The food quality and flavor was very good. The service was a bit slow and chicken was a bit under cooked and sent back with a very long return time.

Love their outdoor seating, very comfy, cozy, private.
Food was disappointing. The seafood salad was on special - it was good but nothing special. The frisée mixed salad was ok. Carbonara was overloaded with parmigiano and too salty. We weren't going to bring it up and just leave our plates mostly full behind but the waiter felt the hesitation and offered to get a different dish. We agreed to split a lobster ravioli - which again was too salty!

The waiter was attentive but there were several bus boys who constantly tried to take my friend's plate even though it still had food on it. But they never asked if we wanted more bread as the bread basket was sitting empty. It felt a bit unusual.Their bread is really good (was actually the best part of the meal, sadly).

Overall, I expected a more polished service and better culinary experience. Won't be going back.

The restaurant was very lively for a Tuesday, yet the staff managed the load quite well, and allowed us to pick our table and we're flexible with our orders. The dishes were very unique and well made. We enjoyed every bite!

Outdoor dining at Il Gattopardo is a delight! Roomy tables. Fabulous Italian menu. Superb wine list. Impeccable no-rush service. It all adds up to a spectacular, memorable evening. A few recommendations: Branzino (whole fish served filet with spinach), veal chop Milanese - like a small tennis racket served with arugula salad; home-made ravioli stuffed with veal, frankly, any pasta on the menu. Cold seafood salad as an appetizer can be shared. Dessert: Don't miss the in-house canoli. Divine.

It was too hot in the restaurant and our server was attentive ... until he wasn’t. I was overall disappointed because I had pretty high expectations going in. That said, the food was extremely good, if a tad pricey.

Honestly this is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. Came for my birthday and I couldn’t-have had a better time. The waiting staff was so attentive and polite, and everything from my starter, to my main dish was so perfectly balanced and full of fresh flavors, I had to order more bread to clean the delicious sauces off my plate! Came for a special event, but now I’m going to have to come back and try some, if not all of the amazing other dishes I seen on the menu. Great for any night of the week
