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.

Everything about Gigino's is FABULOUS! Run don't walk. Our waitress was wonderful. Friendly, funny and had GREAT taste. It was my birthday and I asked her opinion on everything and it was all spot on delicious and divine. The wine was perfect, as was the view. A perfect evening in the midst of the chaotic and stressful existence we have been living.

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday and it was amazing. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was exceptional. The only issue I had was that we did have to wait about 30 to 40 minutes to be seated even with reservations but all in all the view and the atmosphere made up for everything. Will defiantly be going back to get some more of that chicken parm!!!!

I’ve been a regular since they opened 20 years ago . Had a res this past Saturday with friends in from Princeton for a birthday lunch. 3 pm Saturday and they would only seat us in the blazing sun next to the park area with kids running and screaming. People seated under the tent area not eating (who’s kids are likely the ones running in the grass and screaming) camp out like they’re at the beach for the day. Therefore, I had to leave as my skin cannot take sun at all. I left my friends there to eat bc in the age of COVID finding a place is a project.

There was a table for 4 in the shade which they wouldn’t give me bc they were waiting a wedding party? Whatever.

I’ll wait til next summer.

I loved the amazing view from the restaurant of the waterfront with the breeze from the water! I would definitely return with other friends and family to try more tasty dishes. This was the perfect place for a birthday celebration! The table set up was perfect for social distancing. My family loved their meals, the delicious bread and the service was impeccable!

Beautiful outside dining spot with a view of the Statue of Liberty and sunset! The whole experience exceeded our expectations! Food was amazing; peperina (pear) salad, caprese salad, shrimp positano and pollo scarpiello. Service was fabulous, from our waiter Frederico to the food servers! The tables were adequately spaced and it felt fun and safe to be dining at a restaurant! We will be back!

The service was very attentive and extremely friendly. I have dined at this restaurant many times in the past (pre-COVID). The food was most of the time very good and the ambiance and overall experience was outstanding. This time, I was disappointed because the dishes were not as flavorful and well garnished as in the past.
What felt not reassuring at all was the bathroom. It was extremely neglected and not clean (no paper towels, broken toilet paper holder, dirty soap dispenser, had seen better days, trash can rusty. It would have made a huge difference if the bathroom would have been prepped up for a "Corona Virus dining experience" with a clear signal of: We care for the safety of our clients and want to make them feel welcome! I would recommend to add soap dispensers that are non-touch, as well as stacks of paper towels, fresh painted walls, new trash can and disinfectant and regular cleaning.
Otherwise I was happy to be able to enjoy the awesome vista and the excellent table service for our family birthday get together.

Lovely views on a sunny day. Food was good, but appetizers are expensive and very small. We had the tuna and eggplant, but there were only two tiny pieces of fish and few vegetables. The "champagne" on the wine list was awful and I sent it back--very sweet and served too warm. The bathroom situation is ridiculous--one small room, unisex with no paper towels and a long line. The autodry machine was running constantly, making it hot and noisy. Disgusting. With at least 50 diners during COVID, they really need two bathrooms. I don't like sharing with men--they make a mess. You can always judge a good restaurant by the rest rooms. Otherwise, the shrimp were tasty and the sauteed calamata pasta was unique and well done.

It was a great area and lot of space between tables which I felt safe. However, the service was okay...our table was on the side so the waitress wasn't keeping tabs on us and long wait. I saw other tables in the main area in and out quicker...The food was good.

We are locals and love to dine at Giginos. I had a salmon dish it was excellent. My husband ate the broccoli rabe with orchiete. The server was really nice and when it started to rain they moved us farther under the tent. This is the best view in battery park. Just beautiful.

The place has an amazing view. The staff is kind but my lunch was delayed, I waited for 40 minutes. Even the food tasted good I found this situation unfair because the place is not cheap. In addition even though the waitress came several times apologizing because of the delay she never offer to us any discount or compensation. Just as a suggestion if they want to maintain a good reputation they should consider being more attentive with that details.

Such a beautiful setting. Our reservation was around 1:00PM and it was a very sunny, hot day. They sat us at a table in full direct sunlight - there were no umbrellas in the row of tables we were in (would have been so much more comfortable if they had them). I asked 3 times if we could move to a shadier table that had just opened up. The person heading the door seemed annoyed, but in the end we moved. The rest of the meal was very pleasant - the waiters were attentive and the food was very good. And you can’t beat the view. I will definitely go back. One final note - the bathroom was very grimy, which was surprising because the restaurant is nice. In this time of COVID, most restaurants are taking more steps to keep things clean. My dining companion even commented on it without me mentioning it.
