Girasole Ristorante Ratings and Reviews

This was my second time at Girasole and it was again, incredible. The waiter was super friendly, answered all of our questions and really made us feel welcomed. The atmosphere is incredible and the food is even better. Such a fresh taste! I would come back again and again and definitely recommend Girasole to everyone in need of a good restaurant in AC. Thank you!

This was our second visit, this time for our 32nd Wedding Anniversary. My wife had the Black pasta with lump crab., Spaghettini Neri, absolutely perfect. I had the 10 oz Filet Mignon special with peppercorn sauce; cooked perfectly, delicious! A side of asparagus with smoked speck cream, also perfectly cooked. (...and the bread is crazy-tasty.)
Definitely recommend and will return, without question.

Delicious food but my eggplant appetizer was warm at best. Pasta dishes was delicious but should have been served as a separate course rather than with entree. Sirloin entree was delicious but again barely warm. Our food was likely sitting for awhile before being brought to table. Ordered a second glass of wine for entree which arrived after I finished my entree and then ordered homemade Limon cello which I cancelled since we had completed dessert and were ready to leave. Just expected better service for dropping $200.

We loved the food! Service was very good with efficient servers. As the place filled it became very loud and our meaningful conversation ceased. Don't know if we'd go back, as soon as you leave the streets aren't so friendly. Not the restaurant's fault, I know but it detracts from the experience. Be prepared so spend some $$ as it isn't cheap but you get what you pay for.

I've been going o Girasole for years. This is truly a family run place with memorable food. The Branzino and the hand made fire oven pizzas are phenomenal. When you dine there it feels like eating with family between Carmine, Susie, and all the rest of the family, it's the next best thing from eating at home. Can't be beat! If you go to the Casinos, leave the venue and go to Girasole. You will not be disappointed.

I have been taking my wife here on date night once every month or two for the past several years. We have dined in many Italian restaurants in both the USA and in Italy and Girasole AC is one of the very best. Their menu is diverse and creative and offers appetizers and entrees that are different from what you'll find in 90 percent of the Italian restaurants in New Jersey and Philadelphia. Their octopus appetizer is extraordinary as is the branzino baked in encrusted salt. Their "al neri" black pasta with lump crab is unforgettable in taste as well. Although the service can be somewhat slow, the food always is brought to the table hot and perfectly prepared. This is a culinary gem that once experienced will be returned to again and again.

The food was absolutely delicious! The restaurant atmosphere is loud, but it felt romantic and cozy. The noise did not bother me or my husband during dinner! The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable of menu! This is a great family owned restaurant!

It was a terrible experience. My reservation was for 6:45 p.m. and it took 10 minutes to seat us. We did not get our food until 8:30 p.m. I ordered the rivoli and my boyfriend ordered the salmon. It should not take almost two hours to receive our food. The restaurant was not crowded where the kitchen could have been that slow to prepare our food. It was too long of a wait for our food. This was an extreme disappointment and I would not recommend this place to any of my friends.

My husband and I shared a pasta, an appetizer and a pizza. All were excellent. This is Italian dining and service at its best. That is, Italian and not Italian American. The menu is varied and creative. The small crispy pizzas with inventive toppings are my favorite.

Our salmon prix fixe dinner was very good. Would definitely recommend it. The carpacio was excellent! The bread basket left a lot to be desired -- four hunks of standard bread; two end pieces, lukewarm. Dipping sauce was plain olive oil, no seasonings.

I wish I knew our waitress' name because she was awesome. She was a petite blonde with somewhat of an accent. She was spot on with our recommendations and very welcoming, even invited us back for Happy Hour. My best friend and I were long overdue for a dinner so we came here. Ordered the sausage/broccoli rabe/cannellini bean app, spaghetti neri (black spaghetti with crab meat), and the special sea bass that's was encrusted with salt and fileted at our table. Best meal we have had in a long time and we will definitely come back. Thanks for an amazing meal!!!!

Celebrated ours and my daughters anniversaries there last week and it was amazing! Great wine selection and amazing entrees. We didn't try the appetizers but did spring for dessert and coffee which were all amazing! Beautiful atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely go back!

I wasn't that impressed. I thought the portions were quite small for the price. The filet mignon was $44.00 for an 8oz piece and that was all you got.
We had a reservation and still waited 25 minutes. It wasn't worth the hype at all. There are many better places in Atlantic City.

As always loved the food
But again we were seated at 9:45 for an 8:45 reservations
Never offered apology drink or desert
Third time this summer with hour or more wait with no comfortable place to stand nowhere to sit
Owner and manager wandered around all night but took no interest in us and said nothing
There were kisses and hugs but not for us
We have returned repeatedly because the food is so good but I think the rudeness and lack of care has won

Our reservation was for 6:45, they sat us at 7:45. We didn't get our meal until 8:30. They definitely overbooked. Atmosphere was way too loud. Surrounding tables were complaining also. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

The food was very good, I have nothing to criticize about what anyone in my group ate. I had the Bronzino and it was delicious. Here are my complaints, however: They were out of things on the menu and we were not informed of that ahead of time. We placed our order and the waiter went to the kitchen. He came back a bit later to tell us that 3 of the 4 of us had to change our salad/entree. One of the appetizer specials was an heirloom salad with cheese . The size of this salad was not large at all, and the tomatoes weren't even heirloom. When we got the bill, we saw that this salad was $22! Outrageous. All of the other salads on the menu were $12-15. When we complained, the waiter said, that he agreed the charge was too high and that he mentioned it to his boss earlier in the day . What was the point in that? No one apologized or discounted our bill.

This was my fourth visit, but first time on a Saturday night. The noise level was uncomfortable. We would have eaten in the outside room but the humidity was too high. Most of the food was very good; Caesar salad was disappointing.

We loved Everything! Fried calamari, cheese plate and the special salad with figs were all excellent. My husband had the bronzino which he said "it was the best bronzino he ever had. I shared the "pasta trio for two" with my sister. I loved all of them. You get to choose what three from any pastas on the menu, I love that idea. Wine list was good and prices are good. Can't wait to go back. Waitress Francesca lovely.

A fine staple in Atlantic City. The menu is full of wonderful options. The carpacios are so delicious. The pastas are light. We opted for the sampler which was a great choice. The pizzas are made in front of you and are upscale. Their salads are excellent.

From start to finish, the whole experience was fantastic! All employees, including the owner, were hospitable and willing to make our dining the best night EVER! The food was outstanding ! The desserts were just as good! They made us feel special! Great night had by all!
