Description: As one of the best kept secrets in New York City, Gigino at Wagner Park offers a spectacular view of Lady Liberty and the New York Harbor. 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 over 10 years. Nestled between the Ritz Carlton 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.

We had dinner at Gigino's outside terrace on a fine summer evening. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. The food was excellent, prices OK and the view nothing less than fantastic. A real experience!

“Fine Food, Fantastic View”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Set on the edge of Wagner Park, Gigino's looks out to the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan. The Italian cuisine is mouth-watering and moderately priced for New York City. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful. We had an infant with us in a stroller, so we sat on the edge adjacent to the park. When the baby fussed, we were able to walk away from the table, so his parents and the rest of the diners could eat the meal without interruption. We will return to Gigino in October when it is time to visit the grandson again!

“Fantastic Liberty View”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

What a great place to dine al fresco! The stark white tables and chairs did not distract from the beautiful view of the water and Miss Liberty. The service was friendly, attentive, and accommodating. They were nice to the children (ages 7 & 9) and had many menu choices for smaller appetites. The outdoor space includes a grassy area that separates one from the crowds wandering around Battery Park. We especially enjoyed the Grilled Octopus as well as a many appetizers that completed our meal. A must to eat at in the area ~ great for locals as well as tourists.

“It is all about the view”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Restaurants with a view often fail to deliver..after all if all fails the view is amazing what else do u need? Didn't Samantha say that about gorgeous men and sex in Sex in the City. Great menu, amazing view of the Stature of Liberty but the food just failed to deliver. So instead bring your own sushi and have a picnic in the Battery Park. You will have the same experience. Great location and yes it is all about the view.

“Great View with Mediocre Food”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Absolutely gorgeous view! Lovely ambiance! This is the perfect destination for a warm sunny afternoon. But be sure to go for the setting, not the food or the service. While the mango cocktail, shrimp portofino, and bread pudding were nice, they were not outstanding. And unfortunately, the table service was rather slow and unorganized.
