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!

Beautiful rustic environment. Delicious Italian with very pleasant attentive service. Good selection for both meat & non meat eaters. Great specials in addition to the regular menu. Can’t wait to sit outside on a warm night

Great neighborhood spot. Lots of families early on then changes to lore groups and couples. They have a few ‘outdoor’ tables which are good if you want to people watch the sidewalk.

Great selection of pizza - both of us had (mine was pizza Bianca) and really enjoyed. Will definitely be back.

I used to live in the neighborhood years ago and Gigino's was always a favorite. I was very pleased to note that it hasn't lost any of its charm and quality. It may take several more years, but I'll be back.

Came for Mother’s Day. Food was okay. Not bad, not great. I’m a tame eater and don’t like anything spicy. They do. Keep that in mind when ordering. Staff was lovely although the hostess was a bit standoff-ish. If I was in the neighborhood, I’d go again but wouldn’t make a special trip.

Service was very slow. My co-workers all got their food and I had to wait 15 minutes for mine. The waitress never came to tell us what the delay was or even to check on us. I was there during my lunch break and it was very stressful as I had to return to work. I frequently go to Gigino's as it's one of my favorite restaurants, but this last experience wasn't good.

Great meal at Gigino's. I have eaten there often and it is consistently very good. The tortellini was delicious and my friend loved the lemon chicken. Service was good. Desserts were wonderful, especially the Italian cheesecake.

Lackluster hostess at the check-in station. Slow service. Ordered quinoa salad that came with barely any quinoa but too much chicken. Should have been called chicken salad with quinoa. The quinoa in it was soggy and overcooked. Entrees arrived almost 15 minutes after we were done with apps/salad. Farfalle was soggy and overcooked and sauce was overspiced. Had the pasta special which tasted like a plate of salt with a side of pasta in a sticky cheese sauce. Waiter never came by to check if we were satisfied with the food. Best part of the meal was the bread basket and prosciutto and mozzarella-probably because no cooking was required. I have been to Gigino’s many times in the past, but not recently. Obviously under new management and cook staff. I won’t be frequenting this restaurant or recommending to anyone again.

The food was exceptionally good. We (7 altogether) went to lunch to celebrate a colleagues anniversary. The restaurant is warm and inviting. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. The staff went out of their way t make the luncheon a special event and even surprised the honoree with a special dessert. I would very much recommend this restaurant.

This is our neighborhood staple and it never disappoints. It has been around for a long time and even featured in a movie (Dinner Rush), so they know what they are doing and they do it really well.

Friday was busy and so the service was a bit hectic. Nothing really to complain about. It’s a good neighborhood restaurant where you will be satisfied but not a five star establishment. Food quality good and well as the food.

The food was not as good as last time either was the service. We were put all the way at the top on the right and it was freezing. Then they turned the mitzubitzi heater on and we were sweating. Then they turned it off and we were freezing.

We got the "corner" table...right next to the server station. Real estate is at an absolute premium here, and learned my lesson after requesting the corner seat and getting this. I mean, it was a whole deal to get out of our chair at the end of the meal being that we were surrounded by the server station, a wall, and two tables on the other two sides. Otherwise the food was great and the service was phenomenal.

We have been going to Gigino’s ever since it opened in the 90’s. It has consistently excellent, savory food no matter the choice. We were not disappointed on our latest visit with a beef shoulder and large ravioli special entrees as well as salmon tartare appetizer. Yummy.
While the restaurant has made some alterations to the space and decor over the past few years, it’s time for a makeover. It’s gotten a little worn around the edges.
