Masseria is an excellent option for a great meal in NY. Fantastic food and a nice atmosphere. Service is good and you can dine inside or outside. I have been going each time I am in NY and have never been disappointed. Be sure to make a reservation, so that you avoid the hassle of waiting. They have a nice... More

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant 5 times in the last few years, and now make it a point to visit every time when we are in NYC. The food is always very well prepared, ingredients are fresh and there is a richness and complexity in flavors. The service is always very good as well. Desserts are... More

My wife and I had dinner at La Masseria. The service was very good and so was our dinner. We often split meals so as not to over eat. The waiter was very nice about us spliting our salad and entree. They had meatballs as an appetizer but didn't have spagetti & meatballs as an entree. We ask our waiter... More

The food here is very good, but what stood out even more was the service. Given the attentive, flexible, and efficient waitstaff and the restaurant's location close to Times Square, it's a great spot to eat and make it to a show on time. I wasn't in a hurry, though, and I did not feel at all rushed to leave.... More

Stumbled across it and very glad I did too. Everything was excellent. They have air con seating inside and several tables on the sidewalk. A friendly greeting was followed by swift seating. The complimentary breads and bread sticks were freshly baked on the premises and they are happy to keep refilling the basket. The menu was nicely balanced. Good choices... More

Went for dinner last night hoping to find the trip advisor reviews to be true. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. We are Italian, visit Italy often, and this restaurant is just a "want to be." The appetizer of scallops and artichokes was lacking in flavor. Scallops were about the size of a dine, over grilled, and tasteless. We ordered wine,... More

We had dinner at this place and it was a huge night of fun. The dining room was packed, so we ate at the bar with Valentina - the best bar keep in NYC. She looks like Fergie (rockstar) and was sooo cool to chat with. The dinner was good - I'm gluten free and dairy free - so it... More

There's nothing like going to a new restaurant and having the staff make you feel welcomed. La Masseria has impeccable customer service. The food is delicious and as authentic Italian food you'll get in NYC. I mean you'll feel you're dining at some restaurant in Rome! It is that good. Location of this restaurant can't be better! Highly recommend!

Thank adloz

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
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.
