Girasole, meaning “sunflower” in Italian, is a unique family restaurant in Pittsburgh blending old world charm with an innovative, modern menu.
Tough to get a table, even when you've got a reservation. Cozy and the food's decent.
Try the Mezza Rigatoni it's seasonal and absolutely amazing
Chicken special of the day so far has not didappointed
Great for dates. The chicken of the day has never let me down and the portions were generous. The ravioli portions, on the other hand, are not quite as large.
The spaghetti w/ corn, mozzarella & tomatoes is incredible. The flavor combination is good, but the dish is extremely garlicky. You'll be exhaling garlic for hours after eating it. But it's worth it.
The best food in all of Pittsburgh. My favorite restaurant by far. I've never ordered a single thing that wasn't enjoyable. Plus, get serenaded one on one by a fantastic Italian singer!
Excellent pasta fagiole ! All three of our entrees were outstanding. One pasta , one fish and one chicken. I don't think you can make a wrong choice. Very Good experience
Best place in the city.
Food is overrated. They are OK. So so so hot, and so so so loud. Not a romantic spot for sure!
They now have a liquor license with cocktail list so you can booze while you enjoy the best Italian food in Pittsburgh!
Really accommodating to small children! Ordered a kid sized penne for my 19 month old and they asked if we wanted it ASAP before our own food!
Always get the side salad.
They take "reservations" which don't guarantee you a table. But awesome food.
This small and charming restaurant offers the most authentic Italian food in all of Pittsburgh. Perfect for a date night or a get together with friends.- Mandy, Marketing Coordinator
The Mushroom soup is fantastic!!
Try the pumpkin ravioli when its in season, delicious!!
Very unorganized when busy. Be prepared for confusion and chaos
Try the daily specials. Service and food are great here.
Sauteed chicken breast with marsala & grilled beef fillet are delicious. Medium rare. Melts in your mouth. <3 risotto.
Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli!!!
Everything is always excellent here. Just be prepared for a wait during peak hours and a bouyant atmosphere. Not a quiet date spot but amazing food. BYOB & wine list available
Mezzo Rigatoni... Good stuff :)
If the ribeye is available, definitely get that. Well worth it.
