Gigino Trattoria opened its doors in August of 1994. The owners, Bob Giraldi and Phil Suarez, along with executive chef Luigi Celentano, have kept Gigino flourishing in the ever-changing Tribeca neighborhood. Chef Celentano creates both the menu and wine list, with daily specials of seasonally fresh seafood, game and vegetables. Gigino prides itself on the fact that all their dishes are prepared to order and almost all their pastas and breads are house-made. Fresh fish specials are featured on the “specials blackboard” daily, and it’s safe to say they also have the best pizza in Tribeca! Dining at Gigino Trattoria is a pleasure every time!

Gigino's Trattoria on Greenwich doesn't have the view of Gigino's in Wagner Park. The food at both is what I consider honest and delicious. But Trattoria has a wonderful peaceful ambiance on a Thursday evening.

It is a great place to stop in for a bite with friends. Our party enjoyed the wine and the service was excellent. The food was not too bad (sorry this coming from a tough NYC Italian-food lover). Still I would definitely go back there!

We are in NYC for our wedding anniversary as well as then20th year commemoration of 9/11. I found the restaurant on Open Table with almost all rave reviews.
Tonight our service was wonderful, the food was fantastic, and the fact that they actually read the Open Table “special occasion” notations. Our dessert plate came out with Happy Anniversary written on it.
Sadly, during these times, we were not asked for our vaccine card as stated in all online info, nor were all staff wearing masks.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for their wonderful food and service.

I have been coming here for over 20 years. This most recent meal was another in a long line of fantastic experiences. We have never had a bad meal here - never. Staff was careful and safe during these pandemic conditions. Looking forward to many more years dining here. Thank you Gigino!

Some recommendations (gleaned over many meals): the Pollo Limone, the Pollo Scarpariello, the Tartufata Pizza (fantastic), and when they have it, the Fegatini (chicken livers appetizer).

I love the rustic decor and feel of the interior, really nice ambiance for a date night. The food was all very good, and a great cocktail I had called the pineapple mule I believe. Service was friendly, professional, and we got the food in the exact order we asked for it (we were trying several dishes, sharing them and food came out pretty quickly.) My girlfriend is a vegetarian and we had a delicious all veg meal. They had a great selection of delicious vegetarian options. I would absolutely go back to try some of the other delicious sounding selections on their menu.

For more than a decade Gigino's has been our "go to" restaurant for a quality meal in low key but stylish surroundings. Great location also for larger family dinners.

The inside of the restaurant reminded me of Italy! The food was incredible and service was on top of things with water and extra drinks. Place to go and enjoy a casual, delicious and perfect evening. Did I mention desert? Affogato is the way to go!

The food was awful. I ordered the fish stew special - which I was told had monkfish, shellfish, squid etc.
The fish was not monkfish - it was a blubbery fish which had been hacked into pieces including bones and put into the stew. Totally inedible- Unable to eat the dish. No offer to remove from the check / no complimentary desert or drink. No manager came to speak. Awful

We always find a great meal at Gignio. IT was a very hot evening, and their AC was not fully working, so we sat outside for dinner. Wait staff did not go a good job of refilling water glasses. Other than that, service was ok. Food is always good.

Service was rushed. I had asked for mustard for the sausage meal I ordered. I got three packets of mustard. Said we would order desert and the check was brought. Water glass was rarely filled up. The return was not bust. I was extremely disappointed.

Extra special treatment at our fav spot for our daughter's 25th Birthday! Excellent food - fried calamari, eggplant and the special burrata as appetizers. 3 delicious pastas and a pizza rounded out our delicious meal as well as a candle topped dessert! Never a disappointment.

The service people were very nice, very sweet. But the food was terrible for the price , she had a salad with grilled chicken and I had the breaded chicken breast, it was cold and not very well cooked inside. I had a vodka tonic and she had glass of wine. The check was $168 for this terrible, horrible, chicken. Though I still left a $25 dollar tip (because I respect waiters) I wouldn't recommend this place to my enemies.

This has always been our go-to neighborhood restaurant. However during COVID we only did take out. We were celebrating a special anniversary and just had to go back to my favorite restaurant. It was amazing!!! The mussels were delicious as was the eggplant appetizer. The white pizza was devine. And the shrimp main course was cooked to perfection. Our waiter, Dennis, was so attentive and charming. We are so glad to have Gignio in our Tribeca neighborhood and will be taking many friends there in the near future.
