Gattopardo Ristorante di Mare
The young front-of-house crew sets the stage for a nice dining experience at this warmly appointed restaurant, set across two restored shophouses. Chef Lino Sauro’s brand of elegant Sicilian cuisine is, naturally, what draws the regular set of white-collar diners to return time and again. The portions are generous at every course, with dishes such as chunks of charred, tender octopus served with sun-dried tomatoes and chickpea salad easily sating appetites. The lunch sets present excellent value and is served with friendly efficiency. Sunlight bathes the restaurant in an airy glow throughout the day, transporting diners to a charming Italian town, if only for the duration of a satisfying afternoon meal.
