One of my favourites in Basel

This is the restaurant that first comes to my mind when people ask me to recommend a restaurant in Basel. I come here often for family events, and once for a business-related celebration. The food is consistently very good, and the service is fine. It is usually very busy, so we always book ahead... read more

We ordered 2 small glasses of red wine - Esporao (Portugal,Alentejo) 1 dl. Total price 15,20 Sfr., wow. Neither we saw the bottle nor we got any bread or something else. We asked for this - impossible - at 9 pm.

Best dinner I had during BaselWorld 15! I loved the shared ravioli, asparagus risotto with sea bass, & creme brule on fire! Wine was delicious. This is a great place for a group of 8 or 2. I'll go back again!

Last night, my wife and I went out for dinner with 2 friends from China. We booked a table for 4 people at 5 Signori based on good ratings here on Tripadvisor. It turned out to be an excellent choice:I ordered the duck and I have never had a duck that was prepared so tender before in Switzerland. My wife... More

I was taken out to 5 by a friend and we had a fantastic dinner. Seared Scallops, Aberdeen Angus beef and crime brûlée , the food was faultless.

High quality food, specialially the beef was excellent. Veal quit dry..vegetables plate a bit tasteless, ravioli excellent too! Good service, not really prepared for childrens-visit. Not cheap, but good food can't be cheap!

All I can say is wow. Loved this place. Had the full dinner and we shared it. Plenty to eat. The pumpkin soup two ways was great. The ravioli equally good. The suckling pig spectacular. Good wine selection by glass and bottle. Very nice ambience, molecular gastronomy to some degree and beautiful presentation. Pleasant, unobtrusive service. Not a carbonara kind... More

Enjoyed a very nice lunch in this restaurant which was good value for money. There are also some tables outside to enjoy when the weather is nice. To recommend when you are looking for a nice, quiet restaurant close to the railway station

We had dinner here first night in Basel. And I didn't expect Basel to have a quality food in whole town. But 5 Signori is best compare to anywhere in the world. I had Ravioli truffle and my wife had best beef steak

We went for a birthday celebration and had the nicest evening. The food was superb. The ravioli was a showstopping must-have. The service was friendly and efficient. and the ambiance was comfortable and stylish. So glad to have found this gem of a place!
