Lattanzi Ratings and Reviews

Always excellent food and service. Great Italian beyond red sauce. Regular menu and specialties are always perfectly prepared. No rush service unless you ask for it to make a show. Reasonably priced. Good wine list. Classy, but comfortable and friendly.

Food was very tasty, good sized portions. We were celebrating a birthday with dinner and the theater and got delayed in traffic. Our table was held for us, even though we were almost 30 minutes late on a busy Saturday night...quite impressive!

Even though we were a bit late for our reservation (due to getting lost in the city), the staff was able to accommodate us in the most friendly manner. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the noise level was very quite in the back room which is nice when celebrating a special occasion.
Thank you to the staff for an excellent job and I definitely will be back!!

Come Home to Lattanzi --
Lattanzi is as authentic as a trip to Rome, without the hassle. Wonderful food, old favorites and new creations served with style. Experienced waiters, delicious standards. Perfect pre-theater. Even the green salad was delicious! We'll be back!

We're from Austin, Tx and we treated our 9 and 10 year old to a special weekend. We saw the great reviews on Lattanzi and it was close to the Westin, where we were staying. We wanted to be close to Broadway to make an 8pm show on a Saturday. We loved the entire experience. The hostess was amazing and she really made us feel welcomed. The wait staff was knowledgeable and the wine menu was spectacular.
We spent a month in Italy last year and Lattanzi reminded us of the many special places we dined. We'll definitely be back.

Solidly mediocre. Started sliding downhill with a waiter who seemed to deliver the specials as if he was going off to prison. Had to ask four times for waiter to come back to take our dinner order. Long gaps in between and the food was fine, but didn't make up for the poor service. Beyond convenient location pre-theater and a decent atmosphere, no reason to pick this place with so many other choices.

Excellent dining experience. Service was polished and first class. Attentive wait staff, accommodating kitchen. There were 3 of us, one meal was a request off the me i.e. (Traditional Carbonara) which was accommodated without much discussion. We were seated promptly and the food was served promptly as well.

Our family went to latannzi for thanksgiving dinner. The food was great, service was spectacular. The portions were a little small for the price and most of us were hungry later, but the experience was a great one for our family.

It is such a relief to find a restaurant that is attractive, has good food and above all is quiet enough to allow people to talk. My latest three restaurants will remain a one-time experience because of their unbearable level of noise.

Went before the Theater the location is perfect. It was very busy and the help was very attentive. We had the special appetizer of Prosciutto and Burrata which was excellent. I ordered the pasta with fish . The Trenette Al Sugo Di Pesce the linguini was homemade and very good but the fish was bland and needed more something. The description said marinara sauce but it was a white sauce and was bland. My friend had the lasagna special and she liked it and said it was very good . I would come here again I would just order a different dish.

Restaurant is very nicely decorated however the reservation desk has much to be desired. Not very friendly and welcoming upon entering. Food was average I live in westchester county and had have much better. Artichokes which is their signature dish was very dry nothing to special. We had 7 people with us. Spinach ricotta pasta very fresh and delicious but lukewarm. Chicken paillard very dry and chicken parm mozzarella cheese was well done. I was disappointed with our meal.

Lattanzi must have been having an off night its all i can hope for, i ordered beef carpaccio to start it was ok, nothing more nothing less , my wife had the mozarella pomodorro the mozzarella was almost melted into a tough not very nice ball it was awful, main courses , i had the sea bass whuch was nice but it was accompanied with a wedge if polenta that was sitting in the butter sauce it was greasy and the texture was revolting, my wife had fettucinni that was again left on the pass to long the pasta was over done and rubbery,this restaurant is here a long time and its not going to set the scene on fire with anything new or innovating but it should be better than this

Intimate, ambiance, cozy. Authentic Northern Italian involving meat, fish, risotto and vegetables prepared the traditional way. A gem of the theatre district, but the crowd is local. They are not rushing through a meal to get off to the theatre.

Overall the decor and service were good. The atmosphere definitely makes you feel like you are in historic new york with an Italian vibe. However, once your food arrives you will be sadly disappointed by the quality. The Burratta was rubbery and flavorless. The veal piccata was small and lacked proper seasoning. The prices on the menu are also a bit ridiculous for the portion size and quality. I truly would not eat here again.

They were able to accomodate our party of 11 and everyone from the coat check, host, bartendar and waiting staff were incredible. No one made us feel as if we were more than they could handle with a party of this size. The food was outstanding.

This was our fourth visit to Lattanzi. We have been very pleased each time. There was a little problem with my meal this time. For some reason, my Osso Bucco was very salty-not the norm. I was asked if I wanted something else, I got the Bronzini special that came our quickly, done to perfection!
This problem was handled PERFECTLY. It showed that even if a mistake is made, the professionalism of the waitstaff, backed up by a superb kitchen, keeps Lattanzi high on our list of places to enjoy as an everyday eatery or for special occasion with good friends and family. We will continue to love the food and ambiance there. When you go there, you will see how special Lattanzi is.
