    Amazing dining experience at Casa Lever. My misticanza salad, skate fish and chocolate hazelnut dessert were all so delicious. The service was superb, and the prices actually quite reasonable for the quality, portion sizes and location. I look forward to returning soon.

    Outstanding dining experience. Pastas and fish were the highlights. If you have never had skate, you need to try theirs. Nothing disappointed and the service was exceptional.

    This was our second visit, several years apart. Everything was as good as the first time. The service was excellent from every single person who took care of the table. Every dish we had was outstanding. The gazpacho soup was a real treat as an appetizer. Pastas and veal as main courses were delightful in every way. We look forward to our next visit when we are in the City.

    Dining at Casa Lever means living in an interior design set--it is so beautiful, chic, cozy, with magnificent art, and cool. My daughter's pasta with black truffles was her favorite meal ever and we enjoyed a lovely bottle of Delamotte champagne.

    Ottima esperienza, piatti ben preparati e deliziosi, dagli antipasti al dolce. Servizio attento e curato! Prezzo...non economico, ma ci sta! Solo il caffè deve migliorare. Consigliato per chi vuole vera cucina italiana a New York City.

    Exceptional cuisine. Modern Italian dishes while adhering to the traditions. Pastas were expertly prepared and the crudo appetizer was also on point. But the highlight was the Skate prepared in the tomato and caper broth/reduction. Service was timely. An overall outstanding experience.

    My wife and I were given a gift card to Casa Lever so we were “forced” to try the restaurant. We found it to be a wonderful experience, as we were treated like royalty as soon as we arrived, and served delicious food that exceeded our expectations. The high prices may deter many people from indulging at this establishment due to the menu leaning towards the expensive side for most items, however if cost doesn’t faze you, I feel that the cost is worth it. We will be back.
