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
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.
Gigino is always warm and welcoming, a bit of the Mediterranean in TriBeCa. It is a neighborhood restaurant, not fancy, just excellent food and service. The pasta dishes are amazing (Rigatonia Mamma MIA is my favorite) and fish and shrimp are perfectly prepared. We had a mixup with friends going to the wrong location, and the staff was lovely and gracious while we waited for them (we also sampled several delicious appetizers, including grilled calamari with creamy polenta). What a gem!
We had a nice quiet table in the back. Food was hot, fresh, and in reasonable size proportions. Table service could have been a little better. Waitress was more interested in chatting with a co-worker when we need things. Would still go back for the food- just would hope for better service.
Nice place. Good food. Mediocre service. My wife’s pesto ravioli came and were luke warm, she was ok with that but It took 10 minutes to get my margharita pizza after my wife’s plate came. Because we were dining al fresco, the ravioli dish was stone cold in a few minutes. I pointed out to the waiter that you never bring food for 1 customer and take 10 minutes to bring the rest. His answer was “sorry we are just very busy with deliveries” REALLY?
At the end I ordered a desert and when the bill came the waiter told me the desert was on the house. Which was nice but, the experience was not what I wanted to be on my date night with my wife’s.
Love, love the food and atmosphere of this place....it is consistently good....and their specials are exceptional. My favorite little dining spot! Comfortable and relaxing...no rushing...very enjoyable. Staff is EXCELLENT! Their attitude towards patrons and their knowledge of the food and wine....AND, they remember their customers!
We came for my father's 80th Birthday. We were a group of nine. Restaurant was very accommodating, even seating us a little early at our request. Service was good - didn't rush us. Courses were paced well. Food was very good. Overall, a very nice experience.
This was my 3rd time dining here. Met my brother and family for dinner. My brother is very picky, really liked the place. Both food and service were outstanding. Portions are good and entire staff was very warm and friendly. Definitely a great find, and will keep going back!
As always another delicious experience at Gigino's . A neighborhood place - yet we drive in from NJ- that serves fresh, quality, wonderful Italian food. You will find creative choices - seafood, pasta , meats- unlike many other places. Such a warm atmosphere . And the wait staff is top notch..attentive, helpful and so friendly. Also have a great wine list and yummy cocktails.
Billed as a quaint, neighborhood gem, yet doesn't measure up. Service made us feel like there were more tourists than locals by their flippant attitude towards all small details of the dinner. Food was something you'd expect in any city's busy tourist trap location. The decor was trying to be rustic, but upon inspection, one sees the place is in disrepair. By the great reviews I read, maybe it was my fault thinking this was one of those hole-in-the-wall Italian joints one dreams about in New York. Completely disappointing. If one is trying to find a great restaurant in a great area (TriBeCa), this isn't it. Feels like this could be in Battery Park or Times Square with the poor food quality and service that makes you feel "the server knows I'm not a local and doesn't care to make me happy".
