I had reserved a table for 2.15pm for a party of 4 but somehow the total points we received for this dining was not the expected 1000 - we only received 100. Could this please be corrected to reflect in my Acct? The service and food were outstanding!! The children loved every meal and found it to be delicious! Thank you very much.

The service was chaotic. We sat for a full 30 minutes before being offered cocktails . We had to request to be served white wine all through the entire evening, as the bottle was somewhere in a cooler out of sight and servers never bothered to check our (empty) glasses. We also had to ask more than once for other items. The space is rather austere, withe low ceilings and very close tables, nothing like the festive, ample room of the Leopard at Des Artistes, its sister restaurant. The food a Leopard is also better, as is the excellent service. (It might help we are somewhat “regulars” there, as at Il Gattopardo they don’t know us at all.) A very disappointing evening with out-of-town friends.

We heard wonderful things about this restaurant.
It is above the standard between many Italian Restaurants located in NYC; however, comparing it with authentic Italian restaurants from Italy there is still a gap to be filled out.

We enjoyed our lunch. The food was really good. The service was great - couldn't find any fault at all. The person attending to us was very attentive to our needs and questions. It was quiet inside as we've had a late lunch. Also, we decided to eat indoor rather than outside because it was a very hot afternoon. We will be back.

Outstanding food and service. We sat outdoors; it was beautifully done up, completely unlike so many of the cheap, tatty-looking structures all over the city. The table setting was impeccable. The staff were extremely attentive and the food was superb.

I arrived first, and the maitre d was quite unpleasant when I entered the restaurant. It seemed that I was an inconvenience. The person I was dining with, who arrived after I did, also remarked how coldly he was greeted. That’s when I knew I wasn’t being overly sensitive. Then the circus began. We were initially seated toward the back of the restaurant by a busy station, where the busboys and servers kept passing by; and when we asked for a better table, we were seated at the very back of the restaurant kn a corner, even though there were numerous tables available toward the front of the restaurant. We were going to leave but decided to stay. The food was not special and the overall experiences was poor at best. I will tell people not to ever dine at this restaurant and I won’t ever go back.

Once the restaurant reopened after Covid, my husband and I, sometimes with our daughter and her fiancé, dined several times. The excellent service resonated. That was not the case Saturday. The waiter was fine. The maitre d’ and his assistant were cold and perfunctory. Rather a turn off. The food was as good as ever.

THE WORST ITALIAN FOOD I HAVE EVER EATEN.
While the outside dining environment is beautiful and the service good – the food was possibly the VERY WORST l I have EVER eaten in the city – and I have been eating out in New York for over 20 years. It was a special occasion, so I was ok it being pricey – but I was expecting to be wowed, or at least enjoy it – but it was so incredibly bad. Stale, stodgy, sloppy – just yuk – absolutely no finesse with flavors, ingredients or presentation. Consequently we didn't finish either of the courses – I really wished we had the foresight to cancel the main after eating the appetizer and spared ourselves. And it was outrageously SUPER expensive. Honestly, $1 pizza would have been better. I feel embarrassed for New York if tourists go there. On the upside, they did not charge us for one of the main courses – we couldn't lie when the waiter asked us how we were enjoying it. I just wish we never went there.
