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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice spot for tasty wood fired pizza, trendy interior with consistently good music, and good service. Four of us went on a Sunday night and had a really fun time!

Always love coming back here. The pizza is amazing, so is the ambiance. I kindly requested for “happy anniversary” to be written on our dessert, but they said dessert was on them and I really appreciated it. I thought it was very sweet.

Wine was a Ripasso, but not impressive (should be!)

We were visiting NY for 5 days and went out every night for dinner. Levante was by far our favorite restaurant! Everything is good there: Food, service and the wine. Highly satisfied. We also appreciated the low noise lvl, perfect for a date.
