Astoundingly Overrated Italian Food in Tribeca

I am so disappointed after wasting my time and money on this much hyped restaurant. I had high hopes after noting a 26 rating for food in zagat's. Those hopes were swiftly dashed by our heavily Spanish accented captain. First, we ordered an expensive Barolo from the wine list. The captain (there was no sommelier) brought a decanter but proceeded to pour the wine directly into our glasses without offering the tr... view more

Extremely Pretentious

I had a very disappointing experience at this restaurant. To begin, the waiter asked if we wanted bubbly or still water. We said still, assuming that it would be nyc water. They brought us a bottle of water which we drank. When they brought us a second bottle, we said that we wanted plain water. We were never given the choice of plain nyc water, so we assumed that the still water was regular water.The waiter sa... view more

The best Italian restaurant in NYC

I picked Il Gigio for a 50th birthday party for my wife and her family who flew in from California. This place is fantastic. Instead of the usual ""this is what is on the menu, take it or leave it"", Ivo, the leader of the pack, told us he could basically put anything together we wanted. And so he did. Utterly phenomenal. The food was outstanding, the service even better. They start serving you as soon as you sit dow... view more

simply the most amazing italian food i've ever had

i did not expect anything from this place, even though i was told it was incredible. from the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out the door ... the staff... the food... lamb chops are heavenly, prosciutto with melon melts in your mouth, cheesecake is perfect. stop reading. start reserving. don't eat all day. come hungry. if you can limit yourself, expect to spend about $200.

Excellent Food, Superior Service

This place serves really fantastic, standard Italian dishes. The antipasto that is set on the table in the minutes before even getting the menus is a very nice touch. The service is outstanding, yet in no way overbearing. The ambience isn't the greatest in the city, and it's pretty loud, but that seems almost irrelevant given the quality of everything else. We will be returning.

It's reputation is right on the Money- Excellent!

I have heard about this place for many years. I finally had the opportunity to eat here last night. I think I was afraid that after you here so many wonderful things about a place, you are afraid it cannot hold up to it. We had excellent service and we were showered with very unique, fresh and delicious starters (even before our appy). Then we ate the Antipasto for two which was also excellent. I ordered the B... view more

terrible and over-priced

this one of the worst dining experiences I have had in NYC. we were rushed through our meal, which was very average and the check was outrageous ---$32 for a side of veggies!!! will never go back or recommend - total rip-off

great find

My boyfriend and I went here for Valentines day last weekend - and it was perfect! In addition to fantastic food and about 4 complimentary appetizers, the waitstaff was wonderful. They brought every woman a rose, and set us chocolate hearts with the check. I loved the atmosphere, and the fact that the staff went that extra step to make valentines day special. This is a great place and we can't wait to go back. T... view more

God I love this place!

This is far and away my favorite restaurant in NYC! Great service and unbelievable food. The other reviews who rated the food medicore are insane. Go w/ whatever the Maitre'D reccomends. One thing to note definitley bring the expense account.

Great food but waiters with attitude

The food is always excellent, especially the pasta starters cooked table-side. The rack of lamb is superior to all of the main courses. Why do some waiters believe they have something to feel superior about? God only knows... Great place for a business dinner.
