Amazing food. Only complaint is that they charged us for dessert when it was supposed to be part of the Restaurant Week deal and we didn't notice. Probably an honest mistake, but the food was worth it anyway. Definitely one of the best kept secrets of AC.
Came here for the restaurant week lunch and we were very happy with the food. In addition to the prix fixe, we added the filet carpaccio; it was delicious and paired well with the sparkling rose (didn’t think to look at the name, it’s on their glass list). By the time dessert arrived, they had run out of the chocolate mousse and we were served a cheesecake instead. It was a complete miss. While we wish the pasta was house made (they use dried), we will be back!
Food just ok service very slow!
My favorite restaurant made even better during restaurant week. Amazing lunch deal. Awesome eggplant/zucchini appetizer, the BEST pizza in Atlantic City, made the old world Napoli way in a Neapolitan oven and a decadent chocolate mousse. If coming for dinner get the branzino! Always fantastic.
We were there for restaurant week
It was great meal for a great price
We had a fabulous mean at lunch during Restaurant Week. The weather outside was horrific, but coming into Girasole was like having someone waiting with a warm blanket and great food. All of us raved and just loved it. We’ll be back.
AC Restaurant Week must !!!!
Real Italian food, enjoyed very bite. I was here a couple times with different friends. I ordered different kind of food from the menu, to my surprise, the food was very tasty and authentic, not an ordinary American Italian food. It's a rare gem in AC, much better then Casino owned restaurants.
I had reservations for 7:00, we did not get seated until 7:40. The staff kept telling us “five minutes, five more minutes” for the 40 minutes we waited. Once we sat, the staff was quick in pouring our water glasses but a couple of us had asked for other drinks (some not even alcoholic), we waited about another 15 minutes for them because they forgot about our drinks. Once we started ordering from the restaurant week menu,this was about a half hour after actually being seated at this point, two out of the six of us dining we’re going to get the Gamberoni (jumbo shrimp with pesto and some sides), which we were informed that they ran out. It is the first day of restaurant week, how do you run out of jumbo shrimp number one, and number two, why were we not notified about that when we were seated? So the two of us had to scramble and figure out what else we were going to have for dinner. Appetizers were good, I had to wait about 5 minutes longer than everyone else to get mine. But they were good. Same thing happened with my dinner, everyone else at the table got their food besides me. Dinner was decent, portions were small I think but I come from an Italian family where portions are always big enough to have left overs. There were no left overs taken home with us. Dessert was awful, the cream puffs were okay, I was supposed to get creme brûlée, I got something that reminded me of stiff milk with blue berries on top. I didn’t even eat it it was so disgusting. Mind you we waited about another 20 minutes for our coffee and desserts and they weren’t even worth the wait. As we were walking about another table was getting served the creme brûlée and that actually looked good, I was disappointed that I didn’t get that since I ordered it. I should’ve said something to the waiter but at that point we were all over dinner and wanted to go home. Will I go back again, no. Am I happy that I paid restaurant week price for the food we received, yes; because I wouldn’t pay full price.
We attended for Restaurant Week to try out a new restaurant.
Food was excellent.
Service was superior.
Ambience was perfect.
We are going back at some point for more!!!
Had a nice evening.
Great food, great atmosphere.
The restaurant is beautifully appointed with Versace upholstery on chairs and Versace
artifacts throughout the restaurant. The food is excellent and creative. The delectable Pasta Neri, for example, is composed of squid ink pasta with artichokes and lump crab meat in a white wine sauce. There is a large variety of homemade pastas with a variety of sauces, ranging from
traditional Italian sauces to original offerings like the one mentioned above. The blood orange
margarita is exquisite. One of our company said that the chocolate martini was the best she'd
Both the food and service were excellent. The pasta is homemade and delicious and my girlfriend raved about the lamb chops. We now have a new restaurant added to our "go to" spot for AC.
Best Italian restaurant in Atlantic City. Service always friendly and excellent. Great ambience. The Branzino is amazing - a must have at least one in your life. Also the best pizza in town is here. Made the same way as in Naples, Italy. Other standouts are the Pappardelle con funghi and the melanzane e zucchini which is a spectacular appetizer.
The food is always great!!
You must try the bronzino and the Brussel sprouts!!!
The best main course in AC-salt encrusted Bronzino
I brought my boyfriend to Girasole for his 25th birthday, as per my parent's recommendation, and had an absolutely wonderful time there from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The food was divine, and we really enjoyed taking our time to appreciate all of the fine details that Girasole has to offer. For sure one of AC's hidden gems! 10/10 would recommend!
Overall, very nice restaurant. Prompt courteous service. Frittura Mista was a generous portion and very good. Brick oven pizza was very good, but a little burned underneath. The red sauce was on the Gnocchi e braciola was too acidyi. Sliced black angus sirloin with arugula was very good. The desserts were very disappointing. We had the Italian ricotta cheesecake and bluberry panna cotta.
Had dinner there for the first time.
Great service and wonderful food in a pretty setting.
Met a friend for dinner. Incredible wine suggested and delicious Halibut special. I will be back soon. Gabriella our waitress was lovely and very informative -wine and food!
Remind me of dinning in southern Italy, especially near Naples
Love love this restaurant. Definetly worth the trip!! Great food, service and ambiance.
Very good as always. Been going there for some time now and never had a bad meal, EVER!!!
Yes, I would go back, Yes, I would recommend to anyone looking for a great meal.
Our meal with our family wad most enjoyable. The only disappointment was my daughter's order of seafood & orzo. It was not orzo it was regular rice .. such as Uncle Ben's.
Food was excellent, accommodations superb & the service was outstanding!
Walter was awful and lacked professionalism.
Ordered drinks for another table as a gift. We were charged for the drinks but they were never delivered. Will not be going back!
The food was excellent and they were very accommodating to a food allergy.
Authentic Italian cuisine.
Excellent food in an elegant setting. Looking forward to returning for another meal.
Excellent service. The food was amazingly delious!
Great meal! We had to change our Christmas Eve reservation from 4 to 5 and they accommodated. All five of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The gnocchi was outstanding!!! Will definitely be back!
High quality Italian food. Squid ink crab pasta was amazing. Nice decor.
It was amazing as usual
Best food in A.C. hands down. Ingredients very fresh and cooked to perfection. Wait staff very attentive. They have a nice happy hour with small plates available but we came for dinner. The ambiance is beautiful and makes you feel you are in a garden in Italy. You won't be disappointed, this place is a gem.
The sauce had a burnt taste to it.
I had the spaghetti with shrimp
Crab, which was not much. And calmeri. My husband had the meatball and sausage. It also had a burnt taste. The bread was good but they only gave us olivr oil and no seasoning. The price was not on par for other places. It was extremely expensive. No parking and I mention to the waiter it was our anniversary and he did not respond or wish us a happy anniversary.
Former New Jersians now living in San Diego, Girasole is always must visit when in the area. The food is authentic and always a family pleaser. Love the eggplant and zucchini Parmesan, the ravioli verde, broccoli di rabe, vegetable based soups. Service is friendly and professional the Versace inspired decor is unique. Love dining at Girasole. Well done and Gracie!
We had a fantastic dining experience at our recent trip to Girasole. As a first time diner there, we were impressed by the quality of food. We enjoyed the fresh pastas and wood-fired pizza. Cocktails were well made - and we opted to bring wine for a small corkage fee. Would definitely go back!
Always perfect in every way. Service, food and great energy. Happy experience every time.
Pleasantly surprised with everything....greeting by host, service, ambiance, beverages and meal! Everything was perfect!
This was the best Italian food I have ever had at a restaurant in the US!!! Outstanding!
