Hungry for something new in State College dining? Plan a visit to Gigi’s Restaurant and Wine Lounge which is redefining the casual dining experience in town.

Encompassing chic southern hospitality, the staff at Gigi’s takes the utmost pride in preparing new and intriguing menus so there’s something for every taste.

Once you set foot in Gigi’s you’ll notice the stylish interior that expresses modern elegance. However while Gigi’s has the look and feel of an upscale restaurant, what sets it apart from others is that it won’t leave a dent in your wallet.

Gigi’s is well known for its fantastic small plate menu options that are great for sharing with your table. Check out a few of the current menu items: Lobster Mac n’ Cheese, Spicy Fried Shrimp and Pork Belly.

Also great for sharing is the new Cheese and Charcuterie Board, which comes with seven different cheeses and five primary types of meat.

During the week, Gigi’s lunch menu is perfect for the busy business traveler or those just looking for an inexpensive meal. One of the current specials available is that for only $8.50, you can choose any two items (soups, salads, sides, or sandwiches) or choose three for $12.

Coming to town for a football weekend? One of the advantages of dining at Gigi’s is it’s located away from the crowds in the downtown area. Situated on Cato Avenue, right next to the Nittany Budget Motel, (website) it takes less than 10 minutes to get to Gigi’s from downtown. (Map)

If you’re in town while Penn State is away, come to Gigi’s for great service and sit around their indoor or outdoor fireplace before, during and after the game which is shown on all screens.

Gigi’s has brought some of the best wine selections from Napa Valley right here to Happy Valley. In addition to its already extensive wine collection, Gigi’s proudly serves eight different bottles of the finest chardonnay.
