Barbounia or Gigino?

pastagrrl | Dec 5, 201012:38 PM

Hi Everybody,

We will be in Manhattan 12/23-27. We are staying in Murray Hill and will be a party of four on Christmas Eve and plan on eating at Ponty Bistro. If anyone has any feedback about this place I would love to hear it. There is no mention of it on this board. Reviews from other sites have been quite favorable.

For Christmas night we are a party of two and have narrowed our dinner choices to Barbounia and Gigino Trattoria. There is little mention of either of these places on CH and my research on Yelp and Urbanspoon has revealed mixed reviews for both, mainly in the area of service. By coincidence Barbounia is a ten minute stroll from our hotel and while this would be great I certainly don't want it to be a deciding factor.

Any opinions on any of the aforementioned would be greatly appreciated.
