Fantastic menu. Between the two of us we got 2 starters, 2 entrees and 1 dessert. Every dish was superb. The tables are close to each other and it can get a little loud but other than the noise I have nothing but good things to say about this place. A little taste of Italy in Dublin.

This is a super and authentic Italian run by a very experienced team. Excellent food, service, and wine list of gems if you like Italian wine. Only downside is the noise.

We had a super night at GiGi. It was great fun for a large group. The food was fantastic, particularly the flank steak special and the Dublin bay prawn linguine - excellent value also

Gorgeous, really tasty true Italian food. Service was good but when it started to get busy you could see the staff was struggling slightly. However I would recommend and go back again.

Gigi is a real find. The food is spectacular with the mozzarella a particular stand out. Service is excellent (ask for recommendations) and there are interesting specials. Ignore people who carp about a small menu. It’s a small restaurant so couldn’t sustain a large menu of this quality. All around this restaurant deserves to do well.

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.
