Amazing experience and it made my ladies birthday even more special. The ambiance, food, and drinks were just right. The service really made it amazing as well. Love everything about the restaurant. I definitely will be back with a whole crew of people.

This was a wonderful dining experience! From the food to the service to the ambiance, we have zero complaints and loved it all!

The Sheep’s Milk Ricotta, Hot Honey & Garlic, Grilled Bread appetizer was our favorite item but the Rigatoni, Lamb Bolognese, Ricotta, Mint was trailing right behind it. Both were decadent.

Our server was very hands-on and provided a great wine recommendation to pair with our meal. We look forward to dining at Leuca again!

Extremely slow service. Took 30 minutes and flagging down the manager to get someone to take our order.

Pizza was good, everything else wasn’t. The steak had been sitting out too long before being brought over so it was not great.

Wouldn’t go back.

We have been to Leuca several times in the past and it was always great on all fronts. This time I was taking my husband out for his birthday dinner and the food and wine again proved to be amazing. Our server was fabulous. However the whole night was started off by an extremely rude host, who never greeted us, and in fact acted annoyed at having to do her job. She tried to stick us at a table by the entry even though most of the restaurant was empty and remained empty for our entire dinner; even through she reluctantly gave us another table it was by far not the best table available and I had specified this was a birthday when making the reservation. In this time if we are going to venture out of our house and spend a considerable amount on dinner I want the whole experience to be wonderful, start to finish, at every point of contact. Not sure we will go back, at least for a while.

The atmosphere and menu were equally amazing! We ordered a couple pizzas and a seafood pasta, each dish was delicious. The restaurant was beautifully designed and comfortable! I would absolutely go back :)

The vibe at Leuca was very nice. Its great for a date! The only thing that wasnt ideal was the wait time for things. It seemed as if the waiter was super busy and it took a while for our drinks and ordering. Once that was done, the food came pretty fast! I enjoyed the food and I would definitely go again but it wasnt jaw droppingly amazing. the drink menu was pretty cool though. lots of options

Great space but skip the prix fixe dinner on Valentine's (and other holidays). Very disappointing food quality (served cold, pre-prepped, even seemed microwaved)

We had to wait over an hour to be seated for our reservation, simply unacceptable. Management made no effort to make this right. It's a shame because I otherwise love Andrew Carmellini restaurants, but now have to reconsider going in the future.

We had an 845 reservation and they sat us at 10 PM after giving away our table because someone just sat at it. No apology was ever given. They did not offer a free drink or appetizer or even seem to care that we waited over an hour for a table with a reservation. For an upscale restaurant it was very disappointing and the staff, especially the employees who greet and sit the patrons were rude and unapologetic and unhelpful. Had even a free drink or appetizer or anything been offered it would have made it less offensive.

We have been going to Leuca since it opened on a regular basis. This used to be the place to go - the food was never super inventive, but it was perfectly seasoned and cooked, fresh and the service would be on point. This meal had none of that. We had to ask the server to slow the pace of service three times. The food was then mediocre at best. The ricotta was too sweet, the pizza had virtually no cheese and the pasta was mushy and inelegantly flavored. As a final nod, the waitress shorted my husband on change when he paid in cash.

Leuca is a fine Italian restaurant in the William Vale hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The food is excellent as is the service. It is fine dining within the hotel, but dress is casual. Among the menu items you really should try are the Sheep's Milk Ricotta with garlic and honey (mmm...), any of the pizzas, and the pork chop if it is on the menu. It really is worth a visit.

The food was great but the service was horrible. We received our food but did not receive plates to eat off of and had to ask twice to get them. The server came and asked if we would like more water, we said yes and then he never came back with more water for us. Additionally we asked for olive oil and never received it. It was as if we were not even there. Unfortunate because the food was really great
