The new Gigi's is great being italian myself I know what I'm talking about. The old one on 5th ave is good too but not as the new one and it is much more expensive.

Actually, Da GiGi's is at AV. 10 and calle 20. This is the original owner. I started this post almost 3 years ago. Things change in 3 years here.

We ate at GG5s last night on 5th and 30somethingth. Excellent appetizers (tuna tartar) and pastas! I think this is the other brothers restaurant when they split and left their original location on Constituentes.

You ate at G5G

Original owner and (ex)partners split. All were involved at the AV. 5 between calle 32 & 34 location.

Original owner has been at AV.10 and calle 20 for awhile now with Da GiGi.

Great Tuna Steak!

I had one of the best tuna steaks ever at this place! Beautifully done and encrusted with almonds! Truly amazing! Not sure anyone will replace Ileana's but we welcome all of the tender blessings from the sky!

Haven't tried the sky tuna, but their pastas have been pretty good, the music was Italian and not too loud, and the service attentive. Tiramisu was quite yummy.
