Authentic, very high end Italian- over the top price wise. Menu solid but not unusual, standard fare, wine list quite over-priced for the usual Italian Brunellos and Tuscans-did I say very inflated! The sommeliere's ego is clearly even bigger than the executive chef's!
Every person working there knew what they were doing, did it well, and with a smile. The food was excellent as well. Good wine list and good help choosing a wine. The only downside was the noise level... hard and flat floors and ceilinsg could use some attention from a sound consultant.
Always Excellent! Love food, atmosphere and service!
My favorite NY Italian restaurant consistently excellent and innovative.
Delicious food, extensive wine list, excellent service. Nivardo, our server, was attentive, helpful and very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Ravioli were tender and delicious. Veal piccata was cooked perfectly. Service was very attentive.
Very good, well made Italian cuisine. Pleasant atmosphere and attentive service. It won't blow your mind but you'll leave quite satisfied with the whole experience.
Perfect! Meal, service and Place! We sure came back soon!
Service was fantastic as was the food! Great Italian wine list.
Last night was very disappointing and will probably not go back. For the money we paid for 3 people, which our bill came to over $500.00, service was terrible, it was like we were not there, they were waiting on other tables. The noise level was so loud we had a hard time talking to each other. The food was nothing to get excited about, not worth what we paid. I was expecting a much better experience with the service, food and ambiance.
Menu was limited. However the two items we chose were of very high quality and perfectly prepared.
Great restaurant but It would be nice if they could improve the chairs and the decor. Somewhat bland and looks passé.
great food, great wine, great service! Love Il Gatto Pardo!
Consistently excellent food, expensive but worth every penny. Attentive, professional staff. Welcoming maitre’d pleasantly in charge of the room insuring every guest has the best dining experience possible.
Absolutely off the charts! From the moment you walk don the stairs to the moment you leave. The most professional staff in the city. Food, service and overall the best. This is our favorite go to place in NYC. It will always be our favorite. "Grandi persone fanno grandi alimenti." Grazie, Ciao
Very good authentic Italian dishes, some presentations a little off the beaten path but still familiar, good service, good wines. A bit pricy, but that's New York.
Always a great experience. The service is outstanding and the menu is a delight
Highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed! Food was amazing.
Fantastic small gem: cozy, charming, impeccable service and food to die for. Great experience.
Great place, location and service. The food was exceptional and we feel right at home.
We’ll be back!
Food and service was pretty good! It is a very nice and quiet spot. Specially for romantic diners or anniversary celebration like us.
goood food in a quiet room. very nice staff. wines are a bit too pricy
Business dinner. It was perfect. We will be back. When booking I asked for a quiet and isolated table. We had it. The food was great. Service is discreet and efficient.
Excellent staff and chef. Delicious meals in an attentive atmosphere. We will return!
Food was very good. Service was great. Waiter was friendly and had conversations with us. Made us feel at home. I am on a strict eating regiment and they prepared my dinner as requested.
The event was a birthday the restaurant set !
Ill Gattopardo —
My 25 year background as a chef leads me to this review - which I have never done before.
Wine service was poor by the glass - my first mistake @ 20 dollars a glass.
Half opened bottle brought to the table pouring 20 bucks / sloppy. Keep it at the bar.
Appitzer super expensive 4 bites / poor presentation!
Entree was the better moment that I’ll Gattopardo had - rack of lamb very good - ordered med rare - came to table very close to raw - chewy because it was under cooked.
Veal dish of my guest was very good - old school clean tasty.
Over all defiantly not worth the $260 price tag for 2 people — and I don’t drink !! Lol
Food is always top-notch. Service excellent. Welcoming atmosphere. Intimate setting. Bravo!
Accoustics are such that the noise level makes it difficult to converse
My fiancee and I were in town for the week and looking for some great Italian food. This restaurant was highly rated and a relatively short walk from our hotel on Central Park. The food was outstanding. The service was perfect; not hovering but there when we need the wait staff. Quiet dining, easy conversation partly because we ate early to get to a play and beat the rush. It was a great experience and we will be back. Brent & Deanna
We stumbled on this restaurant last year and it's just wonderful, a neighborhood gem, unfussy, comfortable and lovely. Great food, that's always fresh and delicious, with personable, yet stellar professional service, and the wonderful wines I've tried here have become my favorites. I could eat here every day.
We went to Il Gattopardo for a Sat brunch for the jazz. Every single part of our experience was excellent!! I cant wait to return at our next trip to the city. The tomato soup with basil was amazing. We had the frittata and omelet, both which was tasty. The food was served fresh and hot and the staff is very attentive. The music was lovely. Highly recommend!
very special Midtown location withoutstanding food and service
Very noise, waiters not friendly, bad cost-benefit ratio.
Lovely food and service! We went in for the dry-aged Rib-Eye we saw on the menu as we were strolling. Alas, we returned on a holiday Monday and they were out of it following the busy weekend. The dishes we selected were delicious and would have been a shame to miss. Branzino with escarole and olives was beautifully flavored moist and awesome as was the Clam Linguine. We'll be back.
We had a delicious antipasto sampler that the chef selected and a light tasty pasta course before the entrées which were equally well prepared. The wine selection was perfect.
Great food, great service
Beautiful food, classic NYC neighborhood restaurant - elegant but easy..
Everything is great at Gattapardo...almost like being in Milan. They are, however, not shy about their prices and raising them seemingly without reason. So be forewarned, but by all means go !
One of my favorite New York restaurants. Great food, service and ambiance.
It's been ages since we've visited, but it was worth the wait for our anniversary. Each course was a treat for our tastebuds, and the service was beyond stellar.
