In my experience Italian restaurants have been quantity over quality, not this place. The restaurant itself is fresh and clean, with a varied menu. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The prices of the food and drink where very reasonable, we enjoyed it so much we went twice! Thoroughly recommended!

Ate here twice on a recent week long holiday in Funchal. Very good food, very friendly staff, really nice surroundings and a great ambiance. Very reasonably priced,mans unlike some of the bars in Funchal, the cocktails are made fresh, and not dispensed from a carton. A must try restaurant if visiting Funchal. You won't be disappointed.

Despite only having a drink, having eaten earlier - sharing an excellent bottle of wine, the food looked scrumptious, the service was faultless and people seemed to be enjoying the whole experience. The ambience is very good too and if we had the opportunity, we would have returned without hesitation to eat!

We dined in Il Basilico, Madeira on two occasions recently - July and Augst 2014. Both experiences were wonderful. On arrival (one booked, the other not booked) we were greeted very warmly and efficiently. The service on both occasions continued in a warm and friendly manner. In spite of the restaurant being busy, we were made to feel at ease,... More

We visited here as we'd walked past a few times & thought it looked nice. We arrived at 6:30pm & had a table outside in the shade which was nice. The service was ok. We felt the the children's menu was quite expensive & no choice to have starters and/or dessert included. Having said that the bread basket was nice... More

Delicious food each time we've eaten here. Best to book a table in advance especially if you want to set outdoors.
