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.

Great pizza. Love their dough. It was a cold winter day for outdoor seating but they have giant heaters in the backyard that are really toasty. Honestly, it was pretty nice having a hot pizza outside.

We love Levante and the food quality and service have not dropped at all during Covid. We sat out back of the restaurant (they also have outdoor dining on the street in front and some indoor dining). Sasha was our waiter and he was professional and courteous. He helped us choose our menu items and they were exactly what we were after. The food, oh my, is amazing! We don't live nearby, but when we're in town, we will definitely come back.

Horrible set up out back - not social distanced tables. I complained and was told it was because it was raining and trying to accommodate more tables under the tent. Good for revenue - not for public health! They did move us out front which was fine but we had to request being moved (despite having a reservation). The hostess ended up serving us and she was fantastic. Manager had a major attitude. Food was average. I wouldn't recommend.

We were truly impressed by the outdoor space! We arrived right before the sunset and left late being able to enjoy both scenes. The Levante pizza was delicious, the mix of cheeses and truffle complimented very well. We finished the night with pistachio gelato. The server was attentive and sweet!

This is the perfect neighborhood spot. Great food at a great value in great setting. Food is a cut above your typical Italian restaurant. Ingredients seem fresher and lighter. And the bar is terrific.

Friendly hostess, friendly waitstaff, absolutely excellent pizza. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars for service is because our empty plates hung around for a while and the restaurant was not busy by any means. Minor inconvenience, but an otherwise excellent meal. The pizza really wowed, honestly.

Service was amazing (everyone but one was wearing a mask at all times although other patrons weren’t wearing them before and after meals which was annoying). Food and drinks were really good although some felt maybe a tad too expensive for what it was. Outdoor patio was really nice and would definitely recommend a visit!

Levante is a local gem with excellent food and cocktails. My husband and I love to come here and are so glad to see they are open for outdoor seating. We sat at a table in the backyard patio and it was a really lovely ambiance and the food was delicious as always. Already looking forward to our next visit.

The place is apparently closed due to a fire that happens a while ago. When we got there it looked like an abandoned building. This was very disappointing as we planning to have dinner to celebrate a special occasion but instead wasted time and ended up going home. Very, very disappointing! I don’t understand why the place still appears as available to book reservations on open table app!? It should be taken down until they are back in business. This was a terrible experience.

This place is always excellent and reliable for their food and service. The owner is very attentive and so is the staff. It’s honesty the only place we dine at when we’re visiting LIC. Everything about this place is authentic Italian. Even the staff!!!

First time trying Levante, it was very solid. We ordered a bunch of items and I don't think there was anything that was bad. The pizzas were really good, we got one with burrata and prosciutto and since it was truffle season we got shaved truffles on top for $20 which was reasonable. We had 2 pastas and and a beef shank for the 4 of us and it was plenty after a few appetizers and pizza for dinner. The manager came over when we asked for some recommendations with ordering a bottle of wine and he picked a great bottle. We will definitely go back again. I save outstanding on the star chart for truly one of a kind meals, this was excellent but didn't meet that threshold.
