First off we went with a local business couple who made the reservations and know the owners and the restaurant. Girasole advertises that it specializes in meat dishes so I had expected something nice. Only when the waiter served my three dinner companions did he tell me that my grilled filet wasn't coming because the chef didn't like the look... More

Just off the centre a gem of a restaurant. Great value, full of locals. Try the tagliata. If you are travelling through the alps then stay at hotel mignon with easy parking and this restaurant is a 5/10 minute walk away in the pedestrian part of town. A great combination

We had the traditional puzzas and pastas and was all covered and ate well. The service was good especially as we didnt speak any italian and they didnt speak any english. Everything seemed to be great including the food. Well done

We visited here with a group of students from Valdosta State University - our sister city! LOTS of local flavor, especially featuring the local Fontina cheese. Delicious and affordable.

Nothing amazing but nice surroundings, good pizza and chips and pint! Kind waiters too willing to help out with information on the town. Would visit again.

We happened upon Il Girasole for lunch one day and have been back twice since. Nice and cosy place, the food is great and the prices reasonable. The staff is friendly, though a little distracted and confused when the place is bustling. We've had their pizza, the best we've had in Aosta. (See my review of the disappointing Ristorante Pizzeria... More

As we were wondering around and getting hungry, I asked a local ( in my broken Italian) where we could eat making sure it was were the locals went. We were pointed towards the direction of this small, friendly and value for money. Had some homemade pasta and my husband had spaghetti Milanese. For drinks local brewed wine. We truly... More

Took a while to get the waiter who spoke english. Service was OK maybe a bit disorganised. Pizzas OK, bit soggy in the middle but there are cheaper and better places.
