Gattopardo has been sharing our brand of Sicilian cuisine over the years, designed by award-winning chef Lino Sauro and his team. Located at a charming pre-historic pre-war shophouse in the heart of the bustling Tanjong Pagar neighbourhood, our team has curated many experiences to remember, from personal to corporate.
This is possible because our philosophy is simple – to fill our space with happy memories of our food.
Just like in Sicily.
"Be refreshed by award winning Chef Lino Sauro's unique style of cooking. The Sicilian-style restaurant, which was recently recognised as one of the "Top Italian Restaurants" by the international, prestigious Gambero Rosso Restaurant Guide, features stalwart dishes such as the
Gattopardo Signature Seafood Stew, and specialty handmade pastas using only freshest, seasonal ingredients. Be delighted by the a la carte menu which changes with the seasons, making this a dining destination to return to for more unforgettable delectable moments."
