Good Italian style. But you need to be used to American style. So like Mozzarella cheese wrapped with bacon. Good service and definitely to come back here

My wife and I had just returned from the Puglia region of Italy having stayed at a Masseria. We had lunch here recently before a Broadway play and the food and the service was exquisite. It brought back memories of the great foods of Puglia.

The pizza was awful. Paid $25 and there were only a few vegetables on the pizza and they were dry and chewy, barely any cheese and the lady at the front was very abrupt. What a waste on money. Will have to try pizza libretto next time.

Very nice staff and terrific food. Got there early pre theatre. They sat me immediately. No waiting for the rest of the party. Time management was great since we had an 8 pm show. Food great and the pasta was really top notch

We had a reservation this past Saturday at 7:30. As other posters mentioned the restaurant has a loft area - low ceiling and tables about 1-2 inches apart. Our table was up in the corner. They have to move the whole table out to sit the person in the back where you are sitting on top of the people next... More

La Masseria has been a long-standing pre-theatre resto for us. Having lived abroad for many years we're not there as often as in the past. Arriving last evening early for our pre-theatre table I was very disappointed to be shuffled off past the lovely main dining room to the rear dining room heading towards the stairs to a small, cramped,...

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.

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.
