    I love places that punch above their weight. GiGi’s has loads of character with simple but great food. It’s not a place for lingering as they turn tables over quickly but it’s a brilliant place for a meal before a night out, or even an early family meal like we had. Service was personal and friendly- will be back soon.

    Luckily got a last minute booking. Staff are plentiful for a small restaurant and welcoming. Food is very well priced at c€20-22 for main courses. Good options without too many choices - a good balance. Food was very good - Parmigiana Melanzane was excellent.

    We were seated and ignored by every server that walked by us (both the tables on either side of us were attended to) and it took about 15 minutes to be given a menu (after we had to flag down a server and ask for one). Once we were able to have a server recognise us, the service from that point was friendly and attentive. The group next to us was basically screaming and the restaurant decided to put on music (I think they meant to drown them out but it just added to the overall noise level and left both my partner and myself overstimulated). The food itself was relatively bland (the fried/baked eggplant and arancini apps) up until the cannelloni, which was over seasoned with garlic salt. My partner had the ragu pasta and he did enjoy it and said it was seasoned well. Overall, the price was not matching to the quality/taste of the food or the service. The inside of the restaurant was quite nice and had a very cute ambiance but, for us, the lack of flavour and the overly loud guests tainted the experience.

    I’ve been a few Italian restaurants in Dublin and Im Italy and this is one of the best that I visited so far. Worth every penny spent there. The panna cotta at the end reminded me of one that I had in Bologna that was the best I had in my life. So well done Gigi

    We ordered two different pasta dishes which were so salty they were inedible, the waiter said he would get them redone less salty but the replacements were almost as salty and we could not eat all of it. Our bill was presented although we had not requested it (our reservation was 17.45 and the bill was paid at 19.10), I feel they just want you in and out. The waiter was unable to explain what change was made to our food. For almost 100 euro it was very dissappointing.

    GiGi once again proved a real gem in Ranelagh. Highly recommend. Was a little noisy at first and the table for three was really a table for two so a little squashed but this did not affect the enjoyment and the food was amazing.

    A quick pit stop en route to the Garth Brooks concert & found GiGi - really didn’t want to leave so soon! Service from the initial greeting to the final goodbye was first class, as was the food. We will definitely be back 😊

    Recommended by the receptionist at the Hilton hotel and what a gem. Roberto is a fantastic host and all the staff are so attentive and the food…wow. Really outstanding!! You have to book in advance as it’s only a few tables and I guess from the quality of food and service, it’s always busy!!

    Very disappointing to be handed the bill at 8.00pm and told the table was needed after only 1.5 hours and still 2 glasses of wine to finish - had assumed 2 hours allocated. Rethink going back sadly

    Best Italian restaurant in Dublin. From the freshly cut Parma Ham to the homemade pasta, it's all really well done, and served by friendly staff who know the menu really well. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
