I have always liked this restaurant, but haven't eaten here for some time until last week. My husband & I thought we'd go for an Italian and we got such a surprise to see a new menu including steak, fish & chicken dishes. I wish the restaurant owners had advertised this, as I think we would have tried it out... More

As an Architect I can say I've eaten very good food in a interesting cozy Italian style interior. Very good selection of pizzas , you do not get it in the mainstream pizza places. Would definitely recommend if you fancy Italian cuisine and want to eat it in a quite cozy place. Recommended by : mareksekowskiarchitect.com

This is a lovely little restaurant with bags of atmosphere and good food. I've eaten there a few times and have had a pleasant evening each time. Personally, I think it's a tad overpriced, but the food is good and you get huge portions. Would recommend.

8 of us dined tonight after the St Neots regatta. Food was adequate, not bad but adequate. The chicken in breadcrumbs was bland and beige, the calzone had no sauce and was burnt on the outside and dry on the inside, tuna was overcooked and the sauce was far too salty. Service was slow and sporadic for which the waiter... More

Since moving to St Neots 5 years ago, my partner and I have been regular visitors to Il Girasole. Personally, I love the restaurant, the decor, the atmosphere and by and large the food, although the service has often been a bit sketchy (mainly due to the odd member of staff as opposed to a general lack of quality) but...

We visit St Neots for 7 days every 6 weeks or so on business and always try to fit in a meal at Girasole. for me, the Chicken salad is perfect, served at the correct temperature with mushrooms, olives, peppers and beautiful moist chicken. The restaurant obviously has considerable competition from the new Pizza Express and the fairly new Italian... More

We ate here as part of a Groupon deal which included a pizza and Bellini for two. We were greeted warmly, seated quickly and had our drinks in our hands within a blink of an eye. We both had starters, the scallop special and the carpaccio of beef, and they were delicious. We opted for a mexicana and a carpaccio... More

I have been coming here for 14 years. Always decent food and great service. The calzone are HUGE! They have competition from Pizza Express now and don't seem to be trying to keep/drive custom. The food here is more authentic and tasty compared to PE but the service this time seems to lack passion and pride. Come on guys- step... More

All food was hot and tasty. Would recommend as a nice meal out. Service very friendly and cheerful. Bit slow with the bill but the waitress was quite busy.
