Great food , good staff who were alert and aware but not in your face .Only down side really was parking , especially for us as we were not from the area the main car park was fenced off , but that was not the restaurants fault.We will definitely be back.

Hi Trevor. Thanks very much for the positive review. The town square car park was fenced off on Saturday night ready for the turning on of the Christmas lights event on Sunday so was a one-off. Hope to see you again soon. More

Hi William, thanks for your comprehensive review. With regard to the beer selection we do also stock Birra Moretti which has a lower ABV% than Peroni so you may prefer this. Shame about your steak, you don't say when it was when you had this but in the 18 months since I have owned the restaurant we've never garnished anything... More

We love this quiet, relaxed restaurant, and go as often as we can, but also use it as our favourite Italian take away.

I have been here a few times now in big groups business, family and friends, smaller tables and as a couple for a nice intimate dinner and thought it's time to review the experience myself, my family and business colleagues have had. Group bookings are a fabulous thing here at Il Girasol, we've had groups of 16+ people and preordered... More

The food is great here- recommend the pizzas and the calzones. Pasta portions tend to be a bit small although nice food. Lovely atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and polite, albiet a little inexperienced. Most are young and just need a little more training. Great restaurant overall :)

Had a fantastic business team dinner for 20 at Il Girasole last night. Food was delicious, great value for genuinely authentic tasting Italian food. Pizza was unanimously declared as fantastic, great crispy bases and perfect portion size (probably the nicest Quattro Formaggi I have tasted outside of Italy). The service was brilliant. Friendly, welcoming staff, not at all phased by... More

We made a 90 mile round trip from Northampton to St Neots to eat here after my husband had spotted the restaurant on a previous occasion and loved the look of the menu. We were not disappointed. The restaurant itself had a great atmosphere, the staff could not have been more polite and helpful and the food was as good... More
