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.

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..

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

Food is on the more expensive end, but delicious. Great service and Statue of Liberty view. Nice, quiet atmosphere. Outdoor seating is ideal.

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.

I like Gigino for the setting - close to NYC harbor, with sun, sky, a light breeze. I enjoy sitting outside, sipping a drink and feeling relaxed. The food is OK, but that's not the reason I go there. For me, Gigino is a little taste of Bellagio in NYC.

Gigino's is our favorite "special occasion" place. Truly everything is excellent: terrific Italian food, lovely hospitality (that doesn't force you out the minute you finish eating). The view of the harbor is spectacular. All of it makes for a really satisfying and enchanting evening. Thank you, Gigino, for making our anniversary very special.

I ate dinner here on Saturday night with my mother. Our waiter was great. So friendly and helpful with selecting our dinner options as well as being attentive. He was able to joke around and laugh with/at my mother's and my jokes. The restaurant itself is very nice. Right on the water with awesome views (you can see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island). The food. Wow. It was phenomenal. My mother and I are already trying to figure out how to make the dish ourselves at home because it was that good. Would recommend this restaurant 10/10.

At first glance of the entrance of the restaurant we were taking a bit back. Then we entered and sat outside on the water. It was the most beautiful view in the world, sitting in NYC, on the water with nice park next to you overlooking the glories Statue iOF Liberty. The view was amazing. The food was great and the service was superb and amazingly enough the price was reasonable. Highly recommended and request outside table. Gaz.

I have eaten at the restaurant during the week with clients many times. First time on a Saturday. The food is always good and service also. Only trouble is that families with children playing in grass in front restaurant ruined the great view of the harbour and the atmosphere was noisy. This included a dog that was dining with a patron that kept barking.
I would go back weekday but maybe not consider for weekend.

I can't believe how reasonable the prices were. The location is outside right next to the water and eating dinner during the sunset was stunning. The menu had a lot of options and everything was delicious and came out fairly quickly. We went on a Tuesday and it was packed so I can only assume you need reservations in advance for the weekend.

Very good, except one of the patrons broke a dish on my wife's leg and the staff was slow to clean up and not as courtious as would be expected for such event. Great view and table set up was amazing.

The food was fine. The view as always was marvelous The service was very slow, and no one came over to explain/apologize after a half-hour wait for appetizers. Also had a problem with bugs by the dozen flying into our wine glasses. The response? “That never happened before.”

one goes for the views, especially as the sun sets. It's a million dollar skyline, had for the sum of a moderately priced meal. As the kitchen is small and there's a lot of diners sitting on the verandah, be prepared to wait for your food. But we're here for the view, after all.

We love this restaurant. The chef is fantastic. The dishes he prepares are a pleasure to eat. And, the views are not too bad either, e.g. Statue of liberty, Ellis Island, NY Harbor.

Try it, you'll like it!
