Lattanzi is an elegant-rustic, family owned Italizn restaurant in the heart of Broadway since 1984. Newly renovated, it consists of a skylight patio with open garden, four dining rooms divided between two floors, a bar area at street level and a terrace on the upper floor.
This restaurant serves authentic Italian cuisine including salads, pastas, soups and more.
still loving it! – My secret: If you are not going to the theater, then go to Lattanzi Ristorante after 8pm.
By that time, the pre-theater crowd will have left, and you will be able to calmly enjoy the warm and comfortable atmosphere and really great food without the pre-theater rush. i have been going for years for many different occasions, and still i think the food is as authentic as roman cuisine gets. I always want to get everything on the menu but i always end up ordering the same: bucatini alla amatriciana, (perfectly al dente), carciofi alla giudia (their signature artichoke antipasto) and last but not least, a combination of their desserts (i try to stay light).
i love it and would recommend it anytime!
Treated Terribly – We were mistreated from the second we walked in the door. The coatcheck woman was rude, we were seated by the bathroom, and our server became more hostile as the night progressed. He clearly did not want to be bothered with us. I will not set foot in that place again. I don't recommend it unless you're maybe wearing a mink coat.
good food bad impression – The food at Lattanzi Ristorante was lovely, but the service was comically bad as they tried to get people in and out as soon as possible. We really got a sense that they were just greedy and cashing in on the location. I think that from the moment we sat down at the table it took only about 40 minutes until they brought the bill, before I had finished my coffee.
We were still eating our starters when the mains arrived and they snapped, you done with these or not? And being rushed, I didn't notice that it was this expensive. So I will never ever return to Lattanzi Ristorante and I recommend everyone looking for a relaxed meal to avoid it. Impersonal and unwelcoming.
Good food, but a little pricey – The restaurant was prompt in seating us and the wait staff was very friendly and attentive. My only qualm was that the table was very cramped for four and all the tables in the restaurant were closely spaced. The food was very good and the portions were perfect.
Friendly and Accommodating – Theatre crowd favorite, however; most people don't know it's the true secret - great service and great food AFTER everyone has gone to the shows. The decor and service makes you forget that you are in Midtown. Never feel rushed whenever I visit and am very rarely disappointed with the food. The wait staff allows you to enjoy your company compared to most places that are just trying to turn over the table. Would recommend it to anyone as a must visit if you are craving Italian food.
Service so bad this place should convert to a buffet – I know my title appears sarcastic, but it's really true. I don't have strong opinions on the food one way or the other -- it was ok, not amazing, but then again we ordered very standard dishes. But, please tell me that whoever is hiring the staff at this place had a personal debt to repay, owed a favor to a family friend, had one too many from the wine bottle ... something. There has to be an explantation because this was outrageous. I had no idea there were specials until I left, I dropped a fork as our waiter walked by and he just looked at it without offering me a new one, no mention of dessert before giving us the bill, and I was told there was no more fresh parmesan for my pasta -- even as another patron, who apparently was more important than me and my friend, was getting some. I pressed him on it, and he made a ridiculous excuse along the lines of "oh, i'm glad he found it." As much as I tried to control myself, I had to laugh.
The bottom line: 9th Avenue is the best. If you are thinking of stopping at Lattanzi, keep walking a bit further . There are many great restaurants right around the corner.
one of the best in nyc! buonisimo! – I love dining at Lattanzi restaurant because when I'm there, I truly feel i'm back home in Rome. Rustic and romantic decor together with a courteous staff and attentive service accompany the exquisite authentic roman cuisine. My favorite choices are the carciofi alla giudea, (the restaurant's signature dish) and then bucatini alla amatriciana which you will definetively want to have again should you go back, and the simple fresh mozzarella with tomato and basil, and last but not least, the veal with prosciutto and fontina cheese. Try not to eat all at the same time because you need to leave room for their homemade desserts which you will appreciate more if you can sample a bit of each! (dessert combo). buon appetito!
Biggest waste of money ever – I am usually one to afford any restaurant a second chance. I particularly do not like to publicize my bad experiences because I prefer to believe that it is not the norm. However, this was unreal. I have never sat so long without getting a single glass of water, and the waiter practically rolled his eyes after every question I had. The food was not only bland, but cold. Again, the waiter made a disgusted look when I asked him to heat it up and when he finally decided he had some spare time to bring it back, it was still cold. At this point, my husband and I had to laugh, and we only salvaged the evening by seeing how pathetic this restaurant could be. Well, it did not disappoint. We weren't even asked if we wanted dessert (probably because the waiter could not wait to get rid of us), and he stood over the table as my husband signed the cc bill. If it was up to me (my husband is too nice) I would have left him a penny.
If you want to have a relaxing evening with someone you love, please go elsewhere. The great thing about New York is that with every bad restaurant, there is another great place around the corner. Maybe it was just me -- there are plenty of people submitting reviews here that seemed to have a great experience. But, I just felt obligated to share mine.
Wonderful Italian Dining Experience! – My mother, sisters and I were looking for a nice restaurant in the theater district before seeing Mary Poppins (which was awesome!). I tried to get a reservation at Carmine's and after waiting on the phone for 15 minutes, they told me they were booked. It was a blessing in disguise. I checked on Citysearch for a highly rated Italian restaurant in the Theater District and found Lattanzi. What a great find - from the service, to the food to the ambiance we had one of the nicest dining experiences I have had in years. Some of the meal choices that stand out: Fresh mozzarella appetizer was oustanding (still warm and was made onsite). There was a daily special - Parpadelle homemade pasta osso bucco that was out of this world. Lattanzi is a wonderful restaurant and I will definitely be back!
Best Italian food in New York Today – This restaurant is perhaps one of the best when it comes to Italian food and authenticity. It is personally hands down my favorite. I recommend it to anyone longing for perfect Italian food. The quality of service is superb. You are treated like family the min. you walk in. Everyone is so friendly. (always smiles)
It is very cozy and makes for a very romantic dinner. But it is also perfect to take family and friends. One of my favorite things to also enjoy aside for the food are the cocktails. The have the highest quality of ingredients that makes for fresh cocktails. My personal favorite is "Carla's Sangria."
If you have not been to this restaurant to eat, then you have not eaten at a true Italian restaurant.
