The hostess and servers assured me that they would be more than happy to accommodate us and were welcome to dine there. The service was excellent and the food... More

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.
