Il Gattopardo Restaurant Review

: Il Gattopardo's reliable regional dishes from southern Italy entice tourists, Midtown executives and MoMA staffers (owner Gianfranco Sorrentino is also the proprietor of the museum's Sette MoMA) to frequent this locale. Choose from the veal-and-ricotta ravioli with thyme sauce or the polipetti in umido con bruschetta (octopus stewed in tomato over garlic toast) among other authentic Italian recipes. Make sure to save room for dessert --- the pastiera (torte) is hard to find outside of bella Italia.
