Girasole - Bound Brook, NJ

My girlfriend turned me on to this Italian is definitely a hidden gem. Best Italian food I've had in central NJ, and the service is bar none.

Atmosphere is great. Small and cozy, almost homecookingy. I've been there three times now, and only had one "eh" experience with a afterwork Christmas party that were a little loud, but that was almost immediately taken care of. The specials are amazing, and the owner is always around.

never had a bad experience. Anyone else been there?

  1. I haven't eaten there yet, but I have close friends who continuously rave about the place. I have GOT to try it.

    1. I agree. Some of the best Italian food in the area. BYO as well. But hidden - not so much. Usually packed on the weekends with definite reservations necessary. And yes, with tile flooring - could get loud sometimes, but not unbearable. We go during the week and it's usually kept down to a dull roar.
