Good food and service. Was there with a large party and the staff accommodated everyone great. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Smaller place so I would recommend reservations if they accept them.

We came back after a year to see if Girasole still made very good food. The answer is “Yes” they still serve very good food but you still have to make a reservation a least 2 weeks ahead for a Friday or Saturday night.

Went here for lunch during the week and no reservations were needed. The food is fresh and good. Hubby had the mustard based sauce salmon which he REALLY loved, I had the seafood pasta that was also very good.

Food and service were very good. You have to make reservations weeks in advance. Ate there many times and I have not had a bad meal or experience. Definitely would go back for a special night.

No, there is no dress code. You can go in a T-Shirt but I would wear long pants. It is a very nice restaurant try to not wear shorts.

Call for a reservation 732-469-1080. You should have a decent chance at a short advance notice reservation. While it's summer and people are off from work, at least you're not looking for a Friday or Saturday night. Good... More
