Nestled between the Ritz Carlton and the Statue of Liberty, Gigino can be found just a few steps south of The Jewish Heritage Museum.

    Just had lunch at Gigino's two days in a row. The first was to celebrate first day of college with an 18 year old friend. The second to celebrate summer with a 95 year old friend. Both thought I had picked the perfect place. Everything was perfect: food, view, service. Funghi misti appetizer and beet salad were especially amazing, but everything delicious!

    Where else can you eat well-prepared food, on a pleasant outdoor patio overlooking NY Harbor and the Statue of Liberty? Nowhere but Gigino at Wagner Park. This s a beautiful spot to dine on a lovely Spring, Summer or Fall evening. Menu has many excellent choices, food was made with excellent ingredients and we were surrounded by lots of people - including a mix of native NY'ers and tourists - all having fun! Service was casual and friendly, and we weren't rushed at all during our meal. On a warm day it can get a bit hot as the sun gets lower, below the level of the awning, so get an interior patio table if that would bother you. This place is a real gem! Come and enjoy.

    If location is everything, this might be the best restaurant in lower Manhattan, with its picture-perfect setting overlooking New York Harbor. At sunset, it is nothing less than sublime. But sitting outside is everything here--nothing inside will do! A canopy overhead offers some protection from the elements but doesn't hamper the fresh experience of dining here. And PS, the food is very solid Italian fare, lots to choose from, and not too pricey. I highly recommend this place to locals and visitors alike.

    Ate here for the view rather than the food (which was perfectly acceptable, but not going to win any gongs), but it was almost ruined by a Special Event that overran. Their answer to Special Events seems to be to have people mingle on the terrace in front, completely blocking the view of the "French Lady" and the noise level from them is so high we couldn't even hear the specials. When moved, into the care of another waiter, the specials appeared to have changed. And then we were obstructed from the view by the closed canvas wall. It took me several attempts to find someone who could open it. After the Special Event moved on, the view was lovely and the evening improved, but worth asking if they have a Special Event and avoid if they do.

    Went for a lunch date and we were both amazed at the food and scenary. It's a great gem in battery park to get away from all the tourists, yet have a breath-taking view. All pastas were made fresh with great ingredients. Pretty hefty variety of options which makes it easier for everyone to find something of their liking. Service was great and arrived early (12:15ish) to pick great front row seats of the statue of liberty. Will return again.

    The place used to have umbrellas that covered the patio so you were eating outdoors. Now they have a semi permanent structure that takes the charm away. You never went there for the food. It was always the environment of the outdoors. Now it's just like any other restaurant with a nice view if you are sitting in the first row. Good for the restaurant - bad for the clients. No reason to schlep down there now!

    It is always special going ot Gigino's - the most civilized restaurant in Battery Park! One thing to note - in the summer there is a music series going on - so you will either love that or hate it. Check before you book if it is a music night at Wagner Park.

    Summer wouldn't be summer without eating at Gigino's at Wagner Park. Year after year it's always a treat--the view, the food, the friendly buzz. What could be better than that amazing cold tomato soup, the sun setting behind the Statue of Liberty, and the silhouettes of sailboats as the moon rises above lower Manhattan.

    From the host and hostess to the fabulous waitstaff menu and food it was a great lunch. The views. Cannot be duplicated and the new outdoor covering, replacing the umbrellas, give every table shade on a sunny, hot day. We had salads topped with chicken or shrimp and the pastas were great, even on a hot day. Out of towners and city for alike loved it. Would lve to try it for sunset dinner. Must be fantastic.
