One of the best, if not the best - fine dining experiences in NYC. Start to finish, 10 out of 10.

The best Italian cuisine in NYC! Every course was absolutely delicious from appetizers to desserts. The best artichoke pasta we have ever eaten.

Best service & staff in the city!

Thank you for making my birthday dinner so special!

Casa Lever for business lunch remains one of a small handful of Midtown A listers. The food is reliably excellent, the atmosphere is just right and the service is always attentive. While popular encore items form the menu centerline, the continuous fine tuning assures a freshness and means there is always something a little different to try.

We liked everything about our evening at Casa Lever, from the friendly and attentive greeting at both the coat check and the host stand, to the outstanding food, delightful ambience and service that was attentive but never intrusive. We can’t wait to return.

Nice place, clean with good service. I loved they don’t jam pack people and noise level is low. Food is pricey but it’s also delicious, we ordered the San Daniele, it was delicious, Caprese also lovely and for main course Arrabbiata and Bolognese! Would dine here again !

The pasta was an A+ and I do not give those out so easily. Pasta all'arrabiata was perfection. Grilled Turbot was fantastic. Wonderfully attentive service. A splurge but worth it!

We sat in one of the beautiful booths for dinner. The restaurant is visually stunning and the waitstaff extremely attentive. The food was excellent - although for $57, I expected a larger osso buco than I received. The pasta dishes are reasonably priced and delicious. In all, Casa Lever provided us a with wonderful dining experience.

Everything was excellent, but they had an octopus appetizer as a special and it was cooked to perfection, tender and moist on the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside. I had to order a second serving.

A delight to dine there- the interior design is one of our favorites. Missed the Andy Warhol art on the walls. Service was very nice.

Impeccable and such polished service, from the utterly professional, warm, accommodating host to the servers to the bus staff. The room is old world beautiful and the clientele was dressed for a lovely evening out. The food is very good and simply prepared with healthy options. We so enjoyed the squid and caprese appetizers, the pasta with vegetables and the tender veal paillard. The hazelnut cake/torte was INCREDIBLE and dream-worthy. We cannot wait to return for another lovely dining experience

What a class act!
Food was exceptionally good! Especially noteworthy: their breads for the table, which they make in their own facility, were exceptional.
When they prepared the container for my leftovers, they attached an adhesive strip (with their name on it) to make sure the container stayed closed and sealed! The entire dining experience was full of exceptional touches like this.
When I went to use the bathroom (I’m on a walker), the employees went out of their way to escort me to the restroom
Lastly, when you’re sitting outside, you’re sitting in the open, underside of this landmark old building. What fun!
An exceptional food & service experience.
