“Gelato and Italian Home Cooking”
Review of Girasole Gelato Cafe - CLOSED

Girasole Gelato Cafe
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This gelato cafe offers much more than just gelato. Park behind the strip of stores if there isn't a spot out front on Palmetto Park. Yes, the gelato is really excellent! I had a dark chocolate that tasted like heaven! The owner, Anna, comes to Boca from Italy and lucky for us she brought her Italian home cooking expertise with her. We enjoyed the Capri Panini, warm crispy bread, wonderful fragrance of fresh basil, fresh tomato and mozzarella, so good! We can't wait to try the other panini selections. Anna also specializes in making lasagna, ravioli and manicotta. Her tomato sauce is delicious! Do you like eggplant parmesan? Well, you'll love it at this delightful Italian cafe. It isn't a heavy square brick like in some places. It's delicate and delicious! You know as soon as you slice into it, it's going to be special.
Even Anna's pastries are homemade. She also caters. This is a delightful, casual, clean establishment, great prices. Very pleasant, just simple, great homemade Italian Anitpasti, Panini, salads, pastries and of course gelato. Don't miss it. Remember, there is plenty of parking behind the strip of stores. My husband and I took some rice balls home with us. We'll be back again for sure! Open 7 days a week.

Home cooked Italian in a casual beach setting on Palmetto. Very good fresh comfort food and nice service. Anna, the owner, makes specials each night for dinner besides regular lunch menu......excellent panini and salads. Highly recommended for a change of pace from over the top Boca. Great desserts too.

The server and owner were so friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. The expresso divine and the gellato, the best I've ever had. Would definitely recommend you try it.

Friendly family atmosphere. One could be in Italy in a similar gelato shop in any beach community but Girasole is in Boca only a block and a half from the beach.

This restaurant is so clean and charming. A 1 minute walk down the street from South Beach pavilion, a great place to get a salad or sandwich made with authentic Italian food. I loved their smoked salmon. Then go back in the evening for cappuccino and gelato or pastries. Definitely a great find in Boca!
