In Dinner Rush, Danny Aiello is the proprietor of an Italian restaurant founded by his mother. Gigino's served as the movie set. Diners will recognize the layout, especially the stairs that descend to the office, where much of the action takes places. Local regulars who realize that the restaurant as described in the movie would never be located in Tribeca still flock to this comfortable spot for its tasty elegant appetizers and big plates of steaming pasta. The rich mushroom risotto is always on the money, and so are the pizzas.
