Food overall was excellent. Quality ingredients and well prepared. My burrata was excellent, fresh, light with very sweet melon for tatse. The pasta with clams was probably the best I’ve had outside of Italy and definitely better than the highly rated Italian restaurants in New York. My guests had the Bottarga pasta which was also al dente and very tasty.

Staff were courteous and friendly and the
service was impeccable throughout; always there when you needed something but not overbearing. The restaurant was modern and just about cosy but not oppulent. All in all a wonderful experience and a place I shall return to.

Perfectly nice food and good service but at this price I expect the food to be a cut above. You are competing with the best at this price level and it was okay but nothing more.

Fantastic italian food. A seasonal menue with at least six specials in additional. Everyone in this restaurant speaks italian, and the servers are intimately familiary with the wine list.

I wish that they enforced a dress code. It’s hard to enjoy a special occasion when other patrons are in sneakers and shorts. For this level of service and for these prices I would have liked everyone to be nicely dressef

I love this restaurant for business or personal. Beautiful space and the inside and small outside dining areas are lovely. Great small bar with its own room is terrific surprise as is their large private dining space below. Food and service is excellent. Recommend all their salads, branzino, lasagnas and vegetable sides (escarole with raisins and olives my favorite). Beautiful wine list (mostly Italian). I think it’s the nicest Italian restaurant in that neighborhood.

I just love this restaurant, the food and the space alike. And the service is warm and professional, they are well staffed. Both the outdoor patio tables and inside is great. Lovely little bar and bar room. Highly recommend the branding, lasagne and all the upscale salads work well.

I was disappointed in this restaurant. It was very highly rated, but the food was, at best, just OK. It was extremely expensive, even by NY standards. I would not go back, nor would I recommend this restaurant.

Il Gattopardo is a neighborhood gem located in a historical townhouse on 54th st. Convenient to all major transportation and cultural venues. The ambiance is elegant and reserved, great for family dinners and mature evenings. Our dinner for 4 came out to $179 excluding tax and only two of had drinks. The dishes are presented beautifully with stellar, white glove service. Great for gluten-free diners, vegetarians, and meat lovers. Can't wait to go back

Food was disappointing, we had to shout to be heard by our guests, waiter kind of forgot us at the end of the meal and it took a while to get our check.

This place has changed and not for the better. I will not go back.

We have dined in this restaurant for many years, sadly the restaurant moved to a new, bigger location and everything about our experience here was dissapointing. Seated at a small table in a loud noisy corner we asked to move our party of 6 so that we could hear each other speak. We were seated downstairs in a quiet garden style room but the service was extremely slow and unnattentive. When our meals finally started to arrive it was of poor quality and taste. With so many fantastic dinig options in New York this is one to avoid.
