A word from Gigino Trattoria
Gigino Trattoria opened its doors in August of 1994. The owners, Bob Giraldi and Phil Suarez, along with executive chef Luigi Celentano, have kept Gigino flourishing in the ever-changing Tribeca neighborhood. Chef Celentano creates both the menu and wine list, with daily specials of seasonally fresh seafood, game and vegetables. Gigino prides itself on the fact that all their dishes are prepared to order and almost all their pastas and breads are house-made. Fresh fish specials are featured on the “specials blackboard” daily, and it’s safe to say they also have the best pizza in Tribeca! Dining at Gigino Trattoria is a pleasure every time!Continued
Diner Reviews
  • "Always a favorite in TriBeCa, will look forward to dinner again in January. We had an outside table on a perfect evening. How fortunate were we!"

  • "The menu at Gigino is varied enough to satisfy a wide range of eating preferences, and the atmosphere is comfortable and unpretentious. Although clearly a neighborhood restaurant, its proximity to the Chambers St subway station makes it is an easy destination for anyone who uses that line. The food was uniformly excellent -- in my party we ate fish and pasta -- though somewhat overpriced for what it is. There are a few tables outside that are quite close together -- dining inside is a better option. We remained for 20 minutes after paying the check, and since no one was waiting for a table, we were allowed to sit undisturbed until we were ready to leave. Walk south when you leave, for a full view of the new trade center tower."

  • "In NYC on business and met a contact here for dinner. Food was good - you won't get a bad meal here - but nothing stood out as memorable. Waiter pushed nightly specials hard and was decent at service, but didn't seem to be very interested in figuring out what would match up well with our personal likes and dislikes. This place is good but you can see how they could really do a lot more with such a quality foundation they have in place. Decore/ambiance was excellent, except our table was crowded up against serveral others making for tight navigation with arriving and departing diners."

  • "Loved the experience, visiting from out of state and this was fabulous food. Comfortable atmosphere and waitstaff was very accomodating and knowledgeable. Definitely would recommend and would return. Food was fresh, innovative, and outstanding,"

  • "I work in the neighborhood, and Gigino Trattoria is my go-to place when meeting a friend for a special lunch when I can extend my break beyond an hour. In the warm weather, with the front area is open to the street, and the warm earth-tones of the interior, it feels like a visit to Italy. The menu selections have a great variety, especially in choice of salads, the food is impeccably fresh, and I love having gluten-free pasta options. I have not had a disappointing meal at Gigino, and my luncheon companions are always eager to return. The service, however, can be uneven. Looking forward to going back soon!"

  • "This is a great spot to go in the neighborhood for Italian food. We went after work during the week and were served quickly but weren't rushed and had time to talk and catch up. The food was good, plenty of choices, and the doors were open to the outside allowing a nice outdoor dining experience even though we were technically inside. Price was reasonable and I would go there again."

  • "We usually go for dinner when it's very noisy and busy, so we decided to go for lunch because food is good and there is something to eat for everyone in our family. Food was very good but service was poor, like no water glass refills ,,, no bread was put on table."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I love the food in Gigino it always taste fresh and homemade. The wait staff is very friendly."

  • "I was meeting a friend for dinner that I had not seen since the last time we visited Gigino... we talked and ate and ended up sitting at our table for almost FOUR HOURS. we were not rushed out, we were offered more drinks. this made for a lovely evening."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "This has been our go-to place for many years. Soups, salads, pasta, pizza and entrees (especially fish) are all creative and really good. The ambiance is lovely - it can get noisy but is usually at a level where you can hear each other. "

  • "Sunday eve was one of those date nights when all the stars seem aligned. A big part of it was our wonderful experience at Trattoria Gigino. The waitress& sommelier were warm &welcoming. We had the best table- just outside the patio doors open to the night.Though crowded, there was an comfortable illusion of roominess due to the thoughtful positioning of the tables. The restaurant's perfect for people-watching, & across the street is the lush greenery of Washington Market Park. We began with a simple La Caprese appetizer followed by Ossobuco -my husband & Cosciotto di Pollo- me-all superb &satisfying. For dessert my husband- Panettone Rum bread pudding, and I- chocolate lava cake-both heavenly.Ended w/ whimsical Espresso Martinis! "

  • "Took clients there for lunch. Great food, great variety. Appetizers were delicous. BRushetta, mozzerella, eggplant, and calmari- all wonderful. Pizzas are amazing. Pasta dishes were interesting and unique. "

  • "I visit NYC once a quarter and Gigino Trattoria is always on the list of at least once for dinner, sometimes twice while visiting..."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "When we arrived, I told the hostess that it was my mother's birthday, and asked if they could bring a little something with a candle in it for her. The hostess said she would take care of it. The meal and the check came and went (food and service were good) with no acknowledgement of the birthday from the staff. That's pretty freaking inexcusable. I've been to this restaurant dozens of times over the years, but a week after this experience, I still don't think I'll ever go back, if this is how much the management cares about their guests."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Service really started out well. But the food did not live up to the service. The food went downhill with each course so I would start and stop with appetizers. Dessert was a joke. My wife had strawberries--- 4 sliced in half on a bit of whipped cream and zabaglione There must be a strawberry shortage!!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We ordered 2 salads and 2 pastas. The salads were quite good - not amazing but hearty and tasty. The pasta special was not very good the tuna meatball were dry, pasta overcooked - it went mostly uneaten. The other pasta - a basic spaghetti was good. All in all, we enjoyed the dining experience but found the food to be ok."

  • "First time at Gigino and was very pleased. I started with a pear salad with cheese....and both were shaved so thin they were almost transparent and very delicious. I followed it with the chicken parmigiana and this was a pounded breast with the wing bone still attached...well cooked with just a little penne. Smart portion since you had both but not overdone on carbs. Go...you will not regret it."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Had been here with the same friend about 2 years ago. The specials menu seemed more varied than I remember. The entrees were very good, but could have been a little hotter when served. Service was really outstanding and our server was really enthustiastic about the menu (you don't find that too often). Overall, the experience was very good and I would go back again."

  • "Convergence of ambience and food merge in a Tuscany setting. Wonderful"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We ordered a Caesar salad to share. The server should have mentioned that it was a small portion. I thought it was a skimpy single portion. It was very tasty. My mom had the mushroom risotto which she loved. It was a respectable size. My cousin had the shrimp with fettuccine. She said it was scrumptious. It was way less pasta than I'm used to seeing in a restaurant. I had the lemon chicken with string beans. Again, it was fabulous. The sauce was lemony and the chicken was cooked to perfection. We certainly had room for dessert. Overall I would say do not be modest in courses."

  • "Just love this place! Wonderful Italian restaurant with quirky atmosphere! The food tastes fresh and delicious always!! We have tried a number of different meals from chicken to veal to fish and pasta…we are always happy!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Restaurant is a solid performer in all aspects. No, it is not a high end gourmet palace. It is not priced like one either. It serves very reasonably priced somewhat inventive food in a slightly crowded professionally run dining room. I have paid more than twice the price for a meal that isn't as good. The City needs more restaurants like Gigino."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We enjoyed the meal and the drinks. This neighborhood has several fine restaurants nearby in the same price range and we like them better. While everything was good we felt that it was not good bang for the buck. The dishes were innovative in terms of what they offered but the flavors were not extraordinaire. We will give it one more shot."

  • "Menu had a variety of options and they also had an extensive specials list for that evening's dinner. Everything we had was good. They also give you bread to start with."

  • "Have been to this restaurant before for dinner and had pasta but had been wanting to try again to try pizza. Headed there for a business lunch and we all ordered pizzas. Well what a delight. Yum yum yum. Definitely try them. Right out of the brick oven and so tasty!"

  • "This was our second visit and it was as good as the first - excellent home-made pastas, fresh, creative salads and an attentive but not overbearing staff. Loved it and will most definitely return!"

  • "First time in Tribeca Preforming Art Center...looking for fun place before concert. Gigino truly was outstanding. I had the gnocchi and my mate had the clams vongole. I usually share my dish, but with guilty pleasure, I ate the whole meal offering only a tiny bite! Our secret was to book reservations at 5:30 PM -before the crowds arrive. Attentive service, cannot wait to return!"
