Will def be back
One of my favorite restaurants.

Best lasagna I have ever had!!
Thanks Mike Colameco for the recommendation...
My wife and I had our first Valentine's Day here 10 years ago, we ate here the night of our engagement 4 years ago, and just went back again this Valentine's Day. If I moved out of the state, or even the country, I'd make it a point to come back here as much as possible. The food is consistently incredible, every bite down to the last. And the service is absolutely perfect. Wonderful, kind staff. Great atmosphere. Don't miss this place!
A really excellent experience. Wonderful food, professionally served, in a delightful atmosphere. Highly recommended.
The food is always great, as is the service. Unfortunately, we had a table by the kitchen door, and although we did not complain, several other couples asked to move.
We have dined here, as well as Leopard at Des Artistes, many times. Both locations never disappoint. Everything was perfect for a wonderful Valentine’s dinner. Always excellent!
This is an excellent restaurant. A little below the radar screen but arguably one of the finest in NYC.
We had not dined at Il Gattopardo in quite some time. I forgot what an excellent restaurant it is. The menu is varied and reasonably priced for NYC. All appetizers and entrees we had were well prepared and amply portioned. The wait staff was also on its game. A very nice evening at a convenient midtown location.
Amazing wine list, food, service and ambiance. Have taken several personal and business colleagues who all enjoyed it as well.
Food was generally very good, except my fish entree was over cooked.
We had the burrata and tomato special and it was amazing. It was served with roasted peppers, very tasty. I had the branzino special, extremely moist, sweet and deboned, perfect. My husband had the veal scallopini which was also very well done. The waiter recommended an amazing Sicilian wine that matched perfectly. Great restaurant, can’t wait to go back.
This was a remarkable experience... from the food to the service to the ambiance. We attended the Jazz Brunch, the entertainment was at an appropriate noise level and the musicians were talented. We shared the burrata appetizer with roasted peppers and tomatoes, which was delicious. My partner and I were both delighted with our main course choices, the eggs Benedict and the spaghetti alla carbonara, respectively and we shared the zabaglione with fresh berries for dessert. Can't wait to return!
Lunchtime is busy and really loud. Service quite unprofessional. Food divine
We so enjoyed the bar area and cocktails. It was a great way to start what would be a wonderful dining experience!
Very nice atmosphere
Great place for a date. Understated and classy, friendly attentive service. I'll be back.
Everything about this restaurant was wonderful! Food, atmosphere, friendly and competent staff.
The meatball appetizer was fantastic as was the ravioli. Entree choices a little limited and small portions but the taste was great. Be prepared to spend at least $75 on a bottle of wine. Service was superb. Overall, pricey but if that is not an issue, highly recommended.
Quite good and interesting Italian cooking with classy service. Although a pleasant low level of noise, it is a bit pricey, so most appropriate for a business lunch.
impeccable service, quiet yet cozy with outstanding, homemade pasta. Very authentic.
Very good food great service terrible interior design. The dining room is in a townhouse but looks like it was decorated by someone whose day job is decorating office space. Remodeling the the room would go a long way toward improving the overall experience
Great service and food, We had special requests for our daughter and they did it without a problem
The food, service, etc. was fabulous!!! Can't wait to come back.
Exquisita la comida.
First class place. The service was excellent and food was top shelf relish.
Wonderful anniversary dinner! Attentive yet not intrusive service! Excellent meal!
Comida muy exquisita
Maybe it was an off-night for the Chef, but the food was sub-par. I ordered the veal and it was tough and lacked flavor. My friend ordered a combination seafood dish and it was overcooked. This was a birthday celebration Service was OK, nothing extraordinary. I don't mind paying for a good meal --- this one stung a bit.
Amazing food. Always a pleasure. Wish we could come more frequently. Really high quality fish. Happy to be back!
Very good food, despite the strictures of the traditional Italian menu. Calm and elegant ambiance. Warm and welcoming service from a knowledgeable and sensitive waiter. Will come again!
Always with elegance. From selection of wines to cheese to waiter's knowledge and services.
Visiting New York for Christmas and decided to have Christmas dinner here. A great selection! The food and service were excellent.
Very unhappy. Food poor. Service ok.
