This past summer, during one of my Broadway theatre excursions, I was about to search for a nearby Restaurant to the Walter Kerr Theatre on West 48th Street and 8th Avenue.
I wasn't aware of this fabulous restaurant situated on the corner of West 48th Street, and 8th Avenue. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the staff was welcoming and personal. Our waiter just happened to be from my grandfather's home town of Taormina, Sicily, so we struck up quite a conversation about this lovely Sicilian town, causing him great yearning as he broke out the pictures and shared his memories of his homeland.
Irene and Mom selected the Homemade Fettucini Bolognese whereas, I chose the Spaghetti with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil. The tomato sauce was light and flavorful on my dish and being a fresh "Basilico" (Basil) freak, I was thrilled to see lots of it on my Spaghetti!
I highly recommend La Masseria for a memorable meal!
