Lattanzi Ratings and Reviews
We went here for dinner before s Broadway show. The decor was quite cozy and charming and we were sat in an outdoor area. Though somewhat pricey, the food was delicious and I enjoyed everything I was served. We had a cold seafood salad appetizer that was good and I had a porcini mushroom ravioli. I also ordered a glass of Prosecco that was excellent. My only complaint was that it took about 30 minutes to get the check, other than that the service was great.
Fabulous food, service and atmosphere (and, an impeccable dirty martini, I might add)! Waitstaff was very attentive without being overbearing at all. 10 people for a pre-theatre dinner was no problem; as we all felt relaxed and not rushed for an enjoyable two hours. Bravo!
Latanzi was a very nice Italian restaurant that seems to specialize in catering to the pre-theater diner. Our food was very good. I had the arugula salad and branzino and my husband had the veal marsala with the house salad. My main reservation was the service. We were given a drinks menu but no one ever came back to take our order until I asked a runner if we could place a wine order. Also the bread was delivered to our table with no oil or butter to accompany it. We were waited on by at least two different waiters but neither took much of an interest in our table. As a result, we did not have time to sample the desserts and still get to the theater on time. Since we arrived at the restaurant at 6:15, I feel this should have been ample time to have a three course meal without rushing to finish up.
Another great meal for Valentine's Day with the wifey. I had the Bronzino and my wife had chicken sorrentino. Both excellent. The service was polite and efficient..but maybe too efficient as we felt a little rushed since we spent only 40 minutes to eat meal including dessert and coffee. I'm sure because it was Valentine's Day.
Also unlike at Becco where you always feel cramped and have the table next to you listening in on your conservation, you have plenty of space at Lattanzi's. Will definitely return!
I was there with my daughter and her friends. We had a variety of entrees including pasta and fish. All of the entrees were excellent. The chocolate mousse and cannolis were amazing. Service was attentive but not overbearing. We go to Lattanzi almost every trip to New York.
It has been a long time since we dined at Lattanzi, but I love their artichoke appetizer, so booked dinner there for pre-theater. We were very impressed with the entire experience. The food was far better than we remembered and the service was excellent. In addition to the artichokes, the bucatini, lamb chops, and veal chop were all delicious. We would return in a second.
This restaurant is located in the theater district, very near Times Square; super busy area of town. We booked our reservation for 9:30 pm, right after our show. We got to the restaurant at 9:35 and the front door was locked; through the windows we could see all tables were set with lit candles and restaurant lights were on; it looked open but oddly there were no dinner guests. None.
We knocked until a lady finally came to the door, to whom we explained that we had reservations and asked if they were open. The lady did not let us in and asked us to wait outside in the cold while she went to get the manager.
Manager showed up annoyed and looked at his watch and said we were 10 mins late. We explained that we had been waiting outside the restaurant for 5 minutes waiting for someone to open because the door was locked, and according to their hours, they closed at 10pm and they had granted us a reservation at 9:30 pm. To which he rudely responded "well, if you wanna eat, come in and eat!" Wow.
Needless to say we no longer wished to stay and be served at this disgraceful establishment and risk them spit on our food. The fact that it was utterly empty at 9:30 pm in such a busy area of town should have given us an idea of what a poor restaurant it is.
We walked to Bicce, the restaurant next door and had a wonderful meal.
My husband and I had dinner at Lattanzi's after a Sunday matinee. The food and service were outstanding. This was the third time eating there and it was wonderful each time. I had artichoke gnocchi with alfredo sauce. I am allergic to red pepper flakes and they substituted the red sauce with alfredo. They were very accommodating and careful to let me know if any items had pepper flakes. The meal was delicious. My husband had tortellini with sausage and loved it.
We shared an amazing dessert of freshly made cannoli's to cap off a great meal. We would definitely return.
Beautiful setting and ambiance. Décor was purposeful and delightful. Salad was fantastic, as was the dessert. Somewhat disappointment by swordfish special--slightly dry and lacking in taste, due to overcooking. Others had lamb special and felt that it was also lacking in overall texture and palate. Otherwise, it was a nice evening and worth a second chance on another occasion. Lattanzi came highly recommended by an outside restaurant owner, so it, indeed, deserves another visit. Cannot beat the blueberry dessert and well blessed salads.
Really good food. Well prepared, excellent service. Moved us upstairs to a nice, cozy table instead of downstairs by the door, without us asking. The coffee was also excellent. Would definitely do this again when attending the theater. Relaxed, delicious, and out in plenty of time for our show.
My friend and I had a very enjoyable post theater dinner here. The house wines were excellent. Even though it was busy, the waiters checked on us regularly. Our only suggestions for improvement would be that the pasta , although tasty, was slightly overdone and we would have liked to be asked if we wanted a second wine.
My wife and I came here before seeing a Broadway show and overall everything met our expectations. The food was good and the prices reasonable. The service was excellent and we would happily come here again. We came on a Friday night with reservations for 545pm and it did fill up pretty fast.
We were greeted graciously for our 5:00 pm reservation and shown immediately to a beautifully decorated table. Service was unobtrusive, attentive, and impeccable. Our meals were delicious. I particularly recommend the Risotto Frutti di Mare and the grilled salmon. Unfortunately bluefish, which was one of our first choices, was not on the menu that evening. That was the only negative note in an otherwise outstanding experience. I recommend Lattanzi Italian Restaurant without hesitation.
The ambience and service are wonderful. However, the famed grilled artichoke dish had a bit of choke, not heart in it and was really boring. The grilled octopus/shrimp was much better. I had the branzino, which was just OK. It wasn't till I finished it that I realized the cheese topping had fallen off and was on the side. So it felt more like a suburban restaurant than one in NY. Maybe that is who they cater to. So OK but not great.
Great ambiance, great food! We celebrated my birthday, there were 6 of us (3 couples). The first judgment when walking in, was that it was a small place, but it's deceiving, because there's another room with a very nice large bar. Although we didn't sit at the bar at all, it might be a nice place to go for a couple of drinks, too. We all enjoyed our dinners, although some of the portions seemed small, but not insufficient. My meat lasagna, however, which was one of the specials, was very large! We all thought that the pasta was homemade on premises. Very good! We all enjoyed the delicious desserts, too. The waiters had suits on, and it made for a very classy atmosphere. We very much enjoyed our dining experience, and would definitely go back again!
