Girasole certainly tries to raise the bar for Italian cuisine in a glut of Italian food mediocrity and in some instances it does. The homemade pasta was quite good. The Carpaccio was a treat, but the Chicken Girasole was a flop. The chicken was a hunk of bland thick breast meat in a bland sauce with no accompaniment - blah!... More

This is Tuscany style gourmet Italian, so if you're looking for a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs and a more traditional Americanized menu, this may not be the best choice. But, if you want authentic Italian dishes served by knowledgeable Italian waiters set in a cozy Tuscan atmosphere, this is a wonderful choice. From artisan specialty brick oven pizzas... More

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you walk in, you will think you are in Tuscany. Aside from that, the food is some of the best Italian Specialty Cuisine I've ever had. The bar itself is a little small but the waiting area is comfortable and very elegant. The dining area boasts an open fire... More

My husband and I ordered a Veal Chop Milanese. When I asked the waiter to explain how that was cooked, he said it was butterflied then pan fried. When we got the veal chops, they were appeared to be deep fried and were very dry. Because we were with other people, I did not want to make an issue of... More

This place is always one of our top three restaurant stops in AC. The food is the best authentic italian in town. If your looking for pasta you have to get the sampler, the only problem is you can only choose 3 and they're all so good.

I've been here several times now, and the service never disappoints. Even though this is the first time we were there "in season," we were seated quickly and the wait for food/drinks wasn't bad. Their signature cocktails are great, and the Brussels sprouts are amazing!

Recently visited Girasole with 2 other couples. Have been here several times before. The brick oven pizza shared as an appetizer is a good choice. There are many varieties and you can watch it cook in the unique pizza oven. The ambience is more mediterranean than italian in theme and it's hard to tell that this is a true italian... More

First of all it would be nice to have a waiter that can communicate effectively in English (hey we are NJ). We had a reservation but was seated at a table outside the main dining room and didn't feel welcomed at all. Prices were higher than listed online.Our meals came 5 mins apart so I had to sit and watch... More

My friend and I had a really wonderful weekday lunch. I had excellent carpaccio and farfalle with salmon. My friend had a salad and the incredible braciole. I had a taste and I plan to return for it. Service was friendly and helpful.
