Girasole Ristorante Ratings and Reviews

A local told us about Girasole, and we were extremely grateful for the recommendation! The whole dining experience was fantastic. I was there with a friend--my husband might have found it to be too pricey--but it was perfect for our celebration of her birthday. I am picky about Italian food and was very impressed with this place. It had a lot of different types of food, and some uncommon combinations, and everything was done very well. I look forward to going again when I get back to Atlantic City.

We were seated almost 1/2 hour after our reservation time. Waiter came immediately and took drink order. Drinks arrived. Dinner order was taken and it was almost 35 minutes before we received our salad and then almost another 35 minutes for our meal. I think a 2 1/2 hour dining experience is great, but not with this restaurant. It was as almost we didn't exist.
This restaurant is better off season. They can't handle a full compliment of diners.

Great menu. Service very good. Must be doing something right, we constantly heard servers recognize patrons, so people seem to come back quite often. Definitely go with a reservation. It was my first time there and did not know what to expect. On the outside looking in the prices seem high but I think they are fair given the quality of service and food.

Expected more after seeing a review in new jersey monthly, but was not impressed by the food or restaurant. Risotto was little more than basic rice with sauce, not creamy or particularly tasty. Side dishes were so so, such as brussels sprouts. Its basic strip mall fare, not worthy of a special trip or at the prices charged.

We were taken within a few minutes. Very small bar area if you're waiting for a table. It was very loud most of the evening. Our waiter had to shout out the specials and we had to talk very loud just to converse with our friends. Food was delicious! Pastas are home made and the red sauce was just like Sunday gravy! Tropical salad and heirloom tomatoes salad special were also very good.

Food was excellent; liked the ability to try 3 different pasta dishes as one portion. Love the décor. Our server (Francesca) was very congenial & accommodating, as we changed a few things. Noise level very high. Difficult parking, but would go back.

The pasta is superb. Fresh. Perfectly cooked. We tried 3 types and loved them all. I loved the.decor and the overall vibe as well. I have one complaint. We came for happy hour to try a few items before dinner. They were no longer serving literally a thirs of the items listed on their happy hour small plates menu. How hard is it to create new online and in house menus?? 3 things we wanted weren't offered. No mini meatballs.....soooo diappointed.

Was seated close to 10 pm for a 9:15 reservation and wasn't served dinner until close to 11. Was so excited to share fireside with friends but by the time we ordered no one was too hungry. They were nice enough to give us a free round of drinks.

First off I must say that the food was good but we arrived at 7:20 for a 7:30 reservation. Was told the table would be just a few minutes but we were not seated till 7:50. After that the service was very slow. That is my main complaint. We had 3 courses and the dinner took until 10:30. Would I go back, probably not. The good food is the only reason I gave it 3 stars overall.

This is definitely one of our favorite spots in South Jersey.
The food is authentic, always fresh and made to order, and presented beautifully.
And, the staff and servers are all professional, welcoming, and attentive.
After making several trips to various spots in Italy, including throughout Tuscany last year, we have found no other Italian restaurant with more authentic food.
We have been coming here for years and bringing our friends, and will continue to do so.

The authentic food will always be the best part about Girasole. For the second time that we've ever dined with them, my date and I decided to order the same dishes from appetizer to dessert that we fell in love with during our first visit to the restaurant. There's no denying that the romantic atmosphere and wonderful service attribute to an overall excellent dining experience.

As always Girasole continues to be consistent and good. The salmon is awesome, the bracciol was excellent as were the gnocchis, the only eh thing was the bolognese, the pasta was a bit too al dente, meaning too hard. I like al dente but it was par cooked. Great waiter, lovely atmosphere.

Was here during the winter and it was dark but this time daylight and the Resturant is very worn.
Service was just ok could be more attention to details.
Food was very good except ceasars salad not good at all. Bad dressing and should consider representing.
Not sure if I would go back again quickly. Maybe long term

We have dined there on many occasions and never had any problems. Upon hearing we had made a reservation with Open Table, they gave us a hard time. They said they didn't have the reservation, though we saw it on the screen. She said they always have problems with OT. Then the hostess said something about wanting points. I told her I didn't make the reservation for the points, but when I saw the Open Table link was on website, I thought it was convenient. Had to wait almost an hour for a table, and the table had to be one of the least favorable there. We have recommended Girasole to many people in the past, but unfortunately will not be doing that anymore.

I went for dinner on a Sunday night with a reservation and was sat immediately. Dinner was fabulous, prix fix dinner was perfect and their homemade gnocchi was to die for. I will return again when we are in the area.

Superb Italian food in a wonderfull dining room......after a few sips of wine and the food one feels as if sitting in the heart of Milan........our server was a wonderfull young lady from Bulgaria who made the evening most enjoyable for us and our friends from New York. They thought as good as any place in New York.

My husband and I went to Girasole for our 5th wedding anniversary. We found it via an Internet search and knew nothing about it before. It was a wonderful meal. We ordered the pasta fagioli, spinach ravioli and spaghetti carbonara and it was some of the best Italian food we have had. There was also an interesting outdoor/greenhouse area, though we did not sit there. They even gave us free flan in honor of our anniversary. Waiters and manager were very friendly. The only negative was that they did not give a substantial wine pour. Also, the decor, though it was beautiful, reminded me more of a Greek restaurant than an Italian one. Overall, however, a great evening and I would recommend it.

Excellent Italian dining experience. It was my first time in Atlantic City with my girlfriend. Of course I needed to pick out a great meal in the area. I am very picky when it comes to food and a great dining experience. Girasole Ristorante did not disappoint. Had formaggio cheeses and carpacio to start with a truffle oil. Simply delicious with a wine and Focaccia bread. Then I had the veal Milanese and my girlfriend had the pollo entre. I would recommend this restaurant and the plates we had. Bon appetite
