Fodor's Expert Review Gigi Trattoria
A sophisticated clientele crowds the bar, patio, and dining rooms of this lively Italian restaurant, once the showroom of a car dealership. The food, billed as "Hudson Valley Mediterranean," includes artfully crafted salads, house-made pastas, and hearty entrées. Baby greens provide a bed for roasted butternut squash, beets, and asparagus dressed with walnuts and crumbled goat cheese. Toppings for the "skizzas" (flatbread pizzas) range from a sausage–broccoli rabe–mozzarella combo to a goat cheese, mozzarella, arugula, pears, and figs option. Reservations are only accepted for parties of 6 or more.
