Description: .Finally, in April 2010, a collaboration with the esteemed Garibaldi Group sees Chef Lino unveil Gattopardo amidst the lush greenery of Hotel Fort Canning. Still deeply grateful of the opportunity to helm his own restaurant, Chef Lino did not disappoint as he introduces an innovative menu of authentic South Italian and Mediterranean cuisines- winning over customers and critics, alike.

“Good ambience, great wine list and excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised by Gattopardo. It is the Italian restaurant within Fort Canning Hotel, but it combines a great internal ambience with wonderful outdoor seating

We had a griil for 20 people - beautiful Tuna, italian sausage, seabass, calamari, italian breads and a host of other dishes.

Service was good. The food presentation was good and the wine list one of the most extensive Italian wine lists in Singapore.

THis was a place that was good for young people on a budget (authentic pizzas), romantic evenings for couples or groups such as ours.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I have now eaten here twice, once with friends, who have lived here for the last five years and is also one of their favourite places to eat,and once on my own. Both times the service and food were excellent. The staff were always attentive, no matter how busy they were

The prices are very comparable to some places in Clarke Quarys, which is only a 10 minute walk away, it is worth a visit as you won't be disappointed

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Had both dinner and a lunch here. Wasn't expecting an Italian restaurant when we first arrived but were quite impressed by the personable service and the authentic food. Chef introduced himself and, guess what, he's Italian! Looked to be a nice wine selection as well. One table of businessmen at lunch was simply ordering bottles of wine and tasting them.

“The Best of Italy in Singapore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

We visited Gattopardo for the second time in 2 years for dinner for 2. Again, spectacular.
Pre dinner drinks in the bar were wonderful. Great cocktails in a stylish yet unpretentious environment. We were later taken to our table. Breads salt and olive oil - simple and delicious.
The Calamari entree - perfect. For mains we had the Gattopardo Pizza and the Braised Lamb shoulder with Rosemary Potato.
Staff - Roberto checked on our drinks and our meals and made the experience personal. The chef introduced himself and genuinely asked if everything to our liking. It was.

Dessert - The best Tiramisu and Ill Bianciomangiare imaginable.

Perfect.

“Sunday Brunch - great first time, not the second”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012 via mobile

We tried Gattapardo restaurant in Fort Canning Hotel for Sunday brunch back in Feb. it was excellent then - free flow bubbly and wine, endless brilliant starters, a choice of main course, and yummy cheese and desserts. Professional service as well.

Back again in April, not the same. It wasn't a brunch, it was an a la carte menu. The food was good, but the service and the timings were amateur. And they ignored our empty glasses, which is the ultimate crime.

Would I go again? Not sure, I would need someone else to tell me they are back to their better performance.
