Lattanzi Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I love this restaurant! We have been here several times and always enjoy the food and ambience! It is elegant yet warm and cozy and the waitstaff is not overbearing. The food is always perfect. I only wish they had a larger selection of appetizers which are mostly salads. We will be back!

We have eaten at Lattanzi several times. The venue, service and food are excellent and proximity to the theaters makes this restaurant an ideal place to begin a wonderful evening or end a wonderful afternoon.

The food was good but nothing to rave about. The service was very courteous and the room was pleasantly decorated. However, the temperature was quite high. New York Restaurants need to dial down their thermostats. Nothing worse than trying to eat in a hot room.

Lattanzi is run by people who know what they're doing. Impeccable, unintrusive service, proper portions, interesting food, and an enjoyable room. We went pre-theater and everything was staged perfectly to get us to the show on time. Reccomend it for unpretentious, tasty food and a pleasant ambiance. Good job!

Very enjoyable pre-theater meal. Service was relatively prompt. Food appetizers were very good. Meal was enjoyable and served quickly. Dessert was Excellent. The Napoleon was authentic Italian bakery style and delicious.

We met friends for a pre-theatre, quiet dinner so we could "catch up". Lattanzi didn't disappoint. We had a round, quiet table at the back of the restaurant. Our server was wonderful, efficient, and didn't interfere much with our meal so we could talk with one another.
This is the 2nd time we've gone there, and we'll go again when in NYC. Food is good and the menu offers are varied.

This was my second trip to Lattanzi. Brought my family after seeing a Broadway show. The food is superb; the service is great, couldn't get over how quickly our appetizers and entrees came out. The price is good as well. Love it ........... will definitely go again.

A fairly typical restaurant row venue. Pleasant surroundings, very accommodating staff, tables unusually nicely spaced. Would that the food lived up to the rest, particularly as the prices are tourist-soakingly high. The food isn't bad, but it isn't really good either. You can do better. Easily.

The value equation between quality, service and price is very good. Dinner with wine will be $125 plus. The quality of food and attentative service is excellent. We had an early dinner before a 7PM broadway show. The waiter made sure we had ample time to walk to the theatre. Would eat here again when visiting New York

We love Lattanzi. It is our favorite restaurant in NYC. It is very centrally located to the Theaters and the food is absolutely delicious. The price is just right and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. We have recommended this restaurant to everyone we know!!!

I took my 3 teenage daughters here before seeing a show. It was very close to the theatre that we were going to, and I liked the ratings it had gotten previously. I thought the food was very good, not great. The menu was a little more limited than I would have liked. Dishes were good and the portion sizes were more than adequate. Service was prompt and courteous. Nice cozy, restaurant to go to before a show.

Food was very good, but two wrong meals were delivered to everyone did not get there meals at the same time. Waiter did not pay much attention to us and had to be called over a few times
Overall very good food and poor service.

Terrible experience! We have dined at This restaurant before the theater several times in the last few years and have had good dining experiences. We are from the NY area and go into the city 3-4 times a year for dinner. We won't be going back to Lattanzi. This visit was during a holiday week and they filled more tables than they could serve. From check in to being shown to an upstairs table through dinner, service by all restaurant staff was slow and impersonal at best. We sat at the table a long time before anyone took a drink order or even gave us a menu. The waiter did not write the order down, had to return to the table to refresh his memory, and still made a mistake with an appetizer order so our guest had to wait to receive the corrected appetizer. Two of our guests had to wait for their main courses. Most of the food was so-so; the mashed potatoes and vegetables served with my salmon looked like they had been sitting under a heat lamp for a long time and were terrible. Some of our complaints might be excusable if they were the only thing that went wrong, but since so many things went wrong, we cannot say anything positive about our dining experience at Lattanzi. If they are going to take so many reservations during the busy season they need to be sure they can offer good service and maintain the quality of their food.

Ok straight forward Italian food, pasta special with broc rabe and sausage was awful. Fried artichokes were tasty. Branzino oreg was ok, lamb shank with porcini sauce had zero porcini, veal pizzaiola had whole peppers, kinda weak. Desserts were good

Special appetizer artichoke is good. Main course branzino is good, except not much veggies at side. My friend is vegan and I feel her food portion and choice are not very fulfilling. Love both desserts we got: tiramisu and italian cheese cake. Italian Cheese cake is very good, lighter and fluffier than NY cheesecake. Recommend. Nice cute little place with european style decor.
Convenient for tourist because close to time square. For locals like us, probably won't come again since there are many good choices in other areas. (however, we do pick this place based on the convenient locations for three of us: one lives in Brooklyn, one from Queens, and I am from UWS manhattan.)

I have been to Lattanzi many times especially for the fried artichokes which are usually superb, but this time were not cooked enough and were warm, not hot. The meals were lackluster for all 5 of us. Perhaps because it was Christmas Eve day, they didn't have enough help or not the usual help. But I had to apologize to my friends that we did not have a better experience. On another note, I reserved with Open Table and was not able to get a 12 noon reservation. I thought that was because it was sold out at that time. I had to take an 11:30 time instead. The entire time we were there, only one other table was occupied and I can't understand why we couldn't get a table for noon. An unusually bad experience for us this time.

We have always enjoyed the food and attention at Lattanzi in the past. We were there last Friday evening and had a luke warm experience. The food was tasty but our waiter was un-attentive. Never checked to make sure everything was OK. Our water was not refilled and never brought the matzo I asked for and was looking forward to eating. The restaurant was not crowded and the wait staff were more interested in setting up for the next day rather than paying attention to us. Sorry we bothered you!

We were in NYC to see tree and shopping. Decided to try new place for dinner. I had the veal pizzaola. Veal was ok but dish needed more seasoning. My husband and daughter had a chicken dish. Some of the pieces of chicken were hard.
For the price you pay, this is unacceptable. The nepolian dessert was really good but the cannoli needed more flavor. The waiters had no personality. Should have went with my first choice which was Becco's.

This was my second time at Lattanzi. My first visit was much different than this visit. I base this mostly on the service. First visit our server was Vallen, he was excellent an on top of his game. This visit our server was Mariano, he was by far the worst server we had in quit a long time. We ordered wine which we had to pour for our self while Mariano watched, he was very rude and aloof. We ordered a second bottle, and had to ask another server as Mariano was nowhere to be found. I have an issue when we order wine costing $75 an have to pour it ourselves. We did have a great busboy who gave us better service than our waiter and tipped him separately.
Although the food was acceptable, a greater selection would improve the menu.
