“Great food, but noisy”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

The spinach ravioli was perfectly cooked and delicious. Prices were reasonable. The only drawback was that it was quite noisy and hard to carry on a conversation with others at the table.

“Osso Buco!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Small intimate environment. Great food and excellent service. Can be a bit noisy. Go the last weekend of each month when they offer the osso buco. You won't be disappointed

“Fabulous!!!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I've been frequenting Girasole for years and just had to write a review. The food is amazing, fantastic Italian food!!! Girasole has a wonderful menu that changes seasonally but always has a few classics. My favorite are the gnocchi and the wonderful house salad with their delicious house vinaigrette. Yum!!! Wonderful, must try!!!!

“Pumpkin Raviolis a Miss....”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Tried this in October of 12'. Parking is a mess in Shadyside but the food was good, even if service was a bit slow. I thought the Pumpkin Raviolis were a miss, but everything else was good. Limited menu as well.

“Good Italian food with a nice atmosphere and location”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

The food was very good and the restaurant cosy and lively. The location and surrounding neighborhood was pleasant. The prices seemed a little high but not out of league for a larger city though the wine list was inordinately pricey. It was full on a Tuesday and obviously a popular place though a bit loud. I'd eat there again.
