Gigi’s Cucina is a family-run, authentic yet contemporary Italian restaurant situated in Sheffield just a stones throw from Ecclesall Road with abundant parking. Our philosophy is to be relaxed with a touch of sophistication. Gigi’s is a place to meet friends for dinner, have business lunches or for special occasions.

Our promise is the same whatever the occasion: quality, delicious affordable Italian food. We serve well-known classic and original Italian dishes with a special emphasis on seasonal dishes. We happily cater for a wide variety of dietary requirements and dietary lifestyle choices. The exclusively Italian wine list has something for every budget with a focus on value and quality. We carefully select all of our wine from small independent wineries.

The kitchen is open so you can witness the chefs cooking in real time and chat with the chef (when he isn’t too busy!). When the opportunity arises Gigi will not let his customers leave without saying good

Wonderfully delicious freshly prepared quality food and great service from our waitress. Was really nice to be able to see into the kitchen. It was a shame we could hear two different songs playing while we were eating - opera mixed with Bee Gees and Boney M (possibly coming from the kitchen) but it didn't detract from a lovely meal too much. We will definitely return. Sally

It was our first dining experience here. Although the venue is lovely and relaxing and the staff are friendly and attentive, the food experience is mixed.
Firstly I was served a flat Aperol Spritz, which when I sent it back, it was oddly checked by the bar manager to make sure it was so.
The complementary bread and oil and starters were lovely. I had the calamari which I would say was one of the best I have had.
The mains however were disappointing. I ordered the halibut, not the cheapest of fish. When it came it was sloppy and swimming in a brown tasteless water. The plaice was very fishy and unseasoned. The pasta was ok but not outstanding as we expected. I wouldn’t be in a rush to go back personally which is such as shame.

Bland and unexciting, nothing to excite. Been before and never been that impressed but it’s always been very busy. However on this occasion it was quite quiet. I would suggest they need to up their game

We went for Father’s Day, and on first impression the setting and decor was good. Service was quick and friendly, but the food was very disappointing. pizzas were stodgy and burnt, pasta was tasteless,and garlic bread was over cooked...overall we were very disappointed

Birthday meal for 2.

Very disappointed in my experience at Gigi’s. We ordered olives and cheesy garlic bread for starter, the base of the garlic bread was burnt and really dry. It tasted like something from a takeaway restaurant if I'm totally honest. I asked for the lamb shank for my main but was advised there was none in so I opted to get the rib-eye steak. This was ok, I wasn’t blown away, however the waiter got my partners order wrong and brought out the wrong dish. She then had to wait around 10 minutes or so for her dish to be re-made. As a result I ate alone, and then she ate alone.

Overall, really poor experience. We left disappointed. The wine and coffee was good.

Such a lovely looking restaurant but let down by the tiny, over-priced portions, served luke warm. This was our fourth visit and each time we’ve said ‘never again’ - but this time, really never again, sorry.

Our third visit to Gigi's and the best yet. We took some friend who were visiting us from London and they loved it too. Although it was a quiet Sunday night there was a comfortable and cosy atmosphere. We were very well looked after by the staff, particularly the waiter who I think was called Roberto. He helped with menu choices and recommended a Sicilian fter dinner drink - really enhanced our experience. Now we are looking for and excuse to return agin. Thank you.

Shown to table right away and asked if we wanted drinks. Ordered starters and main course - all absolutely lovely!!. Tagliatelle was slightly Al dente, just as it should be, and my Milanese with spaghetti was enormous and very tasty. My husband is coeliac, and was catered for with no fuss. Fantastic service throughout and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Will definitely recommend and return.

We have been to Gigi’s a few times and always had a great night but unfortunately the food was dreadful this time. The asparagus starter from the specials was so over cooked it was stringy the plate had water on and then there was just some grated cheese over it. The red snapper main was so bland and full of bones. Such a disappointing meal. The atmosphere was great but everything else was very poor.

Lovely venue. Attentive and pleasant waiter. Starters were great. Pizzas were average. Pasta looked far better. Huge portions! Puddings good, though tiramisu was somewhat dumped onto plates! Limited ice cream choice. They very kindly sang happy birthday to my daughter!

Gigi’s had a lovely atmosphere and was reasonably priced but without a doubt it was the BLANDEST meal I’ve ever had. We ordered the vegetarian pasta with artichokes etc - it was essentially plain, undercooked pasta with plain vegetables. The Italian sausage pizza was tasteless too. It’s such a shame that the food let the atmosphere, staff etc down

We had high expectations given that we had been recommended however we didn't find it friendly,the service felt rushed. We just felt as if the aim was to get us fed & out as quickly as possible,not relaxing. Whilst some of the food was good my own choices were not. The mushroom starter was so basic & very small compared to my daughter's calamari,which was actually very nice & a good portion. Again my daughter & husband enjoyed their mains whilst I was disappointed with the seafood linguine,which felt very greasy & oily and lacked the quantity of seafood my husband's similar dish contained. We didn't bother with coffee or deserts & left underwhelmed.

Very disappointed. Unfortunately pork was served although it was patently totally under cooked and inedible. They did offer an alternative but when the others in the party were half way through a meal it was not really applicable plus lost confidence as if they thought the pork was acceptable to serve although it was verging on raw then wasn’t the

We had a lovely family meal to celebrate a birthday. Two adults, two kids, Mums birthday. I had casually mentioned on the booking form that it was a birthday celebration. We had a great meal, authentic Italian food. Really nice. It was a quiet evening, being a Sunday. We chose some deserts, and after serving my young son with his huge dish of profiteroles, we had a lovely surprise. The lady who had been serving our table came over with a special profiterole with a candle, singing happy birthday! We all joined in. Such a lovely gesture!
And as we left, the same lady asked us to wait a second, dashed over to the other side of the beautiful restaurant, and came back with a box of Italian cakes as a gift. Brilliant service.

The restaurant is such a cosy, atmospheric place. Great music playing, the vibe is lovely. Great decor too. I really recommend this lovely place.

Thanks for such a lovely evening!

After changing the time of our booking to accommodate the restaurant we did have to wait about 10 minutes before being seated. We were given a free bottle of wine [of our choosing] for agreeing to change the booking which was a nice gesture. My risotto was a bit bland and didn’t look very appealing. It resembled scrambled egg. I would not choose it again. My husband had tagliatelle which he said was superb. Mum had sirloin steak. She had requested medium but it was more medium rare. She did ask for it to be cooked some more but unfortunately it was then a little tough. The staff were very apologetic & did offer her something else. The vegetables were plenty and hot. Cheesecake and cheese board for dessert were very nice.
Overall, a pleasant evening was had with a nice atmosphere.

I, with my family, had an evening meal. We totally enjoyed the meal, the ambience, and good rapport with the staff. The head waiter explained the dishes in detail, including the specials for the evening. The wine was extremely good quality. Altogether, we had a most enjoyable evening, and will be revisiting again.

We made a last minute booking on Saturday night after a booking mess up with another local eating place.
We were pleasantly greeted on arrival by the owner, a Lovely restaurant with great food and very attentive service, the wine is not overpriced & extremely top quality.
Will definitely return.
Don’t be put off by the bad report earlier in these reviews .
