In addition to the excellent food and service long enjoyed by guests of Il Gattopardo -- the COVID-19 safe seating now accompanies their offerings. With a carpeted and landscaped sidewalk cafe, and several tables for two elevated on the landings of adjoining townhouses -- one can eat as safely as one dines superbly.

Meeting people at Il Gattopardo makes every business conversation so pleasant! The impeccable service, the amazing food and a refined wine list allow every guest to enjoy a great experience, even in the pandemic. To me this is the best restaurant where you can taste an high level, authentic Italian food and it’s definitely my favorite choice in Manhattan. Chef Vito recently introduced in the menu an outstanding ‘fregola’ with scallops and asparagus that made my day! Mr. Sorrentino, is always able to offer to his clientele a marvelous time in his restaurants and superbly leads a well prepared staff. I can’t wait to come back soon. Grazie Il Gattopardo!

The food and wine was incredible! Great service. We had a truly wonderful experience. We sat socially distanced inside and it was a little drafty. That would normally be a negative but with Covid, it was nice to know air was circulating well. I will definitely return.

If you can get past the sky-high prices, it's the best Italian food and experience you'll have in NYC.

We've eaten in Il Gattopardo before and loved every minute of it! This time, for brunch, we sat in their outdoor pavillion, which was lovely.

My husband and our friend both ordered omelets, which were delicious, and I can say that first hand, as I tasted my husband's. I asked French Toast, but they were out of it. So my second choice was the pancakes with fruit and I was brought a fritata. They took it right back and I finally got the pancakes, which were really nothing special. I expected them to be light and fluffy, since they supposedly were made with Ricotta cheese, but they tasted just ordinary (like I would make at home from a mix) and the fruit was sparse. This is the only reason for a 4 instead of a 5.

Luigi, the host, was charming, and kept making the rounds to see if everyone was happy. Next time, I'll order the omelette!

Gianfranco and his amazing team never cease to deliver flawlessly. After months away due to the COVID situation, I so much enjoyed returning to their festive sidewalk setting and having such a delectable combination of food, wine, impeccable service, and ambience. Well done!

This restaurant is my new midtown favorite.
I had been there prior to the pandemic and loved it.
Then started going again because of the outdoor dining option.
The staff is amazing, the food and beverage service outstanding.
Can’t wait to go back.

This was my first visit to Il Gattopardo with a friend of mine and to say the least we were both quite impressed since we walked in not expecting much. Both dishes that I ordered were excellent and the apple tart that I shared with my buddy was top notch. I might in fact revisit the place in the near future. The food was that amazing without breaking the bank.

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at Il Gattopardo. The food was fantastic, the service was attentive (but not intrusive), and atmosphere was comfortable. While the restaurant - like all fine dining establishments in New York - must be suffering financially due to the need to reduce the number of tables, the experience from the patron's standpoint really couldn't be better.

We had such a great afternoon at Il Gattopardo. The service was excellent. Our writer Oscar was a pleasure. The food was deliscious. We sat out side and the set up was lovely considering the situation we are in with covid. Im looking forward to going back to this beautiful restaurant. The inside is also beautiful and very clean . The restrooms were perfectly clean. This is important to me. 5 stars for this place.

Wonderful to return to Il Gattopardo. Like visiting Italy for a wonderful multi-course meal. The service is exquisite, with attention, recommendations and even pairing our wines. Specials are always a treat as is the regular menu. Excellent Halibut Ravioli this time round with Burrata and Octopus as appetizers. And oh the dessert was like being at a bakery and freshly made Cheesecake to end with a wonderful cafe. The seating outdoors and indoors is considerate and sensitive to our current Covid-19 concerns. Wonderful meal, comfortable and felt cared for food and safety. Thank you so much we missed you.

Perfect in every way. We shared a salad and had 2 entrees, sea-bass and home made pasta with broccoli rabe and sausage. The sea-bass was brilliantly prepared and filleted. Wine selection is very good. All was so delicious! The setting is lovely with many plants and well spaced tables. Service is very attentive and pleasant. We had a wonderful experience to top off our morning at Moma. My best dining experience since the start of Covid.
