“Not like years past...”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Having had superlative food here, I had high expectations (again) with no cause to think they would not be met. However, I was disappointed beginning with my drink. Not only was the service slow (granted, it was kind of busy) but the food was cooked using average-quality ingredients, and my dishes lacked any flavor. Bummer. Another one bites the dust.

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We had heard good things about Gigi's but our meal exceeded expectations. Salads and appetizers were delicious. The arugula salad is exceptional!. Our entrees were wonderful. The swordfish belly dish was one of the best seafood dishes I've ever eaten. The wine list is not extensive, but there is a good selection at fair mark-up. Quite a few Italian wines are available.

Gigi's also offers pizza and small dishes for grazing tourists.
We did not find the prices to be extreme considering the quality of the food.

“Good Italian in Rheinbeck”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

My family wanted to eat in Rheinbeck; a friend had recommended Gigi Trattoria.
As other reviews have noted, prices are high ($150 for 3 people).
But, the pasta was all homemade and delicious.
The arugula salad is to die for; literally the best I have ever had.
And, everyone at Gigi's was having a wonderful time!
The only major problems -- no reservations(!) and parking can be a problem.

“More for the visitor”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Each time I dined there, I left hungry and somewhat broke. The "skizza's" are the flattest pizza's I have ever had. But the prices match regular pizzas. And to add to it? Prepare to break your piggy bank.
