Gigino at Wagner Park’s unheated outside dining area offers a spectacular view of Lady Liberty and the New York Harbor in the summer, yet also has a small indoor dining area in winter. Currently, the outdoor area is covered but not heated and will reopen on March 8th, 2021.
Nestled between the Wagner Hotel and the Statue of Liberty, Gigino can be found just a few steps south of The Museum of Jewish Heritage. Owner Bob Giraldi and Phil Suarez along with executive chef Luigi Celentano, have taken great pride in bringing Italian cuisine to Battery Park City for over twenty years.

My wife and I live in the neighborhood and haven’t been in awhile. So we decided to go after our Italian friends raved about it. It’s located near the river, so on a nice day, eating outdoors is highly recommended. However, the interior is essentially a hole in the wall. They dressed up one wall in the restaurant with a quilted pattern which was an attempt at beautifying the space. However, the place is in desperate need of a paint job and replaced baseboards and flooring. However, the folks made up for the lack of ambiance. Everything was delicious and nicely presented. We had the bruschetta as a starter. My wife had the Farfalle Isabella. I had the Gamberoni Portofino.

Magical setting on the Hudson River. Excellent fish and pasta dishes.
Great service.
Can’t think of a better place to enjoy a meal outdoors in the city on a beautiful evening.

Our party of 8 enjoyed our family get together at Gigino while visiting NYC. The staff was friendly and attentive, and the view was an added treat for many of our first time travelers. This was a great way to finish an afternoon of sightseeing in the Wall Street area.

Very pleasant day to be sitting outdoors. The restaurant was not crowded and I was given a lovely table, even though I was alone. Caesar salad was delicious (as always) and the chicken soup was amazing - nice-sized pieces of chicken, small pasta noodles and some of the freshest and tastiest vegetables I’ve ever had in soup. The service was amazingly efficient and all staff personable. A lovely meal!

Midway through our dinner our server asked us to move tables accommodate a large party. My friend uses a walker and moves with much effort and pain. I'd called ahead to specifically request a table near the outside edge of seating which they provided. We declined because it takes her several minutes to move and is painful only to have to get up and do that again when we leave. A few minutes later the host or manager came by to ask her to "do him a favor " and move tables again. My friend was clearly uncomfortable and put on the spot. I told him we already declined and not to ask again. I understand any restaurant trying to maximize space but this second request was rude and then we felt rushed out. We still finished our meal but this left a sour note on the evening.

Flying little gnats we’re all over us with outside seating , in our drinks and food. Had no cover our drinks with napkins. Had to move our table to further inside. Waiter was forgetful and actually checked drinks to see if bugs were really in the drinks, inspected them. But did replace them. SMH. Food was excellent.

I was dining alone— my last night in Manhattan! What a wonderful way to end a stay in my favorite city! Excellent food— I appreciate the ability to make healthy choices. Loved my chocolate dessert— great mix of flavors and again, perfect serving size. Can’t say enough about the super attentive but not obtrusive service and the gorgeous views. I will be back!!

Always a pleasure and last night was no exception. Gigino has long been our go-to place for special occasions and a destination for out of town guests. The view of the Statue of Liberty never fails to astound, plus the food and service are top notch. I always get the special spaghetti padrino, a dish I've never seen anywhere else and adore. So flavorful and unusual. My companions had seafood and raved. Great drinks and delicious salads. We saved room for the tiramisu, which is excellent. Love the lemon tart and chocolate lava cake as well. Highly recommend.

The view, the food, and the service, are all outstanding. This is one of my very favorite restaurants. Sitting outside, you have a wonderful view of the Statue of Liberty and the shoreline. What could be better? I got a glass of wonderful Prosecco along with linguine with white clam sauce which was outstanding and always is at this restaurant. In addition, I also got the eggplant with tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese appetizer to go along with it. It was also phenomenal. And their lattes are one of the best lattes I have ever had. The only thing that it would’ve made it even more perfect is if it could’ve been a bit quieter but no big complaints in that regard.
