    Allow me to preface — I’m not easy to please. The food was excellent, well prepared, presented, and executed. Interior design almost hit its mark. The fabrics were sumptuous but not all spoke perfectly together. It’s a nuanced thing. It is very loud so perhaps some additional sound baffles on the ceiling would help. Pet peeve that was excruciatingly irritating: The servers’ striped jackets were objectionable on 2 levels: the fit was abhorrent and the print is reminiscent of German prison uniforms.

    Really cute place, we sat toward the back of the restaurant near the pizza oven and it was nice back there. The burrata appetizer was great, we shared the risotto tartufato and the gnocchi con burratta. The risotto had a very strong flavor profile, it was delicious! I'm not sure where the buratta was in the gnocchi, maybe it's mixed in when they make them because there certainly wasn't any visible in the dish.

    Very attentive staff (Michelle thanks for all of your great recommendations) and the food, from start to finish, was delicious. We started with cheese and meat boards, followed by carpaccio funghi, then entrees (Veal Parm to die for, Bucatini, Bolognese and Paccheri con Ragu) that were all amazing.

    It had been a few years since I was at Girasole. Not much has changed--which is good! I enjoy their higher quality Italian cuisine which is more than just pasta dishes buried in tomato sauce. Their homemade bread is delicious. Soup was quite tasty and our entrees were well blended pasta dishes. Dessert was a tiramisu which was a bit heavy but still quite good. We came away stuffed being unable to put down our utensils until we had every bite. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was romantic. Girasole retains its old-world charm.

    We ate on Valentines day. They had a special menu as well as the regular one. I have the Osso Bucco and my wife had the veal chop. The food was delicious. We did have cocktails before ... they were a little small and a bit pricy but very good. We also had starters which were excellent and large portions.

    Delicious and creative menu items. Elegant dining without the snob appeal. A great addition for AC restaurants. And, plenty of vegetarian options that are tasty and interesting. Not just a bland uninspired bowl of pasta!

    GIRASOLE is a fantastic spot to check out for a date night, romantic evening or even a night out with some friends. Between the lighting, decor and overall vibe, they make you feel relaxed and welcome. The food is amaaaazing as you can tell everything is fresh, made in house and authentic! This was my second time visiting but my first time trying the pizza. I can honestly say it was the best pizza I have ever experienced. The pasta dishes are out of this world and the cocktails are on point! Not to forget the service was top notch! Thank you GIRASOLE for another fantastic experience!

    We don't get to Atlantic City very often. But when we do its Girasole for dinner. Brick oven pizza that's prepared fresh when you order it. Absolutely delicious. The main courses are just wonderful and cooked to perfection. Them make you feel like your the only diners. Really nice people. GO THERE AND TRY IT YOURSELF.

    Eclectic Italian restaurant near Tropicana on the strip, but separate from the chain driven casino fare. Girasole is closer to authentic Italian coastal fare than your run of the mill Italian-American menu. The ambience is great, especially inside in the main dining area. The bartender and the hostess were pleasant, on the ball and not hard on the eyes. The food was very good. There were some hi end wines as well as reasonably priced bottles. This is one of a handful of very good stand alone restaurants in AC. Enjoy but don’t tell everyone!

    We heard many good things for this upscale restaurant and wanted to enjoy it NYE; however, we left feeling annoyed and left down. The good points were that the music was different--upbeat and unique. The bread was warm an very fresh. That's where it ends. There was no large sign to find the door nor signs for parking. We paid for parking unnecessarily down the street. There was no acknowledgement or reception when we walked in the door. With reservations, we had to wait while confusion was sorted out and we were then taken to a tiny table in the corner next to a large group with seats both facing them on a sofa. We ended up outside with a heater and felt forgotten in that back area. Understaffed?? Not sure but minimal interaction with waitress. My salmon was raw and brocolli cold. Nothing special at all. This is the first negative review I have ever written on Open Table. FYI to others. In addition, Pacific Avenue neighborhood was shady at best. Live and Learn.

    The food was outstanding. We had the Girasole chicken breast and salt encrusted whole bronzino for entrees - the caesar salad and melanzane e zucchine etc. for appetizers. The wine selection was nice and reasonably priced for an 8 oz glass. The appetizers were a bit slow, but that could be expected due to the New Years Eve crowd - we ate early (6 pm) so I presume most were pre-party folks. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Out table was on the "porch" with heaters so the temperature did fluctuate a bit from hot to cold. Overall - a nice evening with excellent food and service.

    A little pricey, but all the good ones are. Beef Carpaccio, one of my fave apps, was amazing. We all had home made pasta entrees that were excellent. Also had gluten free pasta. Tiramisu was great but had too much alcohol flavor for our tase so they happily removed it from the check. Busy on New Years Eve but service was attentive. Beautifully decorated, a very special evening.

    1 of 3 entrees came out lukewarm. Our table was wedged between the open pizza oven and a large table of 8 which were so loud. The wait staff was very attentive to the large group. Service for our table of 3 was below average. Don’t plan to return.

    In my opinion, hands down the best Italian food in Atlantic City. This was my second visit and my girlfriend's first. We split the Pasta Tasting of Three. We chose the Orecchietti, the Carbonara and the Chitarra. All three pastas were perfectly cooked and the flavors were great. The atmosphere was very nice. Warm and comfortable, with a good amount of conversation heard throughout. Service was definitely great considering how packed the restaurant was. We will be back very soon.

    I’ve been to this restaurant numerous times, it was a family favorite. However, realizing that there is an inflation going on and food along with everything else has been on the rise, what this establishment charged for the mediocre food that my husband and I ate on his birthday two days ago is just pure taking advantage of customers. We are no strangers to paying for great food, ambience location, etc. but our meal on Friday and experience was none of that. We will not be returning.

    We have heard great things from friends who have been to Girasole, but we were disappointed. The food was clunky and not well curated. The pomodoro salad appetizer was $26 for a quartered tomato, translucently sliced cucumber and green pepper with an all too much vinegar dressing. I would not serve this to guests in my home. Entrees were pretty good. Service was not great. We were trying to catch anyone to refill our water for quite some time. We could not hear our server speaking- it was not loud and our hearing is just fine.
