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.

Usually I like this restaurant but this time the wait for food was too long and the portions were too small. Seemed like they were so busy they were running out of food. Dont go on a weekend.

After a nice walk in the park, I like to stop at Gigino for a drink and a light meal. I ordered a salad and a $ 17 glass of rose. According to the wine list and the bill the wine was "Rose Provencal", from Provence. I really liked the wine, so I asked the bar tender for the name of the wine. After an awkward moment, the bartender showed me a bottle of completely different wine. What was I drinking? What was I paying for? This is the second time I have a bad experience with the drink.

The views are beautiful and the food is delicious. Make a reservation if you decide on sunset (anytime after 7) The specials are always interesting, this time the cavatelli with cauliflower was yummy!! Service took longer than usual, the server always appeared with a ‘shadow’ so we assumed they were training new staff (?) maybe getting ready for the season in 2 weeks... I’ll be back for more!! ❤️

The location is convenient - close to Battery Park - and the view from our outside table was pleasant, looking out over the river. The ambiance led us to expect better food than was delivered, although the mushroom appetizer was very good. The tortellini was tasty and prettily presented, but the chicken parmigiana was nothing special. We were seated outside on a borderline windy/misty/cool evening. I suppose we could have asked to move inside as it cooled, but we just hurried through dinner instead. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Overall. not bad, but not special either.

We had 2 appetizers and 2 mains to share: the roasted potatoes, special fried seafood, special homemade truffle tagliatelle and lasagne. All were fantastic and very flavorful, the home made pasta was very bouncy and delicious. We decided to order desert, as this was a graduation dinner celebration. The three of us were very full though, so we decided to share a dessert. We ordered the chocolate lava cake which was so very small, not very melty in the middle, and not very delicious. A tad of a let-down after an amazing dinner.

my daughter, Samantha, got married at Gigino's May of 2017 and it was a beautiful event! Julie from Gigino's was outstanding and made the occasion effortless.

This past Sunday...i and a friend returned to Gigino's and...again, enjoyed our experience.

Food is good and ambience just beatiful...

I had been to Gigino at Wagner Park before, but not for awhile. It was a quiet Monday night which was perfect...for a not-so-quiet Birthday celebration with the "girls"

The staff was so friendly...the food was EXCELLENT (as I remembered it!). And who wouldn't like watching the ferries and Lady Liberty over your shoulder!..Loved it.

Delicious food, good service, but a bit noisy when the dining room is full. It's a bit pricey, but it's probably par considering the location.

My bf and I went there on a Saturday afternoon. The view was great, but the food was terrible. We made reservations (which we did not need as we were the ONLY people in the place.) I ordered the salmon plate and the salmon was just not good (not sure if undercooked or what- but was way too fishy with no seasoning). The place is overpriced and the food is not good. Service was good though! Will not be going back though.

Very quaint spot. Everything was great. The only small downfall is that the restrooms are outside of the building in the public park building. Very clean though so not really an issue.

Gigino surpassed our expectations! Not only were the views incredible, the food was AMAZING and our waiter, Jorge, was THE absolute best!! We were the last table to leave and Jorge never made us feel rushed. He truly treated us like family and we can't wait to go back and take advantage of the patio seating.

Wir hatten einen Tisch am Fenster mit toller Aussicht auf die Freiheitsstatue. Das Ambiente im Restaurant ist eher kühl, genau wie die Raumtemperatur. Der Service war zunächst unmotiviert & teilweise unfreundlich. Das Essen war okay, aber nichts besonderes. Das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis passt nicht zur Qualität des Essens. Hier zahlt man eher für die Lage/Aussicht. Zum Dessert hat meln Mann ein Tiramisu mit einer Kerze & einem kleinen Ständchen erhalten, da er Geburtstag hatte. Das war eine wirklich nette Überraschung.

冬場はテラス席が閉鎖されますが、
その分静かな雰囲気が味わえます。
もう何度も訪れていますが、
このお店のパスタは本当に絶品です。
