Dear Friends

After 12 years at Il Gattopardo’s original location, is with joy that we welcome you to The Rockefeller Townhouses, our new home at 13-15 West 54th Street. In the new house, Il Gattopardo gains an intimate bar space and a marvelous private event room with capacity up to 120 seats. The main dining room has been designed to translate our vision of comfort, modernity, but above all, simplicity, and to keep alive Il Gattopardo’s understated elegance.

IL GATTOPARDO family is committed to producing top quality Southern Italian gastronomy, to the use of authentic ingredients, and to keeping the tradition of Italian culture and hospitality vibrant and passionate.

Be well, keep in touch, and buon appetito!

The food and service were extraordinary. The ribeye steak done Pittsburg rare was the best steak I have ever eaten, They served a delicious amuse- bouche of arancini and pizzette. We ordered negronis which were generous and perfect. The service is excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I have been going to IlanaGattopardo for years. Food, ambiance, service are excellent. I would like to see more wines available by the glass at reasonable prices.,,

Somos de Buenos Aires, estamos de vacaciones en Nueva York y festejamos nuestro aniversario número 42 en este restaurante y realmente no hay palabras para halagarlo: simplemente MAGISTRAL en todo sentido.

A great Italian restaurant. On time seating, great food, excellent service - cannot do better in NYC. Try the wine from the big bottle - but be prepared for the price it commands.

Just a lovely place; a little dated, to be sure, but incredibly elegant. All food was well prepared, and the staff graciously split the plates.

Best Italian restaurant in Manhattan in my opinion.

Much too loud. Very annoying in such a good restaurant. You need a lot of sound-proofing because of your low ceiling. A real problem.

Meh. Wanted to like it a lot more than I did. Service was well-intentioned but execution was not there. Twenty minute long wait after our reservation start time, friendly host but he never brought us menus, wound up eating at the bar and the bartender disappeared on us. Would not recommend. Expensive and unremarkable food.

Il Gattopardo is an old-fashioned New York gem that always feel like a treat. The staff is impeccable, kind, attentive, and pleasurable.
The cuisine is incredible and not pretentious.

Very attentive staff and excellent if you are going for an Italian dinner. We went for brunch - The food was barely average and the pricing for orange juice and coffee was too high. Orange juice was served with tons of ice cubes instead of straight up. We were very disappointed.

Dining here is a delight. We do so whenever we have the opportunity to see a matinee in the area. Considering we live well outside of NY state, this is a true complement.
