I have been a regular customer of Gigi's for several years. I feel like a member of Gigi's family. Gigi, mama and their sons run a very family oriented restaurant with a wonderful menu. From the pizza with fresh toppings. My favorite is eggplant, and fresh sliced tomatos and spinach. I have had several of the entrees. Gigi's special is the home made lasagna. Once you try it you will definitely go back to Gigi's again. My favorite entree is Chicken Marsala. mama makes the best sauce and the chicken is so very tender. If you like calmari, you have to taste Gigi's.

A very small, family run, casual restaurant in a small strip mall in Jensen Beach. They do not take reservations or credit cards so be prepared to wait for a table and take cash.
All food is prepared to order so be it takes a little time for the entree to be served, but well worth the wait. The Pasta with Shrimp, Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions and Meat Ravioli are all outstanding. I told the waiter that I was still trying to duplicate one of their dishes and he replied, "You never will". I am sure he was correct.

Gigi's was an unexpected delight. Though the service was a little on the slow side, the continuous string of classioc oldies made the wait more tolerable and the food was as good if not better than anything I've ever had in Boston's northend. The food was delicious and the portions bordering on enormous with sufficient leftovers for another meal in the case of my wife and son. A small establishment with a limited number of tables, the place was busy throughout or visit on a Sunday evening. The waitstaff, though young, was cordial and professional. Overall it was an enjoyable experience and one we are sure to repeat though perhaps when we are not quite as famished as we happened to be that night then even the time it took for the meals to come out would not have mattered.

The best Italian Rest Ive ever eaten at. Better than Caraba's and Olive Garden. My baby girl asks at least once a week "Can we PLEASE go to Gigi's? Great service, great food and very family oriented. What more can you ask?

Gigi's is a great find. From their homemade (and delicious) hot and garlicky rolls, to their wonderful entrees, you will leave feeling you've been transported to Italy somehow. Those rolls are reason enough to visit...they're that good!

My parents live in the area and have been coming for over 20 years and whenever ANYONE visits them, Gigi's is a must-stop for sure! Authentic, delicious food, generous portions, good service, and the warmth and feel of a family owned and runned operation.

The setting is pleasant and small, so be prepared for a wait. Their take-out business is phenomenol, a constant stream of people which only means that the locals love this place too!

Located in an easy-to-miss little strip ...it's worth your time to check this place out. The homemade tiramisu is divine
