    Very beautiful and romantic place. We went for dinner at night and the experience was wonderful. We sat inside for dinner. The next day we went back for lunch and sat outside because the weather was beautiful. A more casual feel than dinner, but still very upscale and nice.. The outside is so nice and we enjoyed a delicious lunch in the nice warm weather. There were options of sun and shade so you had a choice depending on your preference. Ambiance was very nice. Service was happy and friendly and ver accommodating. Highly recommend experiencing this place. We intend to go back soon.

    Amazing every single time. Second time I celebrate my birthday here for a nice dinner in 3 years. I bring everyone here and recommend it as the best restaurant in Brooklyn. Hands down. Been a loyal fan of the food here but the service and ambiance keep me coming back. Thank you Leuca!

    The restaurant was attractive and roomy, but it was surprisingly empty at only 7 pm. Despite the ample staff and only a few occupied tables—around 11—the service felt a bit awkward. Our entrees took longer than expected to arrive, and after they were served, our waitress seemed to forget about us, leading us to ask another server for wine and wait again for the check. While the food was decent, there are better Italian restaurants nearby.

    Leuca was a wonderful time, the food was delicious! I recommend the clam pasta or the black tonnarelli pasta. To start the olives and the ricotta with honey are superb! The service was excellent and the ambiance was busy but not too loud.

    Beautiful outdoor dining if weather permits, good food and a pleasant staff. The only drawback is that street noise can be distracting on a busy Saturday night in Williamsburg.

    One of the specialities is the beautiful clam pasta, but this time around it was not served  like it normally is this time around it was in a very red sauce and quite spicy. That is not how you do the famous Luca pasta. Please make sure in future, you don’t disappoint your guests.

    My first time dining at Leuca was absolutely wonderful. The space is beautiful. The watermelon salad was fresh and delicious. The homemade pasta with eggplant was off the charts. And the pistachio cake was heavenly. My server Allyson was beyond amazing, and made certain that my meal was perfect. I definitely look forward to returning!

    I recently visited Leuca for brunch, which was an exceptional experience from start to finish. The outdoor seating provided a charming ambiance, and the salads as starters were fresh and flavorful. The pasta mid-course was cooked to perfection, and the egg dishes for mains were delightful. The portion sizes were generous, and we even brought home the extra because the food was so good. The service was attentive and friendly. Overall, Leuca offers an unforgettable brunch with outstanding food and a welcoming atmosphere. I highly recommend it.

    We probably didn’t experience Leuca in its prime, as it was Memorial weekend and pretty quiet. We liked it though and the waitress was lovely. Love to go back when it was in full flow. Food was very good.

    Most awful food ever! Totally surprised as the venue is lovely! Wait staff very stiff and unwelcoming. Tuna Crudo not good at all. Presentation of everything except the Marguerita pizza was below par! Smoked beets were inedible. Smoked flavor overpowered the dish. Waste of an evening… never returning

    We liked this place. Romantic, nice energy. A little bigger than I like for most restaurants. The food was good. The portions of pasta varied a lot depending on which one you ordered. The ravioli is a few pieces but the eggplant pasta is a whole trough. The service was great. The pizza is really good, especially the dough. Would go back.
