Il Girasole restaurant is a quaint and quiet restaurant featuring finer dining fare in a comfortable setting. The pastas are homemade and delicious. Excellent apps and good desserts made fir an overall outstanding meal.

Excellent strip mall Italian Restaurant. Note that they are moving after their summer vacation which starts in August. The special menu is a great deal. I had the shrimp parm which was baked and not fried. I loved it. The soups are terrific and the desserts are well done. Try to confirm when the special menu is available. The regular... More

Our friends have been raving about this restaurant for years and suggested we try it with them for their Summer Menu. My friend made the reservation a few weeks ago confirming that the restaurant would have its Sumer Menu available (5/20). When we arrived and were given menus we were told that the Summer Menu hasn't started yet. The friend... More

We have been happily going to Il Girasole for the past 14 years. Until tonight it was one of our favorite, "go to" restaurants. Tonight was a terrible disappointment. Every summer Il Girasole has a special summer menu. I asked about that special 4 different times, and was told each time that it would begin after Mother's Day. I wanted... More

Il Girasole is in a very unlikely location for the ambiance and quality of food. Don't let that put you off. A favorite of the locals, the food is always good, the service efficient and friendly and important to us, you can hear your table partners. No noisy, busy atmosphere here. You can sit and enjoy your friends and food... More

The food is creative and the preparation is excellent. The service is terrific. You will find some unusually fine dishes and a nice selection of wines. The restaurant has a very loyal following of fairly senior customers who know a good thing. The prices are very fair for fine dining. This restaurant is moving to new quarters this summer, but...

Clearly this restaurant is one of the best in Delray Beach, FL. The wait staff are knowledgeable, considerate and efficient. The food both times we have been here has been excellent. We hear the mushroom soup is a specialty however we have not had a chance to try it as the Vichyssoise is to die for. The veal dishes are... More

There are many mediocre restaurants that get away with putting up a menu that looks authentic like this "Italian" restaurant. Even if the chef is Italian (which I don't know he or she is), doesn't make it a good Italian place. And this one is certainly not. The food wasn't great.Just OK if you get it in any other contemporary... More

My wife and I are of different opinions. She loved the food. I said it was good. She wants to run back. I'm want to walk back. Really the food is good but as I said to her today, the dining experience is more than just the food. The food is good. The decor is old but ok. But the... More

We were not disappointed. Much like going to a European family restaurant where the quality is a matter of honour. One comment: our Caesar salads were very over garlicky. Veal Kristy is a favourite dish of mine and did not disappoint. The wine list is accessible and affordable.
