The original and best Italian restaurant in St Neots

The only real Italian restaurant in St Neots. If you want authentic Italian food & a cosy setting, this is the place to go. The service is not always the quickest, but this isn't a fast food joint. If you want a conveyor belt experience, go to Prezzo or Frankie & Benny's.

Ate here as part of a company event with around 20 colleagues. The service was very slow - when the dishes did arrive they were bought out one by one so the first to be served had cold meals by the time the last plate arrived on the table. The food was also very indifferent and I thought overpriced for... More

haven't dined here since the new cinema complex has opened, and with it the pizza express. Therefore it's fair to say that Girasola now has direct competition and they have responded well. The menu choices have greatly increased but the family run atmosphere remains. Myself and daughter dined on a Saturday night bout 18:30. The menu impressed. We picked the... More

I love this Italian! It is a little pricey for the food but you certainly get what you pay for. Lovely food, perfectly cooked. Nice and cosy inside and staff are very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I were here for lunch. We had an appetizer and ordered from the regular, not the lunch menu, so it was expensive for lunch but that was our fault. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the sauce sublime on the spicy pasta (forgive me, I forget the exact name); my wife's pizza Roma pizza was as good... More

We spent a nice evening at Il Girasole with a couple of our friends and their children. The food was really good and so was the atmosphere. The cook making the pizza even allowed the kids to come up and watch him make pizza and he allowed them to play with some dough of their own. I cannot say enough... More
