An Italian farmhouse in the middle of NYC. Ate dinner here on Easter Sunday. Service was impeccable and staff were knowledgeable and gladly accommodated a special request from our picky eater kid. Food was delicious, desserts were even better. Will most definitely be back!

I was looking for a pleasant Italian near my hotel and this was recommended by my concierge. It was a beautiful sunny and warm day and I enjoyed sitting outside. Service was nice, could have been a bit more effusive. The food was very nice...More

This place was great. Service was superb from moment you walk into restaurant to moment you leave. Food is tremendous and atmosphere is great. Highly recommended when in Times Square and catching a show or just people watching.

This restaurant is located in the middle of the Broadway theatre district. It's ultra convenient for a pre or post theatre meal. The service is rapid and amiable and the food is very good. The food prices are moderate ( for New York ).

The restaurant was across the street from the show, THE BRONX TALE. The food is very good, and so is the service. Large menu with a lot of good choices. Only criticism is the noise level.

We arrived around 6 pm for the pre theater crowd. Pretty crowded and noisy but vibrant. Reservations definitely a must.

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.
