We'll be back soon!
After two visits, we really like this restaurant and look forward to coming back. It's casual, relaxed but very professional. The food and service have been consistently good, and sometimes surprisingly so. The smallish wine list is very well selected covering a range of types and prices. The noise level has been moderate on our two visits. We'll definitely see you again soon!

My wife and I had a great meal. I had the signature pasta dish and my wife had eggplant parmigiana and we each had a salad.Nice ambience, reasonable prices and good service. They should add a few more options for wines by the glass. Overall we loved it.

This was my second visit and both times I could not find fault with anything. Saying that is especially rare for me. Its my new favorite downtown spot. My first visit was with a large group with no reservations. We were seated almost immediately and everyone loved their meal. Second visit was a table of three for an early dinner and again all three of us loved our food.

A great neighborhood Italian restaurant. Have always enjoyed the pastas and the pizza looked great. My friend who knows wine was surprised to see a super Tuscan at a very reasonable price.

We arrived 30 minutes early
We arrived 30 minutes early for a 7pm reservation (we overestimated traffic) and were able to be seated immediately. The appetizers, wine, entrees and dessert were fantastic. As I was visiting family, the meal ran a little long. The servers allowed us to take our time and were not pushy at all. They will definitely see me here again.

Great Family Night
We had 10 of us, and couldn't have been more pleased. Had a great table, fantastic service and yummy food! What more could we ask for?

Gigino Trattoria hits the spot
Space is very pleasant, service very attentive, the food excellent. I would definatley return when the opportunity presents.
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
You have to try this place :)
It was quaint yet so accomodating to large parties. The food was great, service even better. I will be dining there again soon.

Very good local Italian
Located among a competitive Soho restaurant strip this restaurant provides height quality Italian classics from an extensive menu. For appetiser we ordered a baked melanzane and some mixed mushrooms with onions and herbs. Both were very good. For main plate I had the home made gnocchi and meatballs, which was excellent. My friend ordered a chicken salad with baby spinach and egg, which was the best kind of food - fresh ingredients prepared simply. The wine list has many good Italian choices.

I have been going to this
I have been going to this restuarant for over a decade and the place is solid!

We came at 10pm, were greeted
We came at 10pm, were greeted warmly and promptly shown a table of our choice partly on the sidewalk area in the front. The drinks were excellent and the waitress did a great job describing the menu and making sure that the food was served hot and in a timely fashion. I recommend the ambience. This is a good late night find.

A Tribeca treat
i work in the neighborhood, and recently had a great "date night" with my hubby right after work. I love how the front of the restaurant is open to the street, although it did get a bit warm as the evening temps remained in the mid 80s. The menu and specials really have something for every taste. We were eating on the light side due to the hot temps. Our tri-colori salad was deliciously fresh, and the kitchen was happy to split it into two portions for sharing. I had a beef carpaccio appetizer as a main dish. It was just perfect for a hot summer evening. My husband had a chicken dish that he really enjoyed. There was a nice selection of wine by the glass. Service was fine, not rushed; you can set your own pace. Hoping to return soon!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mussels were front and center throughout a large appetizer selection. Whichever version you choose, you won't be disappointed. My companion and I both chose the chicken parmagina main course and no doggie bags were needed. It was my third visit and there will be a fouth.
It was too hot to really dive into a broad selection of reasonably priced wines.

Turn on air conditioning!
Food and service are very good! But when it is 90 degrees out, to have no air conditioning on is unacceptable! Fans blowing and doors open, will not cool things off!
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Italian Food
Service can be a bit slow with severs, they are very nice and do not push items in you. It doesn't have a huge bar to sit at nor is it a lot of AC pumping. They brick oven their pizzas so you have to sit way in the back or outdoors so you do not over heat. Pizza pasta and salad are great everything is fresh so it makes everything even more great.

Changed a bit , but still good.
I had not dined here in 7 or 8 years since I left NYC, so I was thrilled it was still around, although it has changed. The food is mostly still wonderful: crispy Branzino roasted in the coal fired oven, tender, flavorful roasted pork chops, that amazing beet pasta; the only mistep: insalada caprese with pallid tomatoes and scant fresh basil (in mid-July). Atmoshere and service have changed; our foursome with res. was seated at a back table for 6-8 facing a wall covered with plastic sheeting. Our server was friendly but busy, did not check back after entrees were served. The ambiance is pleasant albeit very noisy. It is now more of a family restaurant. I would not recommend it for a special occasion or important business dinner.

Always Really Good
Gigino is consistently great. Don't let the tacky yellow neon sign throw you off... I've never had a bad meal here & its never been a problem getting a table.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice find, not touristy at all
We stayed at the Conrad Hotel a few blocks away and looked for something local, not crowded by other tourists. Gigino was a great find and I recommended it on the very next day to customers who were staying at Times Square. It's worth the ride down there to escape the chaos!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great find!!
we ate here two years ago on Christmas Day and have been trying to get back. we loved our meal...again

A Tasty Reunion
Friends who hadn't dined together in years found a warm and welcoming spot at Gigino Trattoria. Even though part of our party was late and we had an extra person more than the reservation, our accommodations were moved to keep us comfortable, and everyone was very pleasant and seemed to be happy we were there. The service was excellent, meals were devoured amidst happy conversation, and the bartender makes a very fine Manhattan. One diner's gluten/lactose-intolerances were easily accommodated by the diverse and delicious menu. Very happy we chose Gigino's Trattoria and we'll be back.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently good Over the years
Just had a Thursday night dinner with a group of nine including children. Sat in the upper deck and they couldn't have been more accommodating..every dish was freshly made and spot on..can't wait to go back..
8/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Delicious! We'll be back!
Have been to Gigino near The Ritz downtown and always enjoy our meals but had never been to Gigino Trattoria. I always look for restaurants with a diverse menu, great cocktails/wine & al fresco seating. Gigino Trattoria was perfect for our girls night out! We arrived earlier than our reservation but were seated immediately at one of the two sidewalk tables. Loved the options on the cocktail menu & chose several of the house specials - delicious! Our waitress was phenomenal! She knew the dishes inside and out, and was able to help us decide on our entrees. Wanted to try one of the pizzas so she suggested we share it as an appetizer and that worked out beautifully. And everything was absolutely delicious! Loved our wine choice, too.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place was awesome! I actually thanked and praised my girlfriend several times for picking the place. Food was amazing. Service was timely and courteous. Just an all around great experience. I will return soon.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Go to restaurant
We been to this restaurant 5-6 imes. On this occasion we had an early reservation(that's why they earned the quiet rating). Everything, everytime has been consistantly good/great. This place is good for both a quiet romantic dinner, and also a great place for a group. We will definetly be back.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Imade a reservation for a business lunch. The location is easy to find and close to subways. The decor inside is very period and welcoming. The staff and the service was very good from greeting to exit greeting. Te food was very nice and the menu has a great selection, something for everyone. Iwould definitely recommend to friends and go back myself.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a little bit of confusion on welcoming. Set at the bar, waiting for our table to be ready but were not able to get a drink. Chaos... Waiters were all over trying to find their parties but they didn't seemed to look successful. Anyway, after sitting for 20 min at the bar without drinks, we went downstairs for our dinner. From that on, I was very impressed with the food and excellent service. Everything we ordered was very tasty; appetizers, salad,main course and deserts...

The minute you enter you know
The minute you enter you know by the relaxed, cozy and lively atmosphere that this is a spot people return to over and over again. the staff has a relaxed yet professional and confident attitude. The food is excellent. It is fresh (think farm to table, sea to table etc), interestingly flavored that are authentic. Fish dished were the big hit along with Beef carpacho, and the pasta dish with Salmon and basil was outstanding. Enjoy!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great find
I would recommend Giginos to anyone going to New York City. It is located in a beautiful setting and has a great view of the river and the Statue of Liberty. Sitting on their dect watching the sun go down behind the Statue of Liberty was a high light of our trip. The nightime view with all the lights was beautiful also.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food as always
We live down the block and come here often. Food is really good. Service is good too. For first timers I would recommend to come on. a weekday first. Weekends here are too noisy.
10/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great energy and food
Just a fun Italian with good food, mixed clientele including families, and great energy.
10/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
fabulous and easy in a neighborhood where familiar is getting boring
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
We've been to Gigino's because of the movie "Dinner Rush", which is in my opinion one of the best films ever. The place has this magic atmosphere for us. The real service Is really a nice surprise.
I happily recommend for a romantic dinner.

Downtown Neighborhood Gem
I brought friends from out of town here to get the flavor of a real New York restaurant. They all enjoyed it, though I have to say the noise level is a bit high at times. Food and service were all very good and the place is just a genial place to eat.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
I love everything about this resturant. It is my mom and I's fav resturant in the area!

Wonderful gem in Tribeca
I chose this restaurant from an online search due to walking location near the 911 memorial when I was visiting NYC. What a gem I found. We 3 girls had a great dinner. The pizza oven made the restaurant smell so good! Food, service, wait staff and management attitudes were so friendly and inviting. I love this restaurant and will go back if I ever visit NYC again.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, comfortable atmosphere
Gigino has been one of our favorite New York restaurants for over a decade. it's a neighborhood Italian restaurant that goes well beyond the usual pasta and pizza. It's crowded and noisy and you have to make a reservation most of the time in order to get a decent table, but the food is superb and the daily specials really do vary daily.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Gigino is my go-to Italian hot spot in Tribecca. The food is delicious and always well prepared. I am gluten-free and they consistently have GF pasta of good quality. I have plenty of options to choose from and absolutely love this restaurant.
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my sweetheart to this restaurant to celebrate his birthday. The food was great and the white wine sangria was perfect. The service was up to par. Overall a great dining experience.
