I love Lattanzi! Been coming here for over thirty years? Can that be correct? All the food is terrific, but don't miss the sauteed artichokes (Carciofi alla Giudia), the veal scaloppine pizzaiola and the Napoleon for dessert!

We ate at Lattanzi a couple of weeks ago for the first time with friends who had eaten there several times before. We enjoyed the food and service so much that we came back, just the two of us for a birthday celebration. We each had a glass of a pretty good house Sauvignon Blanc and Moscato. As a main I had a Bronzino and my wife had a pappardelle with veal ragout. Topped off with a coffee and fruits and a cannoli the meal was very good.
We will be back!

This had been one of my favorite restaurants, their signature artichoke dish had always been outstanding...until this visit.
I was excited to take 2 people who had never been there before, we were very disappointed.
I ordered a double portion of the artichoke starter which was dominated by salt and oil The chicken was tough, pasta was OK, but overall very disappointing given the great meals I have had there in the past.

Lattanzi on Restaurant Row, in NYC's theatre district, this is where you want to have dinner before or after your play. Welcoming to tourists but this is no tourist trap, as the locals will attest to. Great ambiance, terrific food and personal service will bring me back again. Try it. You can't lose.

WE FOUND THIS GEM AND IT WAS AMAZING, THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS BY FAR THE BEST WE HAD IN THE CITY ALL WEEKEND, WISHED IT WAS CLOSER TO HOME I WOULD GO FREQUENTLY.
GREAT PLACE TO GO BEFORE THE THEATRE !! WELL DONE lATTANZI!!!

Lattanzi is a great pre/post theatre restaurant located smack in the middle of restaurant row. Plenty of white tablecloth covered tables and a nice bar off to the right side. They are open from 11 straight through the day so it's a great place for mid-afternoon dining also. The menu is pretty standard Italian fare with a hint of Jewish Roman dishes (the artichokes are terrific). Now on this occasion (we had been here several times before) we sat in the lovely back "garden area". Our waiter was punctual but not to good on explaining the dishes. I asked if the veal valdostana was rolled like a braciole and he said yes. But it wasn't. It was a piece of veal that was sliced and the prosciutto and mozz inserted. The bread felt like it was a day old. One person asked for their pasta al dente and it didn't come out that way. The wine list was good and the desserts were delicious. Overall was disappointed but will be back.

LATTANZI is one of the special restaurants in the theater district. It has a lovely ambience and the food is excellent. The Jerusalem artichokes are a delicious appetizer. We were going to an early show and they were very helpful in keeping our meal paced without rushing us. I have been there many times and always look forward to returning. Worth the visit!

Tried Lattanzi for the first time in years. Boy has it gone downhill. I left most of the house specialty - fried artichokes - on my plate, even though they cost a hefty $18, as they were inedible. The Chicken Milanese main wasn't much better. The service was fair at best, and we were surrounded by loud guests. A night to forget. Will not return again.

Post theater dinner at Lattanzi did not disappoint. Two from our party live in Italy and were impressed with the food quality. Everything we ordered was delicious; portions were generous. If you like artichoke have the appetizer or the artichoke gnocchi. Octopus and shrimp appetizer was very good too. Service was pleasant and attentive and although the restaurant was busy, it was not noisy so we were able to easily converse. A nice restaurant row find!

The food was delicious. The service was very poor. We waited a half an hour to order & another 25 minutes until our food was served. We weren't checked on during the time we waited or at all during the meal. We had to hurriedly eat our food to make it to our show. The restaurant was not overly crowded because we had an early reservation. The food was great. Again the service was desperately lacking.

We went to Lattanzi after a Broadway show and were seated immediately as there were many empty tables. Gradually, the restaurant filled up based on show schedules. The ambience was very relaxing and the food was quite good. We had a recommendation from a friend who is a native New Yorker and we would also recommend the restaurant to others.

Everything was great. This was pre-theater dinner. One of my guests said it was the best mozzarella and tomatoes he had ever had anywhere. The Bronzino was perfect. I had veal Marsala cooked perfectly. Service is superb!!

The food and service was wonderful. I told my husband I wanted to eat there the next 5 evenings so I could try more of the dishes. Unfortunately, we were leaving the next day, but we will return on our next visit to NYC.

We and another couple visit this every year at this time to celebrate our wedding anniversaries, one day and five years apart. This was our 60th and their 55th. We stay at a hotel in Times Square and are able to walk to dinner and then walk to the theatre. All very convenient.

A hohum Italian restaurant in Theatre District. Venue in the atrium room is appealing, light and airy.
The fun stops there.
Service is prompt and efficient - not warm and caring servers. Get them in and get them out attitude. Servers behaved like they wanted to take care of us quickly so they could get on to something more important - and that was a deep secret. Not once did anyone check in to see how we were doing during our meal.
Food was nothing at all special - not bad - nothing special or memorable.

I have been to Lattanzi many times and always thought the food and service were very good. I was disappointed on this visit because the portions have gotten even smaller for an already very high price point. Not a great value. In addition we were asked to leave our table after being there for an hour and 40 minutes, with friends who I had not seen for three years, because they had a large party in the room that we were in. No offer was made to seat us elsewhere, To buy a drink, to send over dessert, or to in any way apologize for this rather rude request. I wont be back

Lattanzi is a New York classic in the theatre district. It serves fresh and authentic italian and international cuisine. Service is very timely and prompt -- they can get you in an out quickly if you are going to a play or musical. The wine list in extensive. My family has been going there for 20 years and is always on our list when we visit New York.

Perfect choice for pre-theater. Food was delicious and we were served promptly but with an un-rushed aura around us and all the pre-theater diners. We had one in our party on crutches and they very nicely accommodated us with a first floor table. Would love to see the upstairs next time we come in - and we do plan on returning!!
