Description: Located in the historic center of Sirmione, Ristorante il Girasole has a large dining room (for non-smokiners) and a partly covered terrace surrounded by flowers and plants, which overlooks the picturesque Via Vittorio Emanuele . It is an ideal restaurant for a romantic candlelight dinner or to spend time with your friends, in an "out of time" atmosphere that Sirmione has to offer in every seasons. The dining room is air conditioned and can hold 60 persons; the terrace 40 people. The cuisine is creative and national. Pride and a sign of distinction is the wine cellar, which offers about 450 different local wines (Garda and Franciacorta), national and international .

First, the staff were easily able to accommodate my mum's gluten free menu, including gluten free pasta. The set menus, both for dinner and lunch, were good value with a good choice of dishes. (yes we enjoyed dinner so much we returned for lunch another day). The only thing we didn't like was the 'frito misto del lago' at lunch - it was 99% small salty crunchy strong fish smaller and stronger than whitebait.

We visited this restaurant for the first time last year and gave them a good review, and we had the opportunity to visit the restaurant again this year where we enjoyed our wedding anniversary dinner.
Liliana, a long standing waitress at the restaurant, looked after us really well on our first visit and was very welcoming on our return this year. She looked after our every need and ensured we had the most amazing wedding anniversary dining experience – from securing a secluded table on the patio, ensuring we had a delightful gluten free dinner and a ‘take all the time you want service’ – we had a truly great evening. The restaurant stocks good wines and the table service is very good at recommending suitable wines – we have never been disappointed with their suggestions.
We actually dined at the restaurant 3 times during our stay in Sirmione because of the quality of the food, the service and the very pleasant dining experience. We would have dined their every night or lunch time if it wasn’t for our need to explore gluten free dining options in Sirmione.
We highly recommend this restaurant, it has maintained its high standard since our last visit and we found the price of the food and wine comparable to other restaurants in Sirmione and a much more 'classy' experience in this popular holiday location.

On holiday in Sirmione we went to this restaurant twice. On our first visit we tried the 4 course fish based menu which at 28 euros turned out to be very good value. Able to sit on the pleasant terrace watching the world go by. Liked the meal so much we went back another day and tried their 3 course meat based menu option at 25 euros - again very good. Service was attentive and friendly. Although we tried the set menus there was an extensive range of other dishes and a good wine list.

I really don't understand how anybody can give a good review to this place! We just ate pizza and sincerely was the worst I've eaten in years, at the level of a cheap pizza from a fast food. I hope other dishes are better, otherwise they just made up all these good reviews.

NIce atmosphere on the terrace. An excellent well priced menu with good value to be had in the set meals. Polite, understated yet efficient service.
