Italian
As one of the best kept secrets in New York City, owners Bob Giraldi and Phil Suarez along with executive chef Luigi Celentano, have taken great pride in bringing Italian cuisine to Battery Park City for nearly twenty years. Nestled between the Wagner Hotel and the Statue of Liberty, Gigino can be found just a few steps south of The Jewish Heritage Museum. Open year round, Gigino at Wagner Park is a great place for a romantic evening or family get together. Gigino at Wagner Park’s outside dining area offers a spectacular view of Lady Liberty and the New York Harbor in the summer.

It was perfect on a beautiful summer evening right by the water. The food was outstanding, the staff very helpful and it was great for kids too. Will be back!

Everything on the plate was tasty and satisfying, from the melon-prosciutto appetizer to the flakey, lightly seasoned monkfish (my spouse) and braised beef in wine sauce (me). Portions were plentiful. Strawberry-chocolate-zabaglione dessert was tops, the strawberries fresh and juicy. The fluorescent blue-pink-orange sunset over the harbor was an ever-changing light show. Excellent service throughout, attentive and with a smile. Minor complaint was the thumping disco track which, alas, is probably weekend standard fare, but intrudes on the magic of an evening by the water.

What an amazing outdoor option during this Covid period. The setting overlooking the Statue of Liberty is just beautiful and a nice break from “street seating.” The very fresh oysters, the crispy calamari, and the beet pasta were all nicely presented and absolutely delicious. To top it off, we could not have had better or nicer service. I am looking forward to another meal there soon.

It’s was awesome because it was the best Calamari, Salmon, Oysters, and Pasta I ever had. On top of all this boom! Beautiful view by the waters with lady liberty standing strong.

Gigino at Wagner Park has a very nice patio with a roof, along with shades that block the sun from shining directly in, while still allowing a view of the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor.

Food was shameful, drinks were over sweetened and poorly made. Service was sloppy and lazy. What a shame for a restaurant that is better setup for outdoor dining than most.

Staff had opened the shade to let the light into the dining area. And my date had the light shine in her eyes. I asked if they could draw the blinds and they wouldn’t.

It was 90 degrees out but Gigino was like sitting in the trade winds.
Staff were great with masks and tables were socially distanced .
The oysters were very fresh and the salmon was delish.

We really enjoyed our time at Gigino's, mostly due to the stunning views and some really tasty food and drinks! The cocktail "Hidden Garden" was amazing. However, their servers were clearly really understaffed and were running around the whole time. They still did a great job for what they could do, but they were just too busy to provide good service. We literally waited 20 minutes to be served a cocktail and a glass of wine. Also, the tables should have been spaced more apart. Definitely not 6 feet between all of them. We were quite close to our neighbors.

The food, the service, the open air, the view--Gigino's is the best restaurant in NYC for a delicious and always enjoyable meal during this lousy time of pandemic. We had the pear and arugula salad to start with lovely wine and my daughter had the shrimp dish with the pasta that looks like calamari (calamarana? something like that) and I had the shrimp in light cream with mushrooms and prosciutto--both decadent and fantastic-but not heavy. Gigino's is perfect!

This was the FIRST restaurant I went to since restaurants were allowed to reopen for outdoor dining. You cannot possibly find a better outdoor setting than Gigino's at Wagner Park! Beautiful view of the harbor and Statue of Liberty. It was a delightful evening and the food is AMAZING, and the staff was welcoming and friendly. If you want a great evening outdoors in summer, THIS IS THE PLACE!

This was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. The staff were wonderful and extremely responsive. And, nothing can beat the view of the harbor and the Statue of Liberty. We were a total of 7 people and each of us said we'd be happy to go back again. A real gem!

we were there a few years ago and it was great but now it is not taken care of, it should be renovated, plastic table cloths, the food was so so... I will not go there again and it is a pity because the location is unique they should make it an attractive place.

It was early on a cold and windy night so I had the place to myself for most of my dinner. The bartender and waiter were both friendly and welcoming. I had spinach salad and a pasta dish from the fro the $33 menu. They were both excellent. Since I live nearby I am sure I will return.

What we wanted, a quiet table with a view from my parents anniversary what we got :a quiet table with no view at a restaurant known mainly for the view. The bathroom was certainly not up to the food pricing level and we were very disappointed to be seated in a room without the view because even though I asked ahead of time for a quiet table w THE VIEW they sat us next to a giant party full of kids in the main room with the view and had to move
