I can't recommend this place enough. We have been coming here for the past 8 years and continue to comeback for the great food. The service is outstanding you are not sure who your server is because you never wait for anything. Eat here when in AC

We asked the Concierge at the Hotel Chelsea for a nearby Italian restaurant that had some authenticity and was not tied to a Casino. The Girasole was one of his high recommendations and it did not disappoint. I had once enjoyed a drink there some years ago with some light faire and I remembered it as an attractive alternative...a bit... More

We took our Mother-in-law out for her 80th birthday, needless to say we had a wonderful time. Our waiter was engaging and attentive. Bar none, one of the best meatballs I have ever had! ( sorry Mom! lol) The portions were perfect, enough to enjoy a dessert. We need to go back and try a brick oven pizza.

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!
