About
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

While we are not typically drawn to the theater district for dinner, four of us went to La Masseria on a Saturday night last February - our reservations were at 7:00pm and we left the table after 11:00pm. The atmosphere lends itself to good conversation...and multiple bottles of wine while enjoying exquisite food. The wait staff is made up of true professionals who are knowledgeable and discreet. It is truly a little gem nestled in the busy theater district and should not be missed!More

Steaks were delicious along with side of spinach. Awesome wine selection. Had a red wine that was recommended. (Not sure of the name.) Variety of delectable desserts. Service was impeccable. Would return in a minute. Walking distance from Times Square.

La Masseria Italian restaurant is conveniently located in the theatre district and timely accommodates show-goers. The service is pleasant and attentive. The dining room is pretty, and the tables, which were once much, MUCH, too close together, have been rearranged to allow for more comfortable...dining. The food is quite good. There is something for everyone, from pastas, to salads, to seafood, to veal, and an abundant offering of daily specials. The Masseria salad, with mushrooms and roasted peppers, was tasty and the grilled prawns (over salad) were delicious. The pea soup was hearty, and the pasta with lobster was savored. We enjoy La Masseria, for pre-theatre dinner as the food (especially the pastas and the prawns) is very good, the room is pretty, and the service is attentive and appropriately paced to timely arrive at your show. If you plan on dining during the popular pre-theatre hours, make a reservation, as it draws quite a crowd!More

We went for lunch just three of us . As we have been here before we were looking forward to a grilled Veal Chop which is by far the best I have ever had anywhere else Unfortunately the lunch menu does not include the Veal...Chop grilled just as a crumbed chop. Instead I had a salad with grilled Shrimp. There were three very large delicious Shrimp . For dessert I ordered an Italian Cheesecake. I have not tasted a more fabulous cheesecake ever. This Cheesecake is a must if you are a Cheesecake eaterMore

The pasta specials we ordered were out of this world. Ravioli with shrimp and artichoke in a light tomato sauce and the Veal with saffron pasta just melted in your mouth. The service great as well!

Have never been disappointed by any aspect of my dining experience. Their specials are always SPECIAL! Still trying to figure out the recipe for their avocado/artichoke with pistachio dressing. Wonderful!

Food was fantastic with great service my only criticism is that it is packed in so tightly it can be a bit uncomfortable it made the experience a little frantic instead of relaxing but can not fault the food at all.

I booked this restaurant based on the great reviews that it receives. Unfortunately for me it wasn't the greatest meal I've had! The service was very good I must say and the restaurant itself was very nice. However the food was really average for the...prices they were charging. I am a huge fan of Italian food and usually you wouldn't find anything left on my plate, however this just wasn't very good! I can actually cook a much tastier pasta myself! Unfortunately we won't be returning and wouldn't recommend!More

Sorry I didn’t know, given they are close to so many hotels my guess is they do.

At 6pm, great time to talk. At 7pm, it was very crowded and much noisier.
