Looking at tripadvisor for a great place for a panini and couldn't find the spot I wanted to go to and ran into this lovely little gem! It is a one woman shop, she is a happy little lady! I ordered the #6 and she informed me it was too hot and that salami was not as good, but not to worry, she will make me something better! Almost like watching your great aunt buzzing around her tiny kitchen, she chats away with you while making your panini. It was absolutely amazing!
The panini came hot with amazing brea that had a slight hint of salt which went great with the tomato. She came around and chatted with everyone and informed me she closes Friday (August 5th til September) I will definitely make my way back before they close in two days! I highly recommend, great local spot for those who dont want to fight a crowd and enjoy a true Italian experience! Treated just like family.

We had a lovely meal and wonderful conversation with Francesco at Il Girasole. It was a very cool evening, and the restaurant was warm and inviting. I had a wonderful pasta, recommended by Francesco our waiter, of green and white linguine with mushrooms and bacon. The other hit of the evening was an eggplant with tomato sauce, perfectly cooked. We were less successful with the pizza and the rack of lamb, but the desserts were terrific, and Francesco engaged us in very entertaining conversations re we discussed the ills of the world and how we think they should be addressed. It was not just a lovely meal, it was a lovely evening, and we highly recommend it.

Relaxed here for a couple hours with Chianti, bubbly-crusted pizza and long chats with the friendly son of the owner. Bean soup and desserts were home made and very good.
