Lattanzi Ratings and Reviews

This was my first time at this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The décor, ambiance, service and food was impressive. The Halibut wrapped in a potato curst was delicious as was the veal marsala, European Sea Bass (Branzino), and Chicken savored by my family and friends. This restaurant is conveniently located to the theaters nestled on restaurant row. I will definitely be back to dine at this wonderful gem again.

I never go to New York without a meal or two at Lattanzi's. The carcioffi (artichoke) appetizer is always wonderful as is the Napoleon for dessert. The entree's in between rarely disappoint whether pasta, seafood, or veal.

Went for business lunch on Thursday afternoon. The food and service were excellent. We had the place to ourselves which although not exciting, it allowed us to relax and speak openly. I would definitely go again. Much nicer and bigger on the inside than one would assume from the street view.

The restaurant was almost empty, still the waitstaff were inattentive and even rude. Our food was cold and the order did not include all items. Wine by the glass is below average in quality. Pasta was soggy and sauce was meager. Perhaps they need to close up shop.

have eaten here several times over the past 10 years, always on a saturday, either before an evening broadway show, or after a matinee. the food never disappoints with consistently high quality pastas and entrees. service is always better when not rushed after a matinee. can get quite hectic when trying to make an evening show, but wait staff does their best to get to theater on time. ask for a table in the "backyard". much more subdued and romantic.

The restaurant is expensive (it is in the theater district), but this one is actually worth it for treating oneself. The food and wine were excellent and the service was lovely. I would definitely recommend eating there for a special night out.

Service was ok but unremarkable. Entire experience ruined by waiter challenging tip left on the basis that he should have minimum 20%. How rude this New York sense of entitlement is. Many people in similar job in uk would need to work 4 hours on basic pay for what he was expecting as a tip.

Consistently Superior food and service over the years . It is our go to place pre or post theater and has been for 25 years. The Bronzino and the chocolate Tartuffe and Napoleon alone are worth the trip. Bravo and keep up the good work.

The food was fabulous! The best tiramisu I've had. Food was very tasteful and good portion for the price. Good Italian food. Home made pasta and desserts! The atmosphere was charming, and the outside tables are romantic. Very nice staff. Definitely will go back.

Seated promptly. All waiters were great. Nice atmosphere Italian bread basket with olive oil. Salads are big. We split one Our dinners were delish. Followed by coffee and desert. I will go back. This is a must when in New York. Dave

With very professional service, relaxed but upscale ambiance, well selected wine list and very good food, Lattanzi is a stand-out in the theater district. The artichoke appetizer is a favorite. I add a half order pasta and a fish dish and leave happy.

Disappointed this time. While our friends from Ohio thought it was wonderful, we who are regulars at this usually wonderful restaurant knew this was not their finest hour. The special pasta of the day with pesto was listed on the sign outside at $24. We ordered two of them to share and were charged $26. each. There were no pine nuts in the sauce. It tasted like only olive oil and basil. The pasta primavera my wife had was better than my dish good.
The waiter screwed up the drinks and served my Pinot Grigio to my friend and his Chardonnay to me.
We asked if they had cookies for dessert. They brought five biscotti and charged us $7.50.

Went to my favorite place to dine on restaurant row. I always order the same appetizer, carciofi a la Giudia, and dessert which is the delicious Napoleon. It was a Monday nite and we were disappointed that the artichoke was not available. The restaurant probably hadn't restocked after a busy weekend and Mondays are not particularly busy in the theater district when most theaters are dark. But Lattanzi never really disappoints. The service was fabulous. We had a wonderful dining experience.
