About Gigino Trattoria
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 Trattoria Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good, however the service was not. Our meals were served at different times so one of us was eating when the other was not. There was no apology for this. Additionally we were seated near the bathroom. This table should not exist. Every time someone went to use the bathroom, they knocked into my chair.
We had a fantastic meal and a wonderful time, at Gigino Trattoria, on Tuesday night.
Our meal included Fusilli pescatore-you could actually taste the ocean. The fusili had a true homemade taste, which brought me back to my Grandmother's kitchen table
Ziti pulcinella-this dish brings to mind the famous Forcella Street, in Naples, Italy, where people cooked on skillets, in the Street. With simple ingredients, Chef Gigi brought to life the exact flavor, of this traditional dish. We could almost hear the playful laughter of Pulcinella, himself.
Cold antipasto with homemade Buratta and sopressata & Italian delicacies.
Tutti andiamo mangiare da Gigino!
( Let's all go and eat at Gigino Trattoria!)
Things started off poorly. I mistakenly made the reservation for the FOLLOWING Saturday eve. After a minute or two of confusion, the manager found us a seat at the bar, and 10 minutes later, a table. I greatly appreciate him accommodating us. The food was great as was the service. I will be back. Perfect example of how a manager can win (or lose) the restaurant clientele. Nice job!
Great place. Only issue is that the space is tight so they play with the tables and tell you the best ones are reserved. We are regulars at this place and can be annoying that they tell you a large table next to you or one of the ones in the second floor area are reserved and you realize that nobody seated there the entire night.
Other than that food is great, waiters are very friendly and give the place a flavor of been in Italy
We tried this restaurant when went on a date night with hubby. Overall, it was great. Quite packed but the noise level is very low. We were able to carry on a conversation comfortably. The antipasto selection is great. We tried the fried calamari, spicy mussels and prosciutto e mozzarella were very well done. We shared a main; pollo scarpariello. It was well cooked. The staff are friendly and the service was great. The wine list is good; lots of options. There’s street parking but tough to find a spot.
Second time here for New years Eve - decorated in a festive way - nice and warm being 10 degrees outside - service very good and friendly and not rushing - food was delicious - great vegetable soup and creamy barrata with Eggplant - would definitely go back
The pizza here was good but 2 courses and 2 glasses of wine came to almost $120 which really ridiculous for pizza and calamari that was over cooked and chewy. Forgot part of the order too and no apology which meant a wait. It would have been a great find if better value as the pizza was good.
What a fantastic place!! We dined here for our Christmas Day lunch, and were so happy with everything! Our waitress of Eastern Europe origins (I think) was great, the food was amazing and ambience was Christmassy, homely and very welcoming!
If we lived in NYC, we would be regular diners.
Though we are two, we request a middle size table because we use to order variety of plates and drinks. But, the receptionist rejected our petition and with bad aptitude assigned a little table... Consequently our dinner was terrible uncomfortable. Besides the food is so expensive without quality for it.
