    We had a great dinner at Leuca for my husband’s birthday. Everything was delicious. My husband still raving about pizzas and his Pork chop dinner. We all loved our dinners

    We liked this place. Romantic, nice energy. A little bigger than I like for most restaurants. The food was good. The portions of pasta varied a lot depending on which one you ordered. The ravioli is a few pieces but the eggplant pasta is a whole trough. The service was great. The pizza is really good, especially the dough. Would go back.

    Menu was very limited; the vine card was also limited; service was poor. I was expecting an upscale experience and authentic Italian cuisine. Too bad, I loved the place.

    The Grilled Octopus and the Sheep’s Milk Ricotta was 10/10 and the service too! My only critique would be the Lumache pasta was over cooked. Nonetheless, I would come back again.

    The chef has a heavy hand with the salt. Pizza crust as well as my pasta dish much too salty. I left nearly the entire pasta dish uneaten.

    Delicious food and great portion sizes! The sheeps milk ricotta with grilled bread was phenomenal. Lamb bolognese was really good (big portion of the pasta), and the OG pizza was amazing. Was too full for dessert but will definitely return and save room next time.

    Didn’t think the food was good. All the veggies were drenched in oil, couldn’t taste what was being eaten. Desert was bland. Completely overpriced on food and even soda is $5 a drink with no refills. We won’t be back, shame because we are staying at William Vale for another month.

    Mother’s Day. Took forever for someone to come to table. Sat down at 11:05 and didn’t get our drinks until 11:35. I ordered a flat white and got a coffee with milk. Took forever to find someone to help us even though it seemed like there was a ton of staff running around. When we were done eating Our plates were stacked at the end of table, but this wasn’t enough of a hint to the staff that we were very finished. Shall I go on? We ordered pancakes for dessert. They were dropped off at the table with the pile of other plates still there; and was given no utensils or share plates. It was too bad because we used to love this place, and were excited to bring our newly become mom friend. Oh well!

    Beautiful space, great vibe, and our sever was excellent. Apps and salad ( grilled octopus and fennel salad) were both excellent, as were our cocktails and the wine list. Only gripe was everyone in our party thought their pasta entrée was kinda meh……even understanding you always pay a bit more in NYC, just under $30 for pasta that lacks any kind of pizzaz was a bit disappointing. I love ding experiences where the food is wildly more interesting than what you could make yourself at home, and that was not the case for our entrees. Any return trip I would likely limit myself to cocktails and appetizers

    Arrivati in leggero anticipo non ci hanno permesso di bere un drink al banco, nell’attesa del tavolo, invitandoci ad andare in un altro locale. Cosa che abbiamo fatto. Siamo poi ritornati all’ora corretta. il cibo e’ stato discreto senza infamia senza lode. Il tavolo dove eravamo seduti era sotto a una scala da cui scendeva continuamente gente che sbatteva la porta. Alla nostra richiesta di chiamarci un taxi a fine pranzo ci hanno detto che non era nelle loro competenze e che se volevano potevamo chiedere al vicino albergo … bah!
