Girasole has closed.......finally..........the owner who offended so many is gone. When I was told this, I called and the female voice on the voice mail said that she was opening a new restaurant with a different name in that space in September.

Quiet, pleasant surroundings. We ordered two of the specials without asking the price. When we got the check, a halibut steak was $38.00 and a fileted chichen parmesan was $28.00. Both were overpriced.

The owner is a fabulous guy who has made THE neighborhood haunt. Fantastic menu and the food and wine are always great. Sure it's a local place but whenever I take out of towners., they love the place and ask to come back.
