“Consistent excellence.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

I have been regularly patronizing this restaurant since its inception, about 3 years ago, and I must say that both food and service have always been consistently top notch. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable about the food, which is very authentic Sicilian, with a modern touch.
The specials - made with fresh fish from the Mediterranean, are a must try. If you want to eat great fish/seafood in an elegant and comfortable ambiance, this is the place to go!

“intresting Italian food....lots of good seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

I tried the Salt Baked Fish and my son enjoyed their pizza. Both were great. They have a wide selection of seafood which seems very unique for an Italian cuisine. The Service was friendly and attentive at all times.
The complementary cookies at the end of the meal were delicious.

Thank you & we will be back.

“Unfamily friendly”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Went here today with our 16 month old daughter. We didn't want the $78 brunch so opted for the Al A Carte menu. We were expected to eat this on low tables in the bar area or place our daughter in a highchair at the bar where she'd only come up half way. When we asked if we could possibly have a table in the restaurant due to the issues with the highchair we were told only if we had the $78 brunch. When we said we would go elsewhere due to how unaccomdating they were the manager tried to give us a business card - like we'll be back!

lin0saur0, Owner at Gattopardo Ristorante Di Mare, responded to this review, May 19, 2013
I m Chef Lino, owner of Gattopardo!
after investigation on this matter i have to be have very frank with you!
1) you arrived and ask for having food at 11am and we normally on Sunday open at 1130
2) regarding the accomodation on the bar unfortunately we couldn’t give you the a table at the main dining room exactly for the reason my restaurant manager gave you, our Sunday brunch is already very affordable and with all the dishes precisely prepared for the Brunch, but if we allow people to have a la carte every one will take the freedom to order a la carte and we will have lot of wastage.( that s why we still give our customer to be accommodate at the bar to enjoy our normal menu). i m telling this because we have had few cases like this in the past which created unpleasant situations!
so please do not take your time to put this kind of negative reviews online if you are not aware of the reasons and you don t know the local policies ,or you are having a bad time at that moment!
Among our loyal patrons we are very well-known to be very very flexible and accommodating! unfortunately we are not that perfect yet to make happy 100% of our guest although is always and every day our higher aim and goal. I m very sorry about your experience at Gattopardo but i believe your review is totally inappropriate!! Cheers

“Fantastic Sicilian Food in Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Chef Lino S never disappoints! We have a fantastic night at Gattopardo enjoying the gob-smacking food served up by Chef Lino. The staff were friendly and attentive to our needs, even answering the numerous questions we had for them. They also assisted us in pairing up various Sicilian wines with the dishes that we had ordered. To balance out the rich food that we had stuffed our tummys with, we ended the night with the Frutti e Sorbetti which was very refreshing. For those in our party who opted for tea/coffee, they enjoyed the accompaniment of lovely cookies to end the meal. Will definitely head back to Gattopardo again.

“Sumptuous food, great atmosphere, and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

My boyfriend and I attended a wedding at Hotel Fort Canning, and that's how we got to know about Gattopardo. The restaurant looked cosy and romantic, with the lovely terrace outside for those who wish to enjoy the warm sunshine. As we were looking at the menu, the friendly staff spoke to us and started introducing the Chef specialties to us. Intrigued by the interesting menu, and the friendliness of the staff, we decided to come back the next weekend to dine at Gattopardo!

It was definitely a great decision. As it was a bright sunny day, we sat outside by the terrace and sipped on Sicilian white wine, whilst enjoying the lovely spread of food that we ordered as recommended by the staff. Being dessert lovers, I have to highlight the Cannoli Siciliani - it was fantastic! We also tried the chocolate threesome, and the Pistachio Tart.

We had a lovely meal at Gattopardo, and we will definitely go back for more Sicilian delights.
