From the outside the restaurant looked pretty good. Garlic bread was an awful start to the meal and it didnt get much better. The spinach and ricotta canelloni lacked any flavour. It made up for this by tasting of soap. Spagetti bolognese was uninspiring. Staff were very friendly and understanding when we sent the canelloni back. Pizza replacement needed some... More

Hidden in a concrete open-air food court, this is a delightful little Italian restaurant. Well cooked food went down well with a bottle of inexpensive wine.

Nice restaurant with good service. We had an enjoyable diner with our family of five persons. Four of us had tuna brochette as appetizer, which tasted good. We all had pizza as main course, which was really disappointing especially after the good reviews on trip advisor. The bottom of the pizza was good but the quantity of topping was minimal... More

After 6 months traveling outside Italy we were almost crying of joy when we tasted pizza. It is one of the best pizza we has tasted abroad and for sure it is the real italian pizza!! Thanks to Girasole to let us enjoy the flavors of our country!!

The food served comes really close to the food in italy, we had a delicious home made gnocchi for lunch and decided to come back two days later for diner. If you want to eat italian in chiang mai, this is a good place.

Me and my girlfriend ate here after smelling some delicious aromas as we left the restaurant, "hot chilli" the night before. We were not disappointed at all. We both had pasta, both meals were delicious and very reasonably priced (prices for mains ranging from 150-300). Would definitely visit again.

We were in Chiang mai for 3 nights in December last year.. we had most of our meals here in Girasole.. we r vegetarians, so we did not have many other options (we tried a few places but did not like any). Girasole had a lot of veg options. My favourite was pesto, we went back to their place almost... More

I liked sitting near the road, but the restaurant has also indoor dining if you prefer the air conditioning. I had the baked spinach dish, and it was lovely: good portion, not too much, not too little. I was tempted by many dishes on their menu, as it is quite extensive. The price was reasonable, and the drinks were very... More

After a bit too much of pad thai we felt like a taste of home and came here early one evening after reading about it on trip advisor. We opted for a pizza and pasta to share and we were not disappointed, the pizza base was hand made and the perfect thickness and the pasta was fresh and cooked to... More
