“Fair italian food at a pleasant terrace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Large and classic choice of pasta, pizza, focacce, beef fillets ... Good service but it can be long in this busy place. Main asset are the pleasant terrace and location if you live or work near the UN area.

“NINE WEST- NEW BRANCH”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

The ambiance of this restaurant is pleasant but sadly the quality of food and presentation varies from day to day. Very disappointing service with the waiters having minimal knowledge on the special menu or suggestions. The quality of the pasta sauces were appalling ; watery , lack of any salt or taste- pasta over cooked and broken. The garnishing wilted / dead leaves- and to make matters worse, served cold! One had to ask for pepper and parmesan cheese ! The pizza was cold by the time it got to the table! Just very over rated, over priced and lack of taste. Our group was disappointed.

“best pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

you can never complain about the food a and service.
For so many years i have been visiting the taste and the standard they have maintained is over excellent.The Gigiri place has a nice setting in the garden and service to excellence.
we tried as a group different vegetarian pastas and we couldn't come to a conclusion which was the best. all were properly cooked in different sauces.
Prices are comparitively fair but not cheap.
I would surely recommend this restaurant to anybody.
