Levante is a modern space in LIC serving a long menu of Neapolitan pizzas, pastas, salads, and more Italian food. But you come here for the pizza, which ranges from a simple spicy pepperoni (their best one) to a burrata, mozzarella, mushroom, and truffle pie. It’s good pizza (not great pizza), and it’s also a little pricey. But if you’re in the neighborhood and want to eat a pizza at the bar, this place would work well. At the moment, they don’t have a liquor license.
