Interesting place, will go back

I was there for a business lunch meeting. Quiet and was told is always quiet for lunch. Nice size menu with a lot of Italian fare to offer. I had one of their lunch special which was a lot of food. Their pizzas are good. The menu had a lot of options I'd love to try. Next time I want... read more

Just finished a late dinner here tonight. This is a very special restaurant! The food is textbook perfect and the options extensive. The servers and staff were attentive and professional. The atmosphere was relaxing and upscale with no pretense. I loved my appetizer, main dish and amazing panna cotta dessert. Don't miss this place, I'd regret it if you did!

If you are looking for authentic Italian food and a casual dining experience check out Girasole Ristorante. Our server Gennaro was excellent! He was very professional and friendly and he speaks Italian. There is something special about having the menu items read aloud the way they are supposed to sound. The Cesar Salad was great. The lettuce, dressing and white... More

After looking through many menus of the Italian restaurants in Atlantic City, I found what seemed to be something special. We were greeted with a warm welcome even though we were about fifteen minutes late for our reservation. We liked the fact that we weren't rushed at all during dinner. Their menu had at least ten different types of Carpacio... More

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
