Italian
La Masseria Restaurant is inspired from ancient fortified farmhouses that in the Puglia Region of Italy are called “Masseria”. Executive Chef/Co-Owner, Pino Coladonato, grew up on a Farm in Puglia. He was forced to eat whatever was available but soon was tired of bean puree and decided to take matters into his own hands, creating new ways to use the same few ingredients. Now, with limitless ingredients to choose from, fava beans, chickpeas and lentils are still a core element in many of his entrees. Interior Designer Libby Langdon has created a warm, inviting dining atmosphere. Rustic and relaxed, with plenty of old world charm. Oversized iron sconces custom made from antique wrought iron gates punctuate the walls, and artful displays of antique farm tools mixed with various authentic Italian photographs all add to the farmhouse appeal. The wine list encompasses all regions of Italy with few of the best American and the rest of the world.

It was a Saturday night. It got pretty noisy on the upper level. I think the food was good but not exceptional. Still a great place to go for a night out.

We enjoyed our dinner with our friends. Our server was very attentive and the cocktails & food were excellent. My only issue would be where we were seated - the table closest to the door in the bar area. Next time I’ll be sure to request a table upstairs. Much quieter.

My wife and I were out for a date night. We noticed the white truffle specials due to the season and decided to pair wine with our meal. One of the managers,Manny, came to recommend some wines. As we chatted about pairings, he suggested that he make some special dishes for us that were not part of the regular menu. What happened next was like being treated to a private chefs meal with wine pairings that were incredible. We’ve been here many times with many great meals, but this was truly memorable.

Went to La Masseria for my daughter’s birthday. Food was very good including appetizers (Eggplant Rollatini and Cheese/Meat platter made the family really happy). All 6 dishes including Pork Shank, Ravioli with mushroom Demi seafood past, a Steak and Branzino. Wait staff was attentive and there when we needed them. A steak came a bit rare and they fixed it quickly and to the diner’s satisfaction. We had 3 deserts to share (Ricotta Cheesecake, Tiramisu, Creme Brûlée) and all were extremely good. Wine and food were expensive ($75/person), particularly the wine but the quality was excellent.

The food at La Masseria is typically very good and, on our last two visits, the waitstaff has been attentive and friendly. The only rub, is the front of the house staff, who are very often not welcoming but literally dismissive, with a general attitude that you should feel special just because they decided to find a seat for you. Even with a reservation, you can find yourself left standing around the bar area, ignored, until someone finally gets around to seating you.

Nice restaurant with authentic Italian cuisine. I had the veal chop and would recommend the chef do something more unique with the vegetable medley. It totally lacked the creative appeal that one would expect from an entree of this type and price point. However, some of the more traditional dishes looked amazing so I would not judge the team based on a single dish. The taste of the food was excellent. The bread basket could be improved as well. Just get more creative and spark a conversation about various presentations. It's a high end restaurant and one would expect a unique experience.... Thanks.

This small restaurant should definitely be on your short list. The martinis were perfect.
Best veal chop, ever. Service was very good. This restaurant is a keeper. No need
to drive to Providence.

Amazing lunch & shockingly reasonable prices. I’ve been to their restaurant in Palm Beach Gardens Florida and this one in Rhode Island is so much better I couldn’t believe it was the same restaurant. It was the best homemade pasta I ever had in my life.

Nine of the family celebrated my brother's 70th birthday and we could not have been happier. Danny, the waiter, was attentive and the food was delicious. Our first time there and will visit again.

The food was good but not outstanding as we expected. We,had been waiting three weeks to finally get a reservation so I think it was a letdown from what we expected. Not bad though.

We have been here many times. Never disappointed with food or service.
We are early diners so usually all the tables are not filled, but this time they were very busy (understandably as the food is so good.)
Because of the noise level in the dining area opposite the bar, conversation was difficult and we missed hearing clearly all the specials being offered.
Perhaps some kind of acoustical treatment to the ceiling or wall would help.

Thank you.
