Busy Saturday night called in on the off chance and they fitted the 4 of us in. The food and staff were both excellent and will definitely return to try more from this lovely menu.

Visited the restaurant with my family this weekend and was extremely disappointed. Have been visiting it over the past 8 years and have always been happy with the quality of food. However this occasion under new owners there were some issues. The mixed bread came with a dip that was meant to be garlic butter it was inedible. My dish... More

Went to this restaurant with my granddaughter back in May, it was a treat for both of us, looks very small from outside but once in it's like a tardiss, the food was wonderful, staff very attentive but not over the top, all in all would recommend

3 of us tried to get a table at the Turkish restaurant in St.Neots last Friday night 24th June but it was fully booked so we decided to try the Girasole. We have been once before and had Pizza's one Sunday time so we knew it was a nice restaurant. Anyway the very kind man behind the bar found us... More

Recent change in owners and unfortunately it has gone downhill. Service was horrendous, one waiter (think was the owner, was particularly rude). Staff got a drinks order wrong more than 3 times, one member of the party said the carbonara was horrific so waiter tried it and claimed it was ok. Out of 8 in the party, many tried it... More

I had arranged to meet friends today for lunch and we decided to try this restaurant having read reviews on Trip Adviser. I was not disappointed. We received a warm welcome and the staff were attentive without being intrusive. The food was of a good quality and the wine we selected was excellent and served at just the right temperature....

We ate her today purely on the favourable reports on Trip Advisor. The service was first class, the food excellent and the menu very reasonably priced. The best Italian meal I have had for ages. Do try it, you will not be disappointed.

We have visited several times and have always had an amazing time. Food is fantastic. Service is always very personal and genuine. They are also great at hosting big parties. Thoroughly recommended.

Had dinner tonight at the suggestion of friend at Il Girasole in St Neots. Had seen it from the street before but never tried it. It looked so small......but it is like the TARDIS. It is spacious and beautifully decorated inside. The staff was warm and attentive, service was excellent as well. The wife and I will be returning to... More
