It may be due to COVID, butI feel it's expensive a bit.

Great Resturant with some of the best food NY has to offer. Started with the octopus in warm red tomato sauce, very flavorful. Wife does not care for octopus but she loved it as well. She had prosciutto and homemade mozzarella which was great. Main courses of pasta carbonara with homemade pasta excellent she had spaghettis with tomatoes and garlic. She is Italian and said the garlic had been shaved so thin you could see through it and then pan roasted before being added to the sauce. Sauce was made of peeled sweet tomatoes which she loved. Desserts were great. We had all three but the Hazelnut Cake was the best. it was an 11 and the tiramisu and raspberry tart were a 10+ each. All homemade. We had a booth inside which was lovely. Huge 2 story dining room. They even had a coat check girl which was a nice touch. We will definitely return soon. Make a reservation and ask for a booth. There are only a few of them but very nice, other tables are great too but if you can get a booth it is nice.

We went there for Valentine’s Day and the service was exceptional! We sat outside in one of their enclosed cabins. It had a heater and adjustable window/vents. All the service staff asked before they entered our cabin and were very attentive. Everyone was wearing masks. The food was great! I got the carbonara and my husband got the bolognese and they were both delicious. We also got their apple gelato which was wonderful. Enormous wine selection. A safe and enjoyable dining experience.

Casa lever never disappoints you, service is excellent and food is really good. Now at that moment have an ver good outdoor seating, because it’s not near the street. We love cacio e Pepe here, but all pastas are good, and crudos.
Good place.

Two of us - We ordered a pasta and a fish . The pasta arrived 15 min later so we had disjointed dinner .
Fish was good, pasta mediocre.

We all thought the food and service excellent. The restaurant has made an effort to provide a good, sheltered outdoor space.

We thought the prices high, even though we are used to NYC dining.

Casa Lever outdoors is only open in the summer under the overhang on the North West corner of Park & 53rd. It is always very good and fun. This year they exceeded the virus safe guards, ( e. g. they ripped up the menus) so you felt quite safe.
