Il Girasole in Wandsworth
Always love coming here. Great local restaurant. Food is amazing, home cooked Italian, relaxed family-style service and great value. The owners are also just lovely people!
Fantastic menu,well balanced and beautifully cooked and presented. This trattoria is a gem in Earlsfield,was very busy on Saturday evening,so book not to be disappointed.
Very friendly and helpful staff, gorgeous dishes and wine. We will be back, with friends.
Amazing Italian food and a great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend
Love this place. Great pizza and pasta and always a lovely specials board.
The tortellini with Umbrian sausage was superb and everything else was cooked to perfection. The impression given was that they were rightly proud of their food where even the simplest dish was special. We had an excellent Chianti and the basic grappa was smooth and delicious. Service was swift and friendly.
Overall as god as ever, everyone we have taken, or recommended, here has always had a very good time. On this occasion if I really want to be fussy then I might take issue with the choice of music (a bit more thumping modern Italian than the pleasant melodies that usually accompany conversation) and a young waitress who was a little disorganised. But these pedantic comments must not put you off enjoying this great place.
Great service, great food and a great atmosphere! Lovely little gem in Wandsworth
I love Il Girasole- I have been time and time again and always enjoyed it. The pasta with sausage and truffle is my absolute favourite, I always recommend to friends. Please put back the chocolate fondant dessert on the menu :)
Lovely local Italian in Earlsfield.
Delicious menu and we will return.
Always love it here. Great little local. Best pizza and pasta you will find. Amazing value for money too. Try the Barbera - superb.
This is a great little restaurant serving proper Italian cuisine. Always love coming here. Only thing is the service isn't great. I had to call someone over about drinks and to ask for water and noone came over to ask how our food was the last time I went. There only ever seems to be one waitress attending to everyone.
In spite of this would definitely recommend this place as quality of food and atmosphere makes up for it.
Wonderful food and broad menu, extremely accommodating staff! We were going to be given the last batch of a vegetable side, but the chef/owner went out of his way to whip us a salad up instead as he deemed the veggies not good enough! Lovely ambience, nice and relaxed, felt like we were back in Italy!
Great food and sizing flavours! It doesn’t get much better.
Delicious food, and a very warm welcome. Attentive service and great ambience. We’ll be back!
Fantastic meal and service.
Comes recommended and will be going back
amazing restaurant, such a hidden gem! I will be going back again and again. Staff are amazing too and the atmosphere was great!
Nice little local Italian, great pasta, nice service.
Wandsworth’s little gem. Fabulous place.
A wonderful night with the most charming of hosts and delicious food in an authentic atmosphere. Thanks so much for your generous hospitality.
I love Il Girasole, I have been 10+ times in the past year- the umbrian truffle, mushroom and sausage pasta is amazing and good value. Very rustic, relaxed vibe.
Good local trattoria. Fair prices on wine are notable.
Always a delight. Tasty, fresh-tasting, filling; and kind staff too. The sausage, mushroom and truffle pasta is to die for.
Lovely atmosphere and staff - and good food. But, I think, pretty overpriced for a neighbourhood restaurant :(
Very pleasant trattoria in Wandsworth. Very honest, delicious cooking at reasonable prices. Wine also fairly priced for a restaurant.
We met up with friends and had a wonderful time, great staff, great place. Will be back again.
an enjoyable casual evening, food tasty and the service good.
Lovely little restaurant - smelt good as soon as we walked through the door. My calamari was so fresh, then I had sea bream which was delicious. My daughter and husband had huge tasty pizzas they struggled to finish. They also have different types of Italian after dinner liqueurs - which made a change from only limoncello (though I love that too). Would definitely recommend.
Il Girasole is the classic 'local gem' restaurant. I'd heard about from a friend after I moved into the area and finally got around to checking it out last Saturday night. I shouldn't have waited so long! It was everything you expect from a local unpretentious Italian trattoria. We shared a pizza and creamy truffle ravioli dish. Both were excellent. Nice crisp base with the right amount of toppings (not dripping with sauce and clods of cheese!). The truffle ravioli was also top notch. Rich and creamy without being over the top and cloying. With a nice bottle of wine we were in and out in an hour for around £50. Happy fast service to boot. After this visit I can see why this place is relentlessly popular with locals. I'll be back.
Lovely food great service good value for the money.
A very disappointing meal, we have been before and the food was outstanding. This time round took a guest out but the food was badly burnt, the roasted potatoes was pre cooked and badly burnt, pizza was underdone and shop quality.
We've been coming to this restaurant for three years as we used to live down the road and it's our absolute favourite. We now live half an hour away and still come when we can. The food is fantastic, the service so homely and friendly and the atmosphere is great. Little gem in Wandsworth.
Delicious, italian food as always! Healthy portion sizes, friendly staff, overall great experience.
An excellent and delightful restaurant with very good food served by friendly and helpful staff. It is always a pleasure to go there and although we keep it for special occasions it has encouraged us to label more events in that way.
One of my locals that I love. Only issue on Friday night was that it was so hot. Food and service superb as always and had a pasta dish with truffle I have not had before which was divine. Despite the size of the pizzas or friend's kids managed to make it through!!
The food was absolutely superb. The service was fantastic. We can't wait to go there again.
We love Il Girasolle ! It’s a local favourite . The food is always wonderful and very seasonal . Often you find things you wouldn’t in other Italian restaurants . The staff are wonderful and very friendly . Having spent a lot of time in Italy we think the good here is very authentic !
Nice evening meal in a local family run restaurant. Slightly cramped but added to atmosphere. Good local find in Wandsworth, away from the usual chains
A great night at our local italian restaurant, Il Girasole - I booked here for my wife’s birthday. The food was delicious (remember the pasta portions are traditional italian style entrée size, not a full main!). The staff didn’t do anything out of the ordinary for the special occasion - perhaps call in advance rather than just mentioning it on the booking email if you want to make sure a fuss is made. A lovely date night nonetheless.
Nice local Italian staff charming. Food very good and reasonably priced. the only negative would be that service was a little slow but that’s what you get for good fresh food.
Mixed calamari frutti very good and large portion - my special of stuffed calamari was again quite large portion but it went well with a lighter lentil salad - my husband was pleased with his linguini with crab and asparagus. Too full for dessert.
Would like to try the pizza on my
