Girasole is located in a small little country town known as The Plains. Both the interior and exterior are beautiful; however the property abuts an active railroad track. Several trains rumbled by when we were there for dinner on a Sunday night. There is a...More

Went with another couple to this nice place. Very relaxed vibe with an outdoor garden patio. Inside has nice artwork and sculptures throughout. Lots of nice food choices. Appetizer of breaded and fried green olives stuffed with meat was unique and tasty. For dinner I...More

Absolutely charming interior....a chic European farmhouse. Food is fresh and delicious. Caesar salad is the best I've tasted in Virginia! We go there for birthdays and anniversaries. Special place.
