Unlike a bastion of French haute cuisine or an upmarket sushi den, the very best Italian restaurant, by my estimation, must be a place you can roll into with minimal forethought and order some well-sourced salami and cheese or a perfect plate of pasta, and...let the worries of the day dissipate with a bracingly bitter Negroni. You can do all these things at Lattanzi. When it comes down to it, you judge an Italian restaurant on the strength of its pasta, and based on its merit of its Linguine alla Vongole – homemade linguine and little neck clams with garlic and extra virgin olive oil, Lattanzi is up there with the best. This is the kind of food that will stay on your mind long after you’ve left. There’s nowhere better to become a regular. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…More

When dining, good food and service is a must for me but also the ambiance is important. I like to be able to talk to my table mates without shouting. This fine dining Italian place is nice decorated and the restaurant is multiple levels with...several rooms. This allowed for conversation. Food was fine - nothing said 'wow' but we were part of a large group that had pre-arranged the menu and everyone in the restaurant was served at the same time. This is hard to do well, but they did a good job and food was good and nicely presented.More

As we were going to be in the theatre district, I ask my friends for some recommendations. Lattanzi was suggested, as my friend had been a regular. That must mean something.... It was right next to Becco, which I have frequented before, so we wanted...to try somewhere different in the area. I made this reservation over a month ago, so I was pretty surprised to be seated at the very last table in the very last room. ( I guess I wasn't a regular!) When you arrive, you are immediately in room #1, then there's room # 2 and then Siberia, which is room #3. Rooms 1 & 2 are nicely decorated and cozy; room #3 is not. The maitre d assured us that we would soon have company,,, It happened to be restaurant week so we were also given the price fix menu for that event. We did end up choosing from that menu, which was quite limited. I ordered the asparagus and my friend ordered the salad. First course was ok. For the entree, I ordered the rolled spinach and ricotta in homemade pasta, my friend order the chicken dish. I rec'd two small portions of spinach and ricotta rolled in pasta, my friend a platter of sauteed chicken that could have fed three people. And mine was cold. I have NEVER had cold pasta in an Italian restaurant, never. So in addition to the portion disparity, mine was inedible, at least to me. About 10 minutes later I was given a new plate of the entree albeit much warmer. The food was not bad, but not extraordinary either. I had gone to the ladies' room and upon returning noticed a table with piece tiramisu on the table, which looked great. When we ordered our desserts, the tiramisu and tartufo, we were shocked at the paltry size given- literally two bites worth. It was obvious that they had cut down considerably, the larger desserts. Don't get me wrong, I know the restaurant week options need to be compromised to a degree from the normally priced portions, but does it need to be so obvious? We felt we needed to order a "real" dessert to have the effect that we actually ate one! (and the dessert menu looks like it came from the middle ages.) On the bright side, no one rushed us out, it was quiet but I think next time I'll stick with Becco; they have a much better bread basket! And the third strike- they couldn't get my Amex gift card to work, which was not fun.More

The atmosphere and service are very good. But the food has really slipped. I've had better food in college dining halls. Food came out too fast. Obviously food had been sitting there pre-plated under hot lights. Veal all dried out. Lasagna soggy and watery. Affordable...wine list. Tirmasu was not good. The napoleon was very good.More

We went to Lattanzi after seeing Hamilton and arrived around 5:30. We had reservations, but they wanted to seat us at a very small table by the kitchen. We asked for a better table inside by the bar. The food and service was great, but...they overcharged us on the bill for an extra meal. I caught it, but I think I'll skip Lattanzi the next time I'm in the city.More

We were late for theater so had to be in and out in 1 hour /14 and we made it. The food was fantastic and the service impeccable. The restaurant is really beautiful.

Food aside, this instance ruined our experience completely. We ordered a bottle of Chalk Hill Pinot Noir for the table, which is on their wine list for $45. The sever returned with a lesser quality wine, Monte Delgi Pinot Noir, as they claimed they didn’t...have the Chalk Hill. The sever then proceeded to explain “I will give you this better quality wine because we are out of Chalk Hill. But I will charge you the same amount” insinuating he was cutting us a deal. However, this is not the case. Chalk Hill is a higher quality and retails for approximately $20, whereas Monte Delgi is a lesser quality and retails for approximately $9. After speaking with the server, he insisted this was NOT “bait and switch” and was not cooperative, nor was management. With this being said, we heard the SAME server tell the SAME story to a table directly next to us about a different bottle of wine. They ordered a bottle off the menu, and were also then told they were given a better quality wine when they were in fact in the same situation as us with a less quality wine. This restaurant is running a complete scam. Would never recommend this place for pure morals, which don’t exist in this establishment.More

Lattanzi is a great restaurant with excellent food, what you would expect from a family owned restaurant, two items that you have to take into account, First it is on the theater district and they will try to rush you out as soon as humanly...possible, be sure to ask your waiter to wait on the dishes and tell him that you are not in a rush, that way your experience will be better. Second make a reservation, even with a reservation we had to wait for a substantial time to be seated. If not for these issues the experience would have been perfect and my review would have been excellent.More

Heavenly food! Fabulous service! They make you feel like family! We will return again and again! Homemade pasta, artichoke and shrimp and mozzarella that melt in your mouth. Sea bass and veal and a Napoleon and strawberry cream for dessert. Gorgeous wines. Incredibly friendly and...attentive staff. Come visit and enjoy. New York at its very best.More

The men were dressed in sport coats and slacks and the women in skirts, pants and nice tops ... not super dressy but nice. Many of the clientele are headed to the theater after dinner.
