On a weeknight, I went with friends to Girasole because of its proximity to an event we attended on Broad St. This was my first visit, and I won't rush back. The atmosphere was pleasant and quiet, since the restaurant was almost empty. I understand...More

In a city like Philadelphia that has so many wonderful dining options, Girasole was nothing special. The food was good enough, but not worth the $120 tab for two. It was a 3 star experience at 5 star prices.
