Il Gattopardo

Went this past weekend. Loved it. Small space, but not overcrowded like many NY restaurants. Simple white decor. Had the meatballs appetizer. Delicious. Wrapped snugly in a cabbage leaf, sitting in a light thyme sauce. Not the kind of meatballs you're used to having, but delicious! Also tried the artichoke parm appetizer. Chopped crispy baby artichokes with just the right abount of sauce and mozz. Also very good. Pasta course was a homemade pappardelle-type pasta with a meat sauce. Not the best I've ever had, but still quite good. Finished the meal with the fish stew. Shrimp just a touch overdone, but the broth was excellent, perfect for dipping in the supplied toasted crostini. I would certainly return again.
