Lattanzi Ratings and Reviews
The food at Lattanzi is good. My guest had the branzino which she loved. I had the veal special
which was excellent. I had been to the restaurant before and was looking forward to returning.
I have to say I was unhappy with the table I was given. It was in a very busy passageway and it
was difficult to enjoy the dinner. My request for a different table was denied upon arrival
even though I made reservations weeks ahead of time. I will try Lattanzi again but at a different table.
Lattanzi is a lovely neighborhood restaurant near the theaters. The grilled vegetables are a nice appetizer. The fish dishes and veal dishes are very good. The service is very good and their food is consistently good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Our dining experience at Lattanzi started off promising but ended with disappointment. We had excellent drinks and tasty appetizers but our entrées left a lot to be desired. We spent almost $250 for four people who were hoping their last dinner for their NYC trip would be fabulous.
Of note, the arugula salad with shaved parmesan and pears was very good...fresh and tasty. The asparagus appetizer had overcooked asparagus. The veal special for my entrée and the veal was tough, marsala sauce salty and the steamed vegetables totally mushy. The seafood mixed grill was three pieces of slightly overcooked fish with hardly and seasoning and no sauce accompanied by the same mushy vegetables. The sea bass entrée was good with a delicate sauce that complimented the fish nicely. Unfortunately, it had the same mushy vegetables the other entrées had. Having crisp vegetables would have made a huge difference! The last entrée was pasta filled with ricotta and spinach which was fine but the pasta was tough in some areas. It was served with a red sauce that was tasty but nothing special.
I wish I had done more research on the restaurant before selecting it because the place was half empty at 7:30 pm which told us a lot. I try really hard to give places the benefit of the doubt but in this case think Lattanzi should consider putting more care into their cooking.
Was very disappointed in this visit. Not up to par as we have come to expect. We were in the early dinner seating and they ran out of the specials and did not tell us for 45 minutes while we were waiting on our order. At the last minute, the waiter informed us of not having the specials. Not acceptable on a Saturday evening for the first seating. Need to plan better for their specials. Had a show to catch, so made a substitution we knew would not take long to prepare. We have had a better showing at Lattanzi in our past visits. Hope this was just an off night for them.
This used to be our favorite pre theater restaurant but not anymore. This was the second time recently that they were out of the artichokes appetizer (their signature dish!). Service was bad and my husband said his lasagna bolognese was inedible. Not sure what happened to Lattanzi I am so disappointed.
Our waiter seemed to desert us after our drink order...The table next to us was seated after us and had their appetizers before someone even took our dinner order.
We had to hunt down an alternate waiter who also didn't seem very happy about taking our order...We're thinking he was the Maitre'de- but there was no apology for the delay and even an eye roll or two during the process... yes-we noticed....The food was good but the experience as a whole was not very...appetizing....
Lattanzi is one of our favorite restaurants in NYC. Everything about it it wonderful. From the moment you walk in the door you feel like family. The atmosphere is great, the service is amazing and the food is outstanding. We make a point of going every time in the city! One visit to NYC we actually ate there twice because it was so good! Who does that in NYC with so many amazing restaurants?!!!
Had dinner at Lattanzi's before seeing Hamilton down the street. We were in New York for a week and that was the best meal we had hands down. I am not particularly fond of Italian food, but the menu has many offerings. Service was superior. Food was fantastic. We had reservations and were seated as soon as we walked in the door. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I took their card on the way out to keep in my NYC file for my next visit. I will definiately be returning and taking my friends to enjoy their great food. BTW: The artichokes are phenominal!!
We had an amazing pre dinner gathering. I often find theater district restaurants to be mediocre at best. This was just lovely. Not a tourist trap. I loved the atmosphere and service was impeccable. Dinner was leisurely and refined. I look forward to another visit soon.
this was my second time visiting Lattanzi. Both times I found the food to be quite good, ample portions, and a good selection of foods, pasta, steak, etc. I was, however, extremely disappointed this time because when I called to make a reservation, I was assured by the woman who answered the phone that the restaurant would be able to accommodate my daughter's food allergy, and in particular had pasta without dairy and egg. I was told when I got there that this was not the case, all the pasta is made in house and has egg in it. Not only was she disappointed, but the alternative was a very expensive steak. I will say the waiter was very accommodating, but I wish we had been given the proper information up front. Strange that this would have been answered so quickly and cavalierly. It put a damper on a special night for us.
We were VERY late for our reservation so we sat at the bar. Place was packed before theater. Bar server was nice efficient and entertaining. In general the staff was great. We all enjoyed our meal (would have liked a small pasta side dish with the main, but this is Manhattan)
On this particular occasion, we dined here after a Broadway matinee and, as usual, our meal was impeccably prepared and presented. Service was excellent--attentive yet unobtrusive. I have dined here many times over the years and I have never been disappointed. Lattanzi continues to be my go-to restaurant when in the Theater District.
PRE-THEATRE LUNCH WITH A FRIEND ON A BEAUTIFUL SPRING DAY WAS DELIGHTFUL...AS MEALS ALWAYS ARE AT LATTANZI. OUR FOOD WAS REALLY DELICIOUS. THE SERIVCE UNOBTRUSIVE BUT EFFICIENT AND PLEASANT. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT WHEN WE BOOK THROUGH OPEN TABLE WE ARE ALWASY SEATED IN THE BACK ROOM.
IT WAS, AS ALWAYS, A LOVELY LUNCH.
Upon arrival, we immediately felt the warm homey atmosphere of the restaurant. We were seated in a quiet corner near a fireplace but, obviously, not a burning fireplace in this warm weather, which led even more to the homey atmosphere. The waiters were amenable to immediate response or delayed response, depending upon what we wanted, because my friends and I hadn't seen each other for a year or two and we wanted to have our drink and chat for a while. Attention was ours when we wanted or needed it, as the waiter(s) were readily available.
We did order and each of the three of us ordered a different entre. My friend and I split a delicious "green" salad prior to our pasta main courses. Each of us was completely satisfied with what we called our delicious main course. I found mine to be excellent and unique in flavor and surprisingly ate the "whole thing," as the saying goes. I didn't want to stop. My friends felt the same.
All in all, a most rewarding, enjoyable and delicious evening in a homey welcoming atmosphere.
