Had asked for all our plates to be brought out one at a time, but they brought it all the same time. Waitress barely came over, would have liked a glass of wine with dinner but she didn’t come back until we were basically done with the food.

Been eating octopus now for about 5 years every time is in a different restaurant menu. The octopus from Leuca was the hardest and chewed. Good size but 3 minutes chewing. Chef forgot the trick when pre cooked. Anyway the rest of food was good. Not amazing.

Love Leuca! Delicious food - the pizza special was incredible! Service was super attentive and considerate, didn’t mind that we lingered after settling up. Will definitely go back!

The food and drinks were great. We couldn’t have asked for a better waiter but the hostess who I was told was also the manager was rude and not accommodating to our request. We asked to sit at a different table because we weren’t happy with the table we were given and we’re told we couldn’t move because all the tables were booked. The reservation was at 8:30pm and no one else came in the rest of the night and sat at any of the open tables that we requested to move to. I have never experienced such disregard to a customers needs. The waiter we had was great and so was the rest of the service but I won’t be returning for this reason.

Service was incredibly slow. Very few diners at the time we were there. Our server paid very little attention to us and it took an extremely long time for the food to come. Food was just okay. Nothing positive or memorable about the experience.

Food choice was very interesting and diverse enough. Beautifully prepared with lovely nuances in the taste texture and sauces.

Certainly a destination place to be considered

Always love this place, my first time sitting in the bar area. The acoustics were terrible, we couldn't hear one another without leaning into one another. Next time, I'll be sure to request the dining room in the back. The food was excellent as usual.

Great atmosphere for overpriced average tasting food to say the least. Bread that got such great reviews was subpar and when we asked for more because the dip was still left they charged us 3.00 for another small piece of bread. Pizzas were bland and mafalda pasta had no taste whatsoever and definitely would not return ...

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.

Had a great outdoor dining experience with my 2yrs old kid.
Great foods, friendly services and reasonable prices.
Highly recommend to try Grilled bread with sheep’s milk ricotta from the Appetizers.
