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, which is open Wednesdays - Sundays. We are pleased to offer our $35 Prix Fixe menu during the winter months.
The outdoor area is covered but not heated.
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.

Excellent service, and a wonderful meal for each of us (4 people).
We have been to this restaurant many times, and we appreciate the terrace which is always available during this time of outdoor dining.
Highly recommended.

This was our first time at Gigino and we loved in. We were ringing in our wedding anniversary and the ambience/view was perfect. The staff were very courteous, well-informed about the menu/food and efficient. The "funghi e cipolle saltati"
(Mushrooms with onions, garlic, olive oil & parsley served on a lightly grilled bread) was soft yet not mushy and tasted delicious. Our son loved his rigatoni pulcinella (this was Rigatoni pasta with veal and pork sausage -- cooked in a cream sauce and drizzled with parmesan). It was a bit too creamy for me, but he said he could eat this "all day long"! We also ordered a "pollo scarpariello" (the server asked if we wanted white or dark meat, and we chose a combination of both). This was chunks of chicken sautéed with garlic, olive oil and herbs, and flavored with white wine. The chicken pieces melted in the mouth and it was really classy. We topped it off with some Italian red wine. Perfect! I guess the price was a little on the higher side, but imagine having you lunch on the water front looking at the Statue of Liberty straight ahead as you sip a glass of wine!!

We had an enjoyable experience. Service was attentive. Food was good and served hot which was very nice. The price- fixe dinner was ok but I had the tagliatelle bolognese which was very good.. the tiramisu was quite good and not sweet.
Of course the view of the Statue of Libertyvwas great. We watched the sunset
and the sky change to a blazing red. Luckily was a beautiful, clear evening.
Pleasant experience.

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.

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.
