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.

Odd set up. Most of the restaurant is outdoors under a tent. Restroom is a public park restroom adjacent to the tent.
However, the food was great! The service was really good too.

Best view in NYC - in fact, no comparison. We take out of towners here when the weather's good and watch their jaws drop as we eat dinner overlooking NY Harbor and the Statue of Liberty, whose very existence is threatened by ... never mind. You get it. The service is terrific. The food is VERY good. There's no place else like it.

You can hardly find the restaurant when it’s dark. Sign is really bad. This restaurant like many restaurants with a a great view, don’t try to hard to impress you with the decor,food, service or atmosphere. Food and service were okay. Waiter bring the food, take the plates and don’t even ask if everything is good, even when they see plates half fool with food left behind.
Prices are too high for what you get with the overal experience. Very disappointed.

It was a rainy day so we could not take advantage of an outdoor tale to see the view. The inside has no charm and is a bit crowded in the table structure. The food is good but the service was better.
I guess the charm of the restaurant is the outside view, they do not focus on the inside. The bathroom was very dirty as well.

Gigino at Wagner probably has the best view in the city, so booked to host our European guests. In our reservation, we made a point of requesting a table right in the front immediately next to Wagner Park. Due to rain outside tables were removed, but there were plenty others available in the front. Our guests had arrived a bit earlier and they were put in one of the back tables without a view. I asked the hostess to change our table, she said there were none available because all were booked. I asked why one was not reserved for us since we had asked for it, while they were kept for others. After checking our Open Table reservation, and I guess seeing our request, she gave us a table in the front which changed everyone's mood for the better and we had a very enjoyable time.

Our waiter Federico was absolutely great, very attentive and courteous. Appetizers were better than the main courses we thought. We will be back weather permitting.

The food was ok, it was very hot and lack of AC so it was very uncomfortable.

Gigino's entrance is very underwhelming and almost makes you question having made the reservation, but once you walk into the restaurant the view is beautiful and the quality of the food is equivalent. The ingredients are really fresh, the pasta is light and delicious.

In season (late spring, early fall) this is a gem in Manhattan. On a hot evening, the experience would not be so enjoyable. Great food and service!

Lovely location especially on a prefect day like today.
The winning dish was definitely the spaghetti in clam sauce melted in our mouth. The broccoli with garlic & oil simply prepared but wonderful. The tiramisu was very good as was the iced cappuccino. I would come back to try some different dishes. Gorgeous setting !

Great place just the weather makes it not too pleasant. And also not having their own restrooms. Makes it quite challenging to swing by the public restrooms, for something as simple as washing your hands..

We were celebrating our 30th Anniversary and they were able to accommodate our request to sit at a table closest to the view. We asked them not to rush our courses and they did not. We truly had a beautiful evening between the view and the outstanding food. Will definitely be back.

The view of the waterfront is extraordinary and I will return many times with out of town friends.
Pasta portions huge...should share or get appetizer size. Food fine but worth the experience!

Took my girl on a date, and I was blown away. The food was amazing and the ambiance was superb. If you are looking to take someone on a nice quite intimate date, this is the place. Only reason I gave the service three stars is because the attentiveness to drink orders could have been a little bit better but nontheless this is an amazing restaurant and i will 100% be back. 5/5

The perfect spot, for the perfect moment at the perfect time. Weather was sublime, the food excellent, service understated but excellent and it was a great evening. One of thee best parts was that the food did not come out overflowing the plate - portion control was perfect. Highly recommended for a special 'date night'.

One of the finest views in all of NYC. The food is and always has been superb. It was a hot night outdoors but the restaurant doesn't control the weather. Service was excellent but not intrusive. Ask for that RED head server.
