Reasonably priced meal- under 50 euros for two mains, two 'pichets' of wine, a brandy and a dessert; but yet again, another Rennes eatery which is disappointingly miserly with its seafood portions. My pasta dish contained two scallops and three prawns, and the rest of the plate was tagliatelle in a nondescript sauce. Nice atmosphere, akin to Pizza Express in... More

Very good Italian restaurant in the heart of Rennes. What I liked the most is the fact that I could order a completely customized vegetarian Pasta and the Chef prepared it according to my taste! Excellent presentation and reasonable rates. Very good ambiance and choice of food. A good place to unwind after a hard day's work

One night in Rennes, and this was close to our hotel (Novotel). Food and atmosphere was good, and service on a fairly busy Saturday night was very good. Food tasty and portions a good size. Mostly Italian food but covers other local favourites. Would strongly recommend, especially to anyone staying at the excellent nearby Novotel.

Il Basilico is located in the center of the city. Very cozy and warm place, with very tasty Italian plates. You should definitely taste Carbonara (the best I’ve ever eaten), while the starters are very tasty too. Apart from wines, it also provides a very nice local beer (cider).

I found the menu posted outside and it had prices similar to home but I could see the sizes were larger and with more interesting ingredients on the plates of the happy cusomers inside. There is a wide selection on the menu not only of pizza but other exciting options as well. i was not there to feast but to... More

Italiani alla larga! Probably one of the worst pizza I ate in my life. I waited about 1 hour to receive a pizza with vegetables and (garlic!) parsley full of oil: terrible and very heavy! Absolutely not a real Italian pizza, sorry! Maybe in another Country it can be good, but in Italy could not exist pizzeria like this. Pizza... More

My wife and I found this place walking out from our hotel. Very near the train station, on a street of several resturants. New, open, modern decor. Mid priced, we were attracted by couples and families eating and nice casual menu (pizza and more; in Canada I'd call it Fusion). Very fresh, well-presented. Very friendly waiter and staff (ie, the... More
