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.

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.

I think they are a ripoff. Their specials are completely overpriced. I question the integrity of the old staff. I feel sorry for the new staff.
The parking situation is stressful.
I will not be returning

Great restaurant. However small portions for the price. Great service by staff. Should provide “Free Valet Parking” as it was difficult to use pay to park on street or parking lot near restaurant

The food was well-prepared and very good however the service is awful. The restaurant is outdated, tables are wobbly, the staff is unorganized and the owner (elderly lady acting as a hostess) is incredibly rude. The bartenders will flat out ignore you. Would not recommend this place if you value service, however if you want a good tasting meal, you will find one here.

Friendly service. A bit warm inside. Very good cocktails. Food was very very good. One minor complaint was the table wasn't ready at our reserved time. We waited at the bar for close to half hour...did enjoy some delish cocktails there though.

I believe without hesitation that Girasole is the best Italian restaurant in AC and perhaps in all of South Jersey. It is relatively easy to make a reservation, the food is delicious and diverse in its variety and presentation. The wait staff is friendly and professional and the price points are very fair for the quantity of the food received, and finally, it is inviting and not pretentious. There is no place in AC which I would rather have Italian food than Girasole. Bon apertito!

Server was attentive but just couldnt keep up with the amount of diners and fewer staff - not her fault at all. Food was lacking in taste and quantity - shrimp appetizer only had 2 shrimps in it. Probably wont go back.

My boyfriend & I went on a Monday night and made a reservation for 730. Seemed a little busy for a Monday night, but there was plenty of open tables. We waited 30 mins to be sat. Once at the table waitress was great, very nice and accommodating. Lentil and pasta fagioli were great. Carpaccio salmon was overly seasoned with salt and drenched in oil I couldn’t even eat it. Main course was filet mignon with a raspberry sauce, excellent. My boyfriend had the gnocchi and it was superb. Bottle of Groth, Sauvignon blanc and tiramisu to end the night. Overall very good, but disappointed about the wait and carpaccio.

Hostess was verging on rude, terrible bus service (no bread, no water for 20-25 mins, no water refills unless requested from a waitress who had to find the bus girl). All courses had to be ordered together and and then we’re brought out before the course or dishes had been cleared from the previous course. Had a 7:00 pm reservation and weren’t seated until 7:35 in a table that was located right near the front door (the table was available when we arrived at 7, we figured we were waiting for a nicer “reserved” table- WRONG). Hostess and staff seemed more attentive to “regulars” and family. My guess is this is where most of the 5 star reviews come from. Food was good (tagliatelle was fresh -tasted homemade). Overall average- my guess is you can get similar quality food with much better service somewhere else.

Quick getaway with my daughter and her BFF for a great school year. This restaurant used to have a second place in Philly that I always wanted to go to but never had a chance. This was one of the best meals I’ve had in years! The girls loved it too. Service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back if we get the chance!!!

This is one of my favorite spots in Atlantic City. Fresh, classic Italian with an awesome menu, and great staff. You can get anything from homemade pizza to artisanal pasta to a fresh whole fish. All of the staff is extremely accommodating, and very friendly.

This place is excellent, top to bottom! Premier and knowledgeable service by servers that know care and take pride in this restaurant, food is prepared with the freshest, tastiest ingredients and spectacularly served in the dish with a gorgeous presentation. Old world Italian Family owned, operated and run. Reasonably priced homemade and gastronomic dishes where you definitely want to ask for more bread to wipe your plate clean! Every bit of the meal is edible and although a very nice portion, so delectable that you will enjoy finishing every last bite. Save room for their not to miss dessert, or if you’re too full, do not hesitate to bring your dessert home. This was my second visit and just when I thought things couldn’t get better, they really out did themselves on this visit of mine. Fabulous is an understatement, Girasole takes care of you and gets everything done right the first time. Perfection still exists, even post Covid. Look no further than this off the beaten track gem if you’re in Atlantic City! You will only be disappointed if you don’t go.
