I have a high expectation on the food. the pasta is not done right and it is about 90 percent done. some part is raw. the dessert is fantastic . the beef is very soft but no flavor

One of the best meals I've had in a long time. Worth the visit for sure!

To be honest, the food wasn't worth the price. There were a few dishes we enjoyed but there a lot of better options in NYC.

I love the food here, it’s like I’m in Italy. Very tasty, with little details that add to overall taste. Also, It’s great that’s there’s no rush to serve you super fast and give you a check even though you haven’t even finished your desert, like in many manhattan restaurants. Beautiful interior and friendly staff, got a drink and a desert for a birthday celebration. Lovely atmosphere. Will be back many times.

Proximity to hotel brought me here the first visit. The wine selection, service, and extraordinarily good cuisine brought me back for my third time.
30+ years older than the average patron at 9:00 PM on a Friday night was invigorating but made hearing for these old ears difficult. Will plan an early flight arrival time at LGA to take their first dinner table next visit. Do not mind altering my travel arrangements to enjoy this restaurant more.
Fantastic staff; superb somm; imaginative and capable chef corps.

The noise level has gone up over time.. It was wonderfully quiet early on. Now not so much. I would prefer a higher lighting level. Too many of us have to use flashlights, and not seeing your plate is not a good thing. Better overhead lighting please.

Food and drinks were good, but not outstanding (brocolli pizza had no brocolli on it!). Ambiance felt a little sterile. Cocktails were good. I would probably go back for drinks but not food. Other places in the area are better for the same price.

Leuca is a phenomenal option for high-end Italian food in Williamsburg. The service is incredibly accommodating - they were extremely patient with a group of 9 of us and gave our friend a fabulous desert gift on-the-house for her birthday. Relative to other high-end Italian, the value for how good the food was was exceptional. Most of us got pastas and everyone was immensely satisfied; I personally got the penne with lamb bolognese and mint and was very impressed. Highly recommend!

We were very excited to come to Leuca. Our reservation was cancelled 2x by Open Table. I remade it and then ended up with 2! Had to call restaurant to straighten it out. Our cocktails came to the table piecemeal . Appetizers were slow to come out. The food was absolutely delicious. Service was spotty . After dinner drinks, coffee and dessert came at different times.. We shall try again!

We have been to Leuca quite a few times. This is the first time we decided to arrive early and go up to Westlight for drinks and lite bites. The staff was attentive, the drinks were perfect and the view is breathtaking. As must try.
We then went downstairs to Leuca for dinner. Excellent service, wonderful staff, and very good food. I wish the menu would have a larger selection, but we always find something to eat and its always delicious.

I loved the ambiance at Leuca. The food was great and the staff were attentive and helpful as far as menu choices/suggestions. Attended for a late Father’s Day dinner and we were treated like royalty as well as treated to a complimentary dessert option. Great pick. Will be back!

Lazy service and very expensive for what it is. Kids had pizza and pasta, and still it was a $350 dinner. Left hungry and uninspired. Food is not memorable or generous.

I had not very pleasant dinner experience there. Sommelier was very nice and aknowleble. Waitress was horrible. I wish I remembered her name. We ordered whole chicken for two. When we asked her for ketchup, she said ”we don't hv ketchup it's a Italian restaurant ” with an attitude. I'm in a Service industry myself. I don't think that's the way you talk to your customer.

Beautiful space. The menu was interesting and had a nice variety for brunch. Service was an issue — our server was very pushy and service felt rushed despite the restaurant being totally empty save for four tables. At this price point, one expects more refined and thoughtful service.

The food was fantastic as was the ambiance. Will definitely be back for special occasion meals.

There were some strange moments service-wise. Generally our server was not guiding us through the meal and instead had a “how could you not know this” demeanor.
