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!

The food, service, and atmosphere were fantastic. We had everything from appetizers to salads, entrees, dessert and drinks. All the food was fresh and enjoyable. The staff as friendly and attentive throughout the meal. We’ll be back anytime we return to NYC.

I came here for lunch with my mom and I was incredibly happy with the service. Our server, Dennis, was very attentive and made helpful suggestions on the menu. I will definitely go back!

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.

As always Gigino’s was exceptional. Even during these difficult CoVid times, their food and their service has not lost a step! We dined inside and felt they did an excellent job with the spacing of the tables. They also have set up very nice, shielded from the elements outside dining. Gigino’s continues to wow us and we will continue to support them!!

Wait staff was superb. Food was perfectly delicious. At our request they moved us to a table that opened up after we had been seated at our original table already. They did so gladly. Limoncello on the house at the end of our meal.
Only one negative... the hostess did not engage us at all. As the hostess she should be warm and welcoming. Didn’t seem happy to be there.
