The food was good, not great. The service was poor. Plates on the table were not cleared! Servers did not know who ordered food so dishes were placed at wrong person consistantly. All mixed drinks were $14.00 each including bottle beer. There was no bar. Drinks were made in the kitchen and not with much alcohol. On line the menu looked reasonable. Party of 4 cost over $600.00. HELLO!!!! I could have gone anywhere in the city for this price and we only had 3 cocktails each wihout ordering any bottles of wine. The alcohol prices made this place a RIP OFF

My husband and I took our three girls and au pair to see a broadway show and wanted to find a nice restaurant to eat at afterward. We were looking for a highly rated restaurant that was family friendly and walking distance from theatre district. My eldest daughter and I found this restaurant on the internet and it turned out to be perfect! The food was amazing, from appetizers to dessert. There were great dishes for the children including the homemade spagetti and meatballs. The minestrone soup was the best my kids ever tasted. Then there was more interesting choices for my husband and I, like the veal and beef meatballs wrapped in cabbage. The service was a 10 as well. Our waiter was extremely familiar with the menu and he was pleasant and very helpful. Dinner at Il Gattopardo was a perfect ending to a wonderful day out with my family.

The Leopard is a a class Italian directly across the street from the MOMA's 54th street entrance. Inside the simple white washed dinninf room has a style that epitomizes an European class and elegance. The food and service is top notched. Overall a very very good choice.

I love this place FOOD: not just your regular Italian eatery, more upscale, yet you can dress casual, the menu is superb and my goal is to try everthing on it before the end of the year. WINE: All the wines are Italian, smooooooooth and excellent. DESSERT: OH LA LA, the best. They have this small chocolate souffle like dessert, with chocolate sauce hidden inside and a scoop of Haagen Das........MEOW SERVICE: You dont have to be KNOWN to go there, the staff of Manager (Valentino) welcome anyone with open arms and often stand outside to greet everyone in..... Just pure enjoyment, A++++ staff, smiles everywhere, you can tell the whole staff loves to work there, and the service WOW, not only do you get your waiter but everyone in Il Gattopardo wants to help, and be there for you, no matter what you need. DID I say that the food ROCKS! It used to be a once a month thing now I go once a WEEK!!!! I loved it! ASK for VALENTINO!!!!

Tucked away on 54th St. is a slice of Italy that must be tasted. The chef cooks up wonderful Italian dishes with unusual ingredients that make the dishes very special. From the moment you enter the restaurant, you are treated like family. A very special dining experience.
