I'm only sorry that I didn't look up the reviews of Girasole before I went. As a Philadelphian, I didn't even think to look up a spot in my hometown, and years ago, this place was a winner. But last night, we had the ultimate disappointment. We had ticket for the orchestra at 8 pm, had a reservation at 6... More

We had dinner on Saturday November 26. Food wasn't good. Salad soggy, fish bland and expensive, soup poor. Other items not good. My gf said she will never return. Prices similar to most other center city restaurants. Service slow. All around pretty bad experience !

We came for dinner on a weeknight evening. The place was very quiet - maybe six tables plus a few at the bar. There was one waiter serving the entire restaurant and bar.(He did a very good job, considering.) The Chianti by the glass was very rough. The special soup was not as good as my own and I'm not...

Dropped in for an early dinner on a Thursday. The staff was most welcoming and let us pick where we wished to be seated. They offer a very enticing three course prix fixe dinner. Nice selection in each of the sections of the menu.

Over the last few years I have dined periodically at Girasole. I always liked it because of its quaintness...and because it is not a large restaurant. In recent years they have started to offer a Fix Prie menu (at least on the weekends) and the choices are really quite splendid. I loved the Carpaccio Parmesiano and the Beet Salad as... More

Well, let's start on the positive side and say that the food is excellent. However, this restaurant needs to get rid of the sleazy waiter who duped us by offering a Gabbiano Chianti in place of the Antinori Peppoli Chianti I ordered claiming that they did not have the Peppoli and the Gabbiano was "better" than the Antinori (not; I...

They are from Naples, they know their job, they are friendly and nice - and they offer the best Espresso in town, really like in Naples, with hot cup. Just perfect. Good food, although not exceptional, but fresh and tasty.

We visited friends in the building that the restaurant is in and she just had surgery on her foot. We had other reservations, however, this was easier for her to get around. We were in a pinch!The menu states some of the pasta is freshly made and it was nice you could mix and match the pasta with the sauces,... More
