Hands down best authentic Italian in town. And the wine list is great! We have tried the Sunday sauce and the Gnocchi, both are fantastic.

My husband and I visited for a quick dinner. We were once again not disappointed. The cavatelli with white lamb ragu was amazing. My husband enjoyed his ravioli bolognese. Wine is wonderful. Michael took care of us. And is a waiter who knows his audience. Please commend him on customer service. It was also very nice to be recognized by your staff as repeat customers. Thank you for another amazing dinner. Amazing shaved black truffle on perfectly homemade gnocchi. OMG. This dish was delicious. Complimentary house made limoncello brought me back to the hotel across from Fountaine de Trevi. The best. Delicious and spicy. For extremely authentic Italian as Rome, Nepals etc. this is a must visit.

Superb meal, we had spaghetti with meat sauce along with meatballs. The best flavor I’ve ever had, so rich! Great Titos Martini as well!

Masseria is an authentic Italian restaurant with a variety of starters, pasta, meat, fish, and the most delicious dessert that I have eaten, the fresh ricotta cheesecake … very friendly and professional service and a very pleasant atmosphere.

My husband and I dined at La Masseria on Saturday evening. The restaurant came highly recommended from a Native Italian gentleman who swore to us that the food was authentic. It’s quite difficult to find any authentic Italian food in the area., but much to our surprise, this place was amazing. The atmosphere is chic and included several modern touches that made us so excited to try the food. We LOVED the truffle ravioli with egg inside. We allowed our server to choose our wine. It was lovely, and at reasonable price point ($70). Service was terrific…just the right mix of fun and professional. The manager came over to our table and welcomed us. Plus…all tables are offered a complimentary house made limoncello at the end of dinner. This is a refreshing change from being charged for something that is traditionally given as a digestive. We’ve tried every Italian place in the area and are usually disappointed in the decor, food, or staff attitude (sometimes all three). La Masseria exceeded our expectations. We were already planning what we’d order the next time on the ride home! Thank you for giving us such a wonderful evening.

I’m a fan of La Masseria. The décor is sophisticated and sleek with a more casual feel at the outside bar. We had wonderful service and I love the GM, Massimo. I really enjoyed the Polpettine alla Fontelina eggplant cakes, my Branzino entree was presented tableside and then filleted beautifully. My husband requested a Veal Parmigiana (not on the menu), which was accommodated and practically spilled off every edge of the plate. We split a dish of the Gnocchi al Taleggio e Raddicchio which felt like eating fluffy clouds of potato pasta in a creamy taleggio sauce. The pastas are all prepared in-house and it shows. The cheesecake was smooth and creamy and it had the perfect hint of vanilla. They have a great wine list and Massimo makes a FANTASTIC Limoncello in-house. We’ll definitely be back.

Food was absolutely delicious. Homemade Lemoncello is best I ever had – same with gnocci and tiramisu and ricotta pie – staff was unsurpassed!

Being of Italian descent I can tell you that this restaurant is authentic. Just like home cooking. Honestly the broccoli rape could’ve had a little more garlic, but was cooked to perfection nonetheless. We also had a pasta entrée each which was phenomenal. The service was excellent. The staff spoke Italian and brought the recipes from Italy. Can’t get more authentic than that. I will definitely be back.

Let’s start off with a WOW!! I have dinned all over the world from memorable Mom and Pop eaterys to fine dinning in world capitals but what I experienced the other night at La Masseria was extraordinary! There were 6 of us eating and basically we all ended up grabbing a bite from each other’s apps , entrees and desserts because everyone’s particular item was so good you just had to try it! On top of the amazing food the service was nearly flawless. If I wanted to impress anyone this is where I’d bring them !

We had a great experience. They have done a beautiful job with the decor. The service was first class and our server was attentive and informed.

The table bread was really special and was served with a dipping oil with lentils and garlic. The entrees were delicious and both well prepared and attractively presented. We finished up with cappuccino and cheesecake. The ricotta cheesecake was so creamy and delicious!

Definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful atmosphere with absolutely beautiful decor. We had a Monday night 6:30 reservation and were seated on time. Our server was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The food presentation was as lovely as the decor. My rack of lamb was delicious as was the calves liver. However the pounded veal chop was too thin and dry. Pasta dishes and appetizers were very good. Service became a bit fragmented when we finished our meal and we waited quite some time for espresso and only one was served with tiny biscotti out of the three of us. Wine list by the glass can be upgraded to meet the quality and diversity of the menu. All said we will definitely be back! One of the new gems on PGA Blvd!

Fantastic. Rolled mozzarella appetizer was fab. Slow roasted rabbit melted in your mouth. Calamari just delectable. But the homemade Tiramisu knocked me off my seat. Service by Carlos was impeccable. Just a perfect evening. Will be a regular.

It was tremendous! Food was exquisite, with incredible combinations and savory sauces. The decor of granite, marble, Grey with white trim was elegant. A very classy upscale Italian which lives up to its stellar reputation in NYC. Owner Eddie Ricci has done an outstanding job and assembled seasoned staff, particularly Susie behind the bar, well respected Roberto Cavaliere as manager, and Enzo. The service was top-notch and I look forward to going many more times and eating through a journey of the menu.
