What the media have been saying about us
"Michelin alternatives: Where to go when starred restaurants are booked out.
What to order: Signature Gattopardo Seafood Stew In Terracotta Pot ($42) and Charred Octopus, Sicilian Olives, Sun Dried Tomatoes And Baby Potatoes ($28) This Italian restaurant is one of my favourites. Chef Lino Gauro, who is from the island of Sicily in Italy, is one of the best Western seafood chefs in Singapore.
I find it hard to resist his seafood stew, which comes in a stone pot that keeps everything warm. The stew is filled with mussels, squid and fish in a tomato broth that hits the spot every time."
Take The Journey
WINE & DINE
"Located at Tras Street amongst the cluster of reputable restaurants serving quality cuisines in Singapore, Gattopardo holds its own with fine Italian cuisine that satisfy any gourmet. The long-standing restaurant executes authentic Italian dishes with artistic presentations. Signature items not to be missed include the Polipo (charred octopus) with Sicilian olives and sun dried tomatoes, tagliolini all’uovo con I ricci di mare (egg tagliolini with Japanese sea urchin sauce), and its house specialty zuppa di pesce “Gattorpardo’. Service here is excellent – each member of the team is familiar and knowledgeable about the food and wine list, giving great recommendations from the extensive menu, and truly embodies professional service with pride and smiles."
THE PEAK SINGAPORE
"Gattopardo’s chef-owner Lino Sauro loves Instagram and uses it actively to share snippets of his life — his children, inspiration and producers he has met — but he remains very much a traditionalist when it comes to cooking. “Flavour always comes first,” he says, adding that his food probably gets all the social media attention partly because of the new plates he brought in from Dubai."
