    Solid restaurant with good food. Loved the wine list and appetizers including the baked eggplant & carpaccio polpo. My husband had pasta which was perfectly cooked. I had the cod but it was over cooked and the cauliflower purée was cold which I didn’t expect or enjoy. It felt like my food sat for a while. My biggest complaint was they sat us at the table near the bar and this big group came in and filled the space between us. One of the group kept leaning against the chair at our table and tak

    It’s my wife’s favorite restaurant. We went there on our first date and have been going every since 10 years later. The food is ALWAYS excellent. Everything on the menu is amazing. Service is great as well. I recommend this place every chance I get. Even had the entire family out for dinner here during this summer. Love it.

    My favorite Italian restaurant by far, and for the quality of food, their prices can't be beat. The only comparable restaurant is Cafe 2825. I frequent both. Girasole's pasta dishes are superior. The staff is friendly and welcoming. My husband and I feel like family there. Consistently great food! Highly recommend.

    I've heard great things however disappointed overall starting with drinks. Beers were not listed on the menu. Coors Light was 7.25/bottle which is obscene. I asked about a $38 bottle of Pinot Noir and he shook his head. I'm unsure if they were out or he didn't recommend, I was steered to a $45 and $75 bottle (the 45 was delicious). Everything is a la carte so price adds up quickly. There was a push to add to the meal. No complaints about quality of food, portions are on the small side. Requested a table out of the way and ended up behind a large group which came after we were seated. For the money, there are better options in Atlantic City.

    So disappointed in our experience at Girasole. I convinced my best friend to go here, the food has always been excellent and it's a very nice place. Well...first they don't answer the phone so figuring out to park at Ocean Club, I was on my own. Second, during my trip to the bathroom, the seat actually slid off the toilet! This should have been when we left. I tend to judge restaurant kitchens by the restaurant bathroom. The state of one tends to predict the state of the other. I should have known. Third, when ordering, I asked if they could make the Chitarra with only the calamari, since I am allergic to shellfish. I was told this would not be a problem. When the dish arrived, after taking a few bites, I realized there was crab meat in my dish. I made the management aware and there was basically no reaction, no seriousness of the situation, they laughed it off and blamed the chef. We were charged for the meal that could have killed me and we left. Thankfully I only had a mild headache and itchy throat for the remainder of the night. I will never return to this restaurant, they are irresponsible and do not deserve my patronage. I went there one of their cheerleaders, calling them under-rated, over-looked. Not so now.

    I had high hopes for my first time visiting Girasole, but unfortunately the experience was so lackluster that it will also be my last. The food was bland and at times texturally off (the carbonara was clumpy and the chocolate mousse cake was gelatinous), which I could forgive, but the service left an even worse taste in my mouth. Our waiter was inattentive and spent more time gabbing at the bar with coworkers than taking care of the 2-3 tables he could have tended to with ease if he cared enough. Overall, I am wholly unimpressed and disappointed.

    From the moment we walked in, I found it unwelcoming. The hostess who may be the owner's wife took us to our table. No hello, no greeting. Our waitress was also not friendly and abrupt when my husband asked a question, I found both the waitress and hostess to be condescending. I will not go back.

    We were looking forward to visiting Girasole during the AC Restaurant Week. My husband has always raved about their Carpaccio and I mistakenly thought it was a choice on the Restaurant Week menu. We were not overwhelmed with our food choices. I had the Fried Calamari and Vegetables along with Branzino. The calamari was not remarkable in any way, the fried veggies had very little flavor, and the marinara was very thin and rather bland. The Branzino was okay. My husband enjoyed his Caesar Salad but he also ordered The Farfalle with Smoked Salmon. I have never tasted warm smoked salmon before and do not plan to try it again. The warming emphasized the saltiness of the smoked fish. It was not tasty. We decided that we should have ignored the Restaurant Week menu and simply ordered Carpaccio!
