If you want to ruin your Saturday night out, this is certainly a place for you! I went there with my partner and our three kids for what we assumed to be a quick pizza meal. We booked for 21:00, a lateish meal after visiting Xmas markets. First unpleasant surprise upon our arrival - no table for us. We had... More

Got a deliveroo delivery from Il Girasole - and it was excellent. Lasagne, pizza, penne arrbiata all arrived piping hot and very tasty. Then there was the tiramisu. Just like nana used to make, only in bigger portions!

The owners are very friendly and so is the staff of this restaurant. The decor is not really cosy and the lightning too bright. Food is absolutely delicious and by far the best Italian in Strasbourg!!!! Definitely worth a visit!

The staff was extremely friendly and I found that I was able to communicate much easier with my broken Italian than French. The pizza was delicious as was the pasta. We felt it was very reasonably priced and the place is very clean and inviting. Would definitely recommend to others.

Although this Italian eatery has a good reputation in Strasbourg and its chef/owner seems apt at self-promotion of the Italianicity of the locale, its pizza didn't stand my personal litmus test. As the son of Italian immigrants, I at least know what good pizza should taste like even if I don't know how to make it. That said, this pizzeria/restaurant... More

We spend the 14 of March in Strasbourg and felt by hazard on it (12, quai St. Nicolas). We did not regret. The suggestions we had, Tagliatelle with lobster (26,50 Euros) and tagliatelle with octopus (16,50.-)were delicious. I was a little bit sceptic when ordering but the result was great: pasta just al dente, but not too much, big portion... More

Forget about Italian food The Girasole is a fake Italian restaurant but the owner mr Matteo Unfortunately even if the Director was a good guy, professional, and the overall presentation was good, the food was an offence to Italian food! Miles far away from a decent Italian food! Tagliatelle ai funghi porcini to be forgotten! Untasteful, poor quality raw ingredients....high... More
