    It seems the consensus in the dining room is its too dark. We all had to read the menu with our phones flashlights. Love the romantic vibe but too dark.

    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

    We tried out Leuca for Valentine's Day Dinner. The food was excellent, but we had to wait about 30 minutes in between each course. We didn't mind though, the ambience, cocktails, and conversation kept us entertained. Would def come back!

    We chose this Brooklyn restaurant for Christmas Dinner. Risky! But, we could not have made a better choice! The night’s special was phenomenal, lamb lasagna! Yum! Celebrated “fish of the seven seas,” the Orata fish dish, was just as tasty! We will return!

    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!

    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.

    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.
