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.

Food was very good but not great. Service was good. Ambiance was a bit weird with our table sort of in the middle of the restaurant which was narrow and so it felt we were in the middle of a hallway, and worse yet, the kitchen's door as next to the table so staff was constantly passing us by.

This is a cozy restaurant with a very impressive menu. We began our meal with the Carpaccio Bronzino. The dish was impeccable, a perfect balance of flavors. Our main courses were the Salmone and the Langostino. The salmon dish was tender and light but satisfying. The Langostino dish was decadent, a Special of the Day that I wish would become a regular dish on the menu. Desserts were amazing, especially the Panna Cotta.

Beautiful place and i never give a bad review but the food was laughable. We ordered the shared, pasta trio. It was worse than Chef Boyardee Beefaroni. It was actually embarrassing to be eating it. The chef should have been ashamed. The Girasole carpaccio was ok but not fabulous. Wish I could say better things. This was our fourth time there too. Usually get steaks which are good but not fabulous for the price. Our last time there, for now. Maybe for cocktails in the bar. Step it up Girasole!!

Was very surprised with prices of the features of the day we ordered $66 when they’re highest menu item is $45 and they didn’t tell you what the specials prices were ,
That were overpriced and deceiving

Girasole is by far one of our favorite restaurants in Atlantic City. We have been there many times, actually three times this weekend alone! We’ve been telling our friends about it and they all asked to go there this visit- we were happy to oblige! The food is always spectacular! Over the weekend, we had the Burrata Pizza, Pasta e Fagioli soup, Caesar Salad, Braciole, Chicken Girasole, Carpaccio Girasole (every visit this weekend!) Ravioli, Filet (special dinner) and sides and desserts. The quality of the food is better than anything you’ll find in the area and the atmosphere as well as the service is amazing, always! We will definitely be back and highly recommend this restaurant!

This was the second time we dined at Girasole in just about a week. Both occasions were superb from our seating, to our our service to the excellently prepared food. The Branzino was perfectly prepared, not a minute over cooked. The carpaccio was soft and delicately sliced and dressed deliciously. The thin crusted appetizer pizza crust was light and there was enough for a light lunch and not a dinner appetizer. The profiteroles were delicious as was the blood orange margarita to start off dinner. I would recommend Girasole to any Atlantic City diner on any night. A perfect dinner!

We wanted to try a new place and always passed Girasole while walking. Had plans elsewhere but decided to change last minute and was accommodated. When we entered were greeted by two Italian ladies(great start)then seated at a nice table by window where we were given bread and olive oil right away and menu. They also were nice and gave us a restaurant week menu which we ordered from liking the choices. We started with the burrata and pizza which both were fresh and delicious. Then I Had homemade gnocchi and my mom had the veal parm both were perfect. Later we had the profiteroles and panda cotta. It was a great evening with mom and both our server Susie and bus boy who chatted with us made our evening memorable . We will refer and return

My husband and I were excited that Girasol extended their restaurant week menu since we had to cancel our reservations there due to the beginning of Covid restrictions. It was a delight to finally celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary during restaurant week. The choices were incredible. My husband had the burrata appetizer and I had the carpaccio. Both were memorable. The veal parmigiana was outstanding and my gnocchi were pillows of deliciousness. Our server was attentive and pleasant. I highly recommend this restaurant.

First time there after years of seeing it advertised at AC airport. Great ambiance and attentive service. It was Restaurant Week so we ordered off that menu. The calamari appetizer was perfectly cooked and Caesar salad delicious. Gnocchis melted in your mouth. The side of asparagus was also perfectly cooked and had unique crema topped with bacon on side to dip into. Only negative to us was where we were seated - there were 4 2-top tables side by side, very close which we personally find awkward when having conversation or getting up/down. We were initially asked if we wanted to sit outside or inside and because it was our first time there, we just weren’t aware of that location so next time we’d just ask to be seated elsewhere. Although website says you can valet park at Ocean Club, we did not see valet parking so we used the lot diagonally across the street and it was only $5.00 , very easy. Would definitely go back for a wonderful fine dining experience.
