Italian burrata from Puglia, prosciutto di Parma aged 24 months
Rigatoni al Ragù di Tre Carni**
baby back ribs, meatballs, sausage slow cooked in tomato sauce
Everything was pretty good! The only thing I was concerned about is the sea urchin tasted.... old.... not fresh at all... If they're going to offer this on the menu, each shipment shouldn't be kept longer than a few days.
If you're just coming here for pizza and drinks... Levante is an absolute 5/5.
Lovely restaurant! NIce ambiance and the outdoor dining is a vibe. The service was great, our server answered all our questions and made some good recommendations. The drinks were also really good! Great place for a date or a nice dinner/drinks with friends.
Fabulously delicious meal, perfect wine choice, excellent service.
I been to this restaurant before and had a amazing experience. So I was very happy to return. But this time around I must say and I don’t say this often. I felt very profiled when it came to my server. He took a very long time to take our order. Had an unenthusiastic demeanor towards me, my wife and my father in law. I was watching his behavior towards other tables and he was very cheerful, laughing and give them more Energy. I even overheard him give away free food to the next table. Now I don’t want free food I am just saying his demeanor wasn’t very welcoming. As we gotten our food he didn’t even ask if everything oh okay or check our table. They started to clean before we was even finish with our food. He came back to ask if we want dessert and we said no. But didn’t ask if we wanted more drinks. Which I was ready to get another bottle of wine. I work in the restaurant industry for over 15 years and i never experience some thing like this. Even tho his service was horrible I still tipped him very well knowing how the hourly rate for servers are. Also the food was amazing so I wasn’t going to hold the chefs that put in hard work accountable for my experience. As a fellow chef and restaurant veteran I was very appalled about the experience I had
The go-to neighborhood spot, never disappoints!
Best pizza experience this year
Great pizza and pasta and wine. Fish special though was not good at all, very dry overcooked and no flavor. Stick with the Italian dishes.
My first experience at Levante was very good. My date and I enjoyed the cuisine and the service was great. For those who love pizza, you cannot go wrong here. The place is a nice gem in Long Island City and good for a date.
Best pizza party anywhere
Amazing and quaint restaurant. The ambience is very relaxing and the food is amazing. Service was great, the drinks and food came out quickly. Great times were had by all.
Nice atmosphere and great Pizza service is great would definitely go back!
We love this restaurant but yesterday was not their day! The fish and chicken were very dry!
Really enjoyed the food. Very happy with drinks selection. Excellent service.
It got hot indoor for awhile but other than that it was ok.
They were very sweet and accommodating for our group of 15. Food was great!
Pizza and drinks where great, pasta was a bit underwhelming though.
One of the best hidden gems in LIC. Excellent food, excellent cocktails and top tier service. Amazing place.
I have always been very excited about Levante up until this recent experience. We were told there was no walk in so we booked a reservation online to which the hostess was surprised showed availability. (The entire restaurant with the exception of the bar was literally empty n there was plenty of reservations showing availability). We were given a time constraint of 1.5 hours which is fine so we sat outside. Upon sitting it seems everyone was in a rush to get us out n when we asked the hostess for drink recs she just seemed like she was not in a pleasant mood n was not very helpful. We ordered two pizza and it literally came in less then 2 mins we know because we hadn’t even gotten all our drinks yet. The pizza was 100% room temp n tho good it was clearly a pizza already made which was upsetting. They also had limited options for pastas n when we asked about this one pasta she stated it shouldn’t even be on the menu…. Anywhos the bill too came fast n like it just a awful experience from being rushed to leave. I am confused on why us alone (ages 21-30) received this treatment when there was two other tables who received excellent service from what we could hear. Very dissatisfied which is a shame since we have been so many times ….
Really solid spot. Their pizzas have gotten a lot better since they first opened and I love all their cocktails featuring amaro. Service is very prompt and speedy. Really solid spot that feels upscale but not so upscale that you have to get super dressed up.
Enjoyed meatballs & ravioli. Excellent dry martini.
Food was delicious and inventive. Service was great.
Great for date night or just amazing italian cuisine experience!
We missed our Uber because they couldn’t process our money quickly enough. We asked if they could process our card instead of the cash since it was giving them issues for some reason but they wouldn’t. So we waited and waited and missed our Uber while waiting for someone to figure out what had happened. A place like this, which is on the higher end, should operate seamlessly when it comes to something as simple as processing a bill.
It was doomed from the start. When I checked in the hostess said they only had outdoor dining available and it was close to 90 degrees out. I had a reservation and didn’t request outdoor dining. She had an attitude and wasn’t the least bit apologetic about it. She offered us to sit at the bar which wasn’t acceptable as we were dining with friends and that’s not conducive to talking. We sat outside in and they basically forgot about us. The waiter never came over to check on us throughout the meal. Things we asked for he didn’t bring and had to keep asking different ppl. I went in to talk to talk to host about situation she was very rude and could care less about the customer’s feelings. She said they were short staffed and I get that it wasn’t apologetic at all. Didn’t try to do the right thing. Someone came over after the bill was paid and then made a gesture. It’s not the way to treat customers especially when everyone is trying to stay afloat. I would not go back nor recommend to friends since they weren’t caring or sensitive to the patrons feelings. One and done!!
The food was excellent and the outdoor patio in the back was the perfect ambience.
The Levante pizza is a MUST!
Went for brunch and food was delish. Very relaxing atmosphere and service was great. Will definitely come again.
Food took forever!!
I like the location and the general ambiance - I am just not a 1 1/2 hr dinner guy.
We went as a party of 6. My friend ordered a salmon dish and specifically asked for them to not overcook it. They did, so she asked to return it and since we waited a significant amount of time between appetizers and dinner she didn’t want wait around till they brought back another dish. We shared our food with her.
They charged for the fish. And since it was a table of 6, they automatically added a gratuity of 20% which is fine but it’s not stated anywhere. We were in a rush at the end (one of the kids wasn’t feeling well) so I paid the bill without looking at the itemization. And I added a 20% tip (not realizing they had already added it to the bill). So they added another 20%, not to the original bill but to the original bill plus the 20% automatically added, so our bill was close to $500 for 4 appetizers, 4 meals and two small bottles of wine (my daughter ordered a pizza appetizer as her meal and one meal was sent back).
Additionally, my halibut was dry and husband’s filet mignon was just not good. Honestly, the two pizzas we ordered as appetizers were the only items that were good.
Not going back.
The best spot in LIC for pizza, pasta, anti pasta, and more! They’re always packed so a reservation is the best way to go. Service may be a bit slow and forgetful but it’s probably because they’re understaffed.
Fun! Good food and good drinks and great staff!!
Everything was good. Service was terrific. Food was very good. Sat outside in back very cozy. We will be back
Food was really great, but the service was pretty bad, waited too long for our water and drinks, then our food came out instantly & we were slightly rushed into finishing the first course so they could serve our second course. also waited a while to get out check. Nothing horribly wrong, just had to wait and could not make eye contact or raise a hand to signal we'd like something
restaurant is also deff at full internal capacity, they have opaque dividers but they really only make it harder for the wait staff to check on their tables/the patrons to flag their server down
our server was very polite and friendly
food was really incredible and would still go back
AMAZING Burrata - equally fantastic bread and accompanying meat.
The quattro formaggio pizza was unique. I loved it, but my boyfriend wasn't a fan of the blue cheese in it.
We enjoyed the wine and cocktails as well.
Indoor seating, with glass barriers between tables, all servers and staff wore masks for the duration of the evening.
Really great experience.
Definitely shouldn't have came during brunch hours, very limited menu. Food wasn't anything special.
We went there for brunch, but I've been here several times. The food and the wines are always great and the environment it's lovely. Recommend!
Delicious brick oven pizza, made w fresh ingredients. A great selection of wines and a friendly attentive staff. Outdoor seating is available. Social distancing is handled nicely. I will be sure to return.
This place was perfect for a quiet Saturday with friends. Service was impeccable despite all the CoViD restrictions. Loved the atmosphere and food. Presentation was beautiful and the flavors definitely matched! Will be back for sure!
