Gigino at Wagner Park’s unheated outside dining area offers a spectacular view of Lady Liberty and the New York Harbor in the summer, yet also has a small indoor dining area in winter. Currently, the outdoor area is covered but not heated and will reopen on March 8th, 2021.
Nestled between the Wagner Hotel and the Statue of Liberty, Gigino can be found just a few steps south of The Museum of Jewish Heritage. Owner 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 twenty years.

We loved our table, but the service was not great. Our food took forever to come, we had to ask various times for break, just not up to the usual standards.

One of out favorite restaurants for outdoor dining. Excellent views of Upper New York Bay, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and Jersey City. One can also see the Staten Island Ferry as well the ferries to the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island.

And, by the way, the food is great!

There were multiple large parties occurring at the restaurant. That would be totally fine, except that as a party of 2 we were completely ignored. We sat for more than 10 minutes before being offered even a glass of water. This was no fault of our waiter who was stretched far too thin. The food was good! But that was overshadowed by the lack of service.
We had a wonderful time here 2 years ago and had come back to celebrate our anniversary - but this experience really missed the mark.

They Let us make a reservation for 845 then raced us through our food. Food was amazingly tasty but a super annoying experience. Don’t take 845 reservations at a $100 per person restaurant if you’re going to push people out at 930

Ambiance, food and service (Eduardo) were wonderful. Special bonus is the music playlist selected by the Manager. One of the only restaurants we have found where music enhances the dining experience rather than detracts.

One of the best water-view restaurants in downtown NYC. The outdoor seating area is between the restaurant and a small green lawn that looks out over the Hudson River with views of the Statue of Liberty and a great sunset view. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent and fresh, and the wine list is fantastic. Our party of 4 was treated to a free Italian cheesecake at the end of the meal. Have been here many times and have never been disappointed. I've only ever sat outside, too. Can't wait to go back!

Love this restaurant! I frequent both their locations, but since I'm sticking to outside dining right now, this location is best. You have a wonderful view of the Statue of Liberty and a sunset (if there for dinner). The service and food are always amazing.

Awesome views, yummy food, and excellent service. It was a bit cold though so heaters for night time would have been nice and it was a bit pricy as well.
