Gigi Italian Bistro


Italian grandmothers, also known as gigis, know Italian comfort food (at least the good ones), and Chef Craig Wilson honors his mother and wife with a small red and white restaurant covered in family photos. Expect everything saucy, cheesy, and warm. There won't be many surprises on the menu, which delivers on classic, seafood-sprinkled antipasti and expected pizzas and pastas. A bit of customization comes into play when you can choose to top your fish or meat plates with your choice of sauces, both long (heavy gravy or marinara) and short (pan sauces). In true Philly form, the place is BYOB. An economical kid’s menu (penne with butter, little one?) makes bringing along the grandkids easy.
