Romantic Post-theater Resturaunt. I had gotten a reccomendation from a friend about this Resturaunt when asking for a nice place to take a date and I was not dissapointed in the least. If you want authentic Italian food in an authentic Italian atmosphere, this is the place for you. We went for a late dinner after seeing a show and the service and food were phenomenal. My date loved her primavera pasta, and my chicken piccata was just the way I like it, lemony and with lots of capers. I would definitely go again, especially after the pre-theater rush, as the waiter told me it gets pretty jammed before 8:00.
wonderful roman cuisine.
I went to Lattanzi with a group of friends pretheatre with out reservations.Fully packed!The Maitre di was kind enough to seat us in 5minutes.
We ordered Jewish artichokes and the specials Black taglionini homemade pasta.The boys attended to us quickly and we got our food service instantly.I highly recommend.
One of my favorite Italian Resturant right now..
My experience at Lattanzi Restaurant was one of the best so far.Thsi family/owned restaurant is very personable.The atmosphere is cozy and warm.
My waiter are amazingly attentive and accomodating.The food especially the Jewish artichokes and handmade pasta dishes is so delicious.
Matzoh bread is to die for!!
Great place to dine with your family if you want to eat authentic Italian food.
Avoid this place.
the worst excuse for italian food i have ever had inflicted on me.....and the exhorbitant prices add insult to injury. the pasta was rubbery and bland. and the sauce that was supposed to come with it was apparently fictitious.you will find better quality "italian" food in a can of chef boyardee.
do not waste your time and effort in going to "eat" at this disaster of culinary talent or lack thereof. if only they had a flaming dish on the menu....i would have ordered it and hoped the flames would have engulfed the entire surroundings, thereby saving other unfortunate souls from this swill.
Like one of the Family....
I love this place and I love the staff and I don't say that lightly. This is a family owned/run restaurant which extends that familiarity and acceptance to its customers. I come once a week religiously and have the most amazing dinner and wine.
The first time I came here I was flirted with shamelessly and looked after and attended to like a famous person and that was with Judge Judy sitting two tables down....that hasn't changed. Judge Judy takes turns with David Mamet and the cast of Saturday NIght Live and a few other famous faces I've give a second glance too, but they still treat everyone with the same jovial smiles, twinkles in the eyes and willingness to bend over backwards and make your experiences unforgettable.
I come every week and sometimes more often if I'm in the city. I enjoy eating this food. Muwa! It's amazing!
Some of my favorites:
Jewish style artichokes
The spinach gnocchi
Chicken Paillard (my favorite) with a side of Veggies (yum yum!)
The chocolate Mousse! - with xtra strawberries!
Excellent Italian. We had dinner for six people before seeing Memphis, we were running a little late for our reservation, yet they held our table on a busy Friday night. We let the waiter know we were going to a show so we wanted to order within a few minutes of arriving. The service was excellent, very attentive and on top of every detail. We ordered off the pre-theater dinner menu which provided lots of variety. The food was served hot, great taste, and nice presentation. You will enjoy your dinner!
amazing. I had dinner at last Saturday. The food was amazing and the wait staff very attentive and approachable, just really nice. I also liked the atmosphere very much. We were seated on time and it was very romantic . It is amazing how the cooks can make pasta taste that great! This place is definitely worth waiting for! And it won't even cost you a fortune. The best Italian in town. Just amazing!
Flawless 40th Birthday Party.
My husband and I have been Lattanzi fans for nearly 15 years. We have eaten there with friends, family, clients and colleagues. I lived in Rome, and I am selective about which restaurants I recommend and where I eat Italian. I know that eating at Lattanzi will satisfy any (and every) Italian food lover ?even my boss.
My husband and I recently hosted a friend?s birthday (a big one) party at Lattanzi. Planning the party with Lattanzi was a breeze. The food ? artichokes, red snapper, veal chop with mushrooms, fettuccini and other dishes, some vegetarian- was fantastic. The service was warm, informative and really good-natured. We had some hard to please eaters on the guest list, but the staff patiently recommended and explained dishes, and everyone had a wonderful time. The party was everything we wanted it to be and while not inexpensive, definitely worth it and a great experience.
a New Yorker's favorite spot.
I love Lattanzi! It's my local restaurant. I go their when I am entertaining friends and clients. I work in sales and need a restaurant which is going to be consistently great each time I go there. Lattanzi does the job!
I love the little bar in the back of their restaurant. I usually start with an appetizer of sauteed artichokes ( i think it is their house specialty) and a cocktail. Then for dinner, I love to share a plate of homemade pasta (if dining with friends and family)and then something else, like veal scallopini marsala. Yummy!
Eddie is one of the maitre d.'s. He's a charmer! The service is great, and the price is reasonable.
25 Years and still one of the best. Those who do not love this reataurant do not know real Italian food. One of the best in America, not just New York. Roman-Jewish cuisine with a Sicilian background. The best Mozzarella, Artichokes, White Clam suce in town. To taste it at it's best go after 8 O'clock and not on Monday, when the head Chef is usually off. A real treat, besides the food, is It remains a Ristoranrte that you can talk in and be comfortable, a trait slowly evaporating in New York. A must go to if you love real Italian food. P.SW. if you have room the Napolean is the best anywhere
