Girasole has closed.......finally..........the owner who offended so many is gone. When I was told this, I called and the female voice on the voice mail said that she was opening a new restaurant with a different name in that space in September.

We booked our reservation through Savored.com which is now owned by Groupon. When we arrived we reminded the owner that we came through Savored. We were 4 people who ordered 3 cocktails, 4 pricey appetizers and 1 chichen and one lamb chops that was a special($49). The waiter brought us 3 lamb chops. When we reminded him that we placed...

This was my second visit to this restaurant and unfortunately it just does not offer me a "Wow" factor. This establishment is small & intimate in design, it is aptly decorated, but it can get loud. At first look the menu should offer something to satisfy everyone & if you enjoy wine a nice selection too. If wine isn't your... More

This is my first bad review because I don't like to do that to places. However, as I have now seen in other reviews, there is something wrong with the manager/owner and I can't believe the restaurant is still in business. This owner/manager acted psychotic while we were there and started screaming at some other customers who complained that the... More

When I just called to complain he answered the phone I told him how rude he was and he said " I do not care what you think. I have... More

it was Sunday, 2pm and amazing weather. The place was empty. Went there a few days ago with a friend of mine. We sat outside and moved the table a few inches from the unpleasant plastic covered wall. We then realized that the table was not stable and asked him kindly to do something about it. He comes to us,... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times over the years and it has only gotten better with each visit. You are heartily greeted when you arrive, and evey meal begins with cold antipasto, which is simple and tasty. For starters, try their signature artichoke dish; it is savory and I think not too caloric. I love their... More

Quiet, pleasant surroundings. We ordered two of the specials without asking the price. When we got the check, a halibut steak was $38.00 and a fileted chichen parmesan was $28.00. Both were overpriced.

The owner is a fabulous guy who has made THE neighborhood haunt. Fantastic menu and the food and wine are always great. Sure it's a local place but whenever I take out of towners., they love the place and ask to come back.

Had dinner with my inlaws,the restaurant was not busy but yet it was still very loud. The restaurant is on a great neighborhood street and was exactly what i expected from a neighborhood italian spot. Tables are small and packed, the servers are professional and move effortlessly about the small space. The manager does have a slightly offputting attitude but... More
