Incredible food, service, wine. Amazingness !!! Will be back x
Just the best Italian food in town. Especially for fish and see food.
One of the best in the hood! Adore this Italian diner
We had a fantastic evening out with friends and had some delicious food served with some great wine, recommended by the staff.
Gattopardo serves Southern Italian food with a modern slant. The food is beautifully presented. The chef took effort to make sure the food is multi dimensional in taste and appeal. My only grouse is, for the price that I am paying, the portions can be more generous. I had a starter (trout), shared a pasta (Argentinean prawn pasta), had a main (lamb with couscous, hummus & mint) and shared a dessert (tart with blood orange). It may suit the weight watching lady but for the average guy, you may mean a post-dinner small burger to fill up. Nonetheless, I rate my Gattopardo experience at 4.5.
Conscientious and efficient service for my group which included a senior citizen. Recommendations and subsequent dishes were excellent. And I would have to add that the 'lombatello' (onglet in French) was excellent; medium rare beef does not get much better done - especially in a seafood speciality restaurant. A very good first time experience at Gattopardo and only reason why I rate a 5 and not a 6 is that I do not give perfect scores!
The food and wines were very good and excellent value for money. The reservation process was a disaster. Despite phoning to confirm that our reservation for 8.30 for the Flavours of Sicily Win Dinner was okay and being assured that it was and that we did not need to arrive by 7pm, we subsequently received a phone call at 6.30pm telling us that we should be there by 7 - 7.30pm. This meant we really had to scramble to get ready and make the 40 minute drive to the restaurant. What really annoyed us was that the young lady in charge of these things refused to accept that she had misled us and made no apology whatsoever.
Starter bread with olive oil was excellent. The ravioli with red prawns, truffles and burrata sauce was delightful too. And they also have an extensive range of wine. Kath was also very attentive and had really great recommendations. Tiramisu was nothing much to rave about. But nevertheless, very pleasant evening spent at Gattopardo!
Sommelier was excellent, however, the rest of the service was average for the price. Staff told us about daily specials and what wasn't available after we had already spent 15 minutes looking at the menu. Was given the dessert menu again after we had already eaten dessert. Atmosphere average and dated. Food very good, wine very good. Maitre d needed to wear some more clothes - felt like we were entering 4 Floors and another server had an Adidas top on... Not as polished as we expected. However, we weren't rushed and did enjoy our evening, just not sure we would return with friends or recommend.
Gattopardo is a very nice Italian restaurant. Great food, and friendly service! They can do both informal and more gourmet oriented settings. We mainly come for the latter and are always enjoying the experience.
