Seriously everything tastes so good. From cocktails to appetizers to entries and of course dessert, nothing disappointed me. Everything tastes phenomenal. I will definitely come again soon.

Disappointing experience overall. Food was very average, I would describe it as ‘Italian themed’ at best. The service however let the place down completely. There were plenty of staff around but there was no coordination, nor any attention to the customers, I had to ask to clear away our used plates; the wine appeared after the starters, etc. The sommelier did not have a clue about the wines she talked about so much so I was embarrassed on her behalf. Finally, irritatingly you find yourself in almost complete darkness in the downstairs section of the restaurant and, without exaggeration, can hardly see what is on the plate in front of you! Visual enjoyment is an important part of dining experience and was completely missing. With so many superb choices in the neighbourhood I would not recommend Leuca and will not visit again.

Beautiful place and food was good but the service sad to say was terrible. Our waitress was pretty nonexistent...the entire time we were there and it was not busy at all about 4 tables with people...we asked for water and glasses several times which took about a good half hour to get. Ordered a bottle of wine they poured a round and we assumed it was done so I asked when we were ordering dessert and turns out there was enough in the bottle for a second round. Would have been nice to have had more with our dinner. Bathrooms were a disaster.

We were celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary and Leuca made us feel very special. The food is great, the service is excellent, and it's a beautiful restaurant. A wonderful addition to the neighborhood, and a great option if you're staying at the William Vale. Thank you, Leuca!

I would 100% recommend Leuca. They were great! The service was a bit slow when it came to refilling the wine but other than that overall first time experience was amazing.

The food is very average and tasteless. The service very bad you basically have to do the follow up to ask about water, drinks and food.
After 45min When I asked with a bit of irony where my pizza I was told I am rude. Well what was rude is that no waiter came to our table for 45min to ask us if everything was ok !

We went to Leuca with my family to celebrate my sister's birthday. The food was delicious and the servings very reasonable. The overall atmosphere was lovely and the service was great. The staff was very accommodating and even brought out a yummy slice of cake with sparklers for my sister. Would highly recommend!

Pretty Italian restaurant in the brand new William Vale hotel. Food was enjoyable, but nothing particularly stands out. The staff were very friendly and our waiter was fantastic. Unfortunately, compared to the plethora of other italian restaurants in the city, the caliber of the food here wasn't that great. Our tuna crudo appetizer was fresh but way too acidic. We also had the black clams pasta and pappardelle - both well cooked but major flavour profiles were missing. However, for an afterwork drink or casual night out with friends, I would still recommend. Note: restaurant was very loud.

65th wedding anniversary

The food, the wine , the service was impeccable and eager to cater to dietary needs.

Champagne was brought to the table without ordering it for a festive celebration

Thank you Leuca

Excellent Experiece!
My wife and I had a less than stellar experience at Leuca on Thanksgiving 2018, perhaps because we did not order the Italian menu that night, and had not been back since. Our experience on 3/22/19, however, was outstanding. We were a party of four and the food, service, cocktails and wine were all excellent. The manager even came to our table to acknowledge our previous experience and to thank us for giving Leuca another chance. He sent over a few complimentary appetizers and a dessert that were all excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely return soon.

Everything was special including how inventive yet authentic the menu was. I loved the vibe and decor of the whole place. My daughter who has a limited diet found plenty of delicious food options and we loved how tasty everything was. I've never had better Tiramasu and loved the toasted hazelnuts at the bottom. I wished the wine pours could have been a bit more generous; that would be my only negative comment. The bathrooms were very cool and liked the individual rooms instead of stalls.

While the food was very good, we waited for nearly an hour to be seated despite having a reservation. The front desk did not seem overly concerned that we were waiting for so long. Poor management of the tables. For this reason I would not recommend the restaurant nor would I come back.
