Italian
As one of the best kept secrets in New York City, owners Bob Giraldi and Phil Suarez along with executive chef Luigi Celentano, have taken great pride in bringing Italian cuisine to Battery Park City for nearly twenty years. Nestled between the Wagner Hotel and the Statue of Liberty, Gigino can be found just a few steps south of The Jewish Heritage Museum. Open year round, Gigino at Wagner Park is a great place for a romantic evening or family get together. Gigino at Wagner Park’s outside dining area offers a spectacular view of Lady Liberty and the New York Harbor in the summer.

冬場はテラス席が閉鎖されますが、
その分静かな雰囲気が味わえます。
もう何度も訪れていますが、
このお店のパスタは本当に絶品です。

We just happened into Gigino, because it was across the street from our hotel. What a fortuitous surprise! The restaurant is small and quiet, and the Italian food was authentic and perfectly prepared. We shared a simple arugula salad; I had seafood risotto; my friend had the fish special, which was Branzino with seafood. The seafood was cooked perfectly, and the dishes were piping hot. We each had a glass of the red wine our waiter recommended, which was delicious. I would happily go back.

We went to Gigino in order to be near an event at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, which is a few steps away from the restaurant. Unfortunately it was hard to find -- and the taxi and Uber drivers could not get me directly to it. While the food and ambiance were fine, and we did make our curtain time, it would have been nice to get there without walking 3 blocks in the cold wind to find the door. I found only one person in the immediate neighborhood who could give explicit directions on how to get there. A big sign out front would have helped a lot!

We went on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant is right in Battery Park, a few steps away from the Museum of Jewish Heritage. It is right on the water in Wagner Park. The food was delicious, friendly service, quiet and a real find. The food was fresh and well prepared, with creativity.

Our dining experience on Thursday night December 27 was wonderful! The food, the drinks, the ambiance, the service, and even the view of the Statue of Liberty from inside were all fantastic!! We enjoyed our first time experience so much that we are bringing friends with us to have dinner tonight (Saturday 12/29). We can’t wait to share this delightful experience with others!😊👌🏻

Figured this would be nice for Christmas holidays with ambiance warmth etc. Not much at all. Christmas tree in closed area. Nothing basically in dining area. Disappointing. Went across st to Wagner Hotel to their beautiful lobby for holiday ambience. Giorgio’s only nice in summer at sunset with great view...

Enjoyed the price fixe meal. The chicken tortellini vegetable soup was light and tasty. The Pollo Francesina was so soft you didn’t need a knife to cut it. The tiramisu for dessert was just enough of a portion so as not to feel overstuffed while attending the theater afterwards.
The glass of wine ordered was a generous serving.

Would go back again. Probably amazing to sit outside on a nice summer night and view the Statue of Liberty.

On holiday from England. Very accommodating as we were 2hrs early. The set menu was very good value and we both thought our choice of starter, main course and sweet was excellent, very good portion sizes and flavour.
Thank you, it completed our great trip to the Statue and Ellis Island.

My friend and I dined here on a Monday night and there wasn’t a soul there. It was nice to have the entire place to ourselves and the view is spectacular. The food was delicious and the service was great (you would hope given no one was there). I’m sure this place gets full on a weekend so our experience wasn’t necessarily common, but it was fantastic.

I love this restaurant in the summer when you can sit outside and enjoy the view...but find the harsh overhead lighting during the other months cold and glaring. It takes away from any intimate dining experience. If the lighting in this restaurant was changed - it would be romantic and fabulous!

After reading less than great reviews I was skeptical but on the Wednesday evening in early November it was everything I wanted.
Without crowds the service was very good, the food was well prepared and the view of the Statue of Liberty was unobstructed. A very relaxing dinner.

The fish was delicious but at one point we started to smell the strong odor of cleaning product coming from another room. It was so potent it gave us headaches. Also, there was some crazy plumbing issue going on in a bathroom. I'd been before in the summer which was much nicer because you could sit outside.

The management was extremely accommodating to us when our party increased from two to six, and we all made the curtain next door at the Museum at 7 PM with ease. The wait staff was helpful, and very nice. The food was delivered quickly and was delicious. And the water views and Statue of Liberty views were spectacular.
