Il Gattopardo Italian Restaurant is located on a beautiful block on the main floor of the Rockefeller townhouse across the street from the museum of Modern Art. Walking into the restaurant I felt an old world ambience along with a sleek layout/warm lighting and noticed real foodies serious about authentic fine Italian cuisine. Il¬†Gattopardo¬†imports most of their ingredients from Italy and offers a large variety of fine Prosecco, wine, beer and liquor from¬†Italy’s family estates and independent Italian winemakers.

Dedicated Diners frequent¬†Il Gattopardo including diplomats, celebs and museum goer’s for the food created by acclaimed Southern Forte¬†Executive Chef Vito Gnazzo. Even though¬†food is the most important part of visiting this¬†restaurant the rate of service here nicely¬†completes my dining ¬†experience¬†where¬†I was both impressed and indulged¬†by my career waiter who¬†attended every need¬†starting with excellent dedication of service,¬†knowledge¬†of menu selection including preparation, Italian ingredients, liquor and¬†vineyards.

All my choices were satisfying but my favorites were the Homemade gnocchi moist and flavorful with Vesuvian Piennolo tomatoes from Campania for a sweet yet full bodied taste. The Herb crusted Colorado rack of lamb extremely tender full of juicy flavor served with complimenting potato croquettes and brown sauce. The Codfish was light, lemonly and smooth served with tomatoes and organic potatoes that rounded out the plate.

For a weekend¬†gastronome retreat in the City enjoy¬†Il Gattopardo’s¬†Brunch & Lunch¬†Neapolitan dishes¬†menu¬†11:30–3pm with Live Jazz/Bossa Nova music included on Saturday.¬†Weekday lunch¬†is also available¬†12-3pm.

Vito Gnazzo is the creative Southern¬†Italian¬†culinary artist for all 3 restaurants –¬†Il Gattopardo, The Leopard at des Artistes and Mozzarella & Vino. Go for brunch, lunch or dinner your taste buds won’t be disappointed.
