    This is a NYC staple. Excellent service and cuisine. The wine prices are outrageous, not giving diners a moderate selection of wines for under $100 a bottle. Absurd.

    We were looked down by the manager upon entering the restaurant for check in as we were not dressed in smart casual. Waiter forgot to send our order and we were waiting easily for one hour for our appetizers. Restaurant staff tried to accommodate us the best they could, the food is amazing; true traditional Italian, extremely flavorful. Definitely one of a kind.

    We enjoyed approximately attentive service. The care of the kitchen is evident in everything they served - perfectly cooked and freshest green beans with an exquisitely cooked fish special. My partner enjoyed her sea bass. We’ve make it point to enjoy a meal here every trip to Manhattan and this visit after too long being away showed Il Gattopardo still at the level that made it our must visit favorite meal in nyc.

    First things first. The food here is always beyond excellent. White bean and mussel soup was perfectly spiced, fragrant and delicious. Octopus too. Main courses last night -- monk fish, cavatelli and pasta with veal/port ragu -- were also top shelf. Couple notable things: For some reason, the main dining room was extra loud last night so we sat outside, which means while you are "enclosed" you're still on a pretty busy cross town street in NYC so you get some noise and smells (diesel and smoke). Take your pick. Second, I've always loved the wine list here -- we drank a great 2015 Flaccianello -- but prices are higher than their competitors in my view.

    Great restaurant overall. Good, service, etc top notch. Couldn’t find a bottle of wine under $200. Lower priced wines out of stock. $45 Rye Manhattan is excessive as we’re $28 cocktails.

    The food was of first quality. The dressing of the food need additional, salt, pepper, lemon and oil. The price was high. A scarce glass of red wine cost 46 dollars. It is a successful restaurant with a crowd of guest, very noisy.

    Il GattopardoResponded on June 8, 2022We certainly glad you enjoyed our food and dishes. You selected a very nice glass of red wine, but our prices do vary. Midtown NYC restaurants can be noisy, that is true. It is the nature of dining in Midtown. Come back to see us, and hopefully it will be a little quieter for you.

    Really enjoyed our dinner during a three day trip to NYC. My wife and I shared the breaded mozzarella, pasta with seafood ragout that was outstanding. Our third course was venison loin. Great cocktails and vino. Old school service, very attentive!!

    Just a wonderful authentic place with unique Italian cuisine. The location cannot be beat as a quiet street feels somehow secluded tucked between major avenues. The food was incredible. We had grilled octopus, shellfish ragout, a baked zucchini cheese dish, dessert and a Sicilian red all of which were a standout. The staff was both friendly and interesting: Italian is the primary language spoken here even though many of the staff weren’t Italian. The inside was a little loud for our gaskets so we sat on the sidewalk and had the best night.

    Il GattopardoResponded on June 8, 2022Hi Steve - yes, we are tucked neatly away between two very busy avenues in the City, Fifth and Sixth. Midtown restaurants can be a bit on the noisy side, it is the nature of the beast so to speak. Glad we were able to deliver the service, food and wine to your liking, Come back and see us again soon, and we will try to top your best night!
