This is the old O'Connell's for those that remember that place. That was one of my favorites too. The menu and the management is all new and totally Italian. It is a great place to take the family or for a romantic interlude. You will love Gigi's They also feature live entertainment from time to time. The night we were... More

I must have gone to this place on an off day because the three people in my party were all disappointed. We all had different pasta dishes. They were undercooked and under seasoned. How hard is it to get pasta right? The server seemed totally indifferent to us and acted like she resented that we were even there. I would... More

The Staff, Food & Desserts are excellent, especially the pies & banana pudding to die for. Would highly recommend trying this establishment. The corn bread was the best I ever had as was the sweet potato pie. Will definitely go there again.

The food was very well seasoned and the portions were large. I got the Haddock fish with mac & cheese with green beans and cornbread. This was the... More

Their mac & cheese is very good. I've only had take out here - so I can't speak to the ambiance. But I've loved everything I have tried! Not too far from Elmwood, Allentown, or Downtown sights (City Hall or riverfront) - so you could make a day of it.

GiGi's is flat-out wonderful. The only reason we don't go there more is that Polly (Mrs. CG) fears they serve "too much food"... Doug (The Cheap Gourmet) hit the place in conjunction with a ballgame as the snow lifted and had an anxious moment at the counter when he couldn't seem to get served... After 10-12 minutes a waitress came... More

One of my favorite restaurants. Best homemade mac n' cheese around and I have never had such moist corn bread in my life. Peach Cobbler is A+. I'm a vegetarian and love all the side dishes. Perfect size portions too. Staff is always friendly. Taking friends there this Friday.

Ox tails, fried cat fish, salmon patties, and fried chicken. Everything was great. Sides were even better. Just good SOUL Food! You can take kids of all ages and your children will find something to eat that they really like.
