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.

Made a last-minute reservation here and arrived at the appointed hour. Then waited 20 minutes to be seated. Greeter carefully avoided eye contact during the wait. It appears they squeezed in an extra table outdoors, right by the door, to accommodate us. Service from our server was good, attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. She told us about the appetizer special being clams casino. We started with that. Clams were obviously local and fresh, and this was the highlight of the meal. Entrees were salmon and veal cutlet with mushrooms. The proteins were OK, nothing special. Vegetables were good. Polenta was particularly tasteless.

Absolutely delicious Italian cuisine...from the appetizers to the salad and entree - fresh, perfectly executed dishes. This was our first visit and we were very pleasantly surprised at how outstanding everything was! Only negative would be the wait time for our table when we had a reservation. Otherwise, food and service five stars!!

First time dining at La Masseria. For appetizers we shared clams casino and fritto misto. Delicious! My guy have the veal chop. Large portion and very tender. I had the sole francaise which was wonderful. All the food was very flavorful and cooked perfectly! We will definitely be back!

Ordered 2 special and two on the menu items
Special-$26 for a linguini in clam sauce. Yummy homemade pasta but a tiny amount ( maybe a cup) served with 12 clams no bigger than a half of a dime? Yikes!
Special- 2 small pieces of veal with fontina and truffle $36?
Menu- rabbit was delicious and so was the eggplant with smoked mozzarella over pasta
Stick with the menu for best value and portion.

Our service from Eric for 8 of us was impeccable. It was a dreadfully hot night and the air conditioning was malfunctioning, apparently for sometime.
We felt there should have been either a heads up about this situation or some accommodation on the bill.
The food was exceptional and as I mentioned, the service was terrific.

What a wonderful restaurant to celebrate a special occasion or simply enjoy an authentic Italian Sunday dinner with family and friends. Inventive cuisine, fresh, and abundant portions. Warm service. Convivial atmosphere. Only caveat would be some menu items were a bit steep in price. Overall worth it.

It is great to have an authentic Italian restaurant in East Greenwich. However, my table for 3 was very small and the room was very noisy. I would like to see some variance on the menu especially because we go there often.
I am vegetarian and would like to see more meals in this category.
Thank you.

I frequent La Masseria and Saturday evening was not only the worst service I've experienced there - it was the poorest restaurant service I've had anywhere in over a year. Our server was inattentive and borderline rude. It was quite busy and typically is on a Saturday. He was delayed in coming to our table which was fine, but when he did arrive, he didn't ask us if we wanted cocktails he just jumped to telling us the specials. Then said, "Oh, do you want a drink too." We eventually ordered, got our drinks, and then we didn't see him again until after dinner (I'm not joking.) I was trying to order a glass of wine before the food came out and eventually had to flag him over and ordered it. Our food came out, and no wine. Our server never came by to ask how the meal was, so I had to go find him because I was nearly 75% done w/ my meal and still no wine. Finally, no one had come to replenish our empty water glasses and so we had to ask the man clearing our plates who was pleasant and said he'd get someone. Our waiter then reappeared and started to ask about dessert - when someone came over to fill our clearly EMPTY water glasses and was about to pour when our waiter said "No. Go over to that table." We were all stunned and protested that we wanted water, and his reply was "He'll be right back." I explained we had asked for the water because they had been empty for some time. I told him then it was the worst service we had ever had there. I brought friends from CT and frankly was quite embarrassed. I will only sit at the bar with Jimmy going forward.

My guests had the lobster and pasta dish. They both said the flavor was good but the lobster meat was chewy which usually is because it was frozen. I had the veal and mushrooms which was very good.
The gnocchis with cheese sauce was pretty good, but not an exciting plate.
Great ambiance, great interior but noticed the floor upstairs was sticky.
Had the ricotta cheesecake. I appreciated the fact that the desserts appear to be made on site.
I had a martini and it was the best one I ever had. Extremely smooth.
Our waitress was very personable and professional and knowledgeable of the menu and ingredients.
Overall it was pretty good but honestly not worth the price. However I will try it again as this was my first visit.

Our request to be seated upstairs was honored. The appetizer of pistachios, avocado and shaved parmesan cheese was exceptional! I will definately order it again if available! My husband raved about his Veal Chop! My Veal with mushrooms was slightly over done, but not enough to return it. Service was excellent. A lovely evening.

The food was not as advertised. The aged prime rib steak was nothing of the sort. In fact it was just a choice cut. Very disappointing! My dinner guests were appalled by the arrogance of the staff with the exception of the waiter who was very polite and attentive. Not worth the time or money.
