La Masseria RI
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.
Consistently expert service and cuisine. I have never had a bad meal here. I
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.
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.
Eric our waiter was the best. Thanks for a great experience!
Excellent quality food with great service. They have good special offerings too.
Love this place. Consistently fantastic food! Generous portions.
Everything and everyone is perfect! Food is exceptional, service is amazing, and the ambiance is awesome! I’d highly recommend to everyone. In fact, it’s the only restaurant that all of my family can agree on!
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.
This is one of the best authentic Italian restaurants I have been too and frequent often. The service and cuisine is pristine. I can’t say anything negative about the service or food! Their specials are always inventive and enticing.
Buono !!! Osé bravissimo e sa trattare le persone
Nice evening out! Food is delicious, staff is friendly & knowledgeable, atmosphere is relaxing. Our favorite Italian restaurant. We've had dinner @their NYC location as well! Would recommend both places!
Tim was awesome! Attentive service, without being “too much.” Food was amazing.
Overall it was Fantastic. The atmosphere is a little on the hectic side. The f oof was amazing
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.
Great food, excellent service, great spot with real character. Will recommend and be back!
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.
The best food on main and authentic Italian cuisine. I will keep coming back!
We enjoy dining here and the food is always excellent from beginning to end. However, our waiter was assigned too many tables, which caused his service to be spotty and slow.
Dinner was very good had to wait about a half hour with a reservation.
Shared a salad and it was minute compared to most other venues in which we have shared a salad. My homemade pasta dish had diced eggplant with the skin in it - rather acidic. My friend's rigatoni and meat dish was better than mine, but still the sauce had no sweetness at all.
Took my mother here for Mother's Day. The food and service were fabulous. Cozy atmosphere. Definitely will be back.
Moter day. Great time
Food is always outstanding and service was fantastic.
Excellent for as always. Service was great even for such a busy night.
Food was so delicious! Definitely one of our favorite restaurants. The service is outstanding!
Fantastic food. Great service. What an Italian delight !!
What a great dining experience! We sat upstairs, and our seat overlooked a balcony. It was the perfect setting for a gorgeous day. The food was delicious, and the specials were innovative. We can't wait to go back.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal here with our son and daughter in law. Everything about the Italian meal was special from the starter of a small bowl of seasoned lentils with crusty bread to my fancy ravioli filled with an egg in a butter and black truffle oil sauce.
We can’t wait to repeat our visit.
Always a great experience
Overall was a great experience. The food was classic Italian. My dinner was very tasty and cooked to properly. I had the pasta bolognese and my girlfriend had the swordfish that was on special. I got to try her swordfish as well, which had a great texture and very good flavors. The waitstaff was extremely accommodating and friendly. This restaurant is perfect for a romantic date or a small celebration. I would definitely return here and try more of the menu.
We had a great dinner, window seat and the food was outstanding!
I had veal picatta special -veal was excellent 3 potato puffs were a little skimpy; pasta or mashed would have been preferred
Went for dinner , the Ravioli special on Saturday night is me wife’s favorite dish.
