Top-notch Italian restaurant; high-quality food and nice presentation. Service is impeccable and they have excellent Italian wine.
If you have room for a dessert, don't miss La Pastiera, a traditional Napoleatan dessert executed to perfection.

First visit (we rarely dine in the 50s) was wonderful! Went for Sunday outdoor birthday brunch and selected for proximity to the MoMA. Food was lovely, service was exceptional, and am completely surprised that I was not familiar with Il Gattopardo long before now. Will be back!

The restaurant is gorgeous and nice spacing inside. Outdoors looked nice but it was too chilly for us. We had a great time. Pricey. Not my kind of menu (too fancy) but everyone had fun. We stayed a long time and no one hurried us out.

Il Gattopardo has simply the best social-distancing outdoor seating I've experienced in New York. In a space that most restaurants would crowd ten tables, Il Gattopardo spaces about 4 or five. It was fantastic. I felt safe and happy.
Bravo!

Due to Covid time, the only Easter tradition available to us was lunch at a fine restaurant. We were delighted we chose Il Gattopardo. The gracious greeting from the maitre d', the flexibility for us to dine inside or out, the attentive wait staff throughout the meal made for a most congenial experience. The menu is so well conceived that each of the four of us easily identified dishes we wanted. The two different ravioli were delicious, the octopus appetizer the best I have had in awhile, the zucchini dish scrumptious. We will definitely return.

Attentive service. Lovely dining space (although outside spaces appear even more quaint if the weather is nice). The pheasant pasta -- amazing & goat dish incredible. A great restaurant for special occasions and making memories. The only advice for patrons of what not to get -- forego the tomato & cucumber salad as it was not flavorful. Everything else was amazing, but this tasted like I cut up tomatoes and cucumbers and put them on a plate. Period. No olive oil or spices. Very bland. I'm actually wondering in the busy if someone forgot to top this off. Anyway, all else was fabulous, but $20 for a small tomato & cucumber salad with nothing on it was disappointing. We would recommend this restaurant and go here again despite the salad sadness!

The table immediately behind the hostess stand was hit with cold air every time the front door opened. Service was efficient but not special. Food was fine but also not special. I had the Branzino and my husband had the goat.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a wonderful, attentive staff. We always have a lovely time whenever we have the opportunity to go there. There is a significant wine list, wonderful appetizers and pastas, suitable for vegetarians. The zabaione with fruit is a wonderful Italian dessert.

Such a great spot. I walked by this restaurant years ago, and forgot about it. I recently stumbled upon it, while headed to a doctors appt. So I went for my fiancée's birthday.
Very professional service, upscale food. A bit pricey. Save it for a special occasion.
Would like to go back for lunch, in the summer and sit outside.
All the food was great.
Dessert was somewhat disappointing....
