On a 2 week cycling trip, where we ate out every night, the home made ravioli here, was the best we had anywhere. Other than that the rest of food served was excellent, service was good and so was atmosphere. Altogether a very nice restaurant serving great food, good wine (obviously) and very good value for money.

Our very kind hotel owners referred to their friend Flavio. You can sit downstairs where they also sell their famous raviolis and local wines, but the main restaurant area is upstairs. The ravioli with ragu was excellent, the risotto was cooked perfect 'al dente' though taste of broth was just good. The beef dishes (grilled and carpaccio style) were very... More

We have driven to Gavi several times for pranzo and tried several restaurants there and Girasole stands out as superior to the rest. Best ravioli ever - both in wine sauce and beer sauce, each so good it's a challenge to decide which to order. The lunch is €15 for l'acqua, delicious grissini, primi , secondo ( which comes with...

In Gavi - a place famous for great wines - il Girasole is a small, but nice place. It is a family-run restaurant. Menu not large, but everything is prepared with great attention for detail. Raviolis are unforgettable...and, it goes without saying great wines. A place for people with taste.

And the food, local cuisine, was terrific! O, and one more thing; go for a dessert! I had a Bunet (some... More

Simple, seasonal and typical to the region. Not a huge choice on the Menu, but well thought out. Quick efficient staff, very Italian, you can tell it's good because it was full up with the locals enjoying a family Sunday outing. Warm, stylish, relaxing, clean everything you need. Most importantly no hidden extras - you could actually have first and... More

The restaurant is cozy. The menu is limited to few dishes. This makes life easier...... Food is well prepared using good quality ingredients. You remain satisfied without the feeling of heaviness when low quality or reused oil and ingredients are used. Wine selection is good. Highly recommended.
