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!!!
Great spot for a nice business meal!
Friendly service. Egg Benedict were tasty. The piazzetta was huge and delicious and well done Bloody Marys
Food was excellent and service was on point.
As always, brunch at Levante was great. The mac and cheese is out of this world, so are the donuts!
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.
Great meal and great service! Will plan to go back!
The food was excellent the manager was world-class . We were in town for business and we stumbled on this small unique restaurant that is a gem. I will travel back into the area just to eat there again. The pizza was incredible but the main dishes were my favorite I had a seabass dish that was one the best I have ever had. The portions were just right if you are looking for quality, not quantity this is the place
Delicious! Always so good.
Everything was perfect!!! We will be back, what a wonderfull restaurant
It’s always a good experience and the pizza is exceptionally good! We always get Levante pizza- the best!
I would recommend Levante if you were local to the LIC area versus traveling any distance to get there. The food quality was average and portion size rather small for a grown man. I had the rigatoni with the meat sauce. The noodles were cooked to perfection (which are typically over-cooked) and the pork rib meat was done perfectly. Otherwise the sauce was below average with a burnt taste to it. The service and staff overall were pleasant, professional and efficient. The atmosphere is great with the repurposed property which was casual yet upscale.
Hey, this place is out of business or under renovation but didn’t care to tell anyone. You owe me $16 for a god damn Uber ride!
AMAZING food as always! Rigatoni is spectacular and the Alessia pizza, there are no words.We always leave more than satisfied.
Excellent gluten free options. Had the duck ragu over gluten free pasta and a crisp Gavi wine. Enjoyed it so much I came back the next night with a friend and had it all over again!!
Ate at the bar and patio and enjoyed the ambience and the historical architecture.
Great neighborhood place and perfect for out of town hotel guests.
Returning from Milano this place was not what expected even when the menu and reviews were good
Upon arrival they offered to seat in the back patio The chairs and tables there are not for a restaurant We decided to wait for another table The hostess was really nice We ordered sparkling water upon seating We got tap water with gas They do not have any mineral water Gross We had to request the bread since they forgot It is a delicious salted focaccia We had first the Capricciosa Pizza that came with all the toppings cold and the mozzarella in whole pieces It was not melted Gross We had the Rigatoni with three meats that were delicious and the chitarra that were box spaghetti with a bland tomato sauce The pasta was overcooked We got a pasticcio The desserts where really good The Campari Spritz was ok small glasses for what you get in Italy and even in other Italian restaurants in NY Briefly Will not return They keep opening Italian restaurants that have nothing to do with the Italian Fair and I keep skipping them
Would absolutely come back again. Food was excellent — the pizzas and pastas are exquisite. The service was wonderful and our waiter was very kind and solicitous. Will definitely be back.
I work in the area and I had relatives in town from California. I rarely ever sit down in a restaurant to eat lunch by myself but I pass this place often and it looks so cute. We had a lovely meal on the back deck under the awning. One person in our party was vegan and she had a pasta dish. The children had pizza and my cousin and I had salads which were delicious. I highly recommend the place. I will definitely eat there again with coworkers.
The food is really good and portions are well sized, not too big and not too small. The staff are super friendly. We have been there several times and always enjoy the experience. The atmosphere, while a bit tight, does not feel bunched up. We were able to have an enjoyable conversation among the three of us.
This is the best pizza and service in LIC, Nick and his team are top class and make every meal worth it!
Sascia was our server and he was very good. Food was good, The hostess was a little fussy, as the place was empty as in not one person sitting at a table when we arrived and she made it seem like our stroller was going to be a massive inconvenience.
Everything is impeccable, not a single complaint or criticism.
This is our favorite go to restaurant and is the best pizza ever!!! 🍕
Best NYC pizza and amazing drinks and vibes. I only wish they had more tables :)
Wonderful food! Great location! Cool interior!
Very courteous staff, food was great & really nice decor.
The best pizza that I have ever had! The staff was super friendly!
Went with a couple girlfriends for a late lunch. Menu has a nice selection. Got some appetizers to split ( burrata, meatballs & arancini) everything was extremely fresh and flavorful. Bread is also delicious and olive oil very good. We split a Levante pizza and it was delicious. Only thing I would change is not cooking the prosciutto on top but other than that it was very good.
We were seated outside, so was quieter than in the main restaurant. Excellent pizzas!
Food was delicious and the service was great. Parking a bit difficult to find in this area, use mass transit. Definitely coming back soon.
Great outdoors space for brunch on a nice day. The food and drinks were great. We had a great time.
Food was amazing but service was just okay. Went for Italian Restaurant Week but they didn't even voluntarily offer the menu until I asked.
Excellent staff! Carlotta was a fabulous bartender! Food was awesome ! Vibe was excellent!
I love the ambiance and food of Levante. Cool and cute little spot for everyday or soecial occasions.
Ordered pizza. Mine was soggy and my dates was burned and dripping heavily with oil. The dessert was oversold , we were underwhelmed and sent it back.
Trovandomi con l’hotel ad Astoria
Nice local Italian restaurant in Long Island City. Service can be unpredictable but always friendly. Food is very good. Will defiantly go back in the future.
One of our favorite places to visit regularly in LIC!
When I am in New York I make a point to visit this wonderful restaurant. Is a favorite of my daughter and myself.
