We thoroughly enjoyed the Lobster Pasta, which we accompanied with spinach, pear, walnut & Gorgonzola salad. The service was excellent and there was a great selection of wine.

The atmosphere is fine and so is the service, but the price is very steep and the quality of the meal does not correspond. We had a goat cheese salad almost without cheese, a coniglio that was tough and a pollo vin cotto that also...More

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.
