We were in Sorrento for two nights, one of which was our 25 th wedding anniversary. We asked a local shopkeeper to recommend a good restaurant and were told La Basilica. Being mid- week and the middle of winter, it wasn't very busy. We were waited on by very attentive wait staff who kindly did their best to understand our... More

We had lunch there on our last day in Sorrento. Welcoming staff, spacious restaurant, a very varied menu, with a free tasty pasta starter. Good main course followed by Tiramisu. The large wall paintings were rather tasteless - mainly of Vesuvius - too colourful and unrealistic.

Visiting this restaurant for dinner with my family, we were quite disappointed. The food was okay-average. There was a guitarist serenading with old-fashioned, cheesy Italian songs such as "that's amore" who was overbearing. The service was good, however the price was outrageous, about double what we would usually pay for our family dinner in Italy, even in tourist spots such... More

Many Italian restaurants close in the afternoon between 2 and 7. (Italians tend to eat later than Americans.) La Basilica remains open all afternoon and the food was simply delicious! It is easy to find, just a block off the main square, Piazza Tasso. After traveling overnight from the States, we wanted an early dinner that would not be too... More

We liked it - the food was good, the staff were helpful and spoke English well. It was fun to experience a big holiday meal as a cultural outsider.

Great food and service! Friendly staff and one of the best pizzas we had in Italy. I especially appreciated they did not include cover charge - the only place with no cover charge during my 9 day stay in Italy. Great food, service and price - what else could anyone ask for?

I read some other reviews of this restaurant and I have to agree - this is definitely a hidden treasure! Our hotel didn't recommend this restaurant - we had walked by it in the day and thought it looked better than the one that they had recommended - I was thrilled that we went with this restaurant! Everything was incredible!... More

I am reluctant to provide this excellent review because the resturant is a hidden treasure. It was recommended by a local who knows the owner. When we entered the resturant and asked for Paulo the owner we were immediately treated as family. The owner waited on us. We had a perseco and a salad on the house. The food was... More

On our recent vacation in Italy, we sampled food in Rome, Venice and Florence. But, I must say that we had the BEST Italian food at La Basilica in Sorrento, Italy. This was not a fusion restaurant. Every dish we tried for three dinners was superb. The homemade ravioli and cannelloni pasta sat in a rich tomato sauce garnished with... More
