My review title says it all: La Masseria has the best Italian food I've eaten in Midtown, where I've lived for over twenty years. It's become the place where I take out-of-town visitors when I want to wow them. The food is always delicious, and the menu has real variety. You can get anything from delicious homemade pasta to stewed rabbit to amazingly fresh seafood. The wine list and cocktails are also very good. I've always found the service to be exceptional, too; I just had lunch there a few days ago, and despite the fact that it was absurdly busy, my waiter was attentive and personable. If you plan to go, I'd recommend making a reservation, no matter the time--I've gone a few times without one and ended up sitting at the bar, which is fine, but I prefer a table.

Was not expecting such a fabulous dinner. very attentive wait staff. The waiters brought us out samples to taste before we ordered. Lots of big Tucsan wines on the menu. The food was wonderful....we ordered 5 different apps and 4 different main courses, each was better than the next. Bravo!!! we will for sure come back, and not just on theater occasions.

This was some of the best Italian food I've ever had anywhere and everyone in my party of 7 agreed (all well traveled New Yorkers, and mostly Italians.) The vegetable pasta dish I had was phenomenal- it was in a perfectly seasoned lightly creamy sauce. The other dishes I sampled were equally impressive- especially the lamb and porcini pasta special. I squeezed in a hazelnut gelato for dessert which is a favorite of mine, and was pleased with the light nutty flavor. The atmosphere is wonderful and the attentive, patient and charming waiters were the cherry on top of a lovely dining experience. We will be returning...soon!

First time and skeptical as we are of every restaurant in the theater district - we were so pleased and surprised...lovely place, delicious food and excellent service. A real 'keeper'!

I was a walk-in at 6:30pm in the theater district. I was with my two sons ages 16 and 22. We were promptly seated without hesitation - the restaurant was at about 90% capacity. We were treated with the utmost respect. Not always the case when dining with young people. The food was delivered very promptly. The Btl of wine that we ordered was always poured when needed. We ordered three pasta dishes that were absolutely delicious!-Fettucine w/meat sauce , Orochiette w/ sausage and brocoli rabe, and a special Fettucine w/ lamb and porcini mushrooms. We split a wonderfully light and tastey Tiramisu that topped off our meal. We had realized that we needed to leave soon. as we looked for our waiter who had been busy with a larger table, the Maitre D quickly took care of us before we even had a chance to try and flag any one down. Every one was really on top of there game. I would absolutely return to this restaurant.

Visited wth a large group, everyone raved how good the pasta dishes were, plus the seafood, & the veal was also very good. Only disappointment was the small portion for the meatball appetizer $17.00 for two meatballs, but the fried Zucchini was generous and very tasty. It is a must visit we will go back for the homemade pasta, one of the couples were world travelers & said it was the best pasta they ever had & they just came back from Italy. The waiter could have been a little more patient.

Overall a good experience, but the management.....the most discourteous people you will ever happen to meet. With owners like this it is only a matter of time before the place gets a bad name.
