It was like stepping back into Italy with being greeted in Italian at the door. The staff made us feel very welcome. Excellent charcuterie board with a large selection. The home made pasta was very good, not to mention the panna cotta and tiramisu. I have already recommended to friends and colleagues. My only slight complaint would be that the tables are too close together and it makes it very difficult to get to the back seat. When the people arrived at the table next to us they knocked over a glass of water on our table due to that, which could have landed in our guest's lap did he not respond so quickly.

Lovely menu and we really enjoyed what we ordered. Great wine list as well. Staff all friendly and nice. Tables very close to one another - at one stage a diner beside us pushed her table almost right up to ours which felt a little claustrophobic but otherwise fab evening here and I will definitely be back!

Very poor gluten free options with no gluten free pasta ! In addition when ordering a starter meat and cheese board which the menu clearly stated was coeliac adaptable there was no gluten free bread or crackers available !! Overall I thought poor value for money with very small portions. Seating was cramped with tables squeezed together. I got to hear more of the conversation from the table beside me then from my dining companions. Disappointing experience from such an experienced restauranteur.

A lovely, friendly atmosphere once you walk in the door. Our waiter was very good indeed. But, something must have gone wrong in the kitchen! We waited for almost half an hour between finishing our starter and being served our main course. Then, as we were enjoying our coffee, we were very politely asked to finish as there were people waiting for our table. The delay in being served was not of our making!

I would highly recommend GiGi's - the one thing I would change is the music was a little too loud - it is a small venue and at times difficult to hear the conversation among the group between the noise and loud music.

The seating area is quite tight but you’re not on top of each other either, the atmosphere is great and the restaurant is very lively. The waiter had an extremely pleasant manner and there was some tasty specials on offer. We had the sharing antipasti which was amazing and I had the steak for main which had an exquisite charred flavour washed down with a delightful Montepulciano, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Presentation just beautiful, would I recommend it, yes provided you are not really hungry. Having two younger adults with me, they were bitterly disappointed on portion size - really small, bit on the expensive side for what had.

Buzzing little spot with a lovely selection of Italian wine and food. The menu is short but interesting although I will say with the dim lighting very very difficult to read. Perhaps if it was on yellow paper and slightly larger print it might be easier to read. Even the staff commented on how difficult it was. We enjoyed a wonderful bottle of red and some antipasti but I think we’d have ordered more if we could have read the menu.
What we did have was very tasty and the staff were very friendly but rather busy and at times a little too busy to remember who asked for what but I’m sure things will settle.
If you’re looking to relax over your meal be sure you wait until the last seating of the evening as you will otherwise probably be rushed out of your seat.

Overall I would definitely recommend GIGI’s and will definitely be returning.

A very enjoyable night out. Very buzzy place so quite noisy, small and intimate. Food is excellent, if a little on the pricey side. Delicious antipasti as well as pasta dishes, but there is something for those who don't want pasta - like my son who had the steak and said it was delicious. Lovely Montepluciano wine. Overall, can highly recommend it. You need to book well in advance.
