Masseria dei Vini (Masseria of Wines) is the new venture brought to you from the La Masseria Team.
Restauranteur Pino Coladonato, Peppe Iuele and Enzo Ruggiero have teamed up again with Interior Designer Libby Langdon, bringing you a modern update version of "Masseria". In the region of Puglia, in South Italy, Masseria were Fortified Farmhouses, and many of them now have been transformed into Restaurants or Hotels.
Executive Chef Pino Coladonato, native of Rutigliano (Bari), has created a menu that blends traditional with modern without overpowering one or the other.
The Menu features typical dishes from Puglia, such as "Crudo", the Italian word for "Raw", made with fish and shellfish, a lot of fresh homemade pastas and Ravioli.
The menu also offers Gourmet Pizza Neapolitan style.
The Restaurant offers an extensive wine by the glass program and a large selection of wine bottles, mainly from Italy, but without ignoring the rest of the world.

I don’t believe in “5 stars” for the vast majority of restaurants and the next best choice offered is “4”, so that’s what I’ll give it, but the food was outstanding and much better than 4. Really good pasta and apps, very nice room and decor, somewhat pricey but worth it.

This was my second visit to Masseria dei Vini and it was terrific again. The delicious food was thoughtfully and authentically prepared and the staff was friendly and attentive. The only issue we had was that my dining companion and I ordered 2 appetizers, 2 salads, and then shared a pizza, but they brought the appetizers and salads together. We dealt with it, but we assumed that it was obvious that we wanted them spaced out into 3 courses.

I have eaten in this restaurant three times over five years while visiting. Each meal was superb. However, it is not for the single diner, alas. As I often travel alone , that is very frustrating to me. I almost skipped it tonight in favor of a more welcoming scenario. I would have probably missed a great meal. The wine list is truly excellent!

Outstanding service, from the minute we walked in to when we left. Staff was very attentive but not overbearing, keeping the table clear, water filled, etc... Food was excellent, many wonderful dished to choose from, and was very pleased. My only "complaint" is that it is very noisy, making it hard to hear the others in your party. I think it may be because of the low ceilings, but it definitely is somewhat distracting

Had an early dinner prior to the ballet and location was great for this purpose. Service was professional and efficient. Food selection was more than adequate to cover range of guest tastes including vegetarian. Everyone was happy with their selections and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Masseria de Vini.

Everything was fine except for the service. He never really took us seriously I guess cause we didn't look the type to go to such a fancy place. That kind of ruined the night. But the food ambiance and all was good.

I was expecting something special and there was nothing special about it. Overpriced, unimaginative first courses. My wife had an a second app. that she liked, I had a pasta bolognese with a tagliatelle that was essentially German egg noodles, and a sauce as clumsey as the noodle. It took 10 minutes to get to order our drinks before dinner. My second course arrived and I had to track down the waiter to get a wine list. I was halfway through my pasta before he brought a glass of wine without ever bringing the wine list. Strange, given there were 3 managers and hostesses on the floor. Too many generals, no army. Very disappointing night for $100.00 a head. Pretty clear they have lost their way.

I ordered an artichoke salad thinking that it would be a raw artichoke salad - i.e. Insalata Bianca. But it was marinated artichokes - my fault for not asking.
Then I ordered a grilled Dover Sole based on the waiter's recommendation. It was tasteless - probably frozen. But, to his credit, the waiter took it off the tab.
Overall, we were very impressed with the attentive care we got from all the wait-staff. But the food was not authentic Italian and very disappointing.
