Lattanzi Ratings and Reviews

Authentic Italian food preparation. Limited menu, but that only assures that the kitchen can deliver whatever was ordered in a timely fashion. There were enough things on the menu that I would have had, so we will go back.

Went with a few family members, and we all enjoyed our meals. Service was professional and unobtrusive, and we were never rushed. Although the room was fairly crowded, the noise level was quite low, making it possible to have a conversation without shouting to make oneself heard. Low-key, relaxing atmosphere. Menu prices seemed to be fairly standard for comparable NY restaurants. Would definitely be happy to go back.

Fantastic night brought my mam as it was her 70th birthday and her 1st time to newyork from the moment we arrived the staff to the service and to singing to my mam the customers even got in on the celebration would recomend lattanzi and hope to return food amazing well done

Warm welcome. Impeccable service. Varied selection. Too good-to-be true specials of the day. Fabulous wine list. Delicious desserts. Perfectly timed for theatre performances. Always want to return. Still dreaming of the artichokes.

We have eaten here quite a number of times. This was the first time we were very disappointed. We got there about 5:00 for a 7:00 PM show, which should have been plenty of time for a nice dinner. The service and food was not up to their normal standards. By the time everything was served and it was time for dessert and coffee, it was too close to show time. When we received the check, the bottle of wine (approx. $ 60.00) was not included. When we told the server, he replied "Oh we have a new system", not even a thank you for bringing it to my attention. We have recommended this restaurant quite often. Not going to recommend again.

This is one of our favorite restaurants for after theatre. Wait staff is efficient but not intrusive. You do not have to ask for a water glass to be refilled. I had the chicken milanese and my husband had the veal chop milanese. Both were excellent. Good value for the money.

The restaurant was a cool respite on a hot summer's day. Service was attentive without being overbearing. The food was fresh and delicious.
We decided to try several appetizers instead of ordering individual meals. This turned out to be a wise choice. We got to sample more dishes and flavors than had we ordered a meal. I would definitely go back if I'm in the neighborhood.

We arrived early and were seated quickly. Unlike every other NYC restaurant that had my allergies and special occasion information beforehand Lattanzi was not aware of either. We shared me allergies and then got a surprise when the food came with some of the problem foods. My husbands food an artichoke gnocchi was presented well and he reported tasted good. Mine went back to the kitchen. When returned the chicken had two versions - one way too tough and the other way too fatty. A surprise was inside as well one of the allergens made its way onto the plate. The vegetables that came with the food were quite good. When the allergen was pointed out they apologized and removed the item from the bill. The outcome was I ate elsewhere. Disappointed in the experience. I wonder if the poultry chef had an off night.

Lattanzi is a great place with pleasant ambiance. The noise level is low compared to many places. Service was outstanding as we were seated on arrival at a nice table for two in a corner area. The wait staff was prompt, timely and helpful. We tried the Montepulciano wine which was very good. The pasta was "home made" and delicious. The salmon was very good, moist but a large portion. Overall a very nice place on Restaurant Row. We plan to return and recommend Lattanzi to our friends who visit NYC.

I felt they made no effort with the food. My meal was just barely room temperature and I doubt it had been recently cooked. Their beer selection was especially poor; no Heineken? How hard is that? I have been there before when in NYC and it was much better. The restaurant needs to change hands.

Beautifully decorated, quaint restaurant, with a romantic feel. We went for dinner and the tables were dresses with white table linens, a nicely lit candlestick and fresh flowers. The staff was very attentive and food was fresh and absolutely delicious. I would definitely return for the ravioli as well as the huge piece of chicken parmigiana. They even accommodated my mother in law with a gluten free pasta entree and she loved it!! This is a little gem definitely worth the $$.

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. I found the service cold, abrupt and off-putting. I arrived first. I use a cane. The man who seated me did not pull out a chair for me. Whether or not I was using a cane, he should have--but most especially because I was using one. Waiter was terse and aloof. You could hardly finish the course before someone was snatching the dish out from under you. I was served one course without any flatware--had to ask for it. There were more than enough staff. The restaurant was busy, but not full.
On the other hand, the food is absolutely delicious, first-rate. I can't say enough about it. They even make their own mozzarella--which was absolutely scrumptious--even though the tomatoes weren't very good in the caprese salad. My friend's salmon was cooked perfectly and very delicious. I had chicken. Again, perfection. Cheesecake dessert was one of the best cheesecakes I ever had--and not too sweet. Really lovely.
They also charged for something I sent back (just because it wasn't to my liking, not bad), and then claimed they had made a mistake. ?! And lastly, the restaurant was empty when I left. My friend had to leave to make a curtain so I walked out alone. Lots of staff standing around, no one thanked me for coming. Or opened the door. I'd have to say that all the grace notes are missing.
I think I will try it again because of the truly excellent food. Just wish the atmosphere and treatment were a little more friendly.

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!

Dined here with my Mother (at her recommendation) before heading to a show. Not sure how she came across Lattanzi, but I was very happy with her selection. We were seated in a small room to the rear, just before the "glass room" which was quiet and nicely lit with some natural lighting. The service was courteous, attentive, and our food arrived fairly quickly considering it was a busy Friday night. We very much enjoyed our choices and the portions were good. We were slightly late for our show even though we had given ourselves two hours to eat, but not by the fault of the restaurant. The ambiance contributed to comfort and extensive conversation, causing us to lose track of time. My only complaint would be the parking situation, as there are limited lots in the area. 46th Street also gets very jammed up, so give yourself some extra time to get to/from the restaurant - especially if you are using Uber, etc.

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!
