  • Awesome Italian Cuisine
    by  on 11/15/2011

    The ambiance of the restaurant initiated my wonderful experience. I went pre-theatre and did not feel rushed in any way. My food was exceptional (I had the gnocchi) with the perfect amount of cheese and seasonings. Was a wonderful experience.

  • How is this considered good italian?
    by  on 03/08/2010

    I suppose if your idea of 'rustic' Italian food is a plate full of pasta covered by a very thin, tasteless vegetable broth, it qualifies well. But if you actually like food with flavor, I can't imagine how you could possibly enjoy a meal here.\r \r I recently had the vegetable penne for post-theater dinner. I was amazed at how bland it was. I had to ask for extra extra parm and pepper just to get it down. I asked for a different, thicker sauce, and was brought stewed tomatoes - JUST stewed tomatos, with no salt, no nothing. Pasta sauce from a jar would have been far better. \r \r I won't be returning.

  • Excellent Food in a Very Nice Room
    by  on 02/04/2009

    Excellent food across all our courses, with a fairly comprehensive and standard Italian menu. A really nice space comprised of two rooms, the back one might seem like Siberia but actually had just a more layed(sic) back vibe. Our waiter and the rest of the staff were very friendly and the whole experience differed from typical theater district restaurants, though it's also a bit pricier, I noticed that there were quite a few people taking tables as we left so the food can stand on its own.

  • Everything....Outstanding
    by  on 04/24/2008

    La Masseria was Excellent! The food was terrific and the service, outstanding. My Fiance and I loved each course, from the stuffed Mozzarella, to the Vin Cotto & Ravioli, down to the Tiramisu. The staff even sang to her for her birthday... making the night extra special. We sat immediately and the food arrived just as quickly. Even found a reasonably priced bottle of wine. I'd definitely recommend La Masseria - it's a must......especially if you feel like enjoying your dining experience as much as we did.

  • best restaurant in the neighborhood
    by  on 09/12/2007

    i work around the corner and go to lunch every masseria is by far my top choice. i've had nearly everything on the menu at this point and have never been disappointed. friendly staff, fresh ingredients, clean atmosphere, etc. it gets its share of the theatre crowd, especially tuesday matinee, but other than that you can turn up and get seated immediately. nightime i've had similar exeperiences. can be pricey, but a very good value for your money...strongly recommended!

  • Feels like Italia
    by  on 07/12/2007

    I was here recently for a company sponsored event and was very impressed. The inside has an inviting warm Italia feel. The seating outdoors is spacious and the service was great. Food was good and we really enjoyed their appetizers at the cocktail hour. Their wine selection looks very interestsing and I look forward to giving it a whirl sometime. I would go here again to not only eat but just drink and enjoy a bottle of wine on their patio. I found the staff very welcoming. My boyfriend and I were very pleased.

  • Probably the best Italian in the area
    by  on 09/11/2006

    It's not generally recommended as a neighborhood to get dinner, but if you should find yourself having to dine in the theater district I would highly recommend this excellent Italian restaurant. It's a real jewel in an area where the food is often ""just OK"" and the tabs can get large. La Masseria isn't exactly cheap, but considering the area and the quality of the food, it's a real bargain. The pastas are particularly good, but the other dishes that I've had are excellent as well. They also know how to work in a crowded environment: the service was very good and the restaurant went from crowded to standing room during the duration my party's meal. Which brings me to the next issue -- this place isn't a secret any more and it gets busy. If you want to be promptly seated, you'll need to make a reservation on most nights.

  • enjoyed every bite

  • The Best Italian in New York

  • A vist to Italy without the plane ride!
    by  on 01/09/2006

    Think Tuscan Villa with a splash of the spice of Southern Italy. I am a devoted La Masseria patron. Even when it is busy (pre theater) the food comes out perfectly. So good I wanted to keep it my secret. My husband is Italian and is very critical when it comes to food. La Masseria is now his favorite restauant in all of New York. I could describe the food, but words would not do it justice, you have to taste it for yourself.
