Excellent foodWe have been to Girasole several times and just love the bronzino as well as everything else we have tried. The wine list is very good and the drinks are made well. We have never been disappointed in a meal here.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMRome without the long haul flightFrom the outside, my party wasn't sure We crept inside the door, and were warmly greeted by a maître d. He got us situated at a corner table, and got our waiter for us.
I felt like I was in a traditional restaurant on the outskirts of Rome.
For me, the ambience is of a suburban Roman home crowded with luxuries.
Service was excellent but not corporate or chain-like. No wine sommelier, but the waiter got assistance from the barman.
Food was excellent. One in my party can’t eat spice, and the waiter happily complied with her order to make adjustments to the pasta in regard to the spice and sauce. The carpaccio was good, as was the whole fish baked in a salt dome.
The deserts were huge and tasty, and the coffee, perfectly: Illy.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific!This was our first visit to Girasole, but it won't be our last. If we lived in the neighborhood we would become regulars. The homemade ravioli and gnocchi were very good. The service was attentive without being over-bearing.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDo not miss this gem!WOW. Someone in my party declared their meal was the best of their life. I have had many people recommend Italian restaurants only to be disappointed- that won't happen here. We ordered from the prix fixe menu, where for $33.00 we each got an app, entree, & dessert. All of the apps were fantastic- very tasty beef carpaccio,tuna carpaccio,excellet sausage greens and beans,& a mushroom pizza,which was regular size with real mozzerella. We all had a piece. For our entrees we ordered veal parm which had delicious sauce, braciola with FRESH gnocchi, and delicious pesto linguini. The prix fixe menu had four unique,delicious desserts, we each got one: ricotta cheese cake,tiramisu,panna cotta, & chocolate mousse. The food & service are excellent.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA pleasant surprise.We found this restaurant on Open Table while we were in Atlantic City. We wanted a nice restaurant that wouldn't cost a fortune. Girl sole was the perfect restaurant. The ambience was wonderful, the staff is all family from Italy, the food was good and the price was right. Our only problem was trying to locate their free valet parking. If you try this restaurant, the valet parking is down the street in the Ocean Club. Bon Appetite!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!My party of 6 had a wonderful meal. We had their fixed price menu which included appetizer, entree and dessert and it was well worth it. The food was excellent and portions plentiful. I did have an issue with Open Table. I made the reservation for 6 people but wanted to change it to 7 but when I tried Open Table indicated that I could not get a reservation for 7 people for the next 8 weeks. When we arrived, the restaurant was completely empty except for our party but about an hour later it got busier, but still was not full to capacity. For future reference, if you need to change your reservation and Open Table doesn't allow it, call the restaurant directly.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall good experience. ThefoodOverall good experience. Thefood is good, just missing the mark for greatness, it needs alittle added flavor. The wine list could have afew lesser expensive bottles too.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at Girasole was great!Dinner at Girasole was great! Food was delicious and staff was wonderful. We had an early dinner before heading out to a show and it was very quiet in the restaurant for most of our dinner. However, by the time we were leaving it was a packed house and vibrant scene. Will definitely return.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOH YEATook a shot and was glad I did.
A long time Philly and AC bastion of Italian excellence.
I had the prixe fixe lunch which atarted with a warm filet mignon carppaccio
and a pasta entrée with a fine homemade Bolognese sauce.
The Italian cheese cake for dessert with the ricotta had to be one of the best Ive ever had and that's many.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here a dozen times.Been here a dozen times. This time it was a tiny bit "off".Our server was the slowest one they have and my normally superb eggplant/zucchini appetizer was cold.However the veal parm was flawless and the panna cotta desert was best I have ever had.The Papardelle with wild mushrooms also awesome as usual.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMReason enough to come to ACEvery phase of the meal was excellent. The service was pleasant, prompt and non-intrusive. Loved the risoto and osso bucco. This was our second time at Girasole and we really look forward to coming back soon.
