A word from Girasole Ristorante
Girasole brings the charm of the old world to Atlantic City. From the moment you enter this bright, airy restaurant, you are whisked away to a Mediterranean café. The aroma of handmade pasta dishes, fresh seafood & gourmet brick oven pizza fills the air. Dine in the impeccably decorated restaurant or, in the warmer months, enjoy lunch or dinner on the lush garden patio. Indulge in a specialty cocktail from the bar & enjoy hors d'oeuvres, carpaccios & much more, all in sunny ambience.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We had a very good meal here. But just very good. Ordered the way too expensive lobster tail as an appetizer and was a bit disappointed with the price for the size of the tail. Our ceaser salad was good. Our entrees were good, except my short ribs were cold. I would have complained but our waiter didn't come back in a timely fashion. The wine selection is very good and very well priced. A very good meal that could have easily been better with more attentive service."

  • "This is the 2nd time my family and I have been here. The staff is friendly, the decor is beautiful-Girasole means Sunflower in Italian so that is their theme but not gaudy, it's tastefully done. The pizza is made in a brick oven and the Tagliatelle pasta is homemade- simply to die for!!!! I recommend it for anyone that wants a homemade meal at affordable prices!"

  • "And pleasant ambience. Sophisticated Italian: bronzino baked in salt is their specialty; An array of homemade pastas and boxed pastas: homemade papperadelle pasta with bologanese is my favorite; a selection of carpaccios--my favorite is warm filet with truffle oil and argula. Pretty restaurant and good service. Also have pizza cooked in a wood burning stove."

  • "I've been to Girasole several times and food is generally quite good. It is a little pricey but that's what you pay for good food and ambience. It was so crowded however that they stuck a table in an aisle and people were squeezing by it all night. With a reservation I expect a little better from a premier restaurant. Other than that, excellent."

  • "It was our first time at Girasole. It has always been recommended as a place that has great food. It did not disappoint. Both my wife and I had a very nice meal and we would definitely go back."

  • "I've had dinner at Girasole twice before with large parties of business associates and thought the food and service were very good as well a nice ambience away from the casino scene. My wife were in AC for just one evening and decided to go there for dinner. Since it was June and previous visits were in February, I wanted try the outside patio. It was a little sunny and hot until they pulled the retractable awning to provide some relief, but the pastas and sauces we ordered were great. Will go again."

  • "Service was absolutely awful. Server came up with some lame excuse that they were just gearing up for Summer (6 days prior to July 4) in a summer resort area. Food was not much better. I would never go back."

  • "The food was fantastic as it always is. We have been here several times and are never disappointed. The homemade pastas are the best! And I love that you can order half portions of the pastas so you can try them all."

  • "We honestly could not have been more disappointed in our experience. First, we walked in and there was nobody to greet us - we had to wander around the bar to find a waiter who gave us our choice of tables since there was literally nobody else there at our 6pm reservation time. The entire experience was awkward with the waiter and busboy not understanding English very well and barely being present. We found the menu a little confusing, but couldn't get explanations even when we asked. The waiter took our order and we did not see him again for 45 minutes when food arrived & our waiter said nothing to us. This was our 40th anniversary & we stated so on our reservation. We wanted nothing, but not once did any staff person wish us well."

  • "So I have been to this restaurant at least 4 times and always enjoyed it. This time the waiter would not order our appetizers until we placed our dinner order . We wanted to relax have a few drinks but that wasn't allowed. I asked to speak with the manager but he never came to the table . I ordered the veal chop and got a skinny breaded and fried cutlet with the bone for $38, really. Very disappointing meal on many levels for $400 for 2 couples."

  • "Wanted a restaurant in Atlantic City that was not in a hotel, not a chain, and preferably family-owned. Found it in this delightful place, with excellent food, gracious service, and a nice place to eat away from the casino tumult. Will definitely recommend to anyone going to AC and wanting a fine dining experience."

  • "We had been to the Girasole Ristorante in Phila and it was great! This venue was unenjoyable! Food was so-so to tasteless; Noise level was over the top: Had different waiters deliver sthe wrong food and mix up the bill. Would not return!!!"

  • "I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed dinner at Girasole. Our GPS took us to the wrong address which made us 45 minutes late. We were greeted with a big smile and a warm welcome. After that it was the best martini I ever had followed by one of the best meals I ever had. If you are in Atlantic City you must have at least one meal at this lovely place!"

  • "It started very nice 10 min. Later our waiter got a 4 top and a 2 top,she was new. That was the last I seen of her. I had to ask others to get her. Also 15 min into dinning, 25 men were seated next and around us. And yelling from one table to another. I often used the place for celabrating. special events .sorry to say I won't be going back. Someone could said something it was so Easy to see what was going on. "

  • "We ate here before a race the next morning, on the earlier side. The restaurant is quite nice and is very well-decorated. It's not in the nicest part of Atlantic City, but you forget that pretty quickly once inside. The service was very friendly and attentive. Our meals came out quickly and were tasty. We both had some of the pasta made on-site. Overall, it was a very pleasant and enjoyable meal, and I would be happy to recommend it to others."

  • "So many choices, I was delighted, from four different crudo appetizers, uniquely prepared as ultra thin slices of fish, beautiful, great pizzas, fantastic ribeye steak that my husband had, many homemade pastas, gnocchi and red sauce delectable, they also offer a wonderful pri fixe option until seven pm M-F for $31.00. Really worth trying if you like Italian. You can have full dinner or select from many small plate options and Italian. Everything we tried was very good. There is also a bar to order your favorite cocktails and wine and free valet parking at ocean club condos which houses the restaurant."

  • "I had been here before so when my coworkers asked if I could recommend a restaurant - I chose Girasole. They have freshly made in-house pastas which I just can't pass up. Beef and tuna Carpaccio is delicious. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. There is a wide variety of food to choose from. I've dined here with a vegetarian and a gluten free diet and they had no problems finding something they enjoyed. Next time I'm trying the salt crusted fish that they crack open tableside."

  • "Tried restaurant during restaurant week because menu sounded good. Pros: Extensive menu for restaurant week. Great ambience. There was a room set up for a private party that was visible and it looked beautiful - definitely something I would consider for a shower, rehearsal dinner,etc.. Eggplant-zuccini appetizer and veal parm were delicious and good size portions COns: Disliked both desserts. Veal parmigiana didn't come iwth a side. Salmon was just fair. Person who ordered the tuna appetizer didn't like it. Tuna slices were so thin they were translucent and he didn't see them at first & thought he was served the wrong appetizer 5) weren't asked if we wanted coffee/tea. Overall, this wasn't one of our better restaurant experiences"
